I think its amazing how we end up marrying the people that we do. I am sure that when Minori arrived as a teenager from Japan to study Ballet, she never expected that she would meet the man of her dreams, marry him and live in England! I have met the two of them a few times over the last few years, I photographed Marks brothers wedding to Claire 18 months ago and have seen them at subsequent weddings of their friends. They are such a lovely couple and seem so happy together. Mark said in his speech that Minori just understood him and that really shows! Minori looked fantastic in her western wedding dress but when she changed just before dinner into her Kimono, she got such a reaction as she surprised all her guests. There were few dry eyes during the speeches. Minori’s father who had flown in with her mother and other family members, had learnt his speech in English. It was delivered so well. Knowing the crowd from other weddings, I knew the dancing would be great. The band got everyone up very early and it showed no sign of stopping by the time I left. I hope you enjoy the photographs below. Feel free to leave your comments or well wishes for Mark and Minori.
