Flipbook! Adam and Lorna’s Wedding, Dudley

April 6th, 2010

On the way back from Chris and Vic­to­ri­a’s Wed­ding in Pre­ston, we stopped off at a lit­tle hotel in a vil­lage called Kinver.
We met up with Adam and Lor­na in the hotel where they would be hold­ing their reception.

It was quite a late meet up, con­sid­er­ing they were get­ting mar­ried just three weeks later.
This was the first time that we had met, and they also hap­pened to be the first cou­ple to find me through face­book. (Lor­na went to school with one of my future grooms who I had tagged on facebook).

We had the usu­al chat about their day and about how they met and then, some­thing dawned upon me and I hope that nobody takes offence at this.
Adam and Lor­na are almost exact­ly like the major­i­ty of my oth­er couples. 

That’s not a bad thing, in fact it made me feel fantastic!
It meant that oth­er than tak­ing pic­tures that appeal to peo­ple, I’m doing some­thing that is attract­ing the same “type” of peo­ple to me.
It just so hap­pens that the peo­ple that I am attract­ing enough for them to book me, are the fun­ni­est, smartest, relaxed, in love and down to earth cou­ples ever.
I don’t know what it is that I’m doing, so I’ll just stick to what I’m doing in the hopes that I con­tin­ue to work with the worlds best Brides and Grooms.

I find that a lit­tle strange, but in no way am I fight­ing it.
So, to my future cou­ples who have booked me; Thank you! (times a million)
And to cou­ples who haven’t booked me yet; If you’ve got any doubts about me as a per­son, I’m prob­a­bly not the guy for you!

Thanks for read­ing that, I found it hard to get down in words just because it’s not the eas­i­est thing to explain.

So, we tried some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent for the wed­ding that I shot for Adam and Lor­na on Saturday.
Jes­si­ca joined me which was bril­liant as she was an incred­i­ble asset to me.
She stood at the back of the church and record­ed the Flip­book that you’ll find below.

This was the per­fect rem­e­dy for work­ing in a church that allowed very very few pic­tures to be tak­en, hence why you don’t see me mov­ing around too much. Luck­i­ly, we had free reign for the rest of the day!
You’ll see more pic­tures from their bril­liant wed­ding lat­er on in the week.

For Jes­si­ca’s first attempt, I say she did amaz­ing­ly! Look out for more Josephyarrow.com Flipbooks!
Well done Jessica.

I’ve watched this prob­a­bly about 20 times now, and each time I notice some­thing new!
