Wedding | Alex & Carolyn

Last month in the Cotswolds, I photographed Alex and Carolyn. I had been looking forward to their wedding at The Rectory Hotel ever since first meeting them in London last year, bonding over our shared love of Mad Men and the silver fox, Roger Sterling. I knew their wedding would be gorgeous to photograph, and it certainly was. Beautiful details and lots of love.

There was lots of laughter.

And yes, I was balancing the steering wheel whilst getting this shot…

I do love English weddings. We certainly know how to rock our hats.

I love first dances when the couple are so wrapped up in each other.
