Groom? Professional wedding photographer.

Bride? Professional wedding photographer.

Guests? A heady blend of pro and semi pro photographers – and what appeared to be the groom’s entire camera club.

One of my clients told me last week that I have a style that’s very like a film – and I realised it’s true. I always love the shots that spark memories and place you right back exactly where you were and exactly how you felt on the wedding day.

And certainly nobody there could forget Mavis’ hilarious reading from “With Great Pleasure” by Alec Reid. But in case they did then just the words “Hopeful Proposal to a Young Lady of the Village” should do it….
