My second wedding at The Midland was with my very good friends Andy & Amy. Now it could be said that these two are responsible for for Nicola and I meeting, well more like Andy and my self sharing a love of all things geeky (and more specifically empeg related!) and Amy & Nicola’s shared love of “shopping” in Amsterdam. I first met Andy about 8 years ago, but it would be almost 2 years later that I would meet Amy’s best friend Nicola, who is now my wife 🙂

It was a real pleasure for me to photograph their wedding, especially as I got to go home with a bridesmaid at this one!!! (It was Nicola!!!)

Increasingly guests at wedding are bringing more and more camera gear with them, sometimes it’s even better than mine! I don’t mind as it’s where I started taking pictures at weddings. Here is Uncle David getting his shot.

There were some lovely speeches and touched quite a few people in the room, myself included.

I can’t lay claim to this shot, it was captured by the ever brilliant Neil Matthews (no relation) who helped me out in the evening

Another view of The Midland, and a bit of the Library too 🙂

We all had a fantastic time, and I have to say it is the only wedding I have been to where I ended up in the bride and groom’s room at 2 in the morning. But don’t worry this is not normal practice at Cris Matthews Photography 🙂
