I photographed weddings semi professionally for about 19 years. Packed in a few years ago as everone had an uncle Billy who had a camera, who could photograph the wedding ‘just as good as you – how can you justify the price’ – time to get out…then a friend of 30 years asked me to ‘come out of retirement’ and photograph his wedding. How could I refuse? So I photographed his wedding. A great success. Retire the cameras…now his brother has asked me to photograph his wedding to his partner. This is the last I promise 😂 I’m retiring from wedding photography after this!!!

Mother of the bride “Make me look beautiful”
Me “It’s a camera not a wand” 😂😂😂
Bride (4’6” about 15st – 210 lbs) “You’ve made me look fat”
I’ve not been your dietician for the past 30 years!
Guest “Have you photographed weddings before?”
“No I usually work for the local morgue photographing cadavers, but it’s my day off today…”
“What side does the Grooms family sit on?”
“Whatever the Bride says…”
Was once photographing a wedding in Liverpool when the Bride and her mother started arguing about her choice of groom. They’d been together 12 years and had two children! It came to fisticuffs. I left….
Plenty of more tales for another day…
Stopped shooting weddings in 2013. A friend asked me if I’d photograph his. Given I’d known him for 30 years with some trepidation I agreed….
Found this in my loft. Used it years ago when I photographed weddings on film, remember that?
It’s a Pro 4 filter holder for those that were not sure what it was. No need for it now in the digital age…
