During Leanne and Sam's wedding day Alan Partridge was mentioned in one of the best men's speeches, an Einstein quote was featured in the ceremony along with a Tolkien reading, and the ceremony was kicked off with a beautiful cover of the Queen song You're My Best Friend, all things that made me so happy to hear!
I think it is the windiest wedding I have ever shot at and the ceremony had to stop a couple of times because the wind was so strong, but it all went very well, and it was a little bonus for me that a couple of times Leanne's very long veil got caught up in it which was great to photograph, there was even a little confetti tornado at reception!

Thank you both so much, you were a dream to work with, and thank you for the lovely review you wrote for me.
So two Hollys, two Bens, an Ed and a Dan went to Ryde one evening in a taxi and a van, with a load of instruments, a floor lamp, a sofa and a few cans of beer. The result, was this shoot.
I can’t remember the last time I did a shoot for a band, I think it might have been back when I was still in college, and it was so great to shoot something a bit different, although I do absolutely love shooting weddings it did break up the season a bit, and it allowed me to try different things because it wasn't the normal kind of thing I'm used to shooting.
The guys even played my request of Three Lions (back when there was still a crazy chance that England were going to win the world cup!) and other songs that they play as a live band, which was really lovely actually, apart from the odd dog walker or two I felt like I was watching a live show alone on a summers evening in what felt like the middle of nowhere.
Thank you to all five of you for being so great and asking me to shoot with you in the first place, it really was a great evening.
