Jess & Rahul chose the Old Barn at The Milky Way for their wedding in April. I was to shoot a wedding the following weekend there too, we'll get to that another day.
We first met on a wet and windy day in Westward Ho! in February for a chat and pre wedding shoot. Jess especially wasn't looking forward to having her photos taken but just meeting and chatting helped her to relax about the day. We did manage to find a dry spot for a few photos but it was literally a few. The day arrived and I met Rahul at the venue with his family and a few close friends all struggling with pinning the flowers on, I did my usual lesson of showing how to do one and then letting them get on with the rest. It was lovely to spend more time with the groom for a change, I shot some great moments. With ceremony done and a very smiley couple we moved back into the garden for drinks and photos.
I have so many great memories of this wedding, the colours, the joy, the meeting of two cultures and a first for me, a well known TV actress was in attendance, cousin to the Bride. It really was an amazing day topped off with the most amazing light at sunset and some great dancing, congrats Mr & Mrs Patel
