I was delighted when Karen and John booked my Shorter Service to cover up to four hours of their wedding at St Andrew’s Church and The Great House, Sonning by the river Thames. I started in the newly refurbished bar at The Great House to catch up with John, his groomsmen and a few guests, before heading across the road to St Andrew’s Church. The church is beautiful and has very clear ideas about where the photographer is allowed to stand. It is always an interesting challenge photographing from the choir stalls and trying to avoid the flowers and pew carvings while photographing the ceremony.
Back at The Great House, after a few group photos and informals, Karen, John and I had time for a relaxed photo session by the river on their lovely sunny day. Then, all too soon, it was time for them to take their seats for the wedding breakfast and for my day with them to end.
