Single image – Wedding in Menorca

For this reason I usually arrive a couple of hours before the ceremony and don’t leave until well after the dancing has started. I had the great pleasure of photographing a…

Joanna didn’t have too far to walk to her ceremony as she got ready in the room directly above at Rushton Hall in Northamptonshire.
