I met Rena and Yianni a short time ago, we’re very excited and delighted to be their Derbyshire wedding photographers. The engagement shoot was the start of their magical wedding day journey, next is going to be their engagement party, followed by their wedding day at The Dome in Buxton, which is one of he most dramatic spaces in Great Britain, built in 1779 by the 5th Duke of Devonshire.
As I left our studio in Nottingham to meet them at The Dome, the weather was really fine, as I approached Buxton the cartoon typical cloud hanging over a town seemed to appear above it, and sure enough as I passed the ‘welcome to Buxton’ road sign the rain began to fall, with a passion!
Armed with umbrellas upon meeting up with Rena and Yianni we headed for the pretty park that nestles nicely just down the road from the Dome. I captured many shots to try and hide the fact it was raining cats and dogs, and Rena was really keen not to have umbrellas in all the shots, so with lots of praise for doing so well and lots of giggles we had fun with it. I did want to get some images of the downpour as it was so heavy – it made me think that it was no wonder that Buxton was famous for its water.
As we all had to drive home in the same direction, I mentioned to Rena and Yianni that I would drive in front and if I were to pull in then they could follow for a photo opportunity. We did this on two occasions, both with a little bump as I’d spot a suited field or dry stone wall.
On the last stop we were joined by the field of cows who quickly decided to walk across the field to get on the shot and have a good look at what we were up to.
Rena and Yianni, I had so much that day, I’m so excited for your engagement party and wedding day, you’re a wonderful couple and such great fun! See you soon, Becky x
