Sharon and Thomas kindly asked me to photograph their wedding at St Andrew’s Church, Sonning, Berkshire, and the Holiday Inn, Winnersh. This was a very local wedding for me and it was nice to see the summer shaping up with a glorious bright June day.
After a few photos at their home while Sharon and family got ready, I caught up with Thomas and friends in the famous Bull at Sonning before the ceremony.
Sharon and Thomas had the excellent idea of an informal receiving line at the church after their ceremony which was a great chance for informal photos before heading off to the Holiday Inn. The setting called for some slightly more urban than usual photos for the bride and groom session so we made the most of the new architecture around the Holiday Inn before heading back for the start of the wedding breakfast.
After the meal and the formal speeches many of the guests rose to make their own impromptu speeches which were funny and moving and showed how much Sharon and Thomas were loved by their family and guests. After the bride and groom had cut their amazing cake they danced their first dance and I left them on the dance floor partying away for the night.
