A hot and humid day today with the threat of very heavy rain which we were hoping against the odds would hold off for Kirsty & Ben’s wedding at St James’ Church, Thornes and then Hotel St Pierre. However, the forecast was about right for once and we got the first shower as we came out of church after the service! We worked jolly quick to get some group shots as the rain approached and we managed a quick few images of the bridal party but then the rain came and thwarted the shoot as we tried for a few shots of the bride and groom. We stuck it out though and used the heavy tree canopy for shelter until we managed to get to the car and head for Hotel St Pierre. Just as we were leaving the church, however, the rain looked to be passing as quickly as it had come so we headed off to Newmillerdam to try our luck. The bridal party had already gone on ahead to the hotel but a quick phone call sorted that and they met us at the Dam Inn where, unbelievably, we managed to park and headed off down the side of the lake for a few photos. We only had 15mins or so as the threat of rain and the amount of dirt gathering on the wedding dress was causing concern, not for the bride but the groom :¬) So, off we headed up to the hotel for the reception but incredibly we had come away with some outdoor shots which, at 9 o’clock this morning, I really wasn’t expecting to get! Here are a few, still have to download images from the speeches and evening reception but I thought I’d post a few straight away.
