A little over a year ago, we photographed a very memorable wedding! What made it so remarkable was that on the day we had the worst snowfall in 30 years. We battled through the snow to get there, and although it was quite challanging at the time, we are so glad to have been a part of it!
We arrived at Victoria’s house where tensions were running high, the phone hadn’t stopped ringing all morning, and everyone was starting to panic. All the neighbours rallied together, clearing the paths and doing everything they could to help. The bridal car couldn’t quite make it up the hill, and so the bride and her bridemaids stuck on their wellies and went for it! It was a lovely sight to see them all walking down the road arm in arm with their neighbours cheering them on – it was a brilliant atmosphere.
When they finally arrived at the church, Victoria walked down the aisle in tears of joy and relief, to her wonderful husband-to-be, Kevin. Some guests had been unable to get there, and the choir of school children had dwindled to four, but their teachers all pitched in and it was a lovely touch to a very moving ceremony.
The next challenge was was get to Farnham Castle where they were holding their reception, and we knew that there was quite a steep hill to get the car up. We were greeted by a bagpiper outside, and when we went through the doors it was beautifully decorated with festive Christmas trees. Kevin and Victoria were great sports and braved the freezing temperatures for some stunning photos at the top of the castle overlooking Farnham.
It all goes to show that although things don’t always go exactly to plan at weddings, it doesn’t have to take away from being the most amazing day of your life. The day proved very challenging for us as photographers for many reasons, but all the planning and effort on the day made it worth it to have some really one off photos.
