The weather has certainly turned. The day started with not only heavy rain but with gale force winds and was very grey and dull.
We met Rachael and the girls at the hairdressers with Bernice from Fathoms Deep styling their hair. Everyone was in good spirits and determined not to let the weather put a downer on the day.
Once finished at the salon we went on to meet Lyn & Ken (Rachael’s parents) at their house to photograph the dress, shoes, flowers and so on.The girls soon started to arrive back at the house to have their make-up done.
Rachael was ready first and we got some lovely shots of her in the conservatory, she was joined shortly after by Lucy, Aleisha and Alfie, her bridesmaids and pageboy. Aleisha was so excited and couldn’t stop smiling and looked so pretty in her dress which was identical to Rachaels and Alfie looked so cute in his suit!
The wedding was in The Garrison Church of St.George The Martyr, Allenby Barracks, Bovington Camp where we met the guys, luckily the rain had stopped and we managed to get outside with them for a few shots although it was still very windy.
It is poignant to add that many of the guests had been or knew of someone serving in Afghanistan and our thoughts go out to them and wish that they return home safely.
After the ceremony the group photos were taken inside the church and once the guests had left we stayed in the church with the newly married couple.
The couple then left to join their guests in the Sergeants mess for the wedding breakfast.
The disco was enjoyed by some very young guests before the first dance during which Rachael sang every word of their chosen song to Emy.
We wish Rachael and Emy all the very best for their future together.
