‘Surprise! We’re getting married!’

… Perhaps not the words expected when you’re attending an engagement party, but oh what fun. Ben and Lindsey’s surprise wedding was just that – so much fun. I have lots and lots of images of laughter, smiles and hugs. There was something so very down to earth and relaxed about the way the whole afternoon went – from watching Ben and Lindsey get ready together (yes! in the same room!), to close family arriving with excited and hushed whispers (they were mostly in on the surprise), right up to the much anticipated ceremony. A magical night spent under the fairy lights in Lindsey’s parents backyard. Congratulations to one of the most gorgeous couples I have ever had the pleasure of photographing, I feel honored that I was part of such an exciting night.
