It seems ages since I met Rachel & Ben at their pre-wedding shoot at Nostell Priory earlier in the summer. However, they are immortalised at Nostell as the National Trust used one of my pictures of the couple for the meet and greet hut as you arrive at the parkland. Watch out for Rachel, Ben and buster the dog on the side of the hut. Today though, was the big day and we arrived at Rachel’s parents’ house for the prep shots before heading off to the very picturesque Thornhill parish church for the wedding. Such a shame the vicar was a tyrant and refused to allow any photos at all inside the church! I never understand why they are like that :¬\
The skies went very heavy and we had a small amount of light drizzle just prior to the ceremony, but we managed to do both the formals and some bride and groom shots at the church before heading up to Ainley Top and the Cedar Court Hotel. How different it was up there – being very exposed, the wind whistled around us as we shot a few more images! Ben and Rachel were brave about it and I think we scored some nice images. Here is a small selection, more to come, but its time to charge the batteries and polish the lenses for tomorrow’s wedding at Hotel St Pierre before heading off on a photo assignment in Bavaria for a few days.
