Happy Birthday Lara!
Well, I’m working on an epic (probably a two parter) blog post for Lara and Harry’s wedding, but as today is Lara’s Birthday I thought I’d quickly post their pre-wedding Together Session while I’m working away.
When I met Lara and Harreth at Lara’s parent’s house – (The absolute finest home made almond biscotti you will ever taste, by the way, though not for the feint hearted) – we hit it off straight away. I fell in love with them both, and the whole thing was all about that kind of excitement that tells you that fairly soon someone is going to burst.
I could quickly tell that the reason for this is because Lara and Harry are exactly the kind of people who do straight away, no nonsense, get on with it life living that we’re all secretly jealous of but immediately smitten by. It’s that kind of contagious that you want to catch something from.
I don’t need to explain this to anybody that knows them – it’s just who they are. They live all over the world, and they’re always at home. They have extended their friendships in all walks of life and they appear to be nomadic and in-between, yet they have one of the most secure and loving family backgrounds that I think I have ever seen. They are multinational and at home wherever they are. Every time I bump into Lara on instagram she’s in another capital city, on another hen do, or seeing a friend off on some round the world and back yacht race. I know – it makes you sick.
Well it might if they weren’t such lovely people. Warm, cuddly, inviting. And that’s just their guests!
Their wedding was what I have come to refer to as ‘The Wedding of the Century’, at least to me, and part of that started here on their pre-wedding shoot, as they landed in the UK just a week before their wedding.
That one is to come…
Happy Birthday Lara – give Harry a cuddle from me xx
