Oh my days I am so lucky!! Leanne and Peter got married outside in the beautiful Tree Cathedral in Milton Keynes. This was my third time photographing a wedding here, and I get so excited (and also a little bit 'oooh what if it rains though'?!). We were not disappointed with the weather and had to seek the shade as the glorious summer sun shone its way and lit up the beautiful spot. Leanne's close friend came all the way from America to officiate the wedding, and they were gathered by all their friends who had also traveled across the globe to be there. I was over the moon to see Sonia and Danny there, whose wedding I also photographed at the Tree Cathedral a few years before!
The whole day was incredibly relaxed and fun, it was just perfect and my most favourite type of wedding. I was overjoyed to have been seated amongst their friends for an afternoon tea with mini little cakes and sandwiches, and scones with jam and cream! I filled my boots! It really was special. The effort that had gone into the detail was incredible, Peter had crafted the name places, and made all the little butterflies. His mum made the beautiful blue ceramic bowls and vases, it was all delicately done. Friends and family had made the cakes, and Leanne had made one of them too!
The afternoon turned into a scorcher, the football was playing at the bar and England made it into the semi-finals. I whisked Leanne and Peter off for a little stroll while the amazing Lincoln kept the guests entertained with his fabulous piano skills.
The pizza van rolled up a little later, and everyone was just relaxed as they laughed, drank, and danced the evening away. What an incredible day, for such an incredible pair. I really was honoured to be there. xx
