Somerset Wedding Photographer Elly & Liam Tipi Wedding

Today I want to share this image with you and tell you the story behind it.

This was taken at the wedding of Elly & Liam a couple of weeks ago in Staffordshire at their Tipi Wedding. It's not a technically brilliant photograph, it's a bit orange because of the colour of the canvas and it's not going to win any awards, but it's a very special photograph. You see, in the photo are the groom's parents and his two sisters and the bride's dad. They had got together in secret ahead of the wedding to learn how to play three songs for Elly & Liam. Two they had written themselves for the couple and one which Elly had written about Liam a while back (they make music together in more ways than one).

At the end of the speeches Liam's Dad, Ross announced that there was a little surprise and this is what happened.

It was a moment to cherish, a moment I was honoured to be able to witness and a moment that Elly & Liam will be taken back to instantly when they look at this photo, even when they're old and grey, and that to me is what wedding photography is all about.

If you want to hear the song from Elly to Liam then here it is below
