And the winner is… The Springles!
Our congratulations go to Ash and Kat of The Springles, the winners of our August 2017 Picture of the Month. This picture shows such joy on the faces of the couple, Lissie and Matt, as they leave the church as husband and wife. Ash described this as a ‘miracle’, as, just four days earlier, their world had been turned upside down in the most heartbreaking way…
“This image is actually of Kat’s sister, Lissie, and her husband, Matt. We’d originally told them that we thought it was best if they booked other photographers for their wedding day, as we were worried about balancing our family duties and our role as their photographers. But they twisted our arms, and we agreed. We were massively looking forward to it, and the news that Lissie was pregnant made everything even more exciting.
“Then, four days before the wedding, Kat received a call from Lissie – the worst had happened. Lissie had miscarried the baby at 12 weeks. At that point, when the world seemed to be caving in around us all, we didn’t even know if the wedding would go ahead. As you can imagine, it was the last thing they wanted to be doing.
“Fortunately, after late nights talking, a lot of comfort food, and a lot of love, Lissie and Matt decided that despite the horrors of the days before, they loved each other more than ever, and they wanted to make it down the aisle.
