We know Rupert & Fliss from weddings that we photograph at Gate Street Barn and Surrey. Rupert is the proprietor and wine expert from Taurus Wines. So, as they also know a great deal about weddings, we were delighted when they chose us to shoot their wedding in the picturesque village of Compton in Surrey.
Before the ceremony, Rupert told Richard that he was concerned about the forecast of storms in the afternoon. In an attempt to keep things positive, Richard said how, a few years ago, we shot a wedding where there was a storm and nobody got wet, the light after the storm was fantastic and we even got a photo of a rainbow. After the ceremony, Fliss also mentioned the storm. Rupert said “Don’t worry, if there is a storm Richard has promised to get a photo of a rainbow!”
Oh that’s just brilliant, thought Richard. Getting photos of rainbows to order is no easy thing.
There was indeed a storm but it couldn’t have come at a better time as all were inside the marquee enjoying the excellent food provided by Kalm Kitchen. As you can see from the photos below, the rain absolutely poured down. However, just after the storm an usher rushed up to Richard to say that a full rainbow had appeared. Rupert & Fliss immediately responded to our request to come out for some photos and Richard was able to get the shots you see below of the couple framed by the perfect arch of a rainbow.
We do do our best to deliver!
