Sarah and Wayne. My goodness me. What a laugh. From the madness of Wayne and his mates, to the boob touching of the Bridemaids, to the sour faced Sambuca shots. This day was a real gem. In some ways blogging months after the fact gives you a chance to reflect on the day and remember what it was so special. Not only for them but also for me. I do take each day personally. I want it all to be perfect for the couple. A partly selfish position as if its perfect for them, its perfect for me too. Calm heads makes for calm faces. To be honest it was never really going to be a problem with these guys. Their familes and friends are just like them. Serious when it matters and keen to let their hair down when it doesn’t.
The first great decision was the ceremony at St Peter and St Paul in Godalming. Its simply one of the best churches in Surrey. Great light, great space, room for me to move just a little bit and never been noticed. Of course you need to ensure that you carry that wisdom through and they certainly did. Gate Street Barn is just the most fantastic venue around. It all starts with the top and the staff. Just excellent. It was a great day I won’t forget. Thank you both for making me feel so welcome and part of the family.
Have a gander at these images and at the end there will be a link to loads more on Facebook.
