There was a heatwave, Exploding Kittens, Mario Kart, a handmade dress, sunflowers and pigs.
Before anyone worries Exploding Kittens is a popular card game, no cats got so hot they popped, I might have nearly melted a bit though.
It wasn’t quite the hottest wedding that summer, but close.

I ended up here because many years ago I photographed the band Sean was in, Tubelord (their debut album was reissued last year), at a festival called Offset. When it came to planning his wedding with the wonderful Lizzie, he thought of me.
Lizzie made her own dress and drank a cup of tea whilst delivering her speech, he’s a lucky man.

After the personal and sunny humanist ceremony in the garden of Lizzie’s parents, the cake was cut, and speeches were made before heading down to a neighbouring barn for the reception. Family and friends contributed so much to this day, I do hope these pictures bring back all those memories of the people who care for them and what they did for their wedding.

After the food it was time to play, a game of Mario Kart on the Switch was on offer, various card games, beer pong… or you could just dance to the best cheesiest playlist I’ve heard in a longtime. I was very impressed, I haven’t danced to B*Witched in years.
