Back in August I photographed this wedding for Rachel and Dzinja which took place at Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire (www.zsl.org/zsl-whipsnade-zoo/). I had good friend and fellow photographer Steve with me as 2nd photographer.
Unfortunately it was forecast a very wet summers day so I knew we would have to work around the elements and use our wet weather contingency plan.
Even though the weather was wet, it didn’t dampen the mood, the steel band kept everyone smiling.
I stepped aside to let this little professional photographer get his shot.
We then went for a quick visit to the giraffe enclosure, luckily for us the wet weather meant we could get up close and personal as the giraffes were all inside keeping dry.
We then went back to the Phoenix suite for the drinks reception and I took the group photographs inside on the dance floor.
There was a brief dry spell so we all rushed out to the “bird steps” to grab a big group photograph before heading back for the meal and the speeches.
After the meal we all headed down to Whipsnade Central, the Zoo’s very own private railway as the train is one of the best ways to see the animals. As you can see the rain had cleared and the sun was even breaking through.
We headed through a short tunnel and the steam made for a romantic shot.
We took a quick tour of the zoo for some romantic photographs.
We had rain, we had sunshine, but most of all we had great fun capturing Rachel and Dzinja’s special day and it was a very unique setting.
