Sometimes it rains! Like really rains!


Sometimes it rains when it's supposed to be summer!


But every time it's still possible to have a fantastic wedding day!

And Michael & Rachel had the best day considering the absolutely terrible weather outside.


The day started in Bourne, Lincolnshire for Rachel's prep.


Rachel's hair & makeup was prepared by My Lab, Bourne.

We braved the rain and went for a small drive in Max the split screen camper across Greetham Valley.


What a beautiful location with the classic split screen camper from Arrive Vintage.

The rain stopped and we quickly got rid of the umbrella.

The rain stopped again in the early evening and we all rushed outside to get the big group shot.

And I'm sure it then started to rain again!

Thank goodness for a couple that aren't afraid to go out in the rain!


I do love a rainy wedding because there's an extra hint of romance in the wedding photos under my white umbrella.


Thank you Rachel & Michael for choosing me to photograph your day together x
