I photographed Fran’s sister Dani’s wedding to Tim about 18 months ago at Dunston Hall in Norfolk and then following their engagement, Fran and Richard kindly asked me if I’d make the trip up to Stancliffe Hall in Derbyshire to photograph their wedding. It was great to see everyone again and catch up with Dani and Tim and a host of other guests who I seem to see on a semi-regular basis on the Norfolk ‘wedding circuit’!
Both Dani and Fran have married into the services which is not surprising given that their dad was in the RAF. Tim’s career in the navy meant that he came in for a lot of gentle mickey-taking from father-in-law during his speech as inter-forces rivalry kicked in but Richard’s RAF associations saw him escape pretty much unscathed (in fact I think Tim still came in for a bit of stick for being in the navy at this wedding). Full dress uniform was the order of the day for Richard and a lot of the boys which always makes for some fabulous pictures especially as the weather was fabulous just when we needed it on the day.
