Michelle & Keiron’s wedding was very different from the normal mixture of posed family groups and reportage pictures that make up most weddings. Starting at the bride’s house full of mirrors and black and white with red walls in the boudoir, I knew we were in for a fun day. Michelle and I had never met in person till that moment – but had got to know each other through lively descriptions of her family life by email, the first of which arrived when I was in Egypt back in February this year.
Michelle’s highly confident and fun little boys are the light of her life … They even gave her away and during the wedding reception did a double act delivering the funniest wedding speeches ever!
Michelle had a burlesque hen night so was not shy of showing off her lovely figure and flamboyant but practical wedding boots.
The vicar – Father Paul – at Mill Hill Unitarian Chapel in Leeds is no stranger to the media, as used to work for the BBC, so he was happy for the Jorge and me to move around during the service to get a good variety of shot. The whole emphasis being on making the bride and groom’s day. They even sat round chatting and drinking champagne in church with the guests after the ceremony!
Michelle couldn’t wait to get outside and play with the kids by the water fountains
