Another image from my Behind the Lens series.

This was from about 3 years ago in the middle of a typical British summer. The day started off bright and then during the ceremony the weather closed in. It went very dark. Every time the vicar spoke during the vows, there was a huge clap of thunder as the rain bucketed down.

It rained so hard that after the service that the pathway back up to the road was under 6 inches of water! So I photographed some of the groups on the altar to try and get ahead.

The groomsmen then went beyond the call of duty and removed their shoes and socks, then borrowed some trestle tables from the community hall opposite to make a pontoon style path out of the church for the guests. The bride was lent a pair of wellies by a friend and all was good.

When we arrived at the reception, the sky was brilliant blue and the sun shone the rest of the day. The amazing caterers Super Event, had to deal with the marquee flooding up thought the flooring. It was all hands to the pumps and they managed to save the day and produce an amazing meal for the guests.

The image was shot on my Nikon D3s with a 24-70 2.8 lens at around 1600iso.
