Helen and Johan had another one of those bizarre supersunny April Saturdays for their wedding that took place at my local church St Mary’s in Old Amersham, followed by a reception at the beautifully located Phyllis Court, right on the river in Henley on Thames. It was great fun working for the first time with Rev. Tim Harper, who I know well from my boys’ school. He gave me a backstage pass and said I could shoot from wherever I wanted. Happy days!
Phyllis Court was a welcoming and spacious venue, great for wedding photography, and we tootled around the gardens by the river in the sunshine. There was a small gathering in attendance for a ‘senior’ wedding over in the corner of the garden, and everybody was able to wish everybody else well, which was a refreshing change from being herded away from a second wedding by terrified wedding planners.
The Icelandic volcano travel nightmare was in full swing that day, and the speeches were full of tales of daring and derring-do, relating to the many exciting adventures the guests had encountered on the way to Henley (mainly in Spain, Africa and on the M25).
Here are some pictures – you’ll find the whole story here on my website…..these are just some of my favourite images. I have reduced the size of the pictures this week, to help loading speed.
