A chance to catch up with the special people in our lives

The recent wedding of Nick and Emma gave Michael and me the ideal opportunity to catch up with our special friends who have enriched our lives in so many different ways

The wedding was small, which meant careful consideration of who we could include on the guest list

Over the years Michael and I have gathered 4 different set of friends from different times in our lives who in most cases had never met

Friends who have been around forever, friends who we met through Nick growing up and his school activities, friends we have met through our farm related activities and friends who I have met through Art4agriculture

There was a significant gap between the wedding service and the reception for those special   lifetime memories of the special day to be recorded through the lens.

This opened up a unique opportunity for Michael and me to have a pre reception party for our friends and close relatives which opened the door for them all to meet 

And wow thanks to the generosity of the gorgeous Robin we had access to perfect venue to to do this and a great time was had by all

Magnificent spot for a party
