One of the great things about weddings is that you get to spend lots of quality time with family and friends.
In fact, some of them you may not have seen for a long time, possibly years, which makes your wedding day extra special.
At Louise and Graeme’s wedding at the Stoke By Nayland Hotel, Essex, that was especially true for me, because Graeme’s my cousin!
I’m not going to embarrass him by telling tales of how we used to watch Raiders of the Lost Ark as kids, and then attempt to reenact some of the scenes from the film by lashing ourselves to my Auntie’s stair banister with a piece of cord (it’s Indiana Jones’ whip, you see).
Erm, I think I might have said a bit too much there…:)
Anyway, I have loads of other brilliant memories of growing up with Graeme. For example, watching Blazing Saddles and laughing far too hard at the campfire scene. Cheering on Jimmy White while he lost yet another Snooker World Championship to Stephen Hendry. Oh Jimmy, how you broke our hearts. Playing cricket on Frinton Beach. The list literally goes on and on.
So to photograph his wedding to the lovely Louise was indeed a pleasure, an honour and a privilege.
Also, it gave my parents who were also guests lots of opportunity to embarrass me while I was working (I’m joking folks, love you really! ♥️)
So huge congrats to both Louise and Graeme, and here’s to a lifetime of married bliss!
