and the moment I drove up to I could see how beautiful it was and why the couple had chosen it for
their wedding ceremony. it has very special feel about it. The owners believe in giving everything a personal touch and came out to meet me
and show me around before the wedding party arrived.
Philippa and her bridesmaids
arrived an hour before the ceremony to get dressed and meet up with me and the registrars. It was a
beautiful spring day so the ceremony was going to be held outside in the licensed wedding gazebo. Iain and all the guests made their

had been decorated by the bride, groom and their family and friends and was perfect for the rural setting. They had hired
not one but two bouncy castles for the children and probably the grown ups too. The wonderful buffet was served and Philippa kindly asked
me to join them. Then it was time for the speeches which are always a good time to get some great shots full of emotion.
Before I left Philippa and Iain asked if would take some photographs of them by the river as it had a special meaning to them both.
