Helen and Gareth contacted me with a very clear brief. They wanted relaxed and candid shots without any of the ‘boring’ traditional shots they had seen on so many other sites.
I was only with the couple for a few hours so it was a real whistle-stop wedding tour that took in some of the bridal preparation, the ceremony and the start of the festivities that followed.
Colour was a big theme of the day and this comes through in the more than usually vibrant images. The kids in attendance were of particular importance and they did not disappoint. I always take time to introduce myself to the younger members of the wedding party rather than just being a hidden face behind a monster lens.
Note Helen’s bridal footwear, a pair of purple wellies that set the good time tone for the day right from the start. ‘Key shots’, or posed couple shots were not on the agenda for the day. I encouraged the couple to spend a few minutes together out of the limelight and managed to snap some lovely candid images of these intimate moments.
