Siblings {July 2014}

Going to a wedding earlier in the month provided me with lots of opportunities to capture Meg and Eli together.  

I have to admit, I don’t think weddings are complete without children.  There’s something about the formal environment which just brings out the best in little kids; think skidding on knees across dance floors and rolling down hills in the middle of the photo-taking.  I don’t know what it is…maybe they just know that their parents need and want them to stay nice and clean looking and so they actively pursue the opposite!  Or is that just my two?!

Meg and Eli were inseparable at the wedding and I loved seeing their mischief-making.  From racing across the beautiful lawns to trying to climb the great bronze horse in the grounds, they really embraced the whole ‘kids at a wedding’ thing and got many appreciative smiles because of it.

Probably a good job they weren’t part of the bridal party though.  I think we’ll have to work on their faces for my brother’s wedding next month!

I am linking this post up with the Siblings project which is hosted by Dear Beautiful and a number of other fantastic bloggers.

    They look gorgeous in their wedding attire, and I do like the black and white. My two have yet to go to a wedding, and I dread to think of the chaos and mess they'd get into!

    I agree weddings are brilliant with kids. At our wedding we had a few kids on the dance floor it was great. I love your photos x

    Children are so cute when they feel free to show off to the adults! Nothing cuter than 'showing off'! Is another word for having maximum fun!

    Hahaha, kids at weddings is definitely hard work for parents. They do seem to seek mischief more just because they know they shouldn't. But these photos are adorable, and I often think the contrast of children having fun against the formalities of a weddings red great. x

    I'm dreading my nephew's wedding in August as I have a 2 year old and an 8 year old as well as my westie. I am envisaging the three of them running riot and bring the marque tent down.

    how lovely they played together, I always dread a full day invite from friends but i bet it gets easier as they get older!

    I think its because it's happy mischief that it makes it so much fun to watch – even if it isn't quite so much fun to chase after! And to be honest who wouldn't want to have a go at climbing a big bronze horse if you were little enough to get away with it! Lovely pictures, and a lovely story to go with them 🙂
