st wilfred’s and rudding park wedding

Thea and Steve Parry were married at the glorious St Wilfred’s church in Harrogate and then onto Rudding Park for the celebrations.  The day started wet – but no one let it bother them – we knew it was going to be a very special day.  And true to form the sun came out later… thea-steve_162

I have known both Thea and Steve for a number of years as I photographed Thea’s sister’s wedding, and I had an inkling that Steve had something to do with the world of sport.  However it wasn’t until the speeches – and having seen a few well known faces in amongst the guests – that it became apparent that Steve is an ex Olympic swimmer and BBC sports commentator.  Well obviously it was apparent to all his family and friends, it appears it is only me who walks around in my own little world!  So the moral of the story is…  If you are from the world of sport or TV, don’t book me to cover you day if you expect me to recognise anyone! 

Tickled both Thea and Steve and they assured me they would much rather have it that way.  But then, I have to say… Thea it was all about you girl!thea-steve_005thea-steve_064thea-steve_057
