Tom & JP’s Wedding – by Mark. This image makes me smile every time I see it. The Registrar was conducting the ceremony in her normal professional manner when suddenly she burst into laughter … it was so unexpected that I nearly missed it! I am unsure as to what happened but it would appear in the following exposures that Tom (left) had said something.
Natalie & Luke’s Wedding – by Mark. The final few minutes waiting for the bride are quite intense for the groom and most if they were not nervous before become nervous at this stage. Natalie is moments away from entering the room, Luke is somewhere else in his own thoughts.
Kirsten & Rob’s Wedding – by Mark. It is not often you get the opportunity to photograph the entrance of the bride from above and so close. I wanted to capture a ‘clean’ image without anyone else apart from Kirsten on the arm of her brother. I only had the time to take 2 exposures as they passed below me, the 2nd exposure gave me just the image I had wished for – after the wedding it was nice to hear from Kirsten who said this was one of her favourite images from the day.
Kimberley & Lee’s Wedding – by Marianne. The last part of the bride’s getting ready is the putting on of the veil. Marianne captured this lovely moment when Kimberley’s mum puts the same veil she used at her own wedding on Kimberley, her maid of honour in the background was also taken by the moment.
Natalie & Luke’s Wedding – by Marianne. Natalie and her mum’s journey to the wedding ceremony was both joyful and sad and there were times of laughter and of reflection.
Kimberley & Lee’s Wedding – by Marianne. The time had arrived for Kimberley to meet up with her dad and to walk on his arm to where Lee was waiting for the ceremony to begin. As she took a deep breath and composed herself her bridesmaids realised they had forgotten the bouquets and started running back up the stairs to fetch them. A lovely captured moment.
Wedding Photography Review 2014
Glancing Back at 2014
It is that time of year again to reflect over the year that has been and the year that lies ahead. We photographed some wonderful weddings during 2014 and we thought we would pick 3 images each that we especially liked … we soon found it to be a difficult task as we had quite a few favourites each but in the end we came down to these choices as shown above.
We have been members of the National Trust for a few years and in the beginning of 2014 we also became members of English Heritage – between them they protect historic places and green spaces all over England, as a rough guide English Heritage is good for castles and the countryside whilst the National Trust is best for stately homes & gardens and places of natural beauty, i.e. The Lake District.
The most memorable English Heritage visit we had during 2014 was to Queen Victoria’s home Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, and the most memorable National Trust visit was to Godrevy Point on Cornwall’s north coast where we watched Grey Seals basking at Mutton Cove beach.
Looking Forward to 2015
We have some wonderful weddings lined up in 2015, our first is in France in February. We will be visiting 8 counties around the UK as well as 5 star hotels in London, we also have 2 weddings in the magnificent St Paul’s Cathedral.
We love! the diversity in what we do and we are also booked for Indian & Jewish weddings, our smallest wedding is for some 15 guests and are largest is for 600. We also look forward to catching up with some of our past wedding couples when we meet them for their newborn & family photography.
New for 2015 During the year a lot has been happening behind the scenes on our website which is now complete and for 2015 we have a new super friendly system for our couples to view and choose their images, we also have a new range of exciting contemporary products that can now be easily purchased online.
For our newborn & family photography we have a new range of books available.
We are really looking forward to a Summer family holiday on the Greek Island of Mykonos where we are booked into a Kite Surfing school which will be great fun … the diet starts officially today!
Cheers for 2015! all is good.
