It was a glorious sunny afternoon when we made a trip down the motorway to Castle Donington a couple of weekends ago. The exact same weekend as the Download festival was in town, bringing with it several thousand loud rocker types. One of which was me. But I was there for something altogether more refined, so, fighting the urge to slope off to watch AC-DC, we settled in for a quieter afternoon at the lovely Priest House country hotel with Lauren and Danny, and their families and friends.
Yes, that old Beetle was the Bride's mode of transport. Bless her for that - the shot above just wouldn't be the same without it!
It was a beautiful afternoon with a wonderful setting - the Priest House has been a favourite of ours for many years, and was renovated a few years ago after being flooded by the river it sits on the banks of.
Lauren was a great sport when we asked her to clamber to the top of said bank in order for us to get the best angle of the day for a shot.
