I was really excited to photograph a wedding at the beautiful Lythe Hill Hotel and Spa, which is just outside of Haslemere in the Surrey countryside!
Despite driving through some terrible rain on the way to the venue, the closer I got the clearer the weather became and by the time I arrived it was completely dry; and that meant that the wedding could take place outside at the venue’s Gazebo!
Bridal preparation was next and it was great to catch up with bridal make-up artist Victoria Chainey, who I’ve worked with before on Surrey weddings and does fantastic job!
There was a much laid back feeling to the whole day; and I especially loved that we had incorporated plenty of time into the itinerary for photographs; not only for the traditional group photos and some fun family photographs, but lots of time for some stunning couple portraits.
I particularly enjoy those moments, where my couples are just enjoying each other’s company away from the rest of their guests and almost forget that I’m there; they just seem to always result in the most intimate natural looking photographs of the day!
After the photographs and some really heart-warming and emotional speeches, I left everyone to enjoy their wedding breakfast with the intention of grabbing a sunset shot later in the evening. It was at that point though that the rain came… not just a light shower though; we are talking torrential downpour!
Rather than be upset by this; I quickly took advantage of these new conditions and broke out the umbrellas for some fun photographs in the rain too!!
Please enjoy some photographs of the day!
