Over to Andrew: A couple of weeks ago I had a great time photographing Kirk and Linzi’s fabulous
wedding.

.
The morning with Linzi was very calm until Linzi’s bridesmaids turned up, all eight of them, and things then began to change! Being a man I’m not really an expert on ladies shoes, however Linzi’s shoes looked awesome, and her dress was amazing, see for yourself!

Kirk and his entourage were getting ready a few minutes away and were all surprised when a vintage bus arrived to take them to the Salvation Army for the ceremony. This was a huge surprise, but was topped by Linzi’s parents arranging a Horse and Carriage for Linzi to be taken to the ceremony in style.

After the ceremony we all headed over to the Ricoh Arena, home of Kirk’s beloved Coventry City. We were even allowed to take a few shots on the hallowed turf.

The speeches were hilarious, I think Kirk’s best man Dave deserves a mention as his speech has to be one of the funniest Best Man speeches I have ever heard!
