I met David and Joanne when I did the photos for the websites of their hog roast company and butcher’s shop in Denby Dale and today I was pleased to be shooting their wedding. Despite a dry and sunny start to the day, the forecast was correct for once and the heavens opened on Joanne and David’s wedding at Cannon Hall! We started the day with the bridal preps at the fabulous farmhouse where Joanne grew up and it was so nice to have loads of space to work with instead of the usual confines of a small hotel room. The house was full of people getting ready including Joanne’s sister and her family who had flown in from Canada for the wedding but the busy atmosphere made for some great images. We just managed a few bridal shots before the showers started but they lulled us into a false sense of excitement as they passed over and bright sun followed. By the time we reached Cannon Hall, the rain had begun and as we came out after the ceremony, it was just torrential! We did all the formals in the library at the museum before dashing to the cars to head back to Joanne and David’s farm at Upper Cumberworth for the reception in a marquee. Getting to the marquee was a feat in itself with the ground resembling the battlefield at the Somme! Everywhere was a quagmire but it didn’t dampen the party spirit and a good time was had by all. We even managed a few shots with the amazing old Buick at the farm in a 10 minute window between the storms. After leaving Joanne and David as they sat down to home reared roast beef, we headed south on the M1 to the next venue at Ettington Park, Alderminster in almost monsoon conditions!
