{Win Your Wedding Photography} Shortlist - Kalie & Clare

Here I have a little catch up with Kalie & Clare who have been shortlisted for the {Win Your Wedding Photography} Competition. They are getting married at Barnsley Register Office on 14th October 2011

How did you meet?A Mutual friend introduced us in Chicago Rock at their gay night Camp Rock, I was out with my uncle celebrating his birthday, and Clare was out with friends. We have been inseparable ever since. I knew straight away Clare was the person I wanted to grow old with. Luckily for all of us my daughter and Clare felt the same way.

Why did you choose your Wedding Date?
We chose our Wedding Date because we initially wanted the 12th of October as it is the anniversary of the day we met, but many friends and family wouldn't be able to attend mid week. Clare's family will have to travel for the wedding and a lot of the places we enquired at had higher prices at the weekend, so we chose the Friday.

Where is your Venue?
Our venue will be the registry office in town. I always dreamed of a big church wedding like most girls, but unfortunately the church still doesn't recognize gay weddings. We looked at several lovely venues but ultimately decided the ceremony itself is more important than the setting. We just want the world to see that we are a happy fully committed family unit.

Our reception will be as traditional as any other, all our friends and family will be at the reception at the Solace. We choose this as its fairly central but also right next door to travel lodge for all the guest needing hotel rooms.

Any more information regarding the Wedding?
I will still be wearing my dream dress, Clare will be wearing a Suit. My daughter Emily and Clare's niece Claudia will be out bridesamids. Luckily my mum will be making my wedding dress and the bridesmaids outfits, wiastcoats etc. Clare is a Chef so thats the food arranged. Her friend specializes in wedding cakes so another ticked box. We dont really want to give away too much regarding colours and themes as we want to surprize our guests, but we are hoping it will be a relaxed fun celebration for everyone to enjoy and remember.

How long have you been engaged?
We got engaged in December 2010

How did the proposal come about?
We were at a friends engagement party, when Clare asked me to marry her. I immediately said yes

What would winning this competition mean to you?
Winning would mean the world to us, as any young couple working and bringing up a child know, money is always an issue, we are hoping to have a fantastic day, but not get ourselves into debt doing so. Photographs are the one thing you keep long after the day is over, we would love to have real photographs to cherish forever not rely on snapshots from friends cameras and phone to capture the special day we marry.

Kalie & Clare's origional email:We think we should win because we are a young gay couple who both work as well as fetching up a young child so we are finding the expenses of our wedding building up, and would like more then anything to had some nice photos of our special day so we will have them always and forever.
