Truro Methodist Church Wedding of Deborah & Dan
16th May, 2012
We had the honour of covering Deborah and Dan's wedding at Truro Methodist Church and The Royal Cornwall Showground Pavilion. Unfortunately for Deborah & Dan, we had out very wettest wedding EVER! We didn't manage to get any photos on Deborah and Dan that weren't undercover, but that didn't dampen their spirits!
We met up with the boys at the church to get a few shots of them before heading off to capture shots of Deborah getting ready. Little did we know about the imminent arrival of the rain, if we had, we probably would have got some outside, but the interior of the church is so beautiful we wanted to make the most of it and get plenty of shots inside, especially as the church means so much to Deborah and Daniel. I'd never been inside the church before and was totally blown away by all the beautiful woodwork inside the church.
I left Tamsyn with the boys and headed of to Tresillian where Deborah was getting ready at her families farm to get shots of the girls. After getting a few of the detail shots and a few of the very cute bridesmaids I noticed the rain starting to drop. So we didn't get any shots of the bridal party leaving and after getting shots of Deborah in her beautiful dress I shot back to the church in Truro.
It was a beautiful ceremony, and so full of love, as Deborah and Dan know the minister personally. It made for a very impressive back drop.
After doing the group photos in the church we headed of to the showground. On route the weather was appalling, so much so that we saw six cars crashed in two separate accidents in the short stretch on the A30 between Truro and Newquay with one of them on its side. And by the time we got to Wadebridge there was about a centimeter on hail down on the ground.
We captured this shot above with them under the canopy at the entrance of the pavilion. They then had the longest wedding breakfast ever, four and a half hours. As we weren't going to get any shots outside we thought we'd try and get as many fun shots inside and suggested doing a carvers arch as Deborah and Dan had roast beef with one guest on each table carving so we got them up to do the below shot. Everyone really enjoyed the experience and got involved.
All in all, everyone had a fantastic day and didn't let the British weather get the better of them, after all, it's the people that make a wedding day, not the weather!
Deborahs first response to the photos was:
Wow, the photos are fantastic, thankyou so much! We just got back from honeymoon yesterday, so had a quick peek at them last night and I've just had another good look through. Its going to be so hard to choose!
