We had back-to-back weddings this weekend. We were at Froyle Park on Friday and then Hambledon Vineyard on Saturday. Here’s a quick first look at one from Andrew and Lisa’s wedding yesterday. It was the Vineyard’s first ever wedding. They put on such a good reception! We look forward to working there again. Check back soon for a look at our first wedding of the year!
This time last week I attended a friends wedding in Anglesey, north Wales. It was unusual to be at a wedding and not be behind the lens (officially). I really enjoyed the experience, being able to sit back and enjoy the day. Of course I couldn’t NOT bring a camera and get any pictures. I was able to get some great shots as one of the guests. It was also interesting observing their photographer and seeing how he worked on the day. Here’s on of my favourites – the newlyweds releasing a pair of white doves at Beaumaris Castle. Huge congratulations to them both! […]
In all the years I’ve been running this photography blog I’ve never showcased one of our wedding album designs. I thought today it’s about time we changed that! Last summer we photographed a gorgeous wedding at Dean Court in Dorset. Danni and Toby had such an eye for detail. There was an abundance for Josh and I to capture on the day. I’m delighted with the album design. I think I’ll have to order a copy for us! Browse through the different spreads and soak in the atmosphere and story of their day.
Back in the summer we purchased a quadcopter drone. It carries a GoPro camera and can take photos or record 4K video at vantage points we could never ordinarily get to. It’s fully insured and is currently being registered with the CAA (UK Civil Aviation Authority). There has been some bad press recently about drones. Unfortunately enthusiasts with little or no common sense or regard for safety have given them a bad name. We have been practising with the drone a lot to get as much experience with the flight controls as possible. We’ve yet to use it commercially. Above […]
In late October we shot Sara and Ben’s wedding at the Larmer Tree Gardens. This is the latest in the year we’ve worked at the Gardens. A mist descended and set in creating a fairy tail look. This shot is a bit different from our blog sneaky peeks. It was taken from the back of the singing theatre looking onto the stage and green beyond. Huge congratulations to them both, and we wish them all the best on the arrival of their first child.
Mid October we shot one of our most unique weddings of the year. The day kicked off with the ceremony at Orleans House – a stunning venue. We had to take the opportunity to photograph the bride and groom here. Everyone was then treated to a two hour boat journey along the Thames – from Twickenham to Putney. It was a fantastic day! They were such a great couple to work with. Congratulations to Nick and Victoria.
Back in mid September we shot Sarah and Richard’s wedding at the Larmer Tree Gardens. It was the penultimate Larmer Tree Wedding of the year! It was another brilliant day for us, you really can’t expect anything less from the venue. This image was taken on the singing theatre. The backdrop makes for a great shot. Big congratulations to Sarah and Richard!
Hey blog followers, it’s Josh! Today I had the oppurtinity of making today’s blog post. I had the task of selecting a sneak peek image from Gary and Amy’s mid September wedding. It was another fantastic day for us at the Lamer Tree Gardens – which is located on the Bournemouth Salisbury Border. Whilst I captured the guests on the green enjoying their drinks and canapés, Ben took Gary and Amy to a new spot we haven’t used before, the shots came out beautifully. Big congratulations to Gary and Amy!
Looking back to the beginning of September now. David and Lesley had their wedding reception at the Fitzleroi Barn in Pulborough, West Sussex. They’d decorated the barn courtyard with half a dozen giant balloons. I couldn’t resist using them in a photo. The image I’ve selected also takes advantage of the beautiful rural setting.
