In July this year I had the pleasure of being part of and photographing the wedding of Barry & Donna at the Bestwood Lodge Hotel and what a weekend it was.
When Barry & Donna contacted me about wedding photography I said yes quicker than any bride or groom has ever done, the reason is I have known Barry for a good few years and it always an honor to provide photography for a friend especially at such a milestone event in their families lives.
I decided to head over the day before to avoid an early start on the day and mitigate any risk of hitting traffic, it was also handy staying at the one venue for the whole day. I arrived in the afternoon the day before the wedding and met Donna, Family and friends in the hotel bar before we had a late lunch. It was great to meet everyone the day before, introduce myself and get to know the family.
Within a few minutes I could tell that it was going to be a great weekend spent with some great people. I even got to play Bull Dog with the children during the evening. Apparently, they are much better at it than I am.
