Their wedding was a secret.
Yup, from all but a few people who helped them plan their special day. Holly and Raf were going to be celebrating their son's baptism on that day. Somewhere along the line, they decided that since their closest friends and family would already be gathered, they'd also tie the knot. And after they decided to get married on that day, they also decided it would be a big surprise for everyone.
Holly and I met for coffee just a few days before. My family already had our invitation for the day; so I thought perhaps she was going to ask me to take some photos. And yes, she did want photos, but not for what I'd originally thought!
They swore me to secrecy. I told my husband that would be taking photos of the baptism, but then had to make an excuse to sneak away to the Reverend's office, where I took photos of the dress and accessories, and then the bride changing in a flash!
Although there wasn't much time to prepare, it was a beautiful day, and it was indeed a huge surprise for all! After the ceremony, we celebrated both occasions at Raf's parent's home, in their gorgeous garden. Here are a few highlights from the day, and I wish Holly and Raf nothing but happiness and joy for a lifetime to come - love you both xoxo!!
