Rainy wedding

Sarah & Toby | A fun wedding at the Little Theatre in Bath

Where to even begin with this wedding!

Sarah and Toby are the best kind of people. They are warm, hilarious and just the most fun to be around. I honestly don’t know if I have ever laughed as much photographing a wedding! The couple have a bunch of great friends too and I felt so welcomed throughout the day by everyone, it was really lovely.

Sarah got ready at her childhood home with her best friend, parents and adorable nieces. The two girls were so cute and really mischievous! I absolutely loved Sarah’s choice of wedding car - her and her family love classic minis and they couldn’t resist the opportunity to drive into Bath in two of them (see below!).

The couple chose to get married at the Little Theatre in Bath. I LOVE this venue, Russell and I even looked into getting married here ourselves. Basically couples get married on the stage in front of their friends and family as the “audience” and it’s pretty magical. The theatre is from the 1930s and the decor is almost identical to when it first opened. The lighting in the theatre is dark and atmospheric so we talked beforehand about whether or not they would like me to use flash. I wouldn’t normally use flash during a wedding ceremony unless the venue is super dark and in that case I would always check with the couple first. I explained that by not using flash the images would be slightly grainy but they loved the idea of that as the result would be more in keeping with the vibe of the venue.

The ceremony was really beautiful. Sarah and Toby’s friend made them an incredible 8-bit video to play shortly before they exchanged rings. After the ceremony everyone ate popcorn and drank beer while avoiding the rain outside.

As it was raining, Sarah and Toby hopped into a mini and drove to their reception venue - Bath Function Rooms, while the rest of their guests (and me!) walked to the venue through the streets of Bath. I loved this part of the day as all the guests had funky umbrellas with colourful outfits and we caused quite a stir as we walked among the shoppers and commuters!

The wedding reception was super fun and included lovely (and hilarious!) speeches and a brilliant quiz. Family photographs were a blast too as Sarah and Toby kept jumping in front of each other’s families, it was so funny. The best part for me though was when Sarah, Toby and I went for a little walk while they turned the room around for dancing. We walked past Sainsburys (v entertaining for shoppers!) and went to take zombie portraits by the river (dream couple or what!). On the way to the river we bumped into a group of uni students who were on their way back from the shop with cucumber (?) and prosecco! They shared their prosecco with Sarah and Toby and it was such a laugh :)

We returned to Bath Function Rooms for their first dance to Frightened Rabbit ‘Old, Old Fashioned’ 💛😭 and an evening full of dancing.

This wedding was awesome, Sarah and Toby - you’re the best 🤩
