Kim and Prue at Windsor Guildhall
Eight years ago I was commissioned by Mike Bussey to photograph his family on location in Cornwall for his wife Connie’s 50th birthday. I’ve since photographed the family together at home and have formed a lovely client friendship that I value enormously. They are a very special family.When Kim Bussey announced she was marrying Prue at Windsor Guildhall this year, I was more than delighted that they invited me to be a part of the day to photograph the wedding.
Having been childhood friends, spending their early years at Primary School together, they lost touch during secondary school and on in to their careers. It was earlyJanuary 15 that Prue got back in touch with Kim and it transpired they were both living close to each other – Prue’s brilliant wedding speech also elaborated on their early dating days. Both girls’ mums gave heart warming and humorous speeches and the seismic feeling of love within the family and friends of these two was prevalaent through the day – it really was a day to be a part of.
Kim and Prue’s amazing suits (and Prue’s shirt) were the cut of ThomasThomas – do check them out for sharp adrogynous style. SJ Weston who heads up ThomasThomas also made alternations to Kim’s shirt.
After their emotional ceremony at Windsor Guidlhall, the girls hot footed to quite probably the most relaxed reception I’ve been to in 25 years of shooting weddings. I mean what more do you need than a gin bar, a landcover pizza oven, champagne and people you love..?
