(seriously, how gorgeous are they?)
Within our social circle I was famous for always having my camera attached to me, so when their photographer took unwell shortly before the wedding, Gary called me & asked me to step in as official photographer. “Sure!” I said, naively.
And so theirs was my first ever wedding job.
(the venue was Burnhouse Manor, Ayrshire, which would become a favourite haunt in our social circle for many years to come)
Gary & Julie’s wedding was special to me for lots of reasons, reasons I wouldn’t appreciate for many years to come. Emotionally, I attach memories of having been dating my now-husband for a mere 12 days at their wedding, and wishing intensely he was with me there. Even though it was early days for us, I knew he was the one and remember boring people senseless talking about him at the reception. Also, it was the start of my love affair shooting weddings. Who knew? I was absolutely hooked. Just weeks later I had my next wedding booked and off I went.
I still love these images, they bring it all back and I love the film colours of them. I printed out about 300 for them (I remember just dumping them on poor Gary in a plastic bag one day – classy!) and have very few copies myself but here they are anyway.
So, **Congratulations guys!** Out of all our married friends these guys are two of the coolest & most fun to be with and we miss them a lot. A decade of happy marriage in these days is nothing to be sniffed at & we hope to celebrate another 10 years with them in the future.
