Poor Rachel had been fretting about the weather forecast for today and I have to say it was forecast to be very heavy rain, but she needn’t have worried – I told her at the pre-wedding meeting I don’t do wet weather weddings and I was proven correct! Despite a few spots of rain, the downpours held off and we did all the photos outside in the grounds of this spectacular wedding venue and by early evening the light was superb and we were still outside having a laugh with the friends shots. The whole wedding was a blast and a pleasure to shoot and there were some very talented singers and musicians numbered among the guests because Nick & Rachel met at the Royal Academy of Music and both are also talented singers; Nick’s even had a top 10 hit but don’t ask me what it was – he doesn’t do death metal so I would never have heard it ;¬)
After the wedding breakfast, everyone trooped outside to enjoy the evening and shoot the friends and relatives before gathering in the bar outside the Oulton Suite where there was a collection of instruments for the musicians and singers to have a chill-out jamming session and I have to say they were all excellent. After the first dance and before the band, Nick suprised Rachel by taking to the stage and singing her favourite song and he’s not bad at singing I have to admit! I have so many photos to go at its hard to choose what to blog, but here are some stills for the iPhone users denied the full rich internet experience and small slideshow for everyone else :¬)
