Grittenham Barn ~ Wonderful Rainy Day Wedding ~ Kevin & Emma May 2014

Kevin & Emma’s big day at Grittenham Barn last May was very wet…. a complete contrast to my last wedding (see previous blog post) which was bright glorious sunshine all day and hot hot hot.  That’s the thing about the weather you just cannot choose what you get on your day so why let it worry you or spoil anything?  Kevin & Emma definitely didn’t & I certainly never let it phase me either.  I have such great memories of their day, they are such an amazingly happy couple and all their friends and family had me giggling from start to finish!!  For me a wedding is all about the couple and their guests – they are what make it what it is…. not the weather…. and rest assured we can still get lovely photos as long as you bring a brollie or two and possibly even wellies!

I joined Emma getting ready in a beautiful little rented cottage – I have to thank the girls for helping me hang her beautiful dress by the fireplace.  We checked meticulously first if the bricks were dirty or not and one of her lovely bridesmaids balanced on a chair to hang it up high – all a bit of a palava but worth it for the shot I think!  Then I left them a bit earlier to get to the barn and capture the boys and guests arriving.  I love Grittenham such a beautiful rustic venue and a blank canvas you can really stamp your mark on.  The ceremony was such fun, we all sang “When I’m 64!” and Emma & Kevin had personal vows for each other which were so beautiful…. not a dry eye in the room!  There was a little break in the rain just after the ceremony so everyone was able to have drinks and throw confetti outside and we did a couple of group shots and a magician wowed the crowds (and me)! with his tricks.  Then the heavens opened again and everyone went indoors for the delicious meal and emotional speeches.  I snuck out again with Emma & Kevin for a few couple’s portraits and then we were gate crashed by their friends for some crazy singing in the rain shots!!  My sides ached – we all laughed so much….  I stayed on into the evening capturing the first dance and some boogie woogie pics – the dance floor was packed and rightfully so with Oomphf singing and playing their hearts out.  Amazing…. anyway enough waffle – here are some pics!
