The Only Exception : No Holding Us Back

To Love another with all your heart does not always come easy to everyone but all of us have that one person who is The Only Exception. Lexi & Marc are clearly each others’ exceptions and their excitement & joy of getting married was contagious on the day. They did not hold back on their emotions and neither did their family and friends , tears and laughter were a plenty on the day and it made for some great story telling as I snapped away and ended up with images so unique and emotional it made me laugh out loud and even shed a tear; as I sat here in headquarters working through them all.

Ps. The REALLY unique ones I couldn’t share on my blog but trust me everyone had a really good time at this wedding 😉 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-001 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-002 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-003 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-004 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-005 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-007 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-008 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-009 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-010 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-011 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-012 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-013 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-014 SamanthaClifton-TheOnlyException-RealWedding-015

Lexi’s beautiful dress was gifted to her by a dear friend who owns a Bridal Boutique in the UK and who couldn’t be at the wedding. It is gestures like these that showed you how much these two exceptional people are loved by the ones they call family & friends.

Love is in the Details

The beautiful antique hair piece Lexi wore was worn by her grandmother on her wedding day. Not one to focus on material details Lexi chose to surround herself with sentimental little touches that made the day extra emotional.

There is a moment before you walk down the aisle when you realise this is it and as a newly wed, I can honestly say these are the moment you remember forever. It is exciting and emotional and sometimes you need a little help from your friends to get you through it.

In the words of Dale , Lexi’s make up artist, when you look at these images and you know the bride & groom , you can feel their excitement and even hear Lexi’s signature squeak as she got to the front of the chapel. The day started on this high note and just continued to be rich with excitement & joy.

Damn right it’s better than yours!!

These two broke the mold by entertaining guests with Kelis’s Milkshake as they excited the chapel after their I Dos.  It generated quite some giggles and fun as the newly wed couple made their appearance.
