We'd had a chat with the Leeds registrars beforehand and they were fantastic, even suggesting that due to the lighting conditions in the civil ceremony room, that we may need to use flash and that they had no problem with us doing so. A sincere thank you to them for being so accommodating.
Becky, Craig and all their guests came out to glorious sunshine and sweltering temperatures and the Champagne and Peroni must have gone down well! We often wait until early evening during hot summer wedding days for certain photographs, particularly the more romantic and artistic images, because the couple are more relaxed, the light is softer, there is more time and it's a bit cooler. However, when it comes to the family groups, it's best to get these in the bag as early as possible, so thanks guys for being good sports and for putting up with the heat!
The wedding car chauffeur who delivered Craig to the venue couldn't stay until after the ceremony, so he had arranged with the couple to return in the early evening, after the wedding breakfast and speeches, so that they could have some photographs with the spectacular Rolls Royce Phantom.
As Leeds wedding photographers, it seems wrong to complain about the weather when you have such a glorious day, having to deal so often with the wet stuff, but we were glad when the sun had finally set and we could get some lovely bridal portraits and couple shots in an archway at the front of the venue. We know that Becky and Craig were glad it had cooled down too! When everyone could be persuaded to come back inside, the marquee was packed with a huge number of family and friends, ready to watch Mr and Mrs Fawcett dance their first dance to Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls.
