Whilst the family knew that her time was short, John had really hoped that his mum would be able to attend the ceremony.
During the final moments of her life, John’s mother told him that the wedding should go ahead regardless, with or without her. Following her death, the wedding was held as planned, and John married Sarah.
As the photographer, it’s our job to capture the emotion and spirit of each wedding we attend. Which often leads us to becoming emotionally involved ourselves. We knew that this particular occasion was going to be difficult for everyone, including us.
We wiped aside our own tears and were honored to be be a part of this occasion, which was filled with love and joy, despite the tragic circumstances.
