Wedding Day : Father Of The Bride First Look25  Jul 2014         Jessica Ratty

One of my favourite parts of a wedding day, is when the Bride's Father see's her for the first time in her gown before she is about to be married. So usually we don't let Dad see the Bride until she is completely ready with her veil and gown on. Then Dad can come in and see his Daughter for the first time as a Bride, it is always such a sweet and emotional moment. 

The next Father of The Bride First Look, is one of the most beautiful moments I have ever photographed at a wedding. They are from Sharon & Kevin's wedding in September. Originally they were suppose to be getting married the January before hand, but unfortunately Sharon's Dad was diagnosed with cancer and was having treatment, so they wanted to move it until he would be better. Just before the wedding, I was told that they don't know what is going to happen and they don't know how long he will have. Less than 3 weeks earlier, my own Father in Law passed away from cancer and he wasn't able to attend our wedding because he was too ill... In the lead up to both of our weddings, Sharon and I were keeping each other updated on each Father's cancer journey and what was happening.

So I knew how important these images would be and how we would have given anything to have them from our wedding. So on the day, I made sure that I captured as many beautiful moments of Sharon and her Father together as I could. This was his reaction when he saw her for the first time... it was a really emotional and beautiful moment. These are some of my favourite photos from their wedding day, just because they are so pure and filled with so much meaning and love. Sadly, since the wedding Sharon's Father has passed away from cancer, so these images have become even more meaningful.
