It was an early start for this Le Manoir wedding, no doubt about it. I climbed wearily onto the first train into London and headed to Mayfair to meet Katie and Ross who were getting ready together which, although it's not the norm, is a really lovely thing as they can enjoy the whole of the day together.
Well, OK, it took several coffees to get going but it was well worth the tear-jerkingly early start!
Motoring through Mayfair in one of London's finest black cabs; a romantic ceremony with just four people; breakfast at Tom's Kitchen (even I got to have some - delicious Eggs Benedict!) and dodging the storms at Le Manoir.
I loved this wedding and there are so many high points it's untrue! The weather wasn't ideal but - and you always have to look on the bright side - it did create some magical images. I love stormy weather images - and at Le Manoir, a swan had come down onto the pond taking shelter from the gales above: in 10 years of photographing weddings at Le Manoir, I don't think I have ever seen a swan on that pond! Beautiful!
