Saturday starts off the first of the summer weather weddings of 2010. The sky was crystal clear and the sun was warm — OK, not Dubai warm, but warm all the same. It was a day to make for a new venue with some happy clients. Clare and Nick booked me over a year ago and in that time managed to plan a wedding and much to their surprise, have a baby as well. Another Holly and similar to my Holly, they also refer to her as ‘The Dolly” and “Holly Dolly”. Here I thought we were unique :) The church in Bletchworth was actually the first church in Four Weddings and a Funeral. Don’t believe everything you see in the movies as Charles and Charlotte reversed back down the M40 in the movie but the church is near Reigate. Go figure. Sadly we weren’t allowed to do much in the church…vicars rules. What a waste really. She did mention that you shouldn’t take pictures during a church service to which I had to laugh and think…Diana and Charles. Get a grip! There you go…
Hartsfield Manor hosted the reception and evening party. Luckily we were allowed to shoot there (I would have been very bored otherwise huh). I quite enjoyed it and hope to get back again sometime soon. After all it does have the biggest round table I have ever seen (more later). Enough rambling…you never read it anyway.
Jack and Rose – I know my heart will go on
The devil is in the detail…who wears Prada
Champagne in a wine glass…a woman after my own heart!
What the duck?
I would love to show you photos from inside the church…but I can’t. GRRRRRR!
Prams have come a long way in 2 years
Some might thing that a picture of a dining room table is boring. But when its the biggest round table apart from Arthur’s, I reckon it deserve a look-see
Photographers turns away…walks rather briskly
It seemed the most unlikely of shooting locations…but then unlikely and me get along rather well
Stairway (to heaven)
Yep Nick…she’s certainly yours
I always tell the truth…even when I lie – Tony Montana
Damn…more Wedding Twister
Two rather fetching fellows
Star light…star bright
And a few the (not so) boy Wonder….Darren
As doorstops go…
If you are wondering what he’s looking at….
…there you go!
I don’t know…there are things no right about this…but yet so many things that speak to me. Its an unconventional keeper.
Father Jack arrives in heaven
Sweet Mr D
Shiny happy people
Sunshine didn’t stop yesterday being a great day. Sure everyone was a bit disappointed with the cloudless sky and warm sun but they all put it behind them to make it a great day for Clare and Nick. Such is the British stiff upper lip.
Today’s Just One is a riddle. I knew the second I walked up the path to their house that the porthole window was going to be a feature. I found the flowers and photojournalistically placed them in it :) I took the first shot and realised that the light though the blinds made a strange pattern….nope, don’t like that, close the curtains. Then I get back to Shootinghip HQ (kind of like the Batcave without the steel abs suit) and thought “gee whizz Batman, those line are really interesting”. I then realised that “this town needs an enema” (perhaps one of the best lines ever delivered by Jack…apart from “Here’s Johnny!”) and went with the lines. Oh the irony.
