Dear Nicola and Mark,
Hey…what a day. It flew by didn’t it! I’m amazed sometimes just how fast a wedding day can go. Especially the good ones. Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for having me along. It was a pleasure to be there. Here are a few of the things that I loved. Jean…I loved how she just wanted to take care of me. Bless. The windows upstairs. How cheeky you all got to spy on the boys. I wonder how you would have taken it if the tables were turned (cue shrieking). Speaking of the boys, it was great to go on a bit of walkies with them before the ceremony. Great fun and they even behaved :) I love the role reversal with your children (can I call them that given their age?) keeping you both in line, calm and getting you there in time. Thanks for your trust…I appreciate that. I loved that Mark’s eldest did a speech and even did THAT joke (more on that later). I loved how they all seem to get on well…did you bribe them with iPhones? I loved the fact that Mark met his Best Man when the Best Man’s son fell over and hurt himself as a wee lad and Mark was the doctor on call. I loved your families…from Clooney to the Supermodel, the mad Oboeist to the Laughing (constantly) sister. I know there were more. I loved that Hen Night photo (my eyes, my eyes!). To all the family, friends, guests and more important Nicola and Mark. Thanks for making it ace!
Yep, its a Tithe Barn, Hampshire wedding which was briefly preceeded by a trip to Portsmouth for a wedding in the Cathedral. There…that’s the Google rubbish out of the way.
Dress on a wire
Now we know what happened to spare parts left over from the Large Hadron Collider
Ugly people deserve great wedding photos too (you need to speak to Sophie mate)
For once it wasn’t just the Bride’s tummy that was turning upside down
No Mr Photographer…you can’t take any photos. Its disruptive and takes away from the spirtual feeling of the wedding. Of course we don’t mind if random folks walk in from off the street and watch or that you’ll get set upon by a crazy at the back saying ‘look, another two meet their doom’ (seriously) and finally the book shop…nope it won’t cause any problems either…tills are a great accent to ‘Love Divine’ — bit like in Pink Floyd’s ‘Money’. Grrrrrr…
When cheese ferments its time change the cheese
Due to a mix up in urinology, apple juice will not be served today
I love this guy
One camera and a few pics of Long Dong Silver can really get a crowd a goin’
I’m guessing that until this point they still think I was photographing them
What size margarita did you get THAT from?
Tithe Road Truckers
The Not So Brady Bunch…we need another Marsha!
When all else fails……
There is probably only ONE thing more uncomfortable than having to give a speech for your Dad at a wedding….
…and that would be Dad having to hear his son deliver the old “a speech shouldn’t last any longer than it takes for a man to make love” joke
Were you born in a barn? No, but sometimes it feels like it
Helen from MadHen….the absolute, undisputed, top notch, first class band EVER! Seriously. However I do have to recommend to all future clients…DO NOT PUT YOUR BAND NEAR THE KITCHEN at TITHE BARN. Why? Because its right under the sound meter. The band were not supposed to be there…they didn’t want to be there but being total class musicians they did what they had to do. B&Gs have the power to change the minds of suppliers (not the band BTW, they fought their corner) who make bad decisions.
You’re only laughing because you know I have the Simon Cowell dance on camera :)
