It’s coming up to being 10 years since I was at school with Nicola so it was a real pleasure to be asked to photograph her wedding which took place in Warwickshire in May. Her and Paul have been together for, like, ever and the love they have for each other is incredibly evident and contagious. When Paul suggested we get a cream tea after their engagement session, I knew their wedding wasn’t going to disappoint! Paul excitably told me about a surprise he’d arranged for Nicola on the day which came in the form of a falconry display. I wasn’t really sure what to expect but I can safely say that I now think every wedding should have one! Absolutely brilliant entertainment, even my second shooter was hankering for a go! They were married at Holy Trinity church in Stratford and then went on to have their reception at the Menzies Welcombe Hotel which is a beautiful venue with absolutely stunning grounds that I could quite easily have photographed in all day. A special mention also to Darren Campbell, their amazing magician who I have had the pleasure of working with twice now and who is just incredible. He literally left everyone with their mouths open and lost for words. I know that Nicola and Paul are going to be incredibly happy for a very long time and I really am so so pleased to have been able to be involved with their wedding. Looking forward to September now when I get to shoot Nicola’s bridesmaid as the bride and Nicola as a bridesmaid!
