Andy and Jackie got married last summer at the lovely Woodland Manor Hotel, which is an old house on the outskirts of Bedford.

I love shooting weddings at Woodland Manor Hotel, because the grounds are so pretty and the building is so lovely. The combination of the grand oak staircase indoors, and the rose garden in full bloom was a real winner.

The human pyramid created by all the youngsters is apparently a family tradition since all the cousins were tiny - impressive!
