    Love this post Martin. So much expression and emotion, I got swept along by the images and the narrative. It looks like an intensely fun and love filled day and you’ve captured it brilliantly. I bet the girls are over the moon.ReplyCancel

    Thank you so so much for the wonderful moments that you have captured for us. They are beautiful. Steph surprised me with the disks when I arrived home on Saturday and we spent a delightful few ‘hours’ looking through them over and over.

    Family, friends and colleagues have their own favourites from your blog posts. All felt the joy of the proceedings through the images regardless of whether they attended. We thought you would like to hear some of their responses so will post these separately.ReplyCancel
