Any Other Photo {Bethan and John}

This photo makes me grin. Very very much. If you’ve ever wondered what a wedding  photographer chooses as their favourite wedding photo, you can rest assured, it’s one of joy.  Love, support, family, friends, joy.  Lighting and composition and filtering and other photography phenomena are mentioned not once.  

Happy Friday, readers.  Go call someone in your family and tell them you love them.  

Over to Bethan:  

Photo taken by Bethan’s sister, her other half atHaywood Jones Photography 
I have this picture framed and on my wall.
The reason I love this photo so much is that to me it sums up the spirit of our wedding day. Me and my hubby, newly hitched, hitting the road for the start of a new adventure in our Morris Minor.
Me and my fella love a good road trip, and have spend many hours/days/months tootling about the UK and beyond in a variety of old cars and vans. As I write this, we have an old VW camper on the drive just waiting for a bit of life to be breathed into it so we can head off on the next chapter.
Even after being engaged to John for 10 years before we actually got hitched, getting married felt like a whole new thing, something special and new.
The biggest reason I think this photo sums up our day so beautifully is that all of our nearest and dearest are smiling. All our friends and family, the happy faces in the photo, waving us off, wishing us well and sending with us their love.
You can tackle just about anything in life if you know you have love and support behind you, and I am forever grateful to have the amazing husband, family and friends that I do.
Life would be pretty sucky without you lot.

    I think the sentiments in this AOP mean it had just entered into my Top 5 AOP. I shall start Friday reflecting on this fact. Thank you Bethan & happy travelling!

    Such a pretty picture and what a great moment in time captured for you! Aww. Ben and I drove off from our wedding too -albeit in a less beautiful car (a rented blue Ford Focus!) – and it was so fun!
