It often seems that things happen to work out just right.

Rain had been forecast for Clare and Richard’s wedding day, but thankfully it held off until after all the outdoor shots had been taken. Just minutes after posing for the full group shot, everyone headed indoors and then the heavens opened.

Torrential rain continued to pour down for the rest of the evening and throughout the night, but it didn’t matter to Clare and Richard. Nothing could dampen their spirits.

They tied the knot at St Margaret’s Church in Great Barr with their reception held at the Compass Suites in Aldridge.

The wedding cake, which Clare made herself, proved to be very popular. In fact, I can vouch that it tasted as good as it looked.

Any wedding that features a song from Anchorman for the first dance is a winner. Clare and Richard took to the dancefloor to the backdrop of Afternoon Delight. And their wedding really was exactly that.

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.
