Photo Title: Wedding Sparklers
Photo details: Sparklers are a must at your wedding! And who wouldn't like to add a little bit of magic at the end of a wedding night. This photo was taken at Alex and Grace's wedding last year at Shillingstone House in Dorset. Capturing the magic of sparklers is easy but you have to remember this can only be so easily done when you have large, "giant" sparklers at ready. They create a lot of beautiful light and last for longer.
About the photographer: Kasia at Peppermint Love Photography is one of the top wedding photographers in Dorset, known for her natural and romantic style.

Bride and Groom: Sheery and Jeremy
Wedding venue: King's Place – The venue was great. We wanted a flexible space that could be used for the ceremony, reception, dinner area and dance floor. We also wanted an outdoor area in case the weather was good. There was also some great places to take pictures. . Venue Website
Photographer: Minna Rossi Photography. Our photographer was fantastic and we could not recommend her more highly. She went above and beyond to get to know us and help make us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She got on really well with all our other suppliers include the venue staff, videographer and band and took time to get to know them beforehand. We were so excited to receive the pictures and video and both our photographer and videographer captured the day perfectly.

Bride and Groom: Emma and Ollie
Wedding venue: Gildings Barn has the traditional rustic style of an old-fashioned barn - cosy and welcoming in the winter with plenty of room outdoors for summer weddings. Despite its olde-worlde feel, the main barn dates from the 1990s and was made from timber from trees that fell in the "Great Storm" of 1987. Venue Website
Photographer: Chris Mann has been photographing weddings through the UK and overseas for the last 15 years, so has plenty of experience, and a relaxed natural style that fitted well with this couple's approach.
It's hard work photographing weddings
“Do I really need to provide my wedding photographer with a meal?” YES! I have the proof that wedding photographers need to take on the same calories as a Tour de France cyclist or they will faint during the speeches.
When I turned 50 a few years ago I realised I was in a bit of trouble. The good years had been a bit too good to me and photographing 2 - 3 weddings a week had suddenly become really tough. I was over-weight and out of condition. Back to back Summer weddings in the heat, with all the stress and logistical nightmares, had become so exhausting that I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to continue into my 50’s unless I restricted my workload to one wedding a week. Unfortunately this just wouldn’t work financially and so I decided to get back in shape to cope with the workload. I joined the gym and went on a diet. It all went OK for the first six months but as anyone who has ever tried this will tell you - it gets really really boring! On the verge of giving up I did what every professional photographer would do and bought a gadget.
