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!
