Tor and Steve met about 10 years ago when they were both studying in York. These days their work as lawyers keeps them really busy so they quite like spending nights at home snuggling in front of the fire, and playing with their cat Betty. They love Betty. I’ve met her, she’s pretty epic. I tried to photograph her once but she kept hiding. I thought I was going to have the same problem with Steve. Steve doesn’t particularly like being photographed. In fact this is probably one of Tor’s dislikes – the fact that he does not like being in photos so it looks like Tor is on holiday by herself. Steve loves that Tor is herself – she takes him places and they do things he wouldn’t do if they were not together. Steve thinks Tor is very funny. Tor thinks that Steve is funny too. Tor likes Steve’s singing. Sometimes Tor wishes Steve was a bit less kind and friendly to everyone so she wouldn’t look so bad in comparison.

Together they like listening to music, and going to festivals, walking & camping, drinking and eating with friends and family. They brought their love of the great outdoors to their wedding, planning an outdoor humanist ceremony, which reflects how they choose to live, and also because there were so many ways that the ceremony could be tailored to them. They included songs and readings, personal vows, their friend played the guitar and they wanted all their guests to be able to drink throughout if they wanted to. They followed it with a party in a tipi on the edge of Sherwood Forest, with an autumny/woodland kind of feel.

Tor and Steve have been to about a million weddings so knew straight away that they wanted theirs to be fun, relaxed and informal, with loads of really great people there. They ended up making life difficult for themselves by choosing to tailor pretty much every element of the day, from playlists to vows but one of the lessons they’d learnt from previous weddings is the more personal the day the better. It meant the day would be completely them even though it meant loads more work than they had bargained for. Music is a big thing for them, and they went straight for a stompy punky kind of folky band that they’d seen before and loved, with playlists chosen by them for in between the band’s sets. The band were called Jonny Kowalski and The Sexy Weirdos. They were fricking awesome, the best band I’ve ever heard at a wedding by miles. Food was pie and mash, Tor’s favourite, with a home made cake buffet for pudding and a cheese table for the evening. They also had fire pits, marshmallow toasting, robin hood fancy dress and sparklers too. It was a massive party for all of their friends and family with a really personal and meaningful ceremony but they we’re really looking forward to spending some proper time together afterwards not talking about weddings on their honeymoon in a cottage on the Isle of Skye.

‘Thanks so much for the photos!  We are really happy with them – they give a really good overview of the day, and there are some lovely little private moments that you have managed to capture which is really special. Had a lovely evening on Sunday looking through them all.’ Tor and Steve
