It’s a powerful image, a bride walking down the aisle unaccompanied, but this was the noble decision that Charlotte took. Having lost her father to Alzheimer’s, she simply felt that no-one was big enough to fill his shoes. And rightly so. Determined to make him as much a part of the ceremony as she could, a former artist, she named each table after one of his paintings and a member of her family gave a beautiful speech about him so that everyone in the room could know the man who Charlotte so loved. He was, thanks to his incredible daughter, very much part of her wedding.

And so, as you might imagine, the ceremony was emotive, held at Rivervale Barn in Yately, a place fast becoming one of my favourite wedding venues; the food always delicious and the team infectiously enthusiastic.

After the wedding breakfast Chris, Charlotte and I hotfooted it outside to take some shots in the gardens. Hats off to Charlotte who was not at all precious about getting her feet (and dress) wet in order to get some pictures. It helps that her husband, Chris, is utterly hilarious – his one liners legendary. But you’d have to have a serious sense of humour to stomach what his stags did to him, making him dress in a head-to-toe leather gimp outfit at Heathrow airport. The less said about that the better…

In true Olympic fashion, the ping-pong table was an instant hit with 10 stalwart players at the end of the night refusing to budge, immersed in some sort of tag team game. Very amusing to watch, their co-ordination directly proportional to the amount they drank. Pretty sure they didn’t have that problem in Rio…

Congratulations Charlotte and Chris. A fun-filled, beautiful and heart-felt celebration.
