Sarah and Mark: A Summer Garden Party Wedding in June

Ooh I do love a marquee in the garden, it’s so personal and when the weather behaves, you can’t get better. I arrived to an oasis of calm, Sarah’s brothers were whipping up scrambled eggs and salmon for the masses whilst the girls reminisced about old times as they got ready in Sarah’s old bedroom, which hadn’t changed in 20 years!! Mark is a singer/songwriter, a film critic, and an Irish man, needless to say he’s a lot of fun.

When I arrived at Harts Hotel, Mark and the boys were in fits of giggles at their totally inability to put their button holes on, the nerves soon dissipated and the laughs flowed all the way down to St Barnabas Cathedral. The weather was perfect, warm with lots of cloud cover for that beautiful soft early summer light. The ceremony was beautiful and the priest really worked the crowd and shared some poignant thoughts on marriage and the power of love.The guests made their way back to the reception in a fleet of taxis to be greeted with delicious canapés, acoustic guitar and copious amounts of champagne.

The reception was full of laughter and fun, fantastic speeches and a seriously busy dance floor.My brief was very clear, to be discreet, to concentrate on capturing the essence of the day, which is exactly how I like to play it.

You have captured the emotion and family feel of the night so effortlessly. Gerry was initially not that fussed about having them and now he can't stop showing them to people!!! Very proud indeed :) well done to you for a fantastic job. Truly grateful”.
