Today I had another great day! This time the pressure was off me a little as I was sharing the responsibility for photographing Jade and Lewis’s wedding with my friend and fellow photographer, Lisa Scott. It was a lovely day, with the weather being kind to us. I started my wedding photography at the groom’s house while Lisa met the bride at Ansty hall where she was getting ready. I moved on to photograph Lewis, his best man and ushers at the church while Lisa stayed with Jade and her bridesmaids until their arrival at the church. During the service I was at the back of the church while Lisa was positioned at the front. Afterwards, we split the group shots at the church and at Ansty hall. Anyway, enough of the words …… I’ll let my photos do the talking now!! These are all photographs that I took today ……
We originally met Beth and Steve at a wedding that we photographed last year. Steve was an Usher at Lara and Martin’s wedding at the Charlecote pheasant hotel near Stratford upon Avon. The ushers at that wedding were really well organised and pro active so I was delighted when Steve contacted me to say that he and Beth were getting married this year and wanted to book me to do their wedding photography. They get married in a few weeks time in the Cotswolds and today was the day that we met up to discuss their wedding photographs in detail, to view the locations and to have a fun photo shoot session to get them used to being the main attractions in-front of the camera … As you can see Beth took the photo shoot very seriously 😀
Here goes with a small selection of the photos I took today, I think they’ll love the images 🙂
Stone Barn (above) near to Burford in the Cotswolds is a new location for us and so I wanted to visit it to see what it is like and to plan my photographs. I was surprised and delighted at how lovely the location turned out to be. I can see why they chose it. There are so many opportunities to get great shots, especially if you are a lover of the countryside and interesting rustic buildings.
We also spent a good hour or so inside the lovely St Mary’s church in Chipping Norton in the Cotswolds. The church is lovely inside and out and we’ve planned that I’ll have a little bit of a surprise up my sleeve when it comes to a congregation group shot after the marriage service!
I’ll be posting a sample of my wedding photos of Beth and Steve’s actual wedding day on this blog later on in August. I’m sure that it will be a great day. They are a lovely couple; very photogenic and very relaxed in front of the camera. Gary will be second-shooting for me and we are looking forward to capturing the story of their day with a nice mixture of formal and relaxed informal shots at both venues. Watch this space!!
With a busy August ahead, July is chocked full of pre wedding meetings & a number of pre-wedding photoshoots.
This weekend was the turn of Becki & Gaz.
I first meet Becki & Gaz around a year ago so it was great to catch up properly, stroll around Ettington Chase hotel & discuss their photographic wish list.
As a wonderful keep-sake, Becki & Gaz were keen to have one of the images taken from this photo shoot as a centrepiece of a photo mount so that their friends & families can sign it on their wedding day … I’ll look forward to seeing which image they choose 🙂
Becki & Gaz were a great couple to photograph & I’m very much looking to their wedding date later on in August this year !
I was really excited about being asked to do the photography at Laura and Paddy’s wedding. Firstly, they are a fun couple; easy going with a great sense of humour and open to ideas and suggestions about their photography on the day. Secondly, Warwick house in Southam is a relatively new wedding venue and it was the first time that I’d photographed a weddng there, and thirdly, Laura and Patrick had opted to have their wedding ceremony outside! …… We were hoping for good weather!
The day arrived, we were there early, and thanks to the wonderful staff at warwick house, everything was looking lovely. An added bonus was a sunny day, if a little windy at times. We had been asked to photograph the day until the start of the sit-down meal. Here’s a taster of their day …..
I really enjoyed the day and I think the wedding photos show that Laura and Patrick and their guests did too. For any couples getting married in the warwickshire area who want the option of an outside wedding I would definitely recommend adding Warwick house in Southam to your list of venues to explore….. and now, of course, I’d love to speak to any couples who are getting married at Warwick house and are looking for a fun, friendly, enthusiastic wedding photographer.
