Gemma & Jason / Preview

Last Saturday was simply brilliant. Everything a wedding photographer could ask for! I was at Upton Barn & Walled Garden for the wedding of Gemma and Jason. Stunning venue, check! The day started at the nearby lodges, capturing the preparations of the bridal party, to the energetic sounds of hip hop. Great music, check! Most importantly however, and I've said this before, the people are the most important aspect, and this photo sums it up.

The one time the rain showed up was for Gemma's walk down the aisle, but that didn't stop her from embracing the moment! A super couple to capture all day long, check! Love this job! Blog to follow soon!

Jo & Rob / Preview

Last weekend I headed into the middle of Devon for Jo and Rob's wedding day. I won't be the only photographer stating that it was the hottest wedding of the year so far, and likely will remain that way!

I started the day at Jo's mum's house in Uplowman, which is the basis of the below photo. Nearing close to the ceremony time Jo gave gifts to her bridesmaids and her mum, which turned into this embrace. This for me is the key kind of image of a wedding day. This was about the forth of fifth shot in this sequence, adjusting the frame to compliment the moment each time. Trying to avoid distractions and add depth to the photo.

The day went on with a real village community vibe, holding the reception at the local village hall with children everywhere enjoying the sunshine. Blog to follow soon with the whole story...

Let me first provide some context. It's half term week, the wife and kids have been away for a few days and I've been struck with man flu, but I soon perked up when I'd found out I'd won a Fearless Award for this image!
