What’s a wedding without a wedding ceremony? Well I found out at Kate & Tom’s wedding celebration. (The answer is all the fun of a wedding without the stressful bit!) The happy couple wanted to have their big day on Kate’s parents’ farm in Helions Bumpstead in Essex, so they did the legal bit near their home at Islington Town Hall in London (see my friend Julie’s blog for that) and then got all their family and friends to hang out on the farm and let their hair down.

Kate is the sister of fellow wedding photographer Tom Catchesides and work colleague of his other half, family and children’s photographer Helen Bartlett, so it was like being amongst friends for most of the day. There was a real garden party atmosphere, with tents and a hog roast, and cake. So much cake.

Speeches were funny, emotional and ended with a Take That tribute by the best man and two willing assistants. Arms in the air! NEEEEEEEEVVVVVER….
