I love shooting weddings. If you’d asked me 5 years ago I would have said that wedding photography was for old men with tripods who couldn’t make a living doing other kinds of photography! How things change! I get to hang out with great people on the biggest day of their lives surrounded by the people they care about the most, all having a great time. It’s such a privilege being asked to document such an important occasion for people and we never take that responsibility for granted. And along the way we’ve made some lasting friendships. Oh, and did I mention we almost always go home with cake?!
One of our favourite weddings this year has to be Gemma and Matt’s wedding at Albright Hussey Manor Hotel near Shrewsbury. The whole day was great fun and Gemma & Matt rocked it big time when we headed out for some photos around the venue. I could have blogged a ton of images here but here’s just a selection from their day…
Gemma looked stunning in her dream dress…
Kids at the wedding = Great images..
The weather held out long enough for them to make full use of the grounds for the ceremony.
Why is it that the groom always ends up holding the bouquet?!
Mirror: Check. Gorgeous light: Check. Stunning bride: Check.
SO many brides have seen these pictures and said they’re stealing this idea…
The speeches included a few “ginger” jokes.
After dinner, we escaped away from the venue for a short walk and came back with some of my favourite wedding images EVER! People ask me how I get the sky to look like it does but it was nothing to do with me. If you believe in a higher power you can thank him… or her!
This image is now a huge bevel edge print on our studio wall. You’re famous Gemma!
