Sam & Nathan's wet and wonderful Melton Estate wedding

Written by Angela Penn on April 7th, 2017.      0 comments


I know most couples pray for big blue sunshine filled skies on their wedding day but rain can make for some awesome, epic photos so as long as the couple are up for getting a bit soaked, then I'm in rain-drenched heaven! I'm talking about the creative shots after the ceremony, of course!  Ideally, it would be dry for the ceremony and the group photos but once everyone is nicely tucked up inside the venue, drink in hand, you really want the skies to open up and for some serious drizzle to happen.  Well, as you will see from these images, the skies did not disappoint!

There's always a bit of Youtubing when it's time to put the buttonholes on

Ok so here's the difference some lighting can make.  The top image was where my speedlight didn't fire. I was click WAY too fast for it to keep up!  And you can SO see the difference a bit of backlighting makes - it picks up every wee rain drop.  I LOVES ME SOME BACKLIGHTING!
