A trip down the river, some beers and a tent

End of May and into June came at a pace and full flow. The wedding of David and Roger was split into two days....a mid week registry office with just a handful of friends and family, no more. Then on the weekend, their "reception" was to be at the local beer festival! Which is a genius idea! As they were both regular volunteers there over the years, they knew the people, pulled a few strings and there you go....full access and a side room set aside for them. It had the potential to be brilliant! And it was! Wednesday was a nice intimate thing, with opportunity to get a few shots of just the two of them. Mid-day sun wasn't helping, but did my best. The weekend was even hotter and sunnier and was hard work, but it made for a great atmosphere and fun was had by all! I thoroughly enjoyed myself, even if I was baked to a crisp by the end of the two days!

Into June and we had the wedding of an old work collegue Laura and her husband Jon. What a coincidence thats mine and my wifes name? Hardly high odds I guess, but always amused me....

Anyway, this was going to be another slightly different wedding in that after the church, the whole thing would be outside in a local park! More good opportunities! The wedding itself was to be in a lovely little village church just outside Saffron Walden but I was restricted in where I could actually move to get shots in there. It was also pretty dark, so a tough task. But....in for a penny and all that! And as I was just starting out at the church after traveling there from the getting ready gathering, one of my cameras decided to give up the ghost! Nice! It actually worked slightly in my favour as my backup camera is a different format and it worked better in that environment than my second camera! Anyway, technicalities aside, I loved this one! Such good fun! Chilled, relaxed, Laura looked amazing and Jon looked like he had walked straight off the pages of a catalogue! I was made to feel welcome, had the run of the shop to get the shots I wanted or needed and two very willing models to get one of the best shots I think I have ever taken at a wedding! You will see....look below.....

Thanks for a great day guys!!!
