Katie and Shaun – what can I say? Two of the most genuine people I have ever met. I first met Katie at a wedding fair near Hitchin. She walked in with her glorious red hair and I thought to myself how lucky I would be if I was able to photograph her wedding day. A few weeks later Katie & Shaun were booked in to get married at the Lodge Farm B&B in July. We headed for our engagement shoot on Brighton Beach on a very sunny and warm day. I eased them in to it but by the end of the session we were all soaked. This was a really memorable shoot for me and one that I’ll never forget. You can see their engagement shoot here.
Their wedding was held at the Lodge Farm B&B near Hitchin – a fabulous and unique venue with its variety of locations. This includes the secret garden outdoor ceremony area, a HUGE marquee and the main house where bridal prep can take place. The staff and manager at Lodge Farm B&B were fantastic throughout the day. Even though it was a rainy day they still managed to have their outdoor ceremony that they’d been dreaming of. This was all down to the flexibility of the venue which was fantastic.
Katie & Shaun’s wedding day had a traditional but relaxed and romantic feel with daisies, a sprinkle of rain, and an awesome BBQ their day was perfect. If you’re worried about rain on your own wedding day, there’s no need to be as long as you prepare. I brought Katie & Shaun a couple of cute umbrella’s and managed to do most of the group shots in the dry spells. Rain can be romantic and atmospheric as long as you embrace it. Finally as long as you’re happy to head out into the rain, so am I!
Congratulations Katie & Shaun, I know that you will have a very long and happy life together. Lots of love from me as you start your next adventures together.
