Elizabeth & Eric at Phyllis Court

I love this catchy, feel-good tune and thought a remix of Elizabeth & Eric's "perfect picture" photo session would be just right for it.

 

The beautiful setting was at Phyllis Court, Henley-on-Thames on one of the few sunny spring days in April. Elizabeth & Eric live in New York and brought with them plenty of family and friends as well a guests from all around the globe it seemed. A civil ceremony in the impressive Finlay Suite was followed by drinks, canapes and photos on the lawns stretching to the banks of the River Thames. Elizabeth had close competition for being star of the show from their gorgeous little daughter Amelia.

I have worked with ace photographer Mark Lord several times now and we have more weddings together later in the year, it's good that we get on well then!

After the first few dances Elizabeth bravely risked life and limb in a traditional Israeli chair dance. If you haven't seen this dance before I can assure you that it's very lively. She survived, as did my camera.

Elizabath wasn't too keen on having a video but her mum insisted. Now she says "Mum was right, we absolutely love it and are so glad we have it now." I hear that mum has bought a blu-ray player especially to watch the wedding video!

Tamar & Dan at Old Luxter’s Barn


Tamar and Dan managed to pick one of this year's few perfect spring days for their wedding at St.Peter's, Marlow followed by a pleasant short trip through the beautiful Hambledon Valley to reception at Old Luxter's Barn.

 

The barn is set within the Chiltern Valley Vineyard and is surrounded by wonderful rolling countryside and woods. The photographer was my old pal Mark Sisley who was working hard and totally professional as ever. It was so warm that we were able to sit outside for our meal and we can report that the food provided by the new caterers is very good indeed!

As you can see in the highlights montage Tamar and Dan make a great couple and together with some jolly guests and plenty of cute children this was a very enjoyable wedding to film. They have described their DVD as wonderful, amazing and beautiful and have been hosting champagne viewings of the DVD for family and friends.  My job done!
