Chris & Pat’s Dorset wedding photography, in Sturminster Newton.

Aug 19, 2012

Chris & Pat’s wedding was as sweet, chaotic, unconventional and flippin’ lovely as they are.

We used to work together, a decade and a half ago, in a school for kids with Autistic Spectrum Disorders – and bar now that period was the happiest of my working life.  Due in large part to these two – full of generosity, humour, kindness, and (as Best Man Sam most eloquently put in his perfect speech), they give the best of themselves to others, without hesitation.

So, after a whirlwind 18-year courtship, they were married yesterday in their home town of Sturminster Newton, surrounded by family, close friends, and their two beautiful daughters.  It was a sunny afternoon filled with laughter and affection, and possibly a few glasses of the bubbly stuff.  After eating, we headed to a local beauty spot – Sturminster Mill, in order to take some portraits – you may notice Chris wasn’t entirely solemn for these -, and for me to electrocute myself and fall down a river bank (true story. I like to bring some entertainment, nay clowning, to the day).

I had an ace day.  I think everyone did.  Here is a peek:

    So peeved I missed this day, congrats to them both. Slightly disappointed that there are no photos of Chris dancing on a table, that was always the highlight of my evenings out with him before…
