Back in October I was aproached by DJ Kaptin Kirk who is part of a trio on The Techover a House slot on Afro Disiac Live..

They are being sponsored by the Mack and Todd brand and needed some photographs for Web and magazine use. Time and date was arranged with the DJ's, and I had my trusty assistant Julie along with me to make sure the shoot went smoothly.

Wedding of Leah and Neil Streete | St Marys West Moors - Summer 2011 | Photography by Robert Whetton

Back in November 2010 Leah asked Rachel if we'd shoot her wedding. As Leah had been a warden at our wedding, how could we not? The wedding was for the 30th of July so we met up the month before to chat about the day and timings of the big day.

Rachel wanted to cover Leah in the morning with me covering Neil.

When I turned up at the flat, I found Neil and his groomsmen outside making their button holes! Neil had been growing all the flowers in preperation for the wedding and was just finishing when I arrived.

I couldn't resist it and had to use the left over flowers for the ring shots.

Meanwhile Rachel was with Leah and her family preparing for the day.

The boys were pretty relaxed in the morning with the chaos going on all around them.

I love the organ at St Marys, the shape and colours are great.

Leah's friends from The Royal School of Church Music in Salisbury were kind enough to supply the music and choir (which Leah also is part of).

After the speeches we were in for a treat, some of Leah's friends are Morris Dancers and they put on a small display which also included Leah and Neil.

After the cutting of the cake, we whisked Lean and Neil off to Knowlton Church for some couples shots. I also grabbed some frames with my Mamiya RB67 which was pretty exciting!

This image was captured with my Mamiya RB67 medium format film camera. While I am happy with the outcome, I did warn Leah and Neil that they might not come out as expected.. I still have much to learn when it comes to shooting with this beast. The scanned film comes in at just over 800 megabytes per shot.

After the couple shots we hot tailed it back to the reception where the disco was in full swing, ready for the first dance from the bride and groom.
