James and Nicola - 1st Oct 2010 - Long Newton Church, Tetbury / Kingscote Barn
I'd had James and Nicola's wedding on my books for well over 18 months, which at the time of booking always seems such a long wait. Well fast fwd to October 2010 and it's finally come around. I'm presuming when Nicola booked she hadn't got in mind the rather wet day that it turned out to be, none the less Nicola is one chipper (can I say that) bride, and a small weather upset wasn't about to spoil her wedding day (albeit I believe she had a mild paddy the day before!)
Bridal preps took place at her dad's house in Tetbury. Make-up was by the lovely Elle (www.ellehitchens.webs.com) who was possibly the most excited Make-Up artists I've ever seen when Nicola appeared in her wedding dress and genuine vintage veil.
Nice unusual wedding details, wheat rather than flowers - I liked these.
Still raining whilst at Kingscote Barn. At this point I'm enjoying standing out in the rain, whilst these two look cute in the doorway!
Finally around 6pm it did in fact STOP raining - wahoooooo! We nipped out and enjoyed some great light for a few portraits. In fact, quite a few portraits, especially seeing as we'd already shot some earlier in the day.
