The day itself was an absolute scorcher!!! A very very happy fun day, but at times a little under tow of emotion as Jo lost her Dad Richard recently. As promised, and as I know them really well, the speeches were belters. Jonny’s brothers ripping into him in style, at times I was struggling to focus the cameras as I was giggling so much. Oh and also the photographer pinched the grooms speech and making him sweat a little hahaha!!!
