Although the rain came in for this beautiful Lake District wedding that didn’t dampen the spirits of Simon and Kelly as they dodged between the showers. Rockcliffe Church with its tall spire was where everyone was gathering on Friday morning as the showers blew in. Although guests were hurrying inside to shelter from them, when the time for the wedding ceremony arrived the sun had come out, as if it had been ordered. It shone in through the stain glass windows of the church as the vows were being said and as the registers were signed the promise of a better afternoon beckoned us outside. Confetti flew as the new Mr and Mrs set off for Armathwaite Hall, a spectacular wedding venue on the shores of Bassenthwaite with amazing views straight down the lake. On arrival though, another downpour caught us out and we were stranded for ten minutes under an avenue of lime trees in the rear gardens. Bridesmaids, ushers, flower girls, and the videographer. The trees were offering shelter at first but gradually the rain was dripping through. In the end we all made a run for it back to the shelter of the main hall. This may have been a bit of a nightmare at the time but looking back it made for some unique and fun memories and video. In fact some of the best captures are from moments like these when things happen unexpectedly. When working in the moment everything is portrayed naturally and gives films such a nostalgic and fun feel, compared to something that is too posed. As the afternoon wore on the sun came out fully and the day finished with a vivid sunset whilst the wedding party was just getting started in the large function rooms of Armathwaite Hall. Photographer Kerry Clark was working alongside me and together we enjoyed capturing Simon and Kelly’s day.
