Rain on Jenny & Mark’s wedding day at Bath Abbey
Even with the best planning and with everyone crossing their fingers, sometimes it just rains. It’s what you do about it that counts. We photographed Jenny and Mark’s amazing wedding at Bath Abbey a few weeks ago and true to Bath Abbey’s catchline “where heaven and earth meet”, the heavens opened! I was delighted that everyone simply rallied around the bride and groom and in a resolute display of courage, they pressed on allowing us to capture some beautiful photographs on one of the wettest wedding day’s we’ve ever attended.
We we’re delighted to be approached this week by the National Trust who have asked to use our photographs from a recent wedding at one of their properties. We were of course delighted to help out. Photographs from the wedding and links to the National Trust website will be posted here soon.
We ventured out recently to shoot Rach and Kai at home in Putney, London. They will be travelling down to the West Country for their lovely wedding soon, so it was a great chance to get them in front of the lens before their big day. The shoot became a labour of love for Heidi and myself and we enjoyed several hours wandering the banks of the Thames with them, using some superb opportunities for photography from the Boat Houses on the banks of the river, to Fulham Palace Gardens and of course Craven Cottage (Home of Fulham FC)
The retouching is almost finished, but I couldn’t resist posting just one photograph!
Katie and Tim’s wedding at Leigh Court, Bristol.
An amazing opportunity to shoot some fantastic Wedding photographs in snow decended on us last weekend – literally! Although the Met Office forecast was ‘cold and dry’, there turned out to be plenty of snow at Grittleton House near Chippenham in Wiltshire. Of course, we took full advantage! Although we had a wet weather plan on standby (something we do by routine, just in case), we took the decision with Lisa and Alex, the bride and groom, to shoot the formal photograph of the wedding party and all of the guests outside. It was optional for their guests of course! but I’m delighted to say that almost every one of the 90 or so guests made it outside for the quick photograph. Wedding photographs in snow can be absolutely stunning, as the light reflected from the snow casts a romantic and surreal ambience – coupled with this stunning venue and perfect early evening light is a recipe for beautiful images. In the evening the snow continued to fall and we headed outside once again, this time just taking Lisa and Alex with us for part of their creative wedding shoot. We’ll publish some more lovey ‘snow shots’ here in a week or two when the retouching is done and dusted. In the meantime, here’s one of bride and groom enjoying a moment in the entrance to Grittleton House as the snow falls in the background. Plus a sneeky one taken by Heidi of me running for cover after shooting back towards the main house. For those keen photographers amongst you, I used one of our Nikon D3s for this particular shot, with a 24-70mm lens at f2.8 – auto ISO capped at 3200. It performed beautifully, as always, in the low light of the evening – with superb dynamic range. We can’t can’t wait to send these out to Lisa and Alex once they return from their honeymoon. The next day the snow had gone almost completely!
Just a shot from a fab wedding at Lympne Castle in Kent, with a little retro style wedding photography ‘twist’! More to come soon! Just in case you think we’re ‘going all retro’ on you, don’t panic – it’s just a little taster of the variety which we enjoy so much when photographing weddings! It was a roasting hot day at Lympne Castle with a gentle on-shore breaze and with beautiful long views over the sea from the Castle walls. This shot was taken whilst arranging the ‘formal’ photographs on the terraces outside. It was our first visit to Lympne Castle for wedding photography, and after the marriage ceremony in the Great Hall we polished off the formal photographs and made our way accross the fields to village hall, where the most beautiful vintage themed wedding reception was laid out waiting. We’ve really enjoyed re-touching these photographs, and can’t wait to present them to Tori & Simon once they return from their honeymoon.
