Rachel & Chris’s Wintery UK Wedding – Sansom Photography

Hi Everyone,

Our first post on Best of Wedding Photography is a wedding we covered in March this year, and what a March it has been!

I’ve been to a few festivals over the years, some warm summer days and others with nothing but relentless rain and wind. There’s always that element of luck, even in summer. Rachel and Chris planned on a festival themed spring wedding but the good old British weather had other plans. On the morning of their March wedding the covering of snow was thick enough to send us into a hedge on the way to Wood Hall (Good thing we’d set off at 5.30 in the morning and had a shovel!) but we arrived in plenty of time where Rachel and her bridesmaids were making an early start.

I always think one of the biggest testaments of anyone’s character is how they handle bad weather on their wedding day. I can fully understand anyone’s disappointment, especially when the day’s been so long in the planning. But both Chris and Rachel didn’t let the bitter cold spoil their day for a second, even the festival flags went up as planned, everyone made it through the snow and the rest of the day went off without a hitch.

We have some fantastic weddings, but the best thing is always the couples we meet. I think it’s safe to say that Chris and Rachel’s wedding didn’t turn out exactly how they imagined, but as we left after the dancing had started it was hard to imagine them changing anything about their day. The cold weather might have put a stop to the outdoor activities, but it did seem to bring everyone together and ultimately isn’t that something everyone wants for their wedding day?
