I first met and Jon whilst in redcar high street, during a creative market. They approached me about capturing their special day for them and how they had brought it forward because of Karen’s mum been ill.

With everything in place the big day came. The weather wasn’t the best, it kept raining and the wind was so strong. However we weren’t going to be beaten. After Karen’s house we headed to the church, to arrive just before the bride. Karen looked stunning as she walked down the isle, only thing was I wasn’t expecting the flower girls to keep on walking and they practically walked straight up to the front of my camera!

Mid-service, while looking through my camera I took a step forward to take an image only to hit my elbow on the lectern, OOUUCCHH, it hurt. I am sure Karen laughed at this point!

Outside the church the weather had dried up but it was still blowing a gale so we decided to head back to the Starting Gate for the reception, there we would do the formal shots best we could.

This has got to be one of the tightest group shots I have had to do and I think it came out just perfect! Karen’s mum passed away a few weeks before the wedding but I am sure she will have been looking down and would be proud of the day. May I wish John and Karen all the very best for the future.
