Back on home turf today for Lee & Becki’s wedding at Waterton Park Hotel Wakefield but with threatening skies and a poor forecast, we were always going to be shower dodging! Becki and her bridesmaids got ready for the wedding in the gamekeeper’s cottage which was a new twist for me with most brides getting ready in the hall itself. The cottage, however, was a really great secluded place and had it not been hammering it down just at the wrong moment, we would have been able to shoot some super bridal portraits in the garden without fear of being seen by the groom or other guests. As it happens, I went out in the torrential rain but it was worth it to get some rainy window shots :¬) The heavy rain meant that the walk up to the hotel for the ceremony was a tricky and wet one, dodging puddles and torrents of water running down the main drive but we made it ok and headed into a stifling ceremony room only a few minutes late. Light rain forced the wedding party straight into the hall for drinks but we soon managed to get out again as the rain eased off and we even had sun briefly for some of the group shots. Eventually we were rained off again but did managed to get out in the early evening to shoot against some intense storm skies which are always a bonus. Here are a few shots from the day.
