Last weekend I travelled up the M40 and M6 to Stafford, to help my friend Gill Taylor shoot the wedding of Carolyn and Adam in Stafford.
This was my first wedding shoot since I moved back to the UK from the Caribbean, so I was looking forward to working in cooler, more comfortable temperatures – but also with light that’s a bit less bright than I have been used to! As it turned out, the sun shone, so it wasn’t all that different. 🙂
It was certainly a fun wedding to shoot – Adam is from Stafford (but of Scots descent, hence the Royal Stuart tartan) while Carolyn is from the USA, so it was a big get-together with family members from both sides of the pond meeting for the first time…
The service was held at St. Mary’s Collegiate Church in the centre of Stafford, and the reception took place in the elegant surroundings of the Moat House in Acton Trussell.
The flags of both nations float proudly in the breeze over the Moat House:

Adam’s brother Craig gave a hysterically funny speech as “best man”:
