Well it nearly didn’t happen. The outdoor ceremony and not the wedding. Lauren and Matthew got married at the stunning Raithwaite Hall. It makes for the perfect wedding venue. A stones throw to the beach ( ok , maybe a slight exagaration) and the most beautiful gardens you could which for. So when you wake on the morning of a wedding and it’s just a downpour, your heart sinks.

Together, myself, Lauren and probably every other guest just preyed the rain would stop. And it did. It made for a fantastic ceremony. Not only that but it made for sone great photo’s in the grounds which at this time of the year looked fantastic. And to add to all that, the beach is just at the entrance to the venue. Lauren being up for just about anything, that’s were we headed, along with Matthew of course.

Thanks for being such an amazing couple, the food, a great time and allowing me to capture your wedding.

I’m fortunate that I live so close to Raithwaite Hall. Over the years I have lost count how many wedding I have photographed there. If you are planning on getting married at Raithwaite Hall, looking for a photographer and what a relaxed, unobtrusive time then do drop me an email.

Here is another great wedding I had the privilege of photographing at Raithwaite Hall. It’s well worth a look.
