I was contacted by Olivia from A Beautiful Life Photography asking if I would like to second shoot with her and of course the answer was yes! I love second shooting. It offers all the joy of wedding photography with a little creativity thrown in. It is also pretty nerve wracking though - I don't have a relationship with the couple, I haven't pre-visited the venue and in this case I hadn't met the primary shooter, Olivia. 

My day started off with Gary, the groom, and his bunch of slightly crazy groomsmen and adorable son. When I arrived, they were already dressed and the jokes were flowing, as was the beer! We headed outside for a few quick snaps before heading off to Stoke Place

Soon after we reached the venue, it was time for Gary and Sophie to get married. Sophie looked beautiful and the service was filled with lovely personal touches. 

The rest of the celebrations were fun, emotional and memorable. The speeches were hilarious (especially the father of the bride's!) and the dance floor was packed at the end of the night.

Overall, a great day and I hope to be able to work with Olivia again in the future.
