A few weeks off and one never knows what might happen. A gentle ease back into the wedding photographer world would have been welcome. However, the weather had other ideas. Torrential downpours, alarming gusts of wind and even a bit of hail did little to make the transition easy. But I’m pleased to say the elements did little to dampen (get it) the results and in many ways helped contribute to some great opportunities. With a house in Epsom, a church in Guildford and a venue in Leatherhead we were certain to get soaked. Somehow, though, the rain gods seemed to take pity on us and every time we ventured out we stayed dry. Sadly the same wasn’t tue for all the guests. Some braved monsoon-like conditions to get from the car park to the church. Troopers…the lot!
It was my first time at St Saviour’s in Guildford. A wonderful building just inside Guildford town centre. Keeping up with the firsts it was also my first time at Cherkley Court near Leatherhead. As a wedding photographer you dream of certain venues. Light, space, period features…this place has the lot. I can’t tell you how much I would love to go back.
So..enough banging on. Time to get on with Nicky and Steve at Cherkley Court, St Saviour’s and Surrey.
Clean. Simple. Toast.

Remember yesterday? Yes, the day of rain, wind and hail with biblical proportions? Broken umbrellas and soggy feet? OK. We’ve established that….so how did we get this? Talk about being in the right place at the right time!
