When a bride & groom board your train, and you have your camera on you, I guess the only kind thing to do is offer to take a few photos for them. So a little #storytime this couple boarded the same train as me to London last Saturday, I was coming back from a shoot in Manchester and I couldn’t resist finding the gossip and asking if they wanted a few photos to remember this part of their wedding day. Turns out they have known each other for over a decade and had just had a lovely intimate wedding reception at Chester Race Course and were on the train to start their honeymoon at @theritzlondon The lighting wasn’t great and the carriage a bit distracting, but think I pulled together some images they will be happy with! What a love story 🥰 . . . #storytime #bride #groom #wedding #weddingphotographer #londonphotographer #blackandwhite #couple #weddingday #weddingtrain #firstclass #love #marriage #happilyeverafter #lovestory #sonya7iii #bealpha #sonyalpha #bealphafemale #potd
2. Paramedics save worried mother from getting a parking fine
A mother rushing her child to A&E was helped by paramedics when they spotted a parking warden approaching her car. The North West Private Ambulance Liaison Services team had seen Sarah Moore hurriedly rushing from her vehicle with her daughter after she cracked her head in an accident at home, so shared a note to let her know they’d taken care of the inspector for her.
- Boy donates his trainers to new friend
Ethan, from New York, donated a pair of his trainers to a new friend he’d made playing basketball when he noticed he wasn’t wearing shoes. The boy explained that he was new to America and didn’t own any, and appeared delighted with the selfless gift.
