HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY – ONE FOR ALL THE MUMS OUT THERE

It’s Mother’s Day, so no better time to blog about all the lovely mums out there, by showing a few moments during my time at weddings where the mums have all…, well, just being mum.

Mum and Dads play an extremely important and emotional part in the day, mum with the dress fitting and the selfless fountain of advice makes her the cornerstone of weddings week in week out all over the world, there’s no doubt, and where Dads predominantly are more exposed ( sorry not sorry for the pun ) to being photographed at weddings, as with the walking down the aisle, seeing daughter in her wedding dress for the first time, and of course the opening speech, they seem to get the lion’s share of lens time between the two parents, and along with the bank of Mum & Dad in most cases being used kindly and in full flow why shouldn’t they have more than just a cameo role in their son/daughters day. 

So I have put a little blog together, with a nod to all the mums there on the big day, but unfortunately this isn’t always the case, like I have seen, and emotions run to another level in some cases where mums are just sadly not around, for one reason or another, where a hug off a friend or family member at the right time is equally as comforting, as if it were from mum itself.

At the end of this blog are a couple of pictures of my lovely wife Sarah, on the beach with our twin boys Elliott and Ross, and daughter Rose, with their very own Mummy, and also a photo of myself with my own Mam, she’s a good un fair play too!!  But I want to just briefly mention the last two images on this blog, two signifcant pictures, with being the most poignant set of pictures that I have ever captured at any wedding day, this is of the lovely bride Jenny, and her mum. Jenny’s mum sadly lost her battle with illness not long after these photos were taken, so these two single images in my opinion sum up the power and emotion of photojournalism.  

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling, if you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures”. – Don McCullin, Photojournalist.

Happy Mothers Day to each and everyone, and especially to loved ones no longer with us. 

Thanks for your time.
