On the day, despite their apparent calm, I’m sure just a little bit of them was thinking “geez…why has the last few Aprils been so great and this one a bit rubbish?” I imagine that by the end of the second day of married life they probably were thanking their lucky stars for the weather they actually did get. I sit here today (Monday) after what I can only describe as Rainaggeddon. Goodness me.
Claire and Mark took it all in their stride. A little bit of inside, a little bit of outside. We had it all. The one stop shop of Silchester House provided a fantastic location for what I’m sure they will never forget. A day I was proud to be a part of.
There are even more images on my Facebook Business Page. You’ll find a link to that at the end of this post. So enjoy this and look for more at the end.
I knew I left it somewhere!
Make up session or a trip to internal medicine…I’m not entirely sure
Claire would just do this at random interval. Uncontrollable fits of spontaneous giggling with delight. Bless.
Perhaps now she can tell us what the delay was!
Claire’s sister realises late she forgot to see her PVR for ‘The Voice’
Its 3D (apparently)
“It’s got nothing to do with Vorsprung durch technique you know”
Meanwhile they have an enormous sense of well being
Seriously…15 minutes later it was chucking it down!
My Hall monitor!
A few from Mr WonderPants (that’s Darren if you didn’t know)
Sweet stuff Mr DaWg
As promised here is a link to a few more on Facebook. The worlds premier face named website. Like what you see? Tag yourself, it doesn’t hurt. Like the page…it don’t cost nuffin’. To view it go to Claire and Mark’s Silchester Facebook Image Library.
Great day out…although I reckon Evan enjoyed the Lego shop at the end best. Who knows. (all taken with a Panasonic GF1 20mm)
My wacky and uber talented Belgian videographer friends have just posted Maria and Andy’s preview slideshow on their blog. Perhaps it will get you in the mood considering I’m back there again tomorrow.

To remind you…
I love this ‘Just One’ because of a few reasons. First, because Darren (my trusty sidekick, Tonto to my Lone Ranger, Toto to my Dorothy, Louise to my Thelma) almost dared me to try it. We had just lit a ‘in the snow’ portrait and he said “its all ready to go…go for it”. I debated and decided ‘hell yeah…” I love it because it actually came off and I love it because it fuels the debate of whether Michael Jackson really is dead! (see bottom right)
I do hope that everyone who books Lainston House decides to go for the magnificent Larry…toastmaster extraordinarre! I wish he could come to all my weddings (of course apart from those at The Elvetham where of course Eric, the other toastmaster extraordinarre hangs). Toastmasters aside Saturday was a wet affair. From all accounts its true of just about every wedding vaguely in the south. I discovered a hole in the bottom of shoe and spent the entire day with a wet foot. Regardless it was still a laugh getting through it all…the traffic, the weather…no matter because it was all about Catherine and James. Both a little camera shy and opted for perhaps the least amount of B&G shots ever…as in one. So off we go!
Most people write reminder messages on their hands…but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do
These things…they keep happening. Sorta like crop circles.
Hey Mum…isn’t she lovely! (its an in joke between me and her)
XXXXXX (the OOOOO came later)
WB gives its two fingers to me…but I like it
I do love the optimism…sadly the small gap in the forecast on the BBC weather site never materialised

Being a mate, the best man offered to stand in just in case
When reversing be sure to use your choir view mirror
St Peter’s RC in Winchester. Awesome, lovely and parking to boot!
In a church that big you can get around a bit and not disturb anyone
+2 (accidentally) EC can sometimes lead to something more interesting
It really IS all around
This was just the best room ever to work in as a photographer…no, honest!
Make that 2…I forced them to stop for this. Sadly I couldn’t convince the staff to shuffle so I suppose she just needed to be part of the story
Kake (sic) — IOW, it was staged
“Choir view mirror…brilliant!”
It was one of those receiving lines that was great for guests and not so for the family (photographically speaking)
I kept asking myself “yes…but WHEN?”
At least we’ve proved he didn’t wing it
Another visit to Tithe Barn yesterday. Anne and Clyde were keen to let me try new things…so I did. So here I’m trying something a little different in processing and setup. I learned a few things NOT to do on this but in the end I thought it was worth posting…if only to satisfy the curiosity of the subjects!
I’ve got another wedding today so look out for a few blog posts starting tomorrow lunchtime.
