It is always a pretty big honour to shoot another photographer's wedding, because I think that it is kind of the ultimate in peer acknowledgement. When the other half of the couple has also been a feature writer for Wedding Ideas magazine, someone who has seen literally HUNDREDS of weddings and photographers, well that is even more special to think that they would trust us to shoot their day.
We actually knew "Matt and Alice" before they were... well, Matt and Alice. Before they had even exchanged a banter ridden email about bicycles, or met up in the unequivocal 'Mecca' of love, Crewe Railway station.... We knew them, separately. I bet there is actually very few people at this wedding that can say that!
We knew Matt when he was just a young, single, oatcake eating photographer, working out of Staffordshire. We knew Alice as the accomplished features writer for real weddings at Wedding Ideas Magazine, where we had our work featured. It has been amazing for us to watch these two fall in love... and then to get to tell the story too?! Epic.
So here goes - tears, laughter, fantastic hats, cute dogs, fairground games, bikes, some yellow trousers and a whole lot of love... and don't let the fact that Matt supports Stoke City FC ruin this trailer for you either.
