The rain was lashing down as I headed to the Village Hotel, Leeds to shoot Joanne’s bridal preps and it hadn’t eased up much as we set off to Leeds Civic Hall for the the groom shots with Charles, but fortunately it had stopped as we arrived there and we were able to get out into Millenium Square for a few shots. The rain stayed away as Joanne arrived but came back with a heavy shower just as the ceremony ended forcing us to do the group shots indoors. However, it did let up enough for us to get the bridal party out on the imposing frontage for 20 mins; I decided to do most of the photos at the civic hall because at least we had some shelter and I guessed it would be wild and exposed up at the cricket ground and I was banking on good evening sunlight in the late afternoon. I wasn’t disappointed! The evening sunlight around 7pm was gorgeous and allowed us to shoot Charles and Joanne on the outfield with the stadium as a backdrop before heading up into the executive suite for the evening reception.
