The first thing you’ll get whenever you see Sarah is a huge warm hug. The tight and lasting kind of hug that is warm and genuine, and lets you know that you belong somewhere in her heart.
Sarah and I spent some time together for a brief few weeks at a hospital placement, about four and a half years ago. It was during this time that I got to know a beautiful person, inside and out, who didn’t judge me for my failures and helped me out during my difficult times. Yet you see, people always focus on the bride at weddings, but somehow I have a feeling that Sarah has moulded into who she is today because of the eight years she spent with Markus. And together they are a really strong couple, and I know they have found the right one for each other.
When we were walking across the fields yesterday, Sarah told me that she had a dream the night before the wedding, of a conversation we had four years ago – that one day she will have me photograph her wedding when she gets married. I guess we made it happen after all.
To go from being friends, to having the responsibility of documenting their most special day is a gift that I’m really thankful to be given. I was there yesterday as a friend, and I had goosebumps when she walked down the aisle, laughed when they were happy, and had tears down my face during the speeches.
Dear Sarah, I may not have become a physiotherapist eventually but I gave life my best shot. Ending up where I am now and being able to photograph your wedding, could possibly be the best twist in the story yet and the best present that I can ever give to you.
