Fate led them to one another. It was whilst pedaling from London to Paris in aid of Help for Hero’s that Carl first set his sights on Tori, then in a heartbeat, she was gone. Only fate intervened and joined the pair in the same carriage on the train ride home. It was there at that moment he knew she was the one.
After a whirlwind few months of turbulent emotions due to the truly inspirational Carl rowing the Atlantic Ocean with some fellow injured ex comrades they were finally together forever. From then on they have been inseparable.
Carl proposed to Tori at the end of a sun-drenched jetty whilst holidaying in the Maldives and of course she said yes!
Wedding day plans were soon put into motion and this truly amazing day was created.
Sat perched on the rolling Purbeck Hills of the South Coast of England is Lulworth Castle, a perfect setting for a beautiful princess and her handsome doting and devoted Prince to declare their love for one another.
Knowing Tori’s passion and love for horses and to really make her perfect day come true Carl arranged a horse drawn carriage to carry his precious cargo to the stairs of her dreams.
Their love for each other radiated into the hearts and souls of all that surrounded them that day.
The warmth of the sunshine and the softness of its rays were truly a spectacle and in many ways a gift from those who were looking down on them from heaven.
Tori & Carl, thank you for allowing me the honour of not only being your firend and your guest but also being your wedding photographer, it was truly the most wonderful day.
Big thanks also go to all of the below suppliers with a super special mention to Irene and Sam of Irene Pierra films for being the best creative companions. It was so much fun working alongside people who saw what you saw and squeaked as much as I did at the beauty of it all. I can’t wait to see the wedding video!
