At this time of year we generally hope for a bright crisp autumnal day at best and can usually manage to get outside for a few group photos and Bride and Groom portraits. However, as we were getting closer to Justine and Mark’s wedding day the forecast was getting worse day by day. We were now expecting a forceful wind, heavy rain and there were flood warnings galore !!
The rain had set in over night and it wasn’t going to stop so the decision that everything would have to be done inside was made. The stop off at the beach on route to The Chine after the ceremony was cancelled and the back up plan to do everything inside the church was implemented.
Justine’s preparations all went to plan and allowed us time with her for some Bridal portraits, she looked stunning. Such a lovely smile, she was so happy and looking forward to the day ahead. Over at the church Mark was looking forward to the arrival of his Bride.
Justine and Mark made their vows, exchanged rings and signed the register before they made their way to the church door but instead of leading their guests outside made their way back into church for some family photos.
As the couple had wanted a photo of everyone, which we were originally going to do at The Chine, we managed to get everyone at the front of the church and we took it from the gallery in the church. Not easy moving that number of people around in a small area but with the co-operation of the guests it didn’t take too long. After the family photos all of the guests made their way to the Chine Hotel while we stayed in the church for some Bride and Groom portraits. Unfortunately we couldn’t get outside for any photos and we thank Reverend Canon Chris Tebbutt for allowing us to remain in the church to capture some lovely images of the Bride and Groom.
Over at The Chine Hotel Justine and Mark rejoined their guests for drinks and the rest of the days celebrations.
We wish Justine and Mark all the very best for their future. A lovely couple that are well suited and very happy together.
We are busy preparing their images from the day so while we are doing this we hope you enjoy these few images. All of the photos from the day will be available to view online as soon as we have finished editing and we have seen Justine and Mark. The following link will take you directly to their online gallery within our client area. You will need the password provided in order to access the gallery.
In the meantime please leave any comments or words of congratulations for the couple by clicking on ‘leave a comment’ after the last image.
