As a wedding photographer you have to be on guard all day. Things happen fast and you need to be ready to capture it and on Emily and George’s wedding day it was a prime example of this..
Their day started off at a local house which they rented for the weekend, bridal prep took place in a stunning main bedroom with beautiful natural light. Having the bride and groom get ready in separate parts of the house made getting some groom prep shots a breeze!!
The weather had taken a turn for the worse, so the ceremony was held on the middle floor with a stunning view out across a slightly angry but stunning seascape.
The love and affection between Emily and George was massive and visible throughout the ceremony and all day really. Little glances, standing close together and holding hands, all made for some beautiful imagery.
I was alittle worried about suggesting heading outside for the couples portrait shots, but Emily was more than up for it, in fact she was the one who suggested they head out onto the wall of the ladies pool for that shot, one brave lady, but it was worth it for the shot.
As the couple and their wedding party sat down for food I checked all my weather apps on my phone to see if it may ease up. To my surprise a turn in the weather was forecast for just after the end of the meal. I quickly set up the gear I needed and suggested to the couple that before the speeches maybe we try for a few more, hopefully sunset shots on the beach.
Oh boy, was it worth it. The rain stopped and the skies literally cleared the moment we stepped onto the beach. As the sun started the set, the skies exploded. Stunning.
In fact the shot of the couple just stood watching the sea is by far my most favourite shot of 2016.
After the speeches the band set up and played one amazing set. Thanks to the Hot Hats for such a great evening.
From here I bid the couple farewell and left them to party the night away.
Huge congratulations and thank you for asking me to be your wedding photographer.
PS the last shot is Jamie, the Tunnels owner wrestling with a umbrella shortly before the bride arrived.. I just had to include to show just how far the owners and staff at the venue go to make every wedding special.
