A few years ago I photographed Claire and Dale’s wedding at the Oyster Box. It was such a memorable day that I fell a little bit in love with the Gilman family. Claire is one half of the Gilman twins, and although not identical they are pretty darn close!
I was so happy when Claire contacted me to photograph Ashleigh’s wedding and by some twist of fate I was free. I was even more delighted to find out that Drew Christie was also free to do hair and Charelle to do make up. To get 3 wedding service providers all free on a weekend less than 4 months in advance is near impossible and I am convinced there was divine intervention in this case. It was like a big reunion as we all worked together at Claire’s wedding.
Ashleigh and Frank got married in the garden where Ash grew up. The reception was held in a marquee that was erected over the tennis court. They didn’t have loads of speeches or a sit down formal dinner, it was all very casual and I can definitely say this wedding one of the biggest parties of 2015! For her photos Ash kept it very casual to the point where there were no family formal pics and the shortest couple portrait session ever. I absolutely loved this wedding and Liz has put it in her top three of the year.
Ash and Frank thanks so much for picking me to capture your big day. So much love and luck for your future together as Mr and Mrs.
