Carolyn and Daniel – another lucky weather wedding couple {sneak peek}

It’s all in the timing. And the timing was just perfect on Carolyn and Daniel’s wedding day. Certainly from a weather point of view … the clouds were building all morning as I joined this gorgeous bride, her family and her fabulous bridesmaids … who giggled and laughed and were just wonderful throughout. With a ceremony at 3pm and torrential rain forecast for … 3pm, things weren’t looking too promising. However, although the sun didn’t blaze down on the newly-weds, it stayed dry at all the right times, rained (torrentially) during the meal and dried up again for the surprise firework display! It’s hard, sometimes, to pick images for a sneak peek. Really hard … so should we have a stunning portrait of the couple in the most perfect gardens I have ever seen …

Or should we have a sneak peek of the bride and her bridesmaids looking beautiful and relaxed …

Or maybe two different perspectives on their first dance (and I know, because I saw Daniel say it, that he loves his wife, very much indeed) …

Or the fact that the fireworks were worth waiting for (despite the keys being locked in the van …) and that I really need to practice more with painting with light (sorry Mike, Danni and Robert for making you run around like crazy things …)

(If you look, very carefully, in the firework image, the bride and groom are standing on the balcony, lit by a couple of outside lights and a flash gun triggered wirelessly from my camera down in the garden with a slow shutter speed to capture the firework display but also to light the bride and groom. Challenge? Bring it on!)

What do you think? Sadly, the weather didn’t allow us to have five minutes in the glorious cornfield behind Mike and Heather’s house … another time, perhaps? I hope that you all had the most wonderful evening and I was delighted, along with my assistant Lauren, to have been able to share the day with you all. Do leave a comment for the happy couple and I can’t wait to share the rest of your images with you! Happy honeymoon! xx
