William Cheung’s Best Man

Wadenhoe House, nr Oundle

wedding invite

Will Cheung tied the knot with Joanna Raines today and he’d invited me to be his best man.

We’ve been good friends since he employed me as his technical writer on Practical Photography back in 1991. Over the years we’ve travelled around the world together, eaten in some of the finest restaurants and when our hosts were taking the rest of the European Journalists on the usual tourist excursions we’d wander off together photographing the back streets of the cities.

When he asked me I froze. It’s not that I didn’t feel honoured…more terrified of having to stand up and do the best man speech. Public speaking is a big phobia of mine and I usually avoid it at all costs!

After months of worry the big day arrived and we spent a wonderful day at Wadenhoe House nr Oundle Peterborough.

They were married at 1:30pm.

Good to meet up with old friends and colleagues in the afternoon and evening including my previous bosses Karen Lynch and Richard Hopkins,  work colleagues Roger Payne, Chris Robinson, Ian Fryer and Mike Elliott, and industry friends Graham Armitage and Angela Warnes.

I took a few snap shots using the OM-D in between my minimal duties.

William Cheung Stag Night

Peterborough Beer Festival programme 2012

Will’s stag night was a fairly quiet affair…just the way we both like it…and so it turned out so did his old school friends. We met at Charters on the river Nene. Had a few beers and then crossed over to the Peterborough Beer Festival where we sampled some real ales from the 350 on tap, and then had a go on Dodgems.

The festival was on its last day and many of the breweries had sold out and shut up but there were still plenty of options to choose from.

We finished the night out at the curry house and were surprised the Indian had run out of Pilau Rice…when does that ever happen?

Back to Will’s for a late night game of brag..I didn’t do very well so suggested we played shoot and took over as winner.
