Pip and George got married at the very beautiful Hampstead Parish church in London before moving to St Stephen’s (another converted church which is now the most beautiful multi purpose venue) for their reception. As you can see it rained, and rained and then rained some more before the skies finally cleared and the sun shone briefly in the early evening. I actually don’t mind the rain so much, it can make for some interesting photographs – reflections, people running to keep dry, huddling under umbrellas – and people generally quite like something to chat about and a bit of bad weather is great for raising English spirits!
Despite the rain the day was fantastic fun and I had a great time photographing everyone enjoying themselves. I have included some of my favourite moments below – I think my personal favourite is the one of Pip and George giggling together at something during the ceremony (7th one down). I think it was possibly during a hymn, it was the type of image that was “hard won” from my point of view – I sort of knew that it was inevitably going to happen and it was the result of a good few minutes of patient waiting on my part. The glance between them only lasted for a second or so but it was well worth the wait – I love George’s crazy fun expression!
