[Wedding] Lots of Sunshine on a Rainy Day, Charlotte & Shaun, Fishlake Mill Doncaster

On Friday 19th August, I embarked on my trip to Doncaster to meet Charlotte at Fishlake Mill to photograph her Wedding. I first met Charlotte & Shaun when they visited Blue Lights Photography with their gorgeous boys Cohen & Logan as Newborn Babies. I've photographed them yearly since so it was lovely to be able to capture another life moment of theirs. Outside the Mill was a crate with everything that had gone on - the important dates and their life moments - within the 13 years that they had been together. They really are Childhood Sweethearts!

When I arrived, Charlotte was getting ready, with hair and makeup underway and parents, bridesmaids and flower girls all around. It was a very calm morning - I don't think anyone expected it least of all Charlotte.

August, being August meant that the forecast was unpredictable. The forecast was rainy all day, however, with an outdoor ceremony, it was a case of what was going to happen! The decision was made! Umbrella's a plenty we were heading outside. It wasn't windy which meant that as long as the registrar was happy to conduct the ceremony - then it could go ahead. And it's what Charlotte wanted. I occasionally meet brides who would be completely and utterly devastated if it rained on their big day - and not only that - would have not got married outside - so I have to take my hat off to Charlotte for not letting a big of rain ruin her plans!

The rain started getting a little heavier before the ceremony was finished, so the main bits were done and the guests were ushered inside the beautifully decorated Marquee, before Charlotte, Shaun and their gorgeous boys walked down the aisle, into an aisle inside the marquee!

Whilst it was still showering with rain, we headed into the Mill to be able to step outside to use the willow trees to offer some small extra coverage. Everyone was a good sport, despite the rocks and sleepers being slippy - and we have to say - WHAT RAIN! ha!

Whilst the rain was still light, we headed to do some couple photographs whilst the guests were inside the marquee before dinner and we had a little break in the rain! Yay!

During the meal there were singing waiters, and then speeches, before it was turnaround for the evening and there was a little bit of sunshine - so I took that to get a few more photographs of the gorgeous happy couple - before doing a few more group shots we were unable to do whilst it was raining.

The evening then erupted with lots of dancing - the groomsmen doing a surprise dance for Charlotte and the first dance. I can guarantee lots of beautiful and happy memories have been made.

Thank you for allowing me to be with you to capture another life moment of yours! Xx
