Sophie & Oliver | Wedding Day | The Hawkhills
Well, what a season so far! The trend of me having to dry off my clothes mid-wedding is still going very strong, but that wasn’t going to put off Sophie and Oliver on their big day.
I joined Sophie with her mum and bridesmaids at the family home to capture their morning preparations before heading to their beautiful local church, St Oswalds, in Farnham, near Knaresborough. This was where Sophie’s parents got married, and it seemed only fitting for Sophie to follow in their footsteps.
I met Oliver and his groomsmen at the church ahead of Sophie’s arrival, and whilst they took shelter inside, I headed outside along with Robyn and Jon from Mulhern Media, as we all huddled under an umbrella that was clearly designed for just one small child. Needless to say, it did very little to stop us from getting soaked through.
Sophie soon arrived and emerged from a beautiful, classic Rolls Royce, ready for the mad dash from the car to the church, as Dad perfectly held her white umbrella above her, helping Sophie to make it to the church as dry as possible during the heavy downpour.
I jumped ahead of Sophie and made my way down the aisle, dripping from head to toe, and joined Oliver at the front. I quickly cleaned my lenses that were fully fogged up, just in time to catch a radiant Sophie walking down the aisle, with her arm linked in with Dad’s.
After the ceremony we made our way across to The Hawkhills for the reception. Sophie and Oliver had planned to have their afternoon celebrations outside, but the rain won and we undertook Plan B to take everything indoors. Fortunately we managed to get a break in the weather to enjoy some time to capture photos around the stunning grounds at The Hawkhills.
