Vintage Rainy Orange Tree House Wedding: Rachael & Louis

It was a slightly damp morning that we set off for Rachel’s Mums house for Rachael and Louis’s Vintage Rainy Orange Tree House wedding,  We started the day by catch all the little details, from Rachael’s shoes and jewelry, through to the dress that was designed by Rachael herself and made locally. We got some great shots of the girls getting their hair and makeup finished off in between. Soon enough the lovely flowers from Abbey Florist arrived and we nipped outside with them to get these great shots, while we were out in still from the website “This Is Not My Cat” a neighborhood cat decided that it liked the look of Rachael’s mums stairs and nipped in! much to the amusement of everyone there.

Soon Enough it was time for us to head off to Orange Tree House and meet up with Louis and his lads. Rachael had told us that Louis had bought his suit himself and that it was a little out of the ordinary, so we were intrigued on the way down and can say we were totally in favor in fact, I have to say I totally love it! We started off by getting a few shots of the inside of Orange Tree House and off all the little details that the guys had arranged. We then got a few shots with the lads before the guests started to arrive.

Soon enough the ladies arrived Rachael arriving in her dads camper!! We got some shots of the girls before it was time to get the ceremony underway. The Ceremony was performed by local registrar Beverly McCullough, its always nice to work with Beverly she is always good fun.

Following the Ceremony everyone headed out into the conservatory just and the Red Bus Company arrived! We couldn’t resist getting on the bus for some shots especially as it was still raining we made full use of the great interior of the bus for these great images. The rain eased off for a little while and we headed out to the garden area at Orange Tree. There was lots of dashing in and out with Brollies for these shots but Rachael and Louis were total gems while we got these and didn’t mind the rain a bit.
