The Tissue Pass

Pass the Tissue

I had moved away from the couple during their exchange of vows, looking for something different. My choice of location paid off big time when this moment presented itself. The bride’s maid was very much in the moment and shedding a few tears when the Bride’s mother lent over to pass a tissue! A great moment to capture, saying so much, with the Bride and Groom framed in the background.

The longing for long-gone parents

Photos of both brides’ deceased parents were placed at the altar, so they could be with them when they were finally able to get married – after 23 years together. In a quiet moment before the ceremony they paid their respects – and were overcome with emotion.
