The wonderful glow of summer filtering in through the windows on a Sunday morning....... What better time to sneak a look at a wonderful wedding?

Theo + Lucy got married at the splendid Farbridge Wedding Venue near Chichester in West Sussex. The weather was kind enough to stay warm and dry, if a little overcast and occasionally a bit gusty, and a great day was had by all. Their love of Mexico spilled over into the dining, with a Mexican inspired menu and table settings. The wedding ceremony was held in one of the magnificently converted barns on site, before we went for a stroll around the local area, managing to avoid all the cows in their fields. Then back to the barns for some outstanding food, followed by singing and dancing the night away with a brilliant band - Alive - who were outstanding!

Enjoy having a look through a taste of their wonderful wedding day below,

Matt.

Elly + Ben: Engagement Shoot http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/12/elly-ben-engagement-shoot Elly and Ben are getting married in Summer 2017 (call back again then to see a taste of their wedding pictures), and as part of the build-up to that, we had a wonderful engagement shoot a few weeks ago in Shoreditch, London. Slightly different to the usual locations for engagement photography, they are both big fans of the street art in the area, so we arrived on a freezing and damp November Sunday morning to have walk around and take in the sights. An engagement shoot is a brilliant way to get to know me as your photographer before the big day arrives, so that when it does, we're already like old friends and you feel much more relaxed in front of the camera. It's also an opportunity to get some early photographs that you may want to use as part of your invitation, or for something else to display at your wedding. In fact, it's really just a great excuse to get some photographs of yourselves together!

We had a great time - even though I did get a lot of condensation on my beard - and found some wonderful art. Despite the damp chill, we had tea/coffee and lots of laughs, which warmed us up properly and made the day really good fun. Elly and Ben, roll on the Summer 'cos I can't wait!!

Below is a taster of their engagement photography for you to enjoy:

Rob + Tracie http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/10/rob-tracie One of my recent wonderful weddings has taken me to the beautiful Buxted Park Hotel to tell the wedding day story of Rob and Tracie. A beautiful location for a wedding; sumptuous rooms and glorious grounds - plenty of space and magnificent food. Tracie prepared in the glorious 'Blue and Gold' Room which is set upstairs overlooking the long avenue of parkland leading away from the hotel. I found Tracie and her bridal party preparing there, by sound before I could see them....

I arrived early as usual and was scouting the grounds preparing for the day, my walk taking me along the lower pathway by the lake and bringing me up through the trees at the far end of the grassed avenue. I looked down the park towards the hotel and started walking down towards it. There was a bit of dew in the grass and a bit of a gentle mist still lingering near the trees. As I got closer I could see that the upper windows were open and then I could hear them. Laughing. Loudly. Up until this point, I fancied that I may look a little like Mr Darcy, appearing from the distance, striding purposefully towards the manor house. But no, this laughter killed all that. I felt a bit daft and made my way upstairs, introducing myself to those in the party that I hadn't met before. It appears that despite my personal thoughts on how I looked, the bridesmaids thought that I was a drunken guest from the wedding the previous day, that had awoken under the trees and was making my way back to the hotel..... Oh well.

Still - this set the tone for the day. It was a lovely, romantic, laughter and fun filled occasion - with music, eating, drinking and dancing all day long. The sun shone brightly despite some threatening looking clouds rolling in - and they even found time to go dinosaur hunting.....

Makeup by the wonderfully talented Penny at Blush Bridal Beauty who I heartily recommend.

Here are some pictures to give you a taster of Rob + Tracie's day, I hope you enjoy them,

Jess + Pook, A wonderful summer wedding in Berkshire http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/9/jess-pook-a-wonderful-summer-wedding Well, Hello!!! :)

This summer has been a wonderful season; filled with new found marital bliss, drinking, laughing, eating and dancing the night away. So much so that I'm behind a bit with some pictographic insights into some of these wonderful occasions.

The first one I am going to share with you is Jess + Pook's laughter filled day. It was a lovely and sunny day in Berkshire, and the day's festivities took place at a fantastic venue - Sanctum on The GreenThey are both lifelong music fans - as were a lot of their guests - and this was reflected in the choice of venue (owned by the Manager of Iron Maiden and there's Gold Discs everywhere to prove it) and the surprise music guest at the end of the speeches.

Bridal transport was laid on by a family friend in a beautiful VW Camper Van, you know - one of those old lovely, shiny ones. The bridal party all wore beautiful different colour but matching dresses, whilst the Groom's party (the Groom plus 3 best men) had a more eclectic mixture of dapper wear.

The ceremony was wonderful with readings and more laughter than I've ever seen during vows and ring exchanges, and the surrounding countryside was verdant and welcoming to us for our little stroll around. Jess even had a very little go on a swing on the old green, but I think Pook wanted to go on it more than her - I know I fancied a go :)

Anyway, please have a look at the taste of their wedding day story below - I hope you enjoy it and there's more to come from more wonderful summer weddings very soon,

Matt

Sneaky Little Taste of Danielle & Joe's Wedding http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/7/sneaky-little-taste-of-danielle-joes-wedding As it's this time of year, blog entries are few and far between as us wedding photographers try to keep up with the wonderful weddings we're involved with, along with all the editing that goes with it.... but I sense the next one to hit the blog will be this beautiful wedding from a couple of weeks ago with Danielle and Joe. A great day - so watch this space for a blog on it soon....

Rachel & Dom's wonderful Rye wedding... http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/4/rachel-doms-wonderful-rye-wedding I recently spent an outstanding wedding day with Rachel and Dom when they got married on a blustery and damp late winter's day in Rye. The weather forecast for the day wasn't ideal - but when the day came we were smiled upon. Although it was grey and windy, the rain held off and none of it dampened the amazing day :) Rachel looked absolutely stunning in her strapless gown, and was well complimented by Dom - who, along with his groomsmen -  looked dashing in his blue suit. We started the day's preparations in The George in Rye, before walking up the cobbled streets to the Town Hall for the ceremony. After the ceremony, the couple were announced to the public by the Rye Town Crier, who then led the couple - followed by everyone else - back down the hill to The George where a few quick drinks were had. We followed this by sneaking away for 25 minutes to get some pictures of them both during a walk around the old parts of the town at the top of the hill, then back to The George for the evening's entertainment.

Once back at The George, we were treated to some cake, some wonderful heartfelt speeches, some delicious food followed by lots of enthusiastic and energetic dancing on into the night :)

Thanks to Rachel and Dom - it was great to be able to tell their wedding day story and be with them throughout the day, I've included a few pictures below to give you a taste of their day,

Matt.

2015 and more... Part One - from preparation to the magic moment http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/3/2015-and-more Today I thought I'd take you on a journey.

Not just any old journey, no. Using the power of magic, (Well, displaying some of my favourite moments from weddings across the last year or so) I'm going to take you all along on a journey with me through some wonderful wedding day stories.

I was almost going to call this blog entry, '2015: a Year in Review' but I realised that this didn't quite encompass what I wanted to get across. I wanted to show you all some of my favourite wedding pictures since my last review; to give all you wonderful couples and people planning weddings for 2016 and 2017, an updated view of my more recent weddings, and that title wasn't quite right. I've been very busy this year and an annual review would have missed a wedding that sneaked in at the end of 2014 as well a beautiful wedding from a grey, wet and windswept Valentines Day just past. 

So I'm not going to call it that.

That title would also have required the inclusion of various other projects and events I've been fortunate enough to be involved in this year - but this blog is about weddings. Wonderful, joyous, emotional, happy, eventful, sunny (sometimes rainy) and uplifting weddings.

Well. Here we are. Struggle as I might, I have managed to reduce the pictures down to less than a thousand :) It was very difficult as I've been fortunate to have so many wonderful pictures, of many many amazing people that I could have shared with you. So to the subjects of the pictures that made it to this blog entry, I thank you. 

I need to let you know that I am now pretty much fully booked up for weddings across 2016 - but I do have a couple of dates free towards the end of the year so please get in contact if you'd like to see if I'm available for your date. I'm now taking bookings for 2017 (and even for those organised couples I have already spoken to, for 2018 too!), although popular dates are starting to get booked up - so please drop me a line if you would like to talk more.

So here we go. Hold on tight, sit back and relax - set your mouth to 'wide grin' and your eyes to 'Wow!'

Enjoy scrolling through - Part One below takes you from the start of the day, through some preparations and whatnot, and on to the ceremony itself (and yes, you are allowed to kiss when you get to this part). Be sure to look out for Part Two and Part Three where we move from the ceremony to the reception and then on into the night - both coming to the blog very soon!!

I hope you enjoy looking at these pictures as much as I loved making them.

Charity Calendar - Naked Rugby Players.... An update http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/2/charity-calendar---naked-rugby-players-an-update As you will have remembered from just over a year ago, I had the honour of spending a couple of hours with some brave, brave rugby players who were doing a very noble thing for charity. They had agreed to pose for a charity calendar. Oh yes, did I mention? They were naked.

Yes. Naked.

(Apart from boots and socks, obviously...)

A few of the guys were all a little sheepish at first (as can be expected) but after I'd gone through the plan for each shot, we started with the first photograph. I took it easy on them to start with - it was an indoor shot at the bar. A little light ale later and we moved outside, a little more relaxed about the whole affair. Once we'd completed the next shot and they'd had a bit of a run around, I think they felt a lot more free and easy and they soon relaxed into it. I have to say, they were really good sports about the whole thing. As you can imagine, some of the rugby setups involved a lot of them getting a lot closer to naked parts of each other than they were used to!!!

But what's it all about? I hear you ask. Well, in Hastings & St Leonards we have an amazing place, St Michael's Hospice that does a fantastic job in caring for people and their families at a very difficult time in their or their loved one's lives. You can find out more about them or get involved here: St Michael's Hospice.The Hastings & Bexhill Rugby Football Club decided they'd like to get involved in the fundraising and so they have come together with St Michael's Hospice and posed for what was a magnificently high selling calendar for 2015. You can find out more about them, or maybe even come along and get involved here: Hastings & Bexhill Rugby.

The editing process was interesting. I had to be very careful as to the details that may have strayed into view - it is a family friendly calendar after all! We were very careful when shooting, so most of the problem was resolved at the time, but my wife took great delight in helping me proof the second cut of pictures, pointing out a visible appendage here and there...

Well, now that the calendar year has passed, I can share with all you people that were unlucky enough not to get your hands on a copy, what the guys put themselves through in the name of charity. The first picture was used as the Front Cover, the last picture as the Rear Cover. All the rest were used, 1 per month.

So it's worth saying again, well done guys, really really well done and thank-you.

Matt

Abi & Adam got married in the woods... http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/10/abi-adam-got-married-in-the-woods Well, almost.

A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of photographing Adam and Abi's delightful summer wedding in Kent. Abi and her beautiful bridesmaids prepared at her parents address before heading off to the lovely St Peter's church near Pembury. It's a wonderful place, it sits atop a hill that rises from the surrounding countryside like an island. After the service, they jumped into a classic Jaguar to head off to the reception, whilst the bridesmaids headed off in a white Hackney Cab.

The reception and location for the afternoon and evenings entertainment was at an outstanding venue - Wise Wedding near Five Oak Green. This is a private rural woodland, scattered with clearings large and small. The largest is big enough to host a splendid marquee for eating and dancing in, whilst outside is big enough for general partying and games such as croquet. The woods themselves contain a myriad of delights - not least of which are treehouses, and sofas and armchairs hanging from ropes in the trees like giant swings. But when the sun goes down, the woods take on an entirely different persona: There are lights and candles all over the place, marking out pathways, highlighting seating or just for general artistic delight.

The sun was out, the day was hot and the wedding went spectacularly well, we even got a chance to pay a visit to the horses and donkeys in one of the fields! What a lovely day.

Many thanks to Abi and Adam for having me as a part of their wonderful wedding - I've included some pictures below to give you a taste of their wedding day story,

Paul & Felicity got married... http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/9/paul-felicity-got-married ...and it was a beautiful, hot, sunny, magnificently rain cloudy day, filled with love, hilarity and lots of energetic barn dancing!

Earlier this summer I had the great pleasure in photographing Paul and Felicity's wedding, split between a beautiful village church in The Dicker, East Sussex and a reception in the hall and grounds of the lovely venue, Northease Manor

The day was forecast lots of rain, but cleared whilst hair and makeup preparation was underway - when the sun shone brightly. The wind stayed with us for a lot of the day, but the rain held off.... just about. After the wonderful service, Paul & Felicity jumped into Gecko, opened the champagne, and we escaped to the magnificent coastline of the Sussex Heritage Coast with an unrivalled spectacular view across to the Seven Sisters Country Park and the Cuckmere Haven. Many thanks to Caroline who on behalf of the Seaford Head Preservation Trust made it possible for us to photograph with Gecko on the beach and around the Coastguard Cottages.

We had fun on the beach and even more fun dodging walkers, ramblers and country park visitors whilst walking back up the hill - so thanks to them all for pausing to let us shoot :) Near the end of our time at the coast, the largest, darkest rain clouds I've seen in a very long time headed towards us.... we finished what we were doing, considered breaking out the wellington boots, but made it before the rain came down - which thankfully was only very light when it arrived and passed over away from us.

From there, we made our way through Newhaven to Northease Manor: which was an amazing venue with plenty of beautiful grounds for a stroll, a relax or to put up a drinks tent; a picture booth and lots of outdoor things to do. There was lots of dancing, and eating, some strolling in the orchard followed by some seriously energetic barn dancing and drinking, and a good time was had by all.

So thanks Paul & Felicity, good luck for the future and thank-you for involving me in your big day, it was wonderful!

To give you an idea of the story of the day, I've shared some of their pictures below :)

Jon & Kate got married... http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/9/jon-kate-got-married A few weeks ago, I had the honour of the company of two wonderful people and their families. Kate and Jon got married at a beautiful venue, High Rocks near Tunbridge Wells in Kent. This venue - as well as catering for weddings large and small - has restaurants, bars and a lovely garden. What makes it even more unusual is that in its grounds it has its' own station on the Spa Valley Railway line - a steam train - as well as acres of breathtaking sandstone rocks interlinked with eleven bridges. This provides a beautiful scenic walk up in the trees where it's tranquil and away from the people below. These rocks were once a stone age camp and are now a national monument.

The day promised rain early on, but our luck held as the clouds cleared, making way for a beautiful hot sunny day. Kate & Jon's children looked very handsome in their matching shirts, shorts and converse shoes, and Kate's dress sparkled like a really sparkly thing!

There was lots of dancing, drinking and wandering in the woods - a great day and thank you so much for letting me be a part of it.

I've put a few pictures below to give you a taste of their day,

Victoria Kay & The Bridal Factory http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/8/victoria-kay-the-bridal-factory Hi,

A few weeks ago, I got to team up with the wonderful people from Victoria Kay Gowns again, but this time to photograph their 2016 collections for their brochures and for their advertising. As you'll see, the pictures are all different for different uses: some are for brochures; some for magazine advertising; and some for blowing up into massive billboards for bridal shows. We had a jam packed couple of days and between the two models - Faye and Lara - they got through well over 100 gowns!

Well this is only a short blog post this time, (the time of year you'll understand) but I just wanted to share with you some of the pictures that will soon be used to promote the wonderful ranges of gowns that Victoria Kay produce.

The style of photography is clearly very different - and using greatly different techniques - to my wedding photography, but it all helps expand my technical capabilities and is great fun. (I even persuaded Khalid and Lisa to build a swing!!) If you are in need of a wedding or bridesmaid dress, why not have a proper look at their website for further information, or pop into The Bridal Factory in St Leonards to try some on :)

Colour the Coast 2015 http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/8/colour-the-coast-2015 Hi,

Summer is here and as you can imagine, it's a really really busy time for me. I have 3 weddings waiting in the wings to make it on here, but I haven't quite got the time to add them yet.....

However, just to let you know what else I've been up to this weekend, I've been photographing the wonderful 'Colour the Coast' by St Michael's Hospice. This is a 4k Charity Fun-Run along Hastings Seafront. There's a big zumba dance party with powder paint thrown around before the off; then along the route there are 4 further checkpoints where the runners have different powder paint chucked at them; then back to the finish line for a disco dancing, paint throwing, slightly bonkers mess about. 

Today's role required me to get in close, possibly too close as I think it will take a couple of months to get myself and my camera kit truly clean.....

Please have a look at some taster pictures below from today, and if you can support St Michael's Hospice in any way, why not have a look HERE and see how you can help,

Thanks

Matt

Charlotte & Stephen got married.... http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/6/charlotte-stephen-got-married ....and the animals came too!!!

Last week I travelled to Port Lympne animal reserve in Kent for the gloriously sunny wedding of Charlotte to Stephen.

It was a beautiful hot day, and the bridal party had the entire mansion house for their preparation, ceremony and later celebrations. Port Lympne is a stunning and huge animal reserve set in the Kent countryside, with all sorts of creatures large and small from all around the world. It's the first time I've ever photographed a brides preparation to the sound of Tigers roaring and Monkeys screeching! The mansion house is set near the centre of the park and has beautiful grounds that are closed off to the public on wedding days.

The rooms are large and airy, with animal paintings and statues everywhere. The ceremony itself took place outside in a large courtyard, backing on to a fountain, and accompanied by vocals from Adam Chandler and a guitarist from his swing band - Rhythm in Blues - who performed in their entirety at the evening reception.

There were lots of sunny smiles and continued mischief from their young son who kept everyone busy throughout the day. Once the ceremony was over and we'd had a stroll around the grounds, we had an African Safari adventure!! Yep. We loaded up onto two large trucks and trailers and were driven around the reserve for an hour so, in amongst lots of large African and occasional Indian creatures. The park has animals including: gorillas, rhino, elephant, big cats of various varieties too - but my personal favourites were the giraffes who came up to us to say hello!!

Once back at the mansion, one of the finest barbecues you'll find was dished up to the hungry group, before the evenings dancing, drinking and good times rolled on. Oh yeah, and did I forget to mention the bouncy castle in the animal room? :)

This was definitely a wedding with a difference and not one I'll forget too soon!

Thanks to the staff at Port Lympne and a huge thanks to Charlotte and Stephen for involving me in their big day :)

I've added some pictures below to give you a taster of their story...

Mark & Lucy got married... http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/6/mark-lucy-got-married ...and it was a lovely, lively, family and friends fun-filled beautiful day - ending in an evening full of dancing and a newlywed couple :)  

Last week I had the honour of spending the day taking pictures for the story of Mark & Lucy's wedding day in Hampshire. The forecast was a bit worrisome - lots of intermittent greyness and wetness interspersed with some spells of bright sunshine - but thanks to some fortunate timing and some dynamic alterations to our photography plans, we managed to stay mostly dry. The day started with both bride and groom preparing at a Hotel on the outskirts of Winchester, before moving into the city centre - to St Peter's Church - for the ceremony, given by a very cheery priest. The heavens opened soon after the service finished and so we hot-footed it north to a stunning wedding venue - The Clock Barn -  for the afternoon and evening receptions. On arrival we were greeted by some lovely gaelic music by Boondock with further music in the evening by an outstanding covers band, Anthem. We managed to nip outside once or twice between rain showers for a stroll around the grounds, before getting back inside for food and drink and finishing off after the meal with dancing. Lots and lots of dancing :) (And a little bit of drinking too...)  Thanks to the staff at the Clock Barn for helping make my job easier, and to Daniel from Bainis Films who was videographer, but most of all, thanks to Mark & Lucy for involving me in their big day - it was an honour, thank-you :)  Below is a taster of their wonderful day.

Kessia & Matt got married..... http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/5/kessia-matt-got-married ....and crikey, it was a wonderful, intimate and very windy day!!

Last week I was honoured to join Kessia and Matt for their wedding celebrations, starting the day in a very blustery and a little chilly (but dry!) Eastbourne in East Sussex and then on to Tunbridge Wells in Kent.

As well as extended family and friends, they were joined by their young family who as you can see from the pictures - were very keen to be involved in all that was going on. Their eldest son was the ring bearer and their youngest decided to join them for the ceremony :)

We started off the day at the 130 year old Eastbourne Town Hall for an intimate service in the Mayor's Parlour, where as well as their vows they exchanged the rings that they helped make themselves a few weeks ago, each finishing each others off - what a wonderful, lovely and personal touch. We then left - passing through an honour guard of bubbles (a good choice I think, as confetti would have blown around all over the place) and headed south to the seafront. We were hoping for the rain to hold off - which it did but it did remain a bit windy for us all to contend with. A couple of dogs also made cameo appearances - a little Jack Russell scampered out onto a window sill to see what all the noise was about as we walked from the Town Hall, and a family friend - a large Labradoodle (whose name I have unfortunately forgotten...) - joined us on the bandstand for champagne and nibbles.

After they'd all had some nibbles and champagne, and the kids had danced around a bit in the bandstand - many thanks to Eastbourne Bandstand for opening up and allowing us to photograph in there - we moved on to Tunbridge Wells for an afternoon wedding breakfast at a lovely place to eat and spend some time, Juliets. After some great food and a couple of speeches, we popped outside and revisited some of Kessia and Matt's old haunts around town for some more pictures.

Luckily, the rain held off all day and a good time was had by all.

So thanks Kessia and Matt, it was a lovely day and a great celebratory start to your married life :)

Robin Hood Bonfire Society - Easter Extravaganza http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/4/robin-hood-bonfire-society---easter-extravaganza Hi,

As regular followers will know, I am involved with St Michael's Hospice as one of their event photographers. You'll probably remember last year's Rugby Club calendar and the Colour the Coast - I'm also photographing this year's Colour the Coast in August for them see here for details of the event or here for some pictures from last year. Please come along and support if you can :)

Well, this year I have also been asked to join and photograph events on behalf of the Robin Hood Bonfire Society, based in Icklesham, East Sussex. They are a community group that get together throughout the year to raise funds for local charities and take part in the long-held Sussex Bonfire society traditions. You will have seen them taking part in many of the processions and bonfire nights throughout the winter months in various towns and villages across East Sussex, making lots of noise and scaring people with their painted faces and flaming torches. In order to raise funds they have lots of fundraising events and activities throughout the year, culminating in an annual hosting of their own procession, bonfire and fireworks spectacular as well as financially supporting local charities. One such fundraising event was their recent Easter Extravaganza which I attended as my first official event - where l got the opportunity to photograph all and sundry that were brave enough in the drizzle to have their faces painted in the Society colours. It was a good, fun event that raised £460.00 through a mixture of fun things to do including; Easter Egg hunting, face painting, Tombola, and other competitions and games. Of course, the fact that it's based at the local village pub doesn't hurt either :)

Have a look at their Facebook page here as they are often holding events and are always looking for new members to join in the fun and support their good causes.

Anyway. I've added a few pictures below of the face painting that we got up to - to give you a little taster.

Enjoy :)

Matt

Karim & Alice got married!!! http://www.rathergoodphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/11/karim-alice-got-married .....and it was a wonderful day!!!

As you may recall, I gave you a brief teaser picture from Karim & Alice's wedding, over on my Facebook page a couple of weeks ago. Well, the pictures are now ready to show off and I'm very happy to show you some more of the main event, selecting some of their photographs to give you an idea of the story of their day. 

The location for this happy event was South Farm, Royston near Cambridge - with the preparation, ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception all held on the one site. If you haven't heard of the place before, it is a beautiful farm setting, making use of the Farmhouse, the grounds and the converted barns to host fantastic events such as this. As well as the caravans in which guests can stay (a couple of which make an entrance below) guests can also stay in some of the rooms in the house, in the bridal suite or can even camp onsite. The farm has pigs, chickens and other small farm animals roving around - in areas accessible and visible to all the days proceedings - as well as extensive kitchen garden vegetable plots.

Although the day was a little grey and chilly, the worst of the wind and all of the rain held off, and lots of outdoor fun was had. As you can see from the photographs, it's set in a beautiful and peaceful rural location and with the exclusive use of the site, it felt as if we were the only people for miles around. And so on we went. The wedding ceremony was held in The Old Dairy before moving across the courtyard to the Tudor Barn for the afternoon and evening events. There was laughing (a lot), drinking, dancing, eating, drinking, a bit more dancing, a photo-booth and even a night-time ride in a Tuk-Tuk for those who felt brave enough. A really great day :)

I also need to mention the events team at South Farm - managed by the ever-present and effervescent Alli - who were really at the top of their game on the day. It makes a huge difference to the day's atmosphere (and therefore photography) when the team behind the scenes are as professional as this - it certainly made my life as a busy photographer a lot easier.

Thank-you Karim and Alice for letting me be a part of your big day, as always it was a great honour.
