Lexi and Tom’s Duke Chapel wedding went down in the books as being one of the wettest I have documented, both in terms of the weather and the fact I was actually moved to tears during the ceremony for the first time ever. It was Tom’s sister’s singing that got me. It wasn’t till I went back and looked through the pics that I saw it got him too. A truly beautiful moment and one I feel privileged to have shared in and documented.

The day started off pretty much as it continued to go on: grey, rainy and quintessentially English in nature. There is definitely a different vibe to weddings that take place in the rain and I actually find them quite cosy and warm, which sounds a bit counter-intuitive. Maybe it’s all the summer holidays I spent back home taking refuge in a tent with my family while we were battered by the elements. Whatever it is, I really love the mood of a rainy day.

Here are just a few of my faves from Lexi and Tom’s big day. Congrats again guys and best wishes for a long and happy future together!
