When I first met Helen and Pete, they told me something which filled me with both confidence and terror in equal measure.

“Photography is the most important part of our wedding,” said Helen. “Oh, and my dad’s a professional photographer.”

No pressure then!

But I needn’t have worried. The day was so meticulously planned, there was little chance of anything going wrong. And aided by my good friend Andy as the second-shooter, we knew we’d have every moment covered.

The one moment in particular that Helen wanted captured was Pete’s reaction as he turned to see his bride-to-be coming up the aisle. Thankfully – and I say this in an unashamed selfish sense from a photographer’s viewpoint – he broke down in tears as Helen was just a few steps away from him. Pete may not thank me for drawing attention to those photos in particular, but it really was a heart-warming moment.

After their ceremony at St John the Baptist church in Barnack, guests headed down a nearby alley-way which led to Barnack Cricket Ground, where the marquee was stood.

This really was the kind of wedding that I would have loved to have been a guest at. A fish-n-chips wedding breakfast, the ice-cream factory dessert, a krispy kreme stack for the wedding cake. Not that I’m at all obsessed by food…

There were some superb personal touches too. All of the tables were named after Yorkshire sayings as a nod to Pete’s background. There was a wall of 1000 origami cranes – a traditional Japanese good-luck charm – which Pete had hand-folded. And Helen’s dad gave one of the best father-of-the-bride speeches I have ever heard.

I could go on, but these pictures tell the story of the day better than I can do so with words, so here goes…
