Winter Wedding Photography Hampshire
“From the moment we first met him we felt at ease and the whole process was very relaxed. On our big day David had an amazing ability to be invisible, we hardly noticed him. Even in the middle of winter when the light is not ideal his photos looked spectacular; he captured all the right moments of us, friends and family. We were thrilled to see the photos after our honeymoon and have had so many lovely comments from everyone.” Matt + Camilla
Having shot a really fun engagement shoot with the couple on the beach at West Wittering a few months earlier, I knew that this was a wedding that would yield some amazing documentary pictures. Matt and Camilla were so relaxed in front of the camera and put so much trust in me, while they simply got on and enjoyed every second of the day. It was also really nice to work with a second photographer to capture Matt and his ushers before the ceremony, and provide extra coverage throughout the day. A second photographer is something that I can provide all my couples with on request. It meant that after photographing bridal prep at the family home I was able to taking the short journey to church with Camilla and her dad, safe in the knowledge that the build up to the ceremony, as guest arrived at church, would be well documented.
Being quite late in the day we also knew that it would be getting dark as the ceremony ended, and sure enough, by the time we reached the Tithe Barn for the reception, darkness had descended. The perfect opportunity then for the ushers to distribute the sparklers and for everyone to welcome the newlyweds into the warmth of the barn, where we were greeted by a very festive lighting scheme, the brass band playing from the mezzanine level and a magician working his way among the guests. Speeches took place before the meal, and soon after dinner Matt & Camilla took to the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife.
One of the things I really enjoyed last year was the introduction of unlimited coverage of the day, providing couples with the peace of mind that I’ll stay though out the evening to capture the big finale as they depart the wedding. Shot selection becomes increasingly important toward the end of the night, so as to avoid embarrassment, but on a day so special as this doesn’t every moment deserves to be captured.
A huge thank you goes to Kevin at www.scott-wood.uk for his assistance as my second photographer.
