Sarah and Justin got married

On Friday, Sarah and Justin got married. They asked me to take the pictures. Sarah and I have known each other for well over 20 years (our families knew each other from St Thomas’)and her reasoning was that I know her and Justin well enough to know what they will tolerate (neither of them are very keen on having their photos taken) and they would listen to me when I asked them to something to get a good photo. I have a policy of always saying yes when people I love ask me to do something that matters, even when it makes me very nervous. So, I turned up with a camera and did my best.

    This I think is my favourite photo. Mother and Son. Ryan and Sarah got very lucky when God chose them for each other.

  Sarah, Tom and Elayne.  Tom and Elayne are Sarah’s people…


  Sarah has spent a lot of time in India and the Ambassador cabs were very her…


Justin and his ‘best person’ Joy…

I do just need to spend some time talking about this young man. Ryan was amazing. He gave his mother away, signed the register, made a brilliant speech, kept his brothers under control. My mother says that he’s a ‘nice boy’ and that’s so true. His parents, step-parents and godparents are slightly gobsmacked that he turned out to be such an amazing person and I know that we’re all very proud…

I hadn’t realised how difficult it is to get a good photo of cake. Justin’s sister made these and his parents had a very anxious journey from Wales with them in the back of the car!

It was a brilliant day and suited Sarah and Justin perfectly.

Sarah and Ryan (and now Justin) are part of my family and I was so happy to be there and to know that everyone in the room were there to see and take part in a day that made a new family.

    These photos are stunning! they must have been thrilled with them! I shot a wedding last year and then promptly lost the memory card!

      Thank you. It’s quite nerve racking and I was so nervous about losing them! I don’t have any photos of my brother’s wedding due to the collision of my computer with a glass of red wine, so I feel your pain!
