Jo and Jamie got married today, the wedding was at St. James-The-Less in Stubbings and the reception was at the other side of Maidenhead at the Taplow House Hotel. They couldn’t have wished for better weather, beautiful in the morning and a little bit of cloud in the afternoon which kept the heat down nicely. It’s been quite a few years since I was last at Taplow House Hotel for a wedding but it hasn’t changed that much. It was built in 1598 and has been a hotel since 1958 so probably has seen a few brides through it’s doors in that time.
Jo and Jamie were great to work with, pretty relaxed (although I think Jamie definitely felt more relaxed after the ceremony than before :)
J and J are on honeymoon in the Seychelles at the moment so the complete gallery will be uploaded when they return. In the meantime here’s a few pictures from the deay. If you would like to know when all the wedding pictures will be available online, clickez-vous ici.
A couple of images from home. Jo patiently waits while her mum laces up the dress.

And now my very own ‘Life On Mars’ moment. For me, this is what wedding photography is all about. The image below is of Jo’s parents wedding almost exactly 35 years ago at the same church. Check out those lapels! We recreated (for the most part) the same group at Jo and Jamie’s wedding. No doubt everyone is thinking as we all do ‘how time flies’.
I always think that your wedding photographs are for 30 or 30 years time, not for the months after the wedding when you look and feel much the same. Thanks to Jo’s parents for lending me the above photo.
A little bit of impromptu pruning, baby style.
This is when my reputation as a ninja-like undercover photographer was shot to pieces.

It’s a drive-by shooting!
