Martin made my day

Martin made my day!

Martin made my day last Friday! As the weather was looking good, Ce and I decided to take a morning off and headed down to Boscombe to walk along the front to Bournemouth and back. We had just parked the car and were on our way down to the beach when I heard a message “ping” from my phone.

The message was from Martin who married Jen five years ago. I knew it was their anniversary and it was always intention to send them a message at some point in the day – we are still friends on FaceBook, but this was totally unexpected and it really made my day. In his message Martin mentioned a video I cobbled together for them. I had forgotten all about the video, I don’t do them now because the little recorder I used to use no longer works – having watched this I think I had better replace it. I always try and snap a few photos, some that I only share with the Bride and Bridegroom.

What a great day we had, full of amazing memories. I think it’s fair to say I have come a long way since then and spent thousands of pounds on training, but looking back it certainly proves to me that I have always strived to offer more.

I also think it’s worth mentioning that many couples book a photographer who leaves after the first dance – the ones I recommend often stay much later to capture the fun of the evening party!

I’m not sure if you can still get married at Marwell, I don’t think you can have your reception there any more which is a great shame. The Marwell Hotel is next door which is a another great wedding and reception venue.

I’m really excited about this Sunday’s wedding fair at Lainston House. It will be my first visit for quite some time and the first time I’ve exhibited at a wedding fair there.

Located just outside of Winchester, Lainston House offers a huge range of rooms for weddings as well as outdoor ceremony and reception spaces. I’m quite looking forward to having a good look around.
