So, back in August me and my trusty Tom Tom took the long trip up to Lancashire for the very colourful wedding of Caroline and Robbo. Robbo was another of my old chums from my rugby playing days at London Welsh and it was just lovely to have the opportunity to photograph his and Carolines’ (whom I knew well too) wedding.
Caroline looked absolutely stunning, and Robbo scrubbed up well too.
Incidentally, Robbo is ‘growing a tash’ for the excellent Movember charity event. If you fancy, you can sponsor him here: http://uk.movember.com/mospace/528238/
The ceremony took place at the parish church local to Caroline parent house, Shireshead St. James in Forton. Robbo, being very Australian, had ensured there were plenty of Antipodean tilts to wedding including the official bridal transportation of a VW Camper Van (and a very cool one too!).
After a wonder ceremony, the party continued at the incredible Leighton Hall in Carnforth. It was great for me to catch up with many old faces, including past clients (Ali & Matt), and future clients Ali (whose wedding I am shooting in a few weeks), and Ian and Clare who booked me shortly after.
Although I’d been in some peculiar situations with Robbo in the past (both on the field and off!), I never knew that he had a singing voice of the very highest calibre. For the first dance, Robbo walked down the spiral stairs singing a perfect rendition of the love song that they first danced too. Genuinely, he can sing – it blew my mind frankly, and it makes the X-Factor contestants look very amateurish.
For me, the journey home was delayed by an hour as I waited for several very large cows to finish fighting in the small country lane outside Leighton Hall (which is quite a scene close up!).
As usual, all photographs here taken in a Reportage Wedding Photography style. Robbo and Caroline did have some group shots, as most weddings do of course.
