When I went into Cat and Kian’s kitchen, one of the first things I noticed was an OggCamp mug. Although they hadn’t attended that summer’s event, Cat and Kian move in similarly geeky circles to me and the redoubtable Les Pounder had sold them the mug at another event.
There was definitely a geeky theme to the wedding too. Guests were given their own Lego figurine to assemble as favours, and, as Cat and Kian had met after a late night at a Terry Pratchett convention, the tables were named after the Discworld novels. The wedding even had its own Twitter hashtag.
Cat and Kian were married at Bolton School, Lancashire. It was a pleasure to travel up north from Hampshire to photograph their wedding. Bolton School is one of the oldest schools in Lancashire, with grand wooden interiors and stone courtyards. The ceremony and reception were both in the Arts Centre, itself an impressive building with exposed beams. We were able to use the grand cloisters and gardens for photographs.
Cat’s dress had striking red panels and detailed embroidery was topped off with a delicate shawl Cat had knitted herself. Cat and Kian were almost inseparable during our photo session.
