I had met Kirsty prior to her wedding when she came for a makeup trial with me, before her big day.
I awoke to torrential rain (well it was January) and prepared ready for what I thought was going to be a predominantly indoor wedding.
As I drove to The Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere, the clouds parted and beautiful winter sun shone on the Lakeland fells.
I arrived at 12 noon and the girls were ready, hair done by the very talented Gareth from Aqua hair salon in Windermere, so everyone was relaxed and Kirsty was ready for me to apply her wedding make up.
The ceremony was conducted at the hotel by Kendal registrars.
Time to brave outside. I have to say in 24 years of photographing weddings, this was one of the coldest I have ever experienced. Complete 10 ou of 10 to the Bride and Groom for looking so relaxed on their pictures. Goosepimples all round.
The wedding co ordinater Rachael, kindly drove us down to the lake where we were able to get some beautiful shots and very muddy shoes!!
