Michelle & Dan

I haven't blogged for a while... So thought I would get back on the horse and write a piece on Saturday's wedding. As usual the wedding day preparation starts the day before with my favourite job, charging batteries. It always amazes me how many different types of batteries wedding photographers have to use. Once done all my gear is checked and lenses cleaned and the last thing on my checklist is to synchronise the time on my cameras.
It was a fairly early start and a bit of a drive, but I finally turn up at Dans mum's house to photograph the boys getting ready. As usual the lads get ready in about fifteen minutes so you have to work quickly to get your shots. Then off down the pub opposite the church in Whittlesey. After a few pints of Guinness (Dan not me!) it was into the church for the ceremony. The Vicar was quite strict regarding photography, a shame really as the church had been refurbished and was very light and airy inside and would have made for some great photographs.

After the ceremony the new Mr & Mrs (and guests) piled into their cars and it was off to the Great Northern Hotel in Peterborough for the reception. The hotel was right next to the train station so locations to shoot were challenging. While the couple were enjoying their wedding breakfast we were setting up lights in readiness for the 'couple only' photographs. With some great photos in the bag it was off to setup for the cutting of the cake and the first dance. The Brides brother then sang the song for the first dance (a special moment that) which left many members of both families in tears. We left shortly after to let the couple enjoy the evening with our cameras full of photos and great memories.
