Jon & Sam’s wedding day at Birdlip.

Single sex wedding at The George, Birdlip, Glos.

Jon and Sam’s wedding was always going to be a special occasion but this was a special day for me too. After fifteen years of photographing weddings, Jon & Sam’s would be my last one …and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day for us all.

I’d met them a few weeks earlier with Liz & Andrew, Jon’s Mum and Dad and Michelle, Sam’s Mum. We’d sat in the garden at The Royal George Hotel and chatted about the arrangements for the Big Day and the kind of shots they wanted. I felt really comfortable with all of them as though I’d known them for ages. I was so pleased that Sam & Jon had decided to have a professional photographer to photograph their special day, I knew they wouldn’t regret it.

I think the pictures below give a pretty good idea of how perfect Sam & Jon’s wedding was, far better than I could describe this lovely day.

As you’ll see I’ve been a little indulgent and added a picture of myself with the boys, not something I usually do! I’ve also added the ‘Thank You’ I received from Jon’s parents. I couldn’t ask for a nicer way to end this part of my photography journey.

Not a bad picture Pete. Thank you for taking it.

“Dear Maggie
Thank you so much for sending the pictures. Wow, they are fabulous and capture  the essence of the day completely. We really appreciate your attention to detail and how you blended in with the guests so that we hardly knew you were taking the photographs. The ones of the Ceremony are gorgeous and so too are the ones of Jon & Sam in the woodland setting.
We can’t believe this is your last wedding, you are so talented and I’m very thankful that you were recommended and were able to take Jon & Sam’s photos. Wishing you all the best in the future, enjoy more free time and take lots of holidays”
Liz & Andrew
