I met Laura and Alistair about 15 minutes before they were due to get married. Quite unusual, but not a problem. No preparation photography, just diving into the crux of it and holding my breath until late into the night. I loved every minute of it. With no rigid set plan, it just flowed. Blessings to you and for your life together. It was a privilege to be a part and to bear witness, my camera and I, to the heart of the matter. Unbelievable humans, welcome Mr and Mrs Laura and Alistair.

Celebrant: Ben Carlyle   Co-ordinator and stylist: Roxy from Frank & Joy   Food: Eatdrink catering

This is certainly not a wedding, but a very welcome and absorbing commission. I felt so much of the human in these beautiful pieces Kirsten created in response to objects and shapes experienced in Margaret Olley`s house that now resides in the Tweed Art Gallery. The exhibition is still on for a little while!
