Last weekend I found myself at the lovely Millbrook Estate in Devon to capture the elopement of Heike and Steven. More than just a wedding venue, it's a secluded grounds that specialises in intimate weddings. Heike and Steven travelled down from London to spend a week in Devon, and hold a a very special ceremony with just each other and a couple of witnesses in attendance. When it's stripped back like this it really emphasisies the special words shared during the ceremony. Especially as the registrar, Ali, reads the classic Morcombe and Wise song...
“Bring me Sunshine, in your smile. Bring me Laughter, all the while,
In this world where we live, there should be more happiness,
So much joy you can give, to each brand new bright tomorrow…”
I'd never took the time to listen to the lyrics in this way, and if you read the rest of the song it now seems so obvious, this should be included in every wedding ceremony!
