Most weddings feature some forms of superstitions. So when I received an email from Caroline and Gareth asking me to photograph their wedding on Friday 13th, I was a little surprised.

Thankfully they’re not the superstitious type – nor am I for that matter – and it proved to be a brilliant day.

They tied the knot at Orton Hall Hotel, one of the premier wedding venues in Peterborough. Despite the cloudy forecasts, the sun popped out for a couple of hours after the ceremony, which tied in perfectly for all of the outdoor photos.

Caroline and Gareth really are my kind of couple; they’re cake lovers. They had no less than nine – yes, nine! – wedding cakes, one of which had been made by Gareth. They also have great choice in music and for their first dance they had The Cure’s Friday I’m In Love; the same first-dance song I had at my own wedding!

By that point, the heavens had opened outside, but it mattered little because the sun shone during the main parts of the day.

Friday 13th is clearly very lucky for some.

Here is a selection of shots from the day. If you were a guest at the wedding, the full set of images are available on the galleries page.
