Katy and Gareth first came to see me over a year ago. I baked a cake for the occasion, they brought their incredibly sweet (and well behaved!) daughters Nancy and Florence with them and thus we bonded immediately. When we met again half a year later to take these photos it already felt like visiting friends so waiting another half year for their wedding seemed a really long time. But then there it was and against all fearful predictions it was a beautiful sunny day, the crisp winter air full of excitement.
From the cutest village church where Katy and Gareth live we went on to the amazing William Cecil in Stamford. Their black tie glamour theme made everyone look like James Bond, their daughters Nancy and Florence looked like snow princesses (for a few hours at least), tears of joy and happiness mixed with laughter and after the longest speeches I have ever been able to witness (hopefully also the longest I ever will witness!) some amazing dancing happened. In other words this little family put on a proper party for their friends and families and I am very grateful to have been there.
I wish you two a lifetime of happiness, many Northern Soul tunes to dance to and always a piece of cake to relax with. Thank you for what was an incredible day.
Katy and Gareth fell in love with the big medium format film portraits and with their wedding being in the midst of winter we wanted to ensure that we didn’t have to depend on the weather so we split them between their portrait shoot in the summer and the actual wedding day itself. I am very happy that we got so lucky on their wedding day what with the sun streaming through trees at the church. All film photos are taken on Kodak Portra 400 and a Hasselblad 500C/M.
