Stephanie + Jason - A Wedding In Rye - The Gallivant

I went to Stephanie and Jason's wedding a few weeks ago. It was great. Really, really great.

As always for me it was a privilege to be the one trusted to witness it all. Every wedding I shoot is like being an honorary family member for the day and I think that's a big deal. Thank you Stephanie and Jason.

The following photographs are intended to show you what it was like to be a participant at this wedding. I'm not interested in preconceived ideas of how wedding pictures should or shouldn't look. I'm not shooting for awards. I'm not shooting to please blogs. The only preconception is that of my eye as a photographer - what I notice and how I see the world. Other than that, it's pure documentary.

'Come and shoot a birthday party', they said, 'It'll be fun', they said - and it was! Except that the birthday party was actually a secret engagement party and at one point I was only one of three people to know that to be the case.

No pressure then. 

Still, there's no pressure that a couple of double gin and tonics wont fix and I wasn't the one who had to do the surprise proposing... just take pictures of it.

Well done Ricky, you nailed it. Congratulations to you both and thank you for inviting me to be part of it.  Here's some stuff that happened.
