Rachel and Michael married at All Saints on a gale force windy day {sneak peek}

You know sometimes how you look at the weather report and can’t quite believe what you are seeing?  Here in the UK we have had a glorious spell of weather leading up to Rachel and Michael’s celebrations at All Saints in Whitstable. But then it changed. Forecasts were for heavy rain, extremely strong winds and pretty rotten all round.

But the rain gods smiled on this fabulous couple. A mere sprinkle of rain after their exit from church … although, I must say, on arrival at Brogdale, their reception venue, it was a touch windy … but this detracted in no way from the smiles and joy that I saw throughout their day from them both and their families and friends.

One of the best “dad reactions” that I’ve seen this year!

Vicar Simon Tillotson has requested this shot in the past when I photographed Lydia and Peter’s wedding four years ago …

Grandpa was definitely on the list of “must get” shots and, at 99 years of old, was incredibly dashing!

We took a few minutes for some shots in the orchards, accompanied by venue co-ordinator Sara …

Tears flowed freely during the emotional speeches and all too soon it was time for the first dance … which Rachel and Michael excelled as and had obviously put in loads of practice!

Thanks to everyone who made my day so enjoyable, to the bridesmaids for being amazing, to everyone for smiling, to the ushers and best man, Russell, who helped during portraits and for light holding.

And to the newlyweds, for having me along for an amazing day and for being such a lovely couple who are obviously so right for each other and who I wish much love and many adventures in their married life to come xxx
