If there’s anything these gatherings of recent years have taught me, it’s that people, like weddings, are a combination of flawed and beautiful. Rarely does everything run perfectly and rarely are we perfect. Photographing for you is one thing but doing so through your eyes have made me realised how truly similar we all are at the core. We have all struggled with one thing or another and when our world gets ugly so many times we question if it’s the circumstances we are wrapped in or just our human failings. But most often than not I believe we are simply people and we are worthy of forgiveness and grace. I find moments of clarity as I see you all up on stages standing in front of the ones you love and I feel lucky to hear your stories. More and more through your words it becomes apparent to me that we are all connected in beautiful and inexplicable ways.
