This is one I’ve been looking forward to for a long time.  Not only are George and Gary great fun, this was a wedding within walking distance of my house!  No long commute for me and a guaranteed easy day with great clients.  You may want to settle back – there are LOTS of pictures in this one.

Like so many stories, this starts with a dress.  And a tiara.  And some shoes.  And a necklace.  And an “excuse the mess” sign.

Not that it was actually messy – there were just a lot of people getting ready in the room.

Though not everybody was impressed with how things were going….

(That’s a sneaky trick by the way.  That’s a picture on Georgina’s phone from a couple  of days before that I sneakily photographed.  Let’s just say, you had to be there for the conversation about Snapchat to get the joke….)

And of course there were beautiful dresses for the bridesmaids and a pair of wedding rings too.

And then everybody was ready.  George and her team….

Like I say, the pictures are important.  But not too serious….

I always think it’s essential to find a little time to take portraits of the bride and groom alone too.  It’s one of the few times in the day when they get a chance to catch their breath and talk to each other.

Then we were back to the reception where George and Gary’s friends and family were waiting.  Nobody could get bored at a wedding like this but just in case Tom London was there to entertain with his close up magic.

And how’s this for a great memento of the day?  All the guests left their thumbprints and signatures on the wedding tree.

And yes, as usual, there’s just one more picture.  It’s that cathedral again.  You just can’t get away from it.
