It’s always a risky affair planning a wedding in the middle of summer in the KZN midlands, as December afternoons usually involve a big thunderstorm. On the morning of Sarah and Shaun’s Netherwood wedding, the air was thick and heavy with an unbearable heat but just across the view huge cumulonimbus clouds gathered in a rather threatening manner. I expected the worst, a torrential downpour of massive proportions, but it never really happened. The enormous clouds only let down a gentle shower and only after the ceremony had happened. Most photographers really fear rain on a wedding day, and it certainly makes things challenging but on the flip side there is something quite magical about rainy wedding photos.
Sarah and Shaun have been together for a very long time and a bit of rain wasn’t going to dampen their spirits. They were so excited to celebrate their union with their family and friends and celebrate they did!
Thanks so much for picking me … Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness and health! Sarah you just have the most gorgeous smile and it was so special to see you beaming like that! I hope that you will always be able to look back at your photographs and rekindle the joy of your wedding day.
