It rained... so what?

On Saturday I was in South East London to photograph the wedding of Hannah and Kevin. We managed to get into the church just before, as predicted, the heavens opened!

The ceremony was held at the wonderfully named Christ's Chapel of Alleyn's College of God's Gift in Dulwich (if you know the area it adjoins the Dulwich Picture Gallery).

Then it was onto the reception at Eltham Palace, a really unique venue and a 'must see' for anybody into Art Deco. The rain hammered down but the guests were happy enough inside, enjoying the decor and the Champagne.

Once everybody had been seated for the Wedding Breakfast I managed to 'borrow' the Bride and Groom for a couple of photos while they relaxed in the Palace's beautiful reception area.

The catering was handled with military precision by Jalapeno under the command of Charles Howard. Their multi-national team of Chefs and 'Butlers' made sure that everybody (including Photographers!) wanted for nothing.
