I think I probably have to take the blame really. Or some of the blame at least. You see, a couple of week ago I wrote a blog post about how to survive a wet wedding (you can see it here). I was fairly nonchalant about the whole thing, stating that it hardly ever rains all day, and that really a little bit of drizzle wasn’t too much of a problem. Ha.
The post was pretty popular, and was widely read and shared, popping up on a number of other blogs. Clearly the gods of wet weddings must be fans of my writing, because they obviously read the piece. Every word. Once they finished laughing, they decided to put my theories to the test. In short, the weather for Saturday’s wedding was consistent. It rained almost incessantly.
It was all ok though, I listened to my own advice and Jo and Pete’s beautiful wedding at Erasmus Darwin House in Lichfield was lovely from start to finish. We even managed to sneak outside for a few photos while the weather gods were briefly looking the other way. It was a fantastic day, and I’m really looking forward to sharing the photos with the new Mr and Mrs Whitmore. In the meantime here are a couple of sneaky previews from the day.
Sunday was another day of work, with a bit of sport on in the background. I heard England’s collapse in the third ODI against New Zealand, and listened to England struggle to overcome Slovenia in their Euro 2016 qualifier. A couple of brilliant goals from Jack Wilshere helped the national side out of a potentially embarrassing hole.
Eleanor kept me sustained throughout it all by feeding me ‘Super Salad’ from her kitchen playset. Apparently Super Salad includes chicken, steak, milk and an entire lettuce. If I’m honest I was a bit disappointed about the lettuce part. Anna was pretty brilliant too, providing actual (non-plastic) sustenance in the form of a homemade meat and potato pie. Yum.
Thanks to my wonderful support team, I was able to complete the editing of Hannah and Peter’s Breadsall Priory wedding. I know they’ve just got back from honeymoon, so that’s pretty good timing. Here’s one from their wedding: Coming up on the blog this week, I’ve got an article on what your wedding photographer should be asking you, an update on how my clients receive their wedding photos, and a beautiful wintery wedding at Ringwood Hall.
Have a good week!
