Wedding! Nathan and Victoria in Stafford

November 2nd, 2009

I'm at a great moment in my life at the moment where a lot of my close friends are getting married.
Bianca and Jimmy along with Jasmine and Luke to name just two!

Shooting a friends wedding is often very easy, the couple are already comfortable in front of me, and if they're comfortable in front of me, chances are, I've had my camera in their face before!
Sometimes though, I feel like I'd rather just sit back and enjoy the wedding day without having to take pictures professionally.

A few weekends back, my second oldest friend got married. Nathan.
Nathan has an incredible infectious quality. His laugh and smile really light up the room, and I think you'll notice some pretty incredible facial expressions on this post which I'm 100% sure are all down to him! He's also a real hugger. He really gets right in there and almost breaks your bones, its great!!

At first, I went from wanting to be the only person who could take their pictures, to then deciding that actually I just want to enjoy the day, but they twisted my arm and here you are, reading the blog with their wedding pictures in!
(in all fairness, even if I wasn't the photographer, they'd still be pictures from the wedding up on here!)

They had a very relaxed but traditional wedding in Stafford, and then onto the village of Fulford for their reception where there was eating, drinking,  and general getting on down.

As this was yet another friends wedding, you'll probably see some familiar faces in here.
Enjoy, and if you were there, or even if you weren't, then please leave a comment, I get a little thrill when someone leaves one!
