On Saturday we shot the last wedding of the year – which also happened to be one of the snowiest days of the year!
Guests battled through blizzards to be there, and as you can see, the snow made for some brilliant and unique photos. It did also provide a few problems, for example, the bridal car couldn’t get up the hill to the house. The bride, Victoria, left her mums house and walked through the street followed by an entourage of bridesmaids all in their dresses and wellies! Their neighbours all came out to help where they could and wave them off.
The ceremony took place at All Saints church where a rather nervous looking groom was waiting. Victoria is a primary school teacher, and while they signed the register, a small choir of school children sang some of her favourite carols.
We then headed over to Farnham Castle for their reception, which was beautifully decorated with festive fairy lights and Christmas trees, but Victoria and Kevin were not to stay in the warm for long! They are a really fun-loving couple and braved the freezing temperatures for some stunning photographs at the top of the castle. It really couldn’t have been more beautiful up there with the views of Farnham as a backdrop. However boys will be boys, and the groom and his ushers couldn’t resist taking up the opportunity for a good old fashioned snowball fight!
When Victoria and Kevin look back on this day, I hope that the unique, amazing photos that the snow allowed us to get will far outweigh any stresses that it caused during the day!
