So many people ask what will happen if it rains on my wedding day? well, the day goes on! and this one has to be the rainiest wedding day ever that I have photographed! Stuart and Shireen married in Merthyr civic offices then went on to celebrate and party at bunkhouse in a field in Brecon, South Wales. When I arrived at the civic offices I was already soaked though, and the guests were rushing in with their brollies blowing on the wind! we knew we were in for a full day of it, so we embraced the weather and had the most incredible time. The wonderful thing about this wedding is the way Stuart and Shireen’s family and friends were so involved. There was so much detail in the bunkhouse from mismatch bunting, and mismatch plates and cutlery (which looked amazing) doilies and plastic animals ( these were the table names) that were all set up by the family and friends team leading up to the day.
The bouquets were made by Shireen and her bridesmaids the night before and Shireen even baked a chocolate wedding cake that morning. The food was all vegan (it was stunning) there was gin being poured into tea cups and bubbles and glitter galore. The rain continued throughout the day but we still went outside for photographs! The weather was an opportunity to capture a real unique set of images, and I must say it is one of may favourites to date. You can see in everyone’s expressions, particularly the bride and groom just how much fun they were having! one image ( the black and white one of Shireen peaking out of the car) was selected by Nikon to be used in their ‘I am Nikon 2016’ short film which I was super pleased about.
So, as you can see from this set, if it rains and you’re up for it – get outside, even if it’s for a couple of minutes!
