Claire and Adriaan's wedding at St John's church, Warley and the Holiday Inn, Clifton - 18 July 2009
Today Claire and Adriaan married at St John's church in Warley, Halifax. Their ceremony was made all the more special as Claire's dad, Stephen is a vicar and it was his privilege to marry his beautiful daughter, Claire to her lovely groom, Ady. Claire's mum, Susan accompanied her to the church and then handed over to dad, Stephen to do the honours. To share this day was very special for us too, as we photographed Ady's brother Stevan's wedding just over two years ago. It was great to see some familiar faces! We are privileged to be asked to share a wedding day but to be asked to share a sibling's wedding too is very humbling. After completing the family group photographs inside the church, we left for the Holiday Inn in Clifton near Brighouse for the reception. After dinner and a hilarious speech from Ady's other brother, Kristiaan, who flew over from the United States to share the best man's responsibilities with Stevan, it was outside for some fun shots with Claire, Ady and their attendants who were great fun and really up for a laugh. We followed these with some romantic shots of the couple together. We would like to thank you both for inviting us to share your special day and we hope that you are enjoying a fabulous honeymoon.
"We both just want to reiterate how beautiful our pictures are. You have both done an absolutely amazing job and so many people have complimented you both this week, having seen our lovely photos. You came to us highly recommended and we would like you to know that should we ever need any photography in the future, we will definitely come to you. We will (and currently have been doing) recommend you to our friends/family etc. You worked so hard before, during and after our wedding day to give us some amazing pictures that really capture such a wonderful day....THANK YOU."
