Real Weddings: Surprise Vow Renewal : I Still Do And I Always Will (Part 2)

celebrant (me) with Mr & Mrs Popat

I love talking about my real weddings.

On the 4th May Sunil and Sejal Popat renewed their vows on their 25th Wedding Anniversary.  It was an intimate and incredibly romantic afternoon at Squirrels Nest.  A total surprise to Sejal, with Sunil winning the “Husband of the Year – Most Romantic Man” category by surprising his wife with the location for their anniversary mini break, fully catered with a private chef, a proposal to marry him again, a new ring, a wedding dress, AND a fully prepared vow renewal ceremony complete with professional photographer.

I couldn’t wait to share it with you and wrote part 1 pretty much straight after I got home.  You can read it here.

I now have access to the professional photos and wanted to share with you a few of my favourites and give a big shout out to Liv Pix, who’d I’d met a few weeks earlier at the Unconventional Wedding Fair at The Shack Revolution, Hereford.  Liv came good at short notice to step in when, with a couple of weeks notice Sunil asked me to find him a professional photographer for the day.

Whenever I work with a couple be it real weddings, vow renewals, gratitude ceremonies, anniversary celebrations, I offer them two stories, 1 with my candid photos and a follow up if they’ve given me access to any professional pictures.
