I’ve known Kevin since we both attended Yateley Infants School an awful long time ago. Over the years we went to see bands, camped at festivals and had many trips to the pub where we spent hours talking about photography and teaching – oh and I learnt stuff about Kevin’s other obsessions – fishing, cricket and paint ball! A trip to Kevin’s flat needed nerves of steel as you would be introduced to his pets which included tarantulas, rats and snakes – all of whom had a very special place in his heart. In short he was a fab friend, super interesting guy and inspirational teacher with a lot of cool hobbies but who would marry someone who kept giant hairy spiders in their bedroom?
But then he met the very lovely Rachel! When Kevin introduced us I had the strange sensation of having always known her as it felt so right and natural seeing them together … so I for one was very excited a year ago today when they made each other two of the happiest people in the world!
I hope seeing these photographs again bring back many wonderful memories for you both Kevin and Rachel, It was very special for me to be the wedding photographer at your beautiful Normanton Church Wedding and then at your celebration party back down south a few days later!
