When my wife Brydie told me about Sarah (right of picture) and what she was going through, my heart dropped.
Sarah, the most gentle, loving friendly soul, is enduring advanced-stage terminal cancer. Cancer is something I am no stranger too among our own friends and family, as I am sure many of you have been touched by this horrible disease.
Sarah is a regular visitor and client of Brydie over at the Dog Education Center, and given the outlook, both Sarah and her partner Naree made the decision to bring their wedding plans forward and make the most of the now-limited time they have. When I heard the news, among many may others, I had no hesitation in putting my hand up to provide their photography (at my cost) as I know how important these moments and memories are, as well as how hard their situation is, and will be going forward.
On Saturday – we all, and in particular Sarah, proved that right now, there is a ton of upside. Documenting this beautiful ceremony was profound, moving and inspiring. Everyone rallied – and brought together one of the best weddings I have ever attended. Yes all weddings are amazing… this one was on another level. Sarah was incredible, ditching a wheelchair to stand and be with Naree.
Sarah and Naree you are both ray-of-light and it was an honor to be there for you.
Hope you both love these photos – your day was/is one of the highlights of my career.
Will visit again soon with B – Pete
