Ali & Stuart

What a fantastic day everyone had for Ali and Stuart's wedding. Lots of preparation went into the day and it was a pleasure to photograph the day's action. The bride is always at the centre of attention on her special day, here the bridesmaids are busy while the make-up receives the finishing touches.

Meanwhile the guys manage to fit in a quick round of golf, watch a bit of the Test match, grab a bacon roll and off for a drink. Now note those shoes that the best men are sporting! I have to credit this image to my assistant (and wife), I have recently had some people compliment me on some blog pictures and I had to own up that their favourite was actually my wife's work!

A brief glimpse of the bride and her father as they enter the church. The inside was packed with a large number of guests.

It was nice to have a walk to the marquee from the church, with a few pictures taken on the way.

The garden and marquee gave a very summer garden party feeling, with perfect weather. The speeches were great fun, the two best men gave a great double act, even if some of what they said was a little embarrassing for the groom.

As night fell the action continued.

The first dance gave the couple the chance to show their athleticism. The dance floor was absolutely heaving, making it actually difficult to find room to take pictures.

One of my jobs is to record memories and it was lovely to photograph such a precious moment as the bride and her mother danced together.

The marquee certainly made a beautiful sight as the day drew to a close.

Finally the party ended, except for a few die hard party goers at one end of the otherwise empty marquee.
What an amazing day.
