It may have been when Gordon Ramsey was offering me a canapé that I knew 2019 weddings were going to be a little different. And yet, there was a sunny day in a Norfolk field where the two families met with swords and shotguns. I even witnessed my first kidnapped bride so it’s hard to pin down.
It was a lot of fun (more fun than work ought to be honestly) and I came away with another store of memories and meetings with wonderful people all resonating in my head with oompah bands, gospel choirs, and summer birdsong.
What I can say for certain is that it couldn’t have been like that without working with Karen. Our distinguishable yet supportive roles during the day are essential to deliver the best we can for every wedding. From my viewpoint, having Karen utterly in control of the day’s key events and creative choices gives me the space and time to become immersed in the great swirl of human stories and emotions that orbit any wedding. What a privilege to spend time amongst families and friends and capture those momentary slices of their lives as they pass by. It’s a story telling photographer’s dream.
Roll on 2020! Mark Hewlett
