London couple Ross & Grace had a sweet wedding in a church in Grace’s hometown of Darlington in a church just round the corner from her house near Stanhope Park. The church had some beautiful wild flowers in the gardens and a path way with cherry trees for some portraits.
I loved the architecture of Darlington, with it’s victorian houses of rustic brick and quaint little alleys, mews cottages and sash windows. Grace had an amazing veil that Father of The Bride, Kevin, and Bridesmaid, Emily, helped me utilise for a couple of shots. We took some shots in the park on the way from the church and got to the reception venue just before the heavens opened with a summer storm.
We shot this photo just outside the doorway of the reception venue in the car park. Some off camera flash backlighting and exposure settings really help make the rain stand out (and hide the carpark in the background!)
