original civil wedding

The traditional white wedding in front of a priest is nice but this couple had a really moving and fun civil wedding ceremony.

First up, the celebrant, Matt, was a close friend of the couple.  What actually made the day even more special for me was that I had photographed Matt’s wedding a couple of years before so it was great to catch up with him, his wife and new born baby.

With Matt in charge of the ceremony it was going to be special but the couple also got friends to ask the vows. Three friends from each of the bride and groom lined up at the front and took turns to ask funny, serious, silly and moving questions as vows to the couple. I love civil weddings as they really bring out the special character of the bride and groom individually and who they are as a couple.
