Nicki & Dave – Toadbury Hall

18 September, 2008

Tasteful, intimate, emotional and exceptional are the words which come to mind in describing Nicki’s and Dave’s wedding.

The ceremony was nothing short of utterly beautiful, in a forest strung with crystals – and, not a dry eye in sight.   It’s especially great to see (and capture) such genuine and spur-of-the-moment emotions; shared between two people. (Sorry, Dave… I didn’t mean to spill the beans on the tears, but let’s face it – you had every single guest grabbing a Kleenex too).

The reception was a luxurious picnic on Toadbury Island – a unique little part of Toadbury Hall I never knew existed.

Originally, I was a little annoyed with myself, tackling a wedding on my birthday weekend, but as it turned out, I couldn’t have planned a better day out; doing what I love most, in great company with truly special people who clearly adore life to the full.

My second shooter. . . yep, you guessed it, the gaffer himself.  In fact, you can see Dror’s version of events here; http://www.droreyal.co.za/blog/nicki-and-david-at-toadbury-hall/

You will also see the pic, which had intimidated me a little; added to which the comment implying I’ll be posting “Killer Bee” images and, hence, the selection dilemma, plus delayed post!

That’s it.    It’s official – blame Dror for the delay! (nothing like passing the buck)

Just before Nicki left for the ceremony her sister read her a message from the UK, which had me in tears too!

The couple prepared their own vows, hence the tears!
