With the prediction of Thunderstorms and heavy rain throughout the day, a thought that would fill most photographers with dread, It was with excitement that the trip to Berry Head Hotel, a gorgeous location set by the sea, was made. A rain shower or two was passed beneath and all predictions seemed to be on the money. Facebook was a buzz with news of torrential downpours and the clapping of thunder preceded but beautiful forked lightening. What a backdrop for some wedding photo's ???
The main decision of the day was not "I do" but will it be outside or inside, with two layups already made, as is the hotels ability in such circumstances, all eyes were on the sky.
Hurrah, outside it was, the sun was daring to split the overcast skies and put in an appearance on this happiest of days.
The Hotel boasts access to a fine set of rocks onto which even the less mountain goat like can manage to pop onto, so with a rapidly lowering tide, full bellies and some wine having been quaffed a return was made to this little playground and a more ambitious path forged. The Sun had by this point made a full appearance and dashed any hopes of a thunderous background but gave equal magnitude to the shots.
All in all a fantastic day and the most unpredicted of weather, the main danger becoming not being struck by lightening or being drenched in a sudden downpour but Sunburn!!!
And so with the sun lowering in the sky, there was time for the last few shots of the day and of course the last dance an event that had to be cajoled out of the couple but gladly so.
All wrapped up and homeward bound one very satisfied photographer.
