Last Friday was the most glorious wedding of Erica & Dave!
Dave is an old, old school pal and it was fab catching up with him & getting to know Erica while they were up in Leeds for the pre-wed (post here).
But I felt so involved and looked after all weekend. I was put up at the pub in the picturesque village of Sonning with the groomsmen and had a lovely meal with them the night before the wedding. On the day I was chauffeured about and looked after by everyone. After cameras were put to bed (in my room at the Manor House!) I joined the guests for a bit of Singstar Karaoke (to a poorly selected Spice Girls ‘Wannabe’) & even managed a cheeky dance before joining the The Manor House residents for an after hours drink (including an honourary membership to Dave’s secret University ‘Rum Club’).
After I trained down to Reading the day before, Dave’s bro (& best man) Richard took me round Aldermaston Manor House (their reception venue) for a nosey. I’d done very little research on the place, and I won’t lie, I was rather happy when I found I was shooting at this place:
Amazing eh? What a spot. And that weather held up all weekend. Glorious.
ps: To all the family & guests there who made my say so enjoyable, thank you all so much!
