What a wonderful way to spend my birthday, photographing the wedding of Pippa and Danny at the Olde Bell Hotel, Hurley, Berkshire. I have photographed hundreds of weddings but this was the only one to feature high speed (ish) chases on a mobility scooter and to show the perils of having a cheese stack for a wedding cake on a very hot day (Brie clearly doesn’t have sufficient structural integrity to form a lower tier). There were many laughs through the day, and a lovely wedding ceremony in the barn at The Olde Bell, a dark, but atmospheric venue, where the wedding breakfast was also held a couple of hours later.
The great weather meant that Pippa, Danny and I were able to head across the road for a few photographs around the lovely gardens of the Olde Bell’s Malt House, before heading back to join everyone else celebrating their wedding day in the small garden behind the barn. Thanks to Pippa and Danny for an unforgettable wedding day (and birthday).
