The last person to get married at Hovingham Hall was HRH The Dutchess of Kent, and the photographer on that occasion was one Cecil Beaton, so it was quite an honour to follow in the great man’s footsteps last weekend whilst photographing Sophie & Jamies’ wedding. Returning home to Hovingham, Sophie & James brought a little bit of India with them as they put on a surprise sumptuous Indian feast for all their guests to enjoy. I doubt the Riding School at Hovingham Hall had ever smelt so good! Saying that, the Ushers lunch held across the village green smelt pretty good too. Huge thanks and gratitude must go to Marie- Noele who showed me round her wonderful home on the morning of the wedding and let me interrupt the local lunching shooting party to set up my lights.
