Elly & Joe's wedding was a pleasure to be a part of. We were hired to film a video, but as that is edited and polished we thought we would share some of these photos we took of the day. We hope you enjoy them!
20th June 2015. Elly & Joe's wedding day. It was raining. After a week of beautiful weather it looked like Elly & Joe had been incredibly unfortunate as we woke up to see angry clouds above us. We were staying in Ashby-de-la-zouche (not in France by the way - near Loughborough!) at a friends flat which was only about a 10 minute drive from the church.
It was a very pretty old village church that greeted us when we arrived. It looked like we were the first to get there and so we started setting up our equipment still grumbling about the weather. As usual, everything was a blur from that moment. The guests arrive, the bride arrives, the marriage happens, the sermon is given and then the newly wed couple leave. It always strikes us that it all happens so quickly!
We rushed to get some shots in front of the church and we were expecting to be met by umbrellas and raincoats. Instead we exited the church and entered into the most glorious sunshine that couldn't have been better timed. This led to a wonderful atmosphere of friends and family milling around chatting and laughing in the sun (as you'll see below)
The weather kept up it's good behaviour on into the reception and evening, and apart from some brief moments of spitting rain it was a beautiful day.
We actually prefer filming on days when there is a bit of cloud - and the sky at this wedding was stunning.
Elly & Joe, thanks for letting us be a part of your day. It was a privilege and a pleasure. We look forward to editing the video together for you...watch this space.
