I’ve had last-minute bookings before. A month before the wedding usually. I even had one two weeks before the big day once. But Rachael and Yazdi have set a benchmark that I’m convinced will never be beaten. They booked me for their wedding less than 2 hours before the ceremony was due to start. A ceremony at Kilworth House Hotel near Lutterworth, an hour away from me on a good day.

Luckily my gear and outfit were both ready as I was on call to cover a pregnant friend, so I jumped in the car, arriving with 15 minutes to spare. ‘She always does things last minute’, Rachael’s sister told me as I snapped a couple of shots before heading down to the ceremony. A normal wedding with no surprises coming up next!
