Nikki and Mark’s wedding
{The Domus at Beaulieu}

Last Saturday dawned amid heavy rain and gales down here on the Dorset coast, Earle and I left home for the New Forest to meet with Nikki and Mark with our fingers and toes crossed hoping the gale would blow the rain through before lunch time and grant Nikki her wish for sunshine on her wedding day.  She had steadfastly refused to accept the weather may be very ‘english’  for their wedding …..her steadfastness was rewarded as by the time I had left Earle at the Montagu Arms in Beaulieu village to meet with Mark and arrived in at the Forest Lodge Hotel in Lyndhurst the rain had stopped and the skies were already brightening. 

The team from Leiths at Beaulieu created a beautiful setting for the ceremony and celebrations with the flower arrangements from Jules looking quite perfect we had the enviable role of photographing this lovely couple, their families and friends enjoying a superb and highly memorable day.  Earle and I send our warmest congratulations to Nikki and Mark and hope you enjoy looking at a few of our favourite images from your wedding day, a little taster for you both and all those itching for a peek while we organise your proofs!  Oh and leave a little message here too please, it’s always lovely to hear feedback:-)

Wootton Bassett Repatriation 12th July 2011

On Tuesday I fullfilled a long time promise to myself to visit Wootton Bassett and pay my respects at a repatriation. Peter a friend of ours and myself headed off for the two hour drive at lunchtime and arrived at Wootton Bassett nice and early. When we arrived we were not alone, there were hundreds of people there already amongst them a substantial number of bikers. We got talking to a few of the bikers and many of them had attended over 50 repatriations!

When the traffic through the town stopped we knew that the convoy was on its way, the town bell tolled and the most amazing silence came over the waiting crowd – it was very very moving. The flags lowered, salutes were made and the family stepped forward. Some of the day I photographed and some I couldn’t. But I have the greatest repect for the people of Wootton Bassett, the bikers and everyone who had travelled there.
