Sarah & James chose the magical setting at Sandhurst to tie the knot at the incredible site of the Military Academy. The sun rose early and shone strong from the first glimpse of morning through till the dimming of lights down by the lakeside on a day bathed in love, laughter and friendship. It was a pleasure to be chosen as the wedding photographer to take pictures for such a lovely couple.
If you drew up a checklist of the ‘amazing day’ and let your imagination go a little wild with your wishes, then you’ve probably got a near comparison to the culmination of different venues at Sandhurst Military Academy. Your vows and solemn promises made under arches concreted in tradition and service to others, walking hand in hand from steps of a few years back when graduating, to the drinking among friends and family under the leaves of trees surrounded by a lake where you’ll row a boat with your wife as your guests look on in joy.
It’s a very hard thing to multi-task. I struggle through being a guy when not being a wedding photographer, but when focusing on capturing the little bits of magic through the day it’s an even harder thing to do. I try my best to listen as speeches are made and stories told in what is often a prime time to capture the little tears and rivets of laughter, but often fail to hear the importance of the words that are spoken at such a time in a wedding day. Not, however here and on this day. There’s a flow to a wedding day of celebration that’s noticeable if you follow it through from start to finish. It’s often when we’re sat in the car on the way home (after spending the night getting lost in the female only mess accommodation and without any footwear) that we draw upon the wedding day and breathe, “Wow, what a day”! Sarah & James we wish you both the continuation of this day through the rest of your years.
If anybody does wish (as they will) to have a perfect wedding day, where your hopes are met and the start of life together is set, then we hope these pictures will suffice to that hope.
We hope you enjoy the following pictures as much as we enjoyed being the wedding photographers for Sarah & James at the Sandhurst Military Academy.
