I’ve known Lee for some years so it was with great anticipation that I agreed to film his wedding. Lee’s great: he’s a musician and one of the coolest guys I’ve ever met, yet still has time for anyone. He’s always been down to earth and refreshingly honest. I’d only met Kate very briefly a few times before the wedding but it was easy to see how Lee fell for her. She’s an incredibly warm and lovely person. When I was talking to her during her morning preparation she was far more worried about everyone having a great day than she was about anything else: a sign of her gentle humility and selflessness.
I should probably mention Lee’s proposal as well. Kate has a background in modelling and was invited along with Lee (who is also helpfully quite easy on the eyes) to model for a photography meetup in Venice. Seeing his opportunity Lee waited until their photographer Lisa Aldersley (who shot on the wedding day too) was about to take a shot and then got down on one knee, timing it perfectly in order to get Kate’s reaction on camera.
The wedding reception was held at the wonderful Meols Hall near Southport.
