The best weddings are always the ones where you get to spend them with friends and family, and I was incredibly lucky on 17th August this year to see one of my high school friends get married! The happy couple were surrounded by their friends and family, and it was also an amazing chance for me personally to catch up with an entire generation of my friends. Patrick and Shiho also had one very special guest there to see them become husband and wife: their gorgeous daughter Mila! You should be able to spot her cheeky grin in some of these photographs – she was an absolute dream to work with.
Brock House was the location for Patrick and Shiho’s wedding ceremony, and this is a place that I have wanted to photograph at for many years. The interior of the house is stunning, and the sunshine that greeted the friends and families of Patrick and Shiho perfected everything off nicely. Shiho’s parents travelled all the way from Japan to see their beautiful daughter married to the man of her dreams, and it was a really emotional and poignant ceremony. The reception was in a tent in the gardens of Brock House, and I got the chance to snap some lovely photographs of the families and friends enjoying themselves.
If there is one thing that stands out from Patrick and Shiho’s wedding, it is that the atmosphere was kept really relaxed and cheerful. Instead of frightening formal affair, it was much more like a festive celebration. There were not any speeches, and there was even a hilarious game where everyone was given a dollar, and a rock/paper/scissors tournament commenced! I had such a great time at Patrick and Shiho’s wedding, and as you can see from the smiles on everyone’s faces, I don’t think that I was the only one!
