First wedding of the season and it was a wet one, yet Dean and Rachel are two of the warmest and most loving people you could meet. Rachel is a good friend of mine, we met 12 years ago and it has been amazing watching her grow into one of the kindest, most hardworking and inspiring women I know. When I was training for my first marathon and a 20 mile run was on the plan – she was the one crazy enough to get up at 5am and run with me.
Groom Dean is an ultra marathoner and triathlete, recently taking part in the UK’s toughest and most brutal ultra marathon; the Spine Race.
Celebrations took place in a marquee at the brides parents’ gorgeous home, this gave a calm, friendly feel to the whole day. A delicious hog roast was served to guests following the emotional ceremony followed by a rather yummy 99 ice cream!
This adventure seeking couple were always going to be a delight to photograph and were never going to let a few drops of rain ruin the party.
Special thanks to my assistant Richard from RJM Photography, who assisted me as I had my baby son 4 weeks earlier! Here are their fab 5 of the day …..
