We met up with Chris and Kayleigh on a scorching day at the end of July to discuss their Wedding Photography and meet Chris. I had met Kayleigh at another wedding, Susanna and Jack’s, as Kayleigh being a fabulous make up artist had been chosen by Susanna to do her make up. I booked the wedding having already met Kayleigh without a client meet but wanted to see the location and meet with Chris. So, on this scorching day we wandered around Chris’s Dads garden and was told about all the work they had done for the photos and we got an idea of where we would do group shots and where the marquee would be. We talked about the families mint green TVR and photos with the top down. Together we decided on a beautiful village green just down the road for some private Portraits. Fast forward onto the Wedding day a week later and we woke to a very heavy rain forecast. It was actually the day when we had loads of flash flooding. The M11 was like a river on the way home and it took us three hours to travel an hour. We were lucky to get back though as it was eventually closed. We had some fantastic moments in the morning like when Chris surprised Kayleigh with a most gorgeous pair of Louboutins. The shock on her face was hilarious. Kayleigh did her own make up and she looked fabulous. Her flowers were beautifully chosen and put together by Chloe Harbour who has also created Susanna’s flowers. Chris didn’t want any getting ready shots and Doug met up with him at the Church. It was during the service the heavens opened, lucky they say on a wedding day as when you tie the knot if it is wet it is hard to come undone. One of my most moving moments and favourite photos was the minutes with her Dad just before they embarked down the aisle together. He was so very proud. Lovely chap. Apart from thirty minutes in the afternoon when we were able to get outside for the group shots it rained and rained. Did it spoil the atmosphere, NO IT DIDN’T. They got on with what the day was all about, getting married with all your closest family and friends around. Everyone had a wonderful time, we got to do the group shots as planned and still went to the village green although with umbrellas. The shots with the sports car were without the top down but still fab. This is what you have to do if it rains on your day. As long as you keep smiling and remember the important thing, that you are in fact getting married, it will show in the pictures. Well done for just getting on with it and best wishes for a wonderful future.
Come back soon for some more of Kayleigh’s work when I do my yearly make up artist spotlight..
