Photo Title: Deep
Photo details: Shot in the grounds of the historic Newark Castle, the wedding of Donna & James was a beautiful affair. This is shot in a little tuck away of the castle and off camera flash was used to balance the natural light and focus the attention on the couple.
This was a Game of Thrones themed wedding and the photo really fit in with what they were after...

Wedding Photography: A Cautionary tale
Last week I had a Saturday off - unheard of in August in the good old days - and I went to a friends Birthday party in Prestwich. It was great to be out with my lovely wife at the weekend rather than waiting for the first dance to start in a green cast grim marquee in Cheshire. If ever I’m out at the weekend all I get is the same question, “ Not working?”. Then I’ll be introduced to someone I don’t know and once they find out I’m a wedding photographer they will invariably tell me they hated their own wedding photographs - funny how you never meet anyone who actually liked their pictures. At this party I met a recently married bride from London who told me a really interesting story which illustrates how even smart, clever couples can end up with some terrible wedding photos. Hopefully this will serve as a cautionary tale for brides to be...

Photo Title: I Just Want To Be Around You!
Photo details: I love this dramatic circular entrance to the Orangery at Hanbury Manor in Hertfordshire. The strong architectural element required only the simplest of pose for the bride and groom, placement being key for the symmetry of the photograph.
The soft tones of the wall compliment the warm tones in the wedding gown, the trees, gates and path add depth.
This picture was 'a must' for Marion & Jamie's wedding album!

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.
