Shoneagh and Connor's wedding day last summer was fast paced and filled with energy. Everything, from singing waiters to bagpipes, owls escorting messages and even a first dance sung by the mother of the bride herself all made their way into their day, along with the most spectacular sunset that we had seen all year. Married in St Mary's church in Richmond, they went on to celebrate in style at Walworth Castle. Thank you to you both for your kind words, your warmth and your friendship.
Here are our favorite picks from their day...
How did you meet? How did he propose? What is your story?
'After working away overseas in Canada for over 4 months Conner booked us a 5* all inclusive get away in the sunshine leaving just days after his feet touched down in the UK. On the first night of our holiday he suggested a walk along the beach to have a better look at our new surroundings. We came to a pier which gave us a beautiful view of the evening landscape after I’d finished admiring I turned back around and there he was on one knee.'
What was the most memorable or your favorite part of your wedding day?
'I don’t think we could possibly choose, every single moment was filled with love, happiness and smiles (as cliche as it sounds), we loved that the room was filled with people that mean so much to us. There’s not one thing that we would change.'
Why was photography important to you and why did you choose 2tone Photography ?
'Photography was such an important thing for us because our photographs are the lasting memory of our day that can never fade. Also to be able to capture moments that we didn’t necessarily see during our special day was such a joy to look back on! We chose Nigel and Christina because the quality of their work cannot be compared to, their talent and passion for their work shines through to create simply beautiful photographs, they also made us feel so comfortable in the lead up to and on our special day which is exactly what you need when nerves are kicking in.'
What is your favorite part of being married now?
'Our favorite part of being married is most definitely living together, because of Conner’s work we only actually moved in together after our wedding day! We both love having someone to come home to after a long day, and sharing the workload in the house when we’re busy at different times.'
