Often when photographing an event (in this case a wedding) you observe the situation unfolding. A good photographer understands people and in his or her mind is thinking two or three steps ahead ready for that perfect photo. On this occasion I was photographing a wedding at a converted barn in East Sussex (Blackstock Farm Barn in Hellingly, East Sussex, UK). I was busy taking some informal shots of guests chatting inside the barn when I spotted it had started raining outside. I knew some of the wedding guests would be sheltering from the rain so I decided to keep an eye on them from a doorway. As I watched I spotted the groom was also with them and as I lifted my camera to my eye I thought to myself "All I need now is for him (The Groom) to make a run for it through the rain back into the barn, that would make a nice photo." And as luck or good judgement would have it thats exactly what he did. But what I didn't expect was the fun dance he would do as he splashed through the puddles. Just another reason why I love being a professional wedding photographer. It's moments like this that make all the hard work worth it.
