As a wedding photographer, I’m privileged to see many wonderful things on a wedding day, but it was whilst second shooting for my good friend Mr Sam Gibson last year, I documented an event I’ll most probably never see the like of again. The Groom, a strapping, handsome man by the name of Kurt, was to be married to Suzie at the charming venue, Hyde Barn, in Gloucestershire. About an hour before the ceremony, Kurt, along with one of his Ushers, began the process of ribboning the car. Then, disaster struck. Kurt, not heeding the advice from his mum when he was younger, went to tear the ribbon with his teeth. His capped-tooth could not take the strain, and Kurt arose from behind the car door, toothless.

With less than an hour to go before vows were to be exchanged, the atmosphere quickly turned tense, as Kurt and his array of Ushers frantically began the process of finding a dentist that was open, available and a 20 minute car ride away. Thankfully Mrs E Speechley, Dental Surgeon, came to the rescue, tensions were eased, and the process of fixing Kurt’s beaming smile could begin…

Somehow Kurt managed to keep this all a secret, and Suzie was none the wiser…hyde-barn-wedding-photographer-001 hyde-barn-wedding-photographer-002 hyde-barn-wedding-photographer-004 hyde-barn-wedding-photographer-003
