The Wedding of Mr & Mrs Einarsson

On a showery day I headed down to Wiltshire to photograph the wedding of Nikki and Magnus.
The reception was held in the charming Manor House hotel in the village of Castle Combe and this is where the couple stayed along with family (Magnus' over from Sweden) and friends before heading off for the wedding ceremony at St Margarets church in nearby Yatton Keynell.

Nikki's hair was styled by hairdresser Acacio da Silva who had flown over from Berlin to be there and her gorgeous dress was designed by Suzanne Neville.

The ceremony was notable because as well as two readings there were also a couple of excellent musical performances.

First of all Nikki's cousin, Rebecca, played Elgar's 'Salut d'Amour' on the violin accompanied by the Bride's brother James on keyboard.

Then, James was again called into action, this time, to play for Magnus' cousin Lars as he sung Ted Gärdestad's 'För Kärlekens Skull'.

The wedding breakfast was an interesting mix of English and Swedish tradition and the newly weds surprised everybody later in the evening with their excellent first dance, which they had prepared for with some secret lessons.

Nikki and Magnus are now in Tanzania where they will be enjoying a weeks Safari followed by a relaxing week on the beach.
