No man who is a wedding photographer can every claim they don't know how important shoes are to a lady.
When that lady is a bride they take on almost mythical importance and woe betide the wedding photographer who doesn't ensure they get their 5 minutes of fame in the wedding photographs.
For Clare and Deans wedding everything had been planned to within an inch of its life and the shoes were very high on the agenda. I was under no pressure then.
So I thank the sun for its cooperation in creating some fantastic shadows to bring drama to this shot.
Shoes - I bow before you.
