It was our pleasure to be Wood Hall wedding photographers for Nikki and Sean on the last day of June when you'd think that you would have a decent chance of wall to wall sunshine. However, it continued with the mixed bag of weather we've been having a lot of lately and again, shower dodging was the order of the day, just as it was when we met the couple at Bolton Abbey for their engagement shoot. Sometimes we get lucky and the rain comes when it doesn't matter. This time, it decided to throw it down right at the end of the civil ceremony!
After dinner, we headed outside again and the rain had stopped - briefly. We got some fun pictures with the girls and had just got the bridal party on the grass for some more and it started again. A big tree offered some shelter for Nikki and Sean and the bridesmaids deserve a huge thank you for helping keep them dry whilst we were working and for not caring too much about getting wet themselves.
Back inside to photograph the casino and vodka luge and check timings for the first dance with the band and a very enthusiastic and excited bridesmaid came rushing in to tell us about the spectacular rainbow which had appeared. We had to move fast as these things tend to disappear very quickly. A sunshine and rain mix sometimes has its advantages and wow, what a bonus to be able to capture Nikki and Sean with a whole rainbow behind them!
With the first dance routine covered, as well as the antics around the vodka luge, the last important thing that Nikki wanted us to capture was the sparklers. As Wood Hall don't allow fireworks, this was the next best thing for Nikki. It's a challenge lighting eight sparklers at once but it was such a laugh getting these images.
Mr and Mrs Murphy, your wedding was amazing, even if the weather kept us on our toes. Thank you for allowing us to share it with you.
