Then came the interesting bit..... It was to be a fancy dress wedding! He said it was a 'heroes & heroines' theme and that the bride and groom would be dressed as Robin Hood and Maid Marian.
When Sue & I sat down with the family to show everyone samples of previous wedding shoots and photobooks etc, they said that most of the guests would probably be adopting a Robin Hood approach to the theme, but that there would possibly be a family of 'Incredibles' and a 'Lara Croft' there!
Well on the big day, there was no disappointment.
Sue and I rushed around in the morning to both Maid Marian's & Robin Hood's base camps, where we captured a few getting ready shots.
Sue and I arrived at the Registry office well in advance where it became clear that the registrar had not been told about the fancy dress twist and she was convinced that I was pulling her leg (until I showed her the screen on the back of my camera and the getting ready shots). That was a face of surprise!
The ceremony went without a hitch..
and everyone had a great evening
