It’s that feeling of adventure, of everything being new and untried – I just love it!
I was delighted when Hazel and Jim asked me to photograph their wedding in July of this year and even more so when I met with them at Cheshire’s beautiful Willington Hall Hotel. Situated at the top of a hill, the views are panoramic and simply stunning. The day dawned bright and clear with temperatures climbing relentlessly as the hours passed. As someone who is, shall we say, follically challenged myself, I always ensure that I’ve applied plenty of sun screen before leaving for a summer rural wedding, but something told me I should pack the bottle in my camera bag for this one. Having mentioned to some guests that I’d brought some with me, I happily handed it over. I didn’t see it again as the bottle did the rounds of guests relaxing in the scorching sunshine, but at least no one got sunburnt!
