The run up to Tabitha and Michael's wedding was wet to say the least! I had been keeping an eye on the weather in the run up to their big day with a little trepidation. The weather is the one thing that you have no control of but because they were getting married at the beautiful Stourhead Gardens, I was keeping my fingers crossed (as I think we all were) that it would be dry.
Amazingly, the wet weather abated just before their ceremony and we were even treated to some blue skies! Not that it would have mattered. The ceremony took place inside the intimate Temple of Apollo with their son taking centre stage whilst Tabitha and Michael said their vows and exchanged rings. The weather held off just long enough for the drinks reception and the formal photos. However, by the time we had made it back down the hill (delayed in part by the mini-bus getting stuck in the mud which had been caused by the previous week of rain!) our luck ran out. Thankfully we managed to get a group shot of everyone on the iconic bridge but the torrential downpour meant that umbrellas were essential!
With the rain not due to ease for the foreseeable future, we all made our way back to Chippenham (Tabitha and Michael in a beautiful vintage Bedford) where we were all surprised the find that it was dry, the sun making a reappearance once again!
Below are just a few of my favourite photos from the day. The full set of images can be found here (the password can be obtained from Tabitha or Michael).
