We defied the rain this weekend to descend upon Notting Hill's 49th annual carnival. 

The Great British Weather didn't dampen our spirits as we watched revellers sashay down Notting Hill's usually demure streets. 

Umbrellas joined sequins, drums and headresses for London's biggest street party; we'll be back!
