Rebecca & Glenn initially chose our standard 15 page album. However they fell in love with so many images that they upgraded to a 20 page album to accommodate over 150 of their favourite photos.

The day was bathed in sunlight, thankfully, as the days leading upto the wedding the skies continually rained resulting in very wet and soft grass areas and flooding the river Nene. The beauty of the Haycock Hotel is that there are plenty of ‘hard standing’ options when required so we opted for ‘plan B’ and the day went without a hitch. We were especially excited with the prospect of an official Guards Honour (a first for us), also with some of Charlotte’s and Iain’s colleagues re-forming a band to entertain during the evening, which leads to another ‘first’. After the band played a personal song for Charlotte & Iain, Rob (Strobe Disco Roadshow) announced the first dance. Everyone gathered as the newly wed couple embraced for a smooch when suddenly the music changed to the Birdy Song with Charlotte & Iain performing the mandatory arm waving and bum wiggling to everyones delight. It wasn’t cheesy at all, but strangely fitting, a brilliant idea - a special moment on many levels for everyone to smile at in years to come.
A huge Congratulations to Charlotte & Iain. We have full respect and admiration for the work you both do, here are some of your best bits ……..
Venue - Haycock Hotel, Wansford
Disco - Strobe Disco Roadshow
Band - The Flaming Shambles

The day started for us at 10.00 am at Rebecca’s parents farm, in Aslackby, Lincolnshire, with a very relaxed bride and bridesmaids all getting prepared for Rebecca & Glenn’s big day. The ceremony was at 1.00pm so I left the bridal preparations at 12.00 to catch the Groom and Groomsmen leaving the pub for a short walk to the church to meet the friends and family arriving. Unfortunately my infamous sun dance didn’t work, the dark skies threatened for most of the morning and they finally deciding to rain 10 minutes before Rebecca was due, however we thankfully managed to get Rebecca from the bridal car to the church in-between the showers.
Once in the Church Rebecca’s bubbly personality started to shine through with her infectious smile and loving gaze the whole ceremony was a delight. Even when Rebecca couldn’t hold back the emotions any longer Glenn calmly wiped the tears from Rebecca’s cheek with a tenderness apparent to all.
After the 25 minutes of group shots we had a 30 mile trip to Wansford. We were working to a tight schedule to make sure we could get all of the shots without impacting on Rebecca & Glenn’s day too much and before we could catch our breath we were photographing the evenings partying at 10.00 pm on the dance floor.
Congratulations to Rebecca & Glenn. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves photographing your big day, looking forward to finishing the design of your albums artwork, its going to be stunning!!! Here are a few of your best bits, enjoy …..
We are currently putting the finishing touches to Jane & Tom’s Storybook artwork. Can’t wait to see the finished album and hand it over to the lovely Jane & Tom.

A gentle stroll along the river, with me clicking as we go, soon allowed Rebecca & Glenn to relax into the shoot, and dare we say it, actually have fun. The key to good wedding photography (in our opinion) is getting the couple to relax, not over-pose every situation, and allow the camera to tell the story and capture those lovely relaxed and intimate moments. Needless to say after seeing the photos Rebecca Glenn both loved them, fully understanding why we have this session prior to the big day. Rebecca emailed to say:
Hello Andrew, hope your well.. I just wanted to say on behalf of Glenn and I that we love the engagement photos, we are very much looking forward to the wedding day and not so nervous now :)
Here are a few select shots of the hour session, can’t wait until their big day in April.
