I fully expected to be employing the use of an Ark on Saturday. The forecast was not looking good. I was desperately disappointed for Saara and Rob because the weather has been exceptional (for Britain) over the last few weeks. Despite the heavy overnight rain the sky cleared and the ground was still hard as a rock. Not a bad thing when you have a marquee in the Hertfordshire country side.
Saara and Rob came as a recommendation from some of my favourite folks, Helen and Ben. Being neighbours it took Helen no time to recommend me and for that I am very grateful. The only bummer came in the fact that they weren’t able to attend due to new arrival of Ted. But then, that’s not a bad excuse is it? What’s more intriguing is that Saara’s Bridesmaid, Katie, has also booked me for December independent of knowing they were both hiring the same photographer. Small world and all that.
Saturday was an exceptional day. Lovely weather, lovely friends and family and a stunning location. The church was in a most idyllic village of Drayton Beauchamp and a wonderful location for a church wedding. Travel back to Tring and through the fields to find the marquee set up on the hill overlooking some amazing countryside.
Some business now. First, I did a more robust post production for today’s blog and Facebook post. Rob and Saara and not only exceptional people but also taking a rather unique honeymoon. 7 weeks away in South America. So in light of this I wanted to give them a little extra. Something more to chew on for the next 50 days.

When I wake up (oh I know I’m gonna be) each wedding morning I never know what I’m going to get. Forrest Gump was right…weddings are like a box of chocolates. Fortunately for me all of mine are dark chocolate based with a gooey inside with at least one big nut. No, that wasn’t a veiled reference to Rob but if you had seen him dancing wearing his sisters fascinator you could be forgiven for believing so. I can’t stop thinking about chocolate now.
Just One’s are meant to be short so in that spirit let’s just get to picture. Each week I’m always faced with some dilemma. Do I take the easy route and show something that Mum would like? Do I find a perfectly composed, well thought out couple shot? Do I show something a bit more thought provoking…something with a bit of emotion to tug the heart strings? Or do I just go for a Bride with a seriously rumbly tummy gobbing whole wheat bread down only minutes before stepping into the Rolls for her most wonderful wedding day. Oh baby…you guessed it!
Buy why? (cries the mothers of Brides the UK over) Because it was a wonderful moment, a magical tension release, a collective uplifting of all of us in the room. A moment you could never rehearse, coordinate or even plan for. That is, at least in part, some of the idea behind Just One.

More photos on the blog tomorrow (I can’t wait).
Even more interesting is the laughing Bridemaid…completely independently they both booked me…we’ll see her in December at Bury Court
