This summer has seen more rain than anything else, it seems and it was torrential on the morning of the day Sam and Chris got married at Fanhams Hall Hotel in Ware but as usual, I had a backup plan should the weather not clear. Fanhams is a beautiful venue but it also has large interior spaces where, if the worst comes to the worst, photographs can be taken with lots of light and more importantly, out of the weather! Luckily, just as the ceremony in the fabulous Great Hall came to an emotional end, the clouds parted for long enough to get all the group shots in the bag.
Once the rain began again, I advised Sam and Chris that we would get their portraits later in the day and so it was that after the meal and the speeches, the sun finally broke through and gave us the most beautiful golden evening light - and away we went!
Sam and Chris chose to have a modern black and white colour scheme and a Rat Pack inspired look for the boys, complete with dickie-bows! The last shot of the couple shown here (taken just after their first dance) is one they particularly wanted - the Frank Sinatra-tie-undone-jacket-over-the-shoulder look!
