Claire & Ian's wedding in Denham and Great Fosters

More rain for a wedding day but once again the special event ignored the weather and left the lovely couple and guests with some fabulous memories of a great day. Claire and Ian were married in St Mary's Church in Denham which is their family church as it is right next door to where Ian grew up, so a very personal service was followed by a trip to the beautiful Great Fosters in Egham for the reception.

Although the guests could not enjoy the grounds to the fullest they were greeted with the site of a McLaren SLR parked up outside, a special surprise present from bride to groom (the couple work for McLaren) unfortunately for him it wasn't to take home but we made great use of the photo opportunity. After the food and speeches the band got the party going into the small hours.

Bit of a story with this one. I shot a portraiture shoot of the couple before their wedding and they used an image from that to create a bottle label so every guest had a personal memento of their day.

Reception fun

A great kiss to end the evening
