True story, when Aoife and Ali first got in touch about their wedding at the wonderful Syon House in Syon Park, London, they asked me if I’d ever been there before. Yes but many, many moons ago and it was a photo shoot with Sir Cliff Richard. I remember him leaning off a balcony looking wistful.. Anyway, it was nice to be back as this is a truly magnificent venue. I spotted some wedding photos of the current owners on a side table with the actual Queen in them! Yes, it’s a helluva fancy place.

The bride and groom were super lovely and they know how to throw a mighty bash. After a beautiful and personal ceremony in the main house, we made use of the interiors for photos, including one of those super long galleries that were built for having a walk about in and a gossip after dinner. Then we all headed to the Great Conservatory for the reception. This was my favourite part, the light is gorgeous and the collection of botanics is very impressive. Who knew that’s what a cactus can grow to after a few hundred years?!


I’ve been all around the world, Marching to the beat of a different drum, But Just lately I have realised, MAYBE THE BEST is yet to come …
