I had the utter pleasure of photographing Janine & Michael’s Suffolk wedding in September.
It was another wedding (like Holly & Paul’s) that brought a piece of my home town, South Woodham Ferrers, further afield.
For Janine’s Mum is in the SWIFT singers, a choir from SWF. They put on a wonderful surprise performance for the couple as soon as we returned from St Peter & St Paul’s church to The Swan for the reception. It was also a surprise for me! Betty, my dinner lady at my primary school is in the choir!
To top it off Josephine, one of the bridesmaids, I have known since I was about 7 years old. She used to come over my house to play with my little sister. It was really lovely to catch up.

Anyway back to the wedding, Janine wore a wonderfully delicately sparkly dress from Bellissima Weddings, the speeches were particularly hilarious and their last minute band booking turned out to be a highlight.
I can now highly recommend The Hyps if you want your reception dancefloor filled all night!
