The main things you need to know are that Sarah and Rick have a tortoise called Darwin and he’s ace and two lovely cats called Pixie and Rupert and their first dance was ‘Let’s Dance’ – Bowie, played by a brass band. I am so grateful to a series of couples who recommended me to their families and friends resulting in a few weddings at Abbeywood Estate in Cheshire. This helped other Abbeywood couples find me and now this is one of my favourite places to photograph weddings without a doubt. Sarah and Rick chose an outdoor ceremony on the hottest day of the year and although I have photographed at Abbeywood a number of times the outdoor set up and relentless sun threw a whole new twist on the venue. Jo Clarke from held the Outdoor ceremony which was amazing to photograph as the lack of walls meant I could get vastly different perspectives on the ceremony. Oh yeah – did I mention Sarah had a ‘Bridesman’  Why is this not a normal thing!? ‘Best women’ ‘Bridesmen’ these need to become normal. Sarah wore a Pronovias dress and a special mention to ‘Honeyshideaway’ for an incredible bouquet and @hairbyjayne
