Huge congrats to Laure & Rhys whose wedding I photographed at the weekend. I ask every couple to describe their wedding day in three words. Why? Because it helps me understand what's important about your day and what your photos should reflect. Laure & Rhys said these three words summed up their day: Franglais, friends and family. And it delivered on all fronts!
Their day was filled with love and laughter with their family and friends. Despite heavy rain during parts of the day, we managed to get to the Castle for photos both during the afternoon on the Long Walk and under a floodlit castle in the evening.
I've been photographing weddings for nearly a decade now and know how to handle rain (I have to say 2023 has been the wettest wedding season I've experienced!!). We'll be in touch in advance to agree contingency plans - this might be popping on wellies and bringing brollies and heading out in it, it might mean juggling timings on your day to ensure we get the shots you'd like during any dry spells, or it could be finding some indoor locations for your photos. The Windsor Guildhall is a great rainy day venue - not only are the interiors stunning, but you also have the pillared corn exchange when you exit, so you can be outside, but still undercover! If you're happy to head out in the rain, then investing in a clear umbrella that will look good in your photos is a good idea, something like this is perfect,
Back to Rhys & Laure's wedding day... they had a double cake cutting - the French side being a selection of cheese, and the British being an amazing cake made by Rhys's mum! Then they danced the night away to French jazz band Oh La La!. Wishing them both every happiness together!
