One of the things that I’ve learned about weddings is that they are all different.  Just like people.  Some clients like to book me 2 years or so in advance for 400 guests in a castle.  And then there are other clients.  Like Olajumoke and Phillips.

They called me on a Wednesday afternoon to ask about my availability for a small local wedding.

Sure – where is it?  “Wellington House in Canterbury”.  Great news – that’s my local register office.  I’ve covered weddings hundreds of miles away so it’s nice to have one I can walk to.

How small?  “Just the 2 of us and 3 guests”.  No worries.  The smallest wedding I’ve ever covered was 4 people and the biggest was over 1,000.  There are no rules.

Oh, when is it?  “10 am.”  Um, when?  “Tomorrow.”  Easy.  the diary is free, I can put the cameras on charge and be there with no drama.

And so, just a few hours later I was on my way to Wellington House Canterbury on a wet Thursday.  Olajumoke and Phillips had selected a very no frills package for their wedding.  Here are the bride and groom together in the waiting room before the wedding.

It took place in an upstairs office rather than the grand ceremony room downstairs.  Just as well there were only 3 guests – it only holds 6 people including me!

But that’s plenty of space for a few close friends.

And of course in autumn…even the carpark looks pretty good for pictures.

At most weddings I try to get all the guests in one or two shots.  Here it wasn’t so hard…

And then briefly on to the Victoria Hotel for a small intimate reception and a final couple of pictures.
