This was a big one for me. Imogen is one of my dearest friends in life, and when she asked if I was able to film her wedding the answer was a resounding yes. I was overjoyed! It's hard to put into words how much love I have for her, she is one of the most beautiful souls on earth and so deserving of happiness.
June 8th was the wedding day. I travelled from Calgary on June 3rd, with two nights at home in England with my family, before catching the train to Inverness. I haven't set foot on British soil in over six years, and it felt amazing to be back.
When I arrived in Cromarty, where Imogen was getting married, I was able to finally meet her fiance, Al, and his family. My heart was so warmed by the kindness, humour and hospitality of everyone there. I was also thrilled to be introduced to her other family members and close friends from different walks of life. This is the beauty of weddings, they bring people together in beautiful ways.
The wedding ceremony was being held at Cromarty East Church, an incredible chapel that is roughly 700 years old. And the minister was none other than Imogen's own grandad.
People say weddings are a waste of money for a single day's celebration, but they are so much more than that. Because this one day has given me memories I will cherish for life, and truly these things you can't put a price on.
