I’ve never started a wedding day with actual shotguns before. But it seems as good a way as any. I joined Dom and some friends for a spot of clay pigeon shooting first thing. Well… I say it was clay pigeon shooting. It was more like clay pigeon escaping from what I saw, but they had fun anyway, and that’s the main thing. Then I headed over to see Lucy getting ready and from there on in it just got better and better. Dogs, tractors, wellies, pimms, sunshine and golden fields of hay. What more could anyone ask for on their wedding day. I’ve shot quite a few weddings in this neck of the woods recently (you might even see some familiar faces further down) and I have to say, I really love it. Great people, wonderful countryside and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Oh, and I should say a big hello to Lucy’s lovely grandmother, who I had the pleasure of sitting next to for dinner. Hello! Okay – on with the show…
