Jo and Steve....a Caribbean theme...and an owl!

On the 15th May the sun was shining on the small village of Heighington where they were gearing up for the wedding local lass Jo to her the handsome Steve. When I think back to this wedding there are a few things that really stick in my head...

1. Colour. Jo had chosen a Caribbean theme and the bold colours shone through, from the different coloured bridesmaid dresses to the truly stunning table decor. The oversized cocktail glass centrepieces were absolutely amazing!

2. The owl that flew down the aisle to the best man with the rings!! This was a first for me and all manner of 'things that could go wrong' were running around in my mind. Thankfully none of those things happened and it was a fantastic spectacle! The owl also came to The George and attracted some attention from the guests.

3. The warmth and love I felt from the couple themselves and all their friends and family.

Jo and Steve have just recently approved their album and as we speak it's winging it's way to the lab. I can't wait to see this album 'in the flesh' and I am pleased to share a few pages with you.

I also want to share with you Jo's thoughts about the 'Karen McGowran Experience'!

You just know "IT" when you see "IT" and from the moment we looked on Karens website we knew she was "IT".......Karen is a friendly, bubbly, vibrant person and we knew instantly that she was the right photographer to tackle our bright vibrant some what unusual wedding!

So we booked Karen to be the photographer on our special day and she has been great! Nothing has been too big or too small for her.

She has a wonderful skill of taking photos to suit different couples personalities, if you look at her albums you will find that no couples wedding pictures are alike they each show each couples wedding and personalities differently, Karen doesn't just take pictures she has the ability to capture movement and life in her stills which is a great skill to have.

Her skill at what she does is just second to none and out of 800 plus photos we can honestly can say there is not one picture which we dont like. Everyone has commented on what a fabulous album we have and it is all down to Karen.

We and our families got on with Karen like a house on fire on the day and she blended in so well we hardly knew she was there, we met with Karen a week before the wedding at our venue and she went through everything with us in detail in order to ensure she would capture the day as we wanted.

She was full of advice and made us feel at ease and you can really tell that weddings arent just a job to her but a genuine passion!

Our photos were ready within a week to look at and she even managed to put some on my facebook page the very next day which we were able to look at on our honeymoon, which was a lovely touch from her.

You truly feel like a special couple to Karen opposed to just another number on a ever lasting conveyor belt.

We would urge everyone to take a moment to look at Karens albums, and then book her for your special day as she is perfect and you wont be disappointed.

Thank you Karen you were a dream to work with and have produced us with a album we could only have dreamt of and we will cherish it forever!

Kind Regards
