Last weekend I photographed this wedding for Jennie and Peter which took place at Blake Hall (www.blakehall.co.uk) near Ongar in Essex where I photograph regularly as I am one of their preferred suppliers.

I arrived early and had Jo with me, a keen amateur photographer with me as she wanted to find out more about wedding photography. The weather forecast was for a showery day. I caught up with the bride who was getting ready in the old coach house. The couple were hoping they could have their ceremony outside in the Saddlery, but with showers every 20 minutes it didn’t look promising.

I then met with the groom and groomsmen. Austin the friendly manager at Blake Hall was doing his bit and helping the boys and guests with their flowers. The flowers were by Karen at Rose Blossom (www.roseblossom.co.uk).

I then returned to the bride who was almost finished having her hair done and it was time to put on the dress before heading to the ceremony.

A last minute decision to hold the ceremony in the Saddlery was a good one as the sun came out and showers stayed away for a while.

After the ceremony we went straight round to the gardens for the romantic shoot as the rain was imminent.

My white brollies came in handy, and after a brief shower I took the group photographs as well as lots of candid shots.

It was then time for the meal which was very nice too!

After the speeches I was onhand to take any portraits and family photos for the guests in between more showers.

The evening party started with the cutting of the cake and of course the first dance.

It was good experience for Jo to see how challenging a wet wedding can be and how you can get the best from those situations. I had a great time photographing Jennie and Peter’s wedding day!
