I’m so excited to be blogging this set of images from Molly and Matts amazing day. It wasn’t even 2 months ago when Matt called to ask if I was free, its was short notice, but thank god I was!! It was to be a small and intimate wedding in Derby followed by a reception (aka an enormous party!!) at his folks barn conversion, set amongst the rolling hills of Ashbourne in Derbyshire. It turned out Molly was a New Yorker, and they’d managed to find a small window of opportunity to get her close family over from the US, and having had them both round for a coffee the week before the wedding, I could tell it was going to be a pretty special day, and maybe slightly emotional. Don’t get me wrong, all weddings are special and always emotional, but this one seemed different.
Matt had told me his dad would be lending him his beloved 1952 MG, which instantly gives you street cred in my eyes!! But there was also to be a slightly different take on the evenings entertainment…. it turned out Matt, Molly and the rest of the wedding party were slightly talented musicians and would be providing their own entertainment, so much so, by the end of the night, I’d counted 2 different lead guitarists, 2 bass players, 3 drummers, a trumpeter, and needless to say dozens of different vocalists!! I very much doubt I’ll ever attend a wedding again where the bride and groom are on lead guitar and vox, that really was something else.
So, this is Molly and Matt, and they’re pretty awesome wedding;
