Wedding! Pete and Linzi in Berkshire

October 1st, 2010

I think you’ll enjoy this wed­ding here…
Pete and Linzi con­tact­ed me a lit­tle while back­ing ask­ing if I’d like to cov­er their wedding.
By the way it was described, it sound­ed just my cup of tea.
It turned out to be one of the most infor­mal, inti­mate and relaxed wed­dings I’ve covered.
They had put so much effort into every lit­tle detail, it was incred­i­ble. Maybe it was Linz­i’s degree in Fine Art that helped?
Real­ly, it was the friends and fam­i­ly that made their day so spe­cial and result­ed in me cap­tur­ing some of my favorite images of the year.
As Pete is a police offi­cer, the recep­tion was held at the police train­ing grounds in Berk­shire, it also acts as a muse­um and a great wed­ding venue for offi­cers, I was giv­en pret­ty strict instruc­tions as to what I was and was­n’t allowed to do.
Fir­ing my Glock in the air to help me round up guests for the for­mals was­n’t real­ly an option today.
You may call me crazy, but one of the things that made the day spe­cial for me was the weather.
It was…English, on a grand scale. We had beau­ti­ful sun­shine, tor­ren­tial rain, thun­der and lightening.
When your recep­tion is held in a lit­tle mar­quee, the Eng­lish weath­er makes things inter­est­ing and when the beer tent is in a total­ly dif­fer­ent mar­quee that also makes things fun!

Any­way, enjoy the pic­tures and as always, leave a comment.
They make me feel all happy!

    A beau­ti­ful col­lec­tion as always, Joseph. You man­age to cap­ture detail ele­gant­ly with­out for­get­ting what’s real­ly impor­tant on the day; the emo­tions of the peo­ple attend­ing. I look for­ward to see­ing what you cap­ture for us.
