I was ever so pleased when Sophie and Ian first got in touch. Most of the weddings I photograph take place in Surrey and London so to be invited down to East Sussex was exciting. I soon had the chance to get to know them at the family home. I will always fondly remember us gathered around the barbecue on a summers afternoon looking at Sophie's Mum and Dad's wedding album, It was wonderful to see what it meant to Sophie's Mum. There were some lovely moments taken of her and her father. As we talked I could see how important photography was to the family. When the day finally came clearly a tremendous amount of effort had been put in by Sophie's parents. Everything from the marque going up to the beautifully decorated church and evening celebrations.
