Victoria and Chris … married at Boys Hall and dodging the rain {sneak peek}

When I arrived at Victoria’s bridal preparations, after seeing the dress and ooohing and aaahing over the shoes, our discussion quickly turned to the weather forecast. Victoria and Chris’s outdoor ceremony at Boys Hall was scheduled for 3pm … exactly the time of the first onset of rain showers. But Victoria was positive. And definite. The ceremony would be outside and it would not rain.

And she was right …

And this glass washboard that belonged to Victoria’s grandmother made for a fabulous engagement ring shot.Victoria and Chris wedding at Boys Hall by Samantha Jones Photography 02 Leaving the girls to their preparations, I headed over (through a shower of rain) to Boys Hall to meet up with the boys.

I think it was worth it!Victoria and Chris wedding at Boys Hall by Samantha Jones Photography 07

To everyone who helped me on the day, who made my job so fun and enjoyable, thank you. And to Victoria and Chris, who were pretty much perfect … I wish you all the happiness in the world for your future life together and I can’t wait to catch up on your return from honeymoon.  Much love xx
