It was a big decision whether to have the ceremony outdoors as the forecast wasn't great. The team at Langley Castle watched the skies while Victoria was being pampered upstairs.
Langley Castle is a very historic building and for centuries Ladies have used the light from this window for their make-up application. The lady in the portrait (with the ferret) seems to approve!
Did Victoria choose the dress or did the dress choose Victoria? Apparently not at all like the dress she had planned but it looked absolutely beautiful.
A very thoughtful gift.
I was with the girls for over an hour as they went through their transformations. One of George's spangly things worked loose in her hair but that's what sisters are there for...
...and it was a pretty good result when George and Victoria were ready for action.
Dad was left (almost) speechless. I can't begin to imagine the thoughts and emotions that go through a Dad's mind when he sees his daughter(s) at this point in the day, but I do enjoy being there to photograph it.
And so outside for the ceremony. It rained a little bit on the guests but they soon took shelter under a convenient tree and everything carried on as planned.
Both Mums gave very emotional readings. Andrew's Mum read from this cute little book which was very sweet.
Victoria, Andrew and I found a dry spot under the trees for a few minutes of "formal" photos.
The speeches were at the start of the meal and were great fun. The boys, all gifted, natural speakers, gave great performances and they were well received with the traditional mix of humour, emotion and embarrassment.
Victoria and Andrew's day was a lot of fun for me and all the guests and families seemed to be having a good time too.
Congratulations to you both and I'll talk to you soon.
