“Thank you for doing such a brilliant job with our pictures” – Liz and Joe
Liz and Joe got married in Snailwell near Newmarket on a beautiful summer’s day last year. I’ve chosen a few of my favourite moments below to hopefully show a bit of the individual flavour of the day. There are literally hundreds of other lovely images of people enjoying themselves, vows being said and cakes being cut but I always like to look for the individual moments that make each wedding day slightly special and different.
As ever, nothing below was staged or set up in any way and I work really hard on a wedding day to be as unobtrusive as possible. I think it’s my job to record the wedding as it really is, without influencing the proceedings, and to create a faithful historical record of such a special day for the couple and their family to look back on and reflect on in later years.
I hope you enjoy them! I will provide a bit of commentary between images as needed!
