I’ve written and re-written the introduction to this wedding about 4 times already. I think it must be a Monday morning thing. So… I’ll keep it to the point. A wedding, in a field, with flags, games, lovely people and some ramblers. And inspired by Glastonbury. Here’s Part 1.

While the final adjustments were being made to hair and make-up, I went and played hide and seek with the cats. This is a bit like a feline version of where’s wally?

I just think Charlotte has the most amazing smile. It radiates happiness.

I left Charlotte with her bridesmaids and headed over to the field where the wedding was being held. It was right next to the Thames (as you’ll see in a minute) and the outdoor ceremony actually backed on to the river.

They’d also got some lovely flags to finish off that festival vibe.

Once everyone had gathered, Charlotte made her entrance.

Just before the ceremony got underway we all said hello to a passing narrowboat.

The Humanist ceremony was really lovely and they had some great readings.

It’s an official FACT that you always get the best expressions from people just after the ceremony.
