We went to a wonderful wedding on Saturday where the reception was at Kelmarsh Hall (I had not been before but it is a beautiful house). Long before the Bride and Groom took to the floor for their first dance, Evie did so. This was completely unprompted, and I'm really glad I was there to witness it. Clearly I am biased, but I rather like this, and I hope you do too.

The sort of image the official photographer often misses, sadly. Well done Nigel.

Nigel this is absolutely delightful and perfect in mono - perfect timing too and beautifully produced.
This is why I don't do weddings, I would just want to take lovely candids like this and not the formal stuff one usually has to do!

Beautifully composed, and taken, just that hint of motion blur and the softness of the piano in the background. A gem of a shot.
I like Sarah's comment above - this is I want to look for at weddings, but I think this sort of image is more important than the formal shots, it's real.

It does not matter if the viewer does not know the circumstances of the image, it is just so totally complete and tells a wonderful story of its own. Completely marvellous.
