Now we are off to the church.


This church is so small it only takes about 50 people and you can only photograph down the middle or over the heads of people.

And then it was time for the real first dance to an amazing live band from I think London?

I always use off camera flash on the first dance pictures where possible as it gives you those all important shadows and lit areas, it just works for BW images.
