I get excited before every wedding I shoot, but this one was a bit different. Kirsty and Steve are great friends of mine so I was thrilled when Kirsty text me a picture of her beautiful engagement ring on Christmas Day last year after a suprise proposal! They planned a fabulous woodland wedding – with a hand-fasting ceremony, a gypsy punk band, bonfires, a hog roast and hammocks – for the last weekend in August, but they had to do the formal bit at Brighton Registry Office a few days beforehand.
I got to Kirsty and Steve’s home in Brighton for 8am. They wanted to keep the registry office ceremony as simple as possible, with just their best friends Carla and Tommy along as witnesses. But it was still a really exciting morning (as you can see in the photos of Kirsty as she arrived at the town hall!) After the ceremony, we wandered along to a pub in the Laines for a glass of bubbles, and a few more friends popped in to congratulate the new Mr and Mrs. That afternoon, they rushed off to the woodlands in Winchester to start setting up for the wedding! Both weddings were fabulous and it was a pleasure to see my pals get wed. Big congratulations to you both, Kirsty and Steve! Lookin’ forward to the one year anniversary party!!
