I’m so behind with my blogging that since their wedding Michelle and Gary have moved house and are expecting a new addition to their family already which is wonderful news.

I knew I was going to love photographing Michelle and Gary’s wedding for them from the moment we met. Both lawyers Michelle and Gary have been together since they were at school. Michelle is bubbly and engaging while Gary is a bit quieter with a dry sense of humour that endears you to him immediately.

Though based in London they are married at the Swan Hotel in Bibury in the Cotswolds. I think one of the main attractions was that it meant that they could have an outdoor ceremony so when the heavens opened on the morning of the wedding there were one or two frayed nerves in the bridal suite. Miraculously the sun broke through 2 minutes before the ceremony was supposed to begin and the staff rushed all the chairs onto the lawn. Michelle still managed to keep Gary waiting for several tense minutes before she walked up the aisle in blazing summer sunshine. The ceremony was beautiful and then like clockwork the rain came at the end of the drinks reception and the guests sprinted to the wedding breakfast in the hotel.

Another break in the weather later in the day allowed us to sneak off for a few sunset portraits by the river before, after a quick outfit change for Michelle, everyone reconvened in the hotel for some rather impressive dancing! Michelle’s parents were particularly impressive!

Thanks so much to Michelle and Gary for choosing me to be your photographer and I look forward to sorting your album out with you when Michelle is on maternity leave!
