I had a lovely time shooting Charlotte & Tims wedding in Wellesbourne where they got married in St Peters Church before heading over to the fabulous Walton Hall
I started shooting at Charlotte's childhood home for the detailed shots of the brides dress, shoes, jewellery and all the things that make a wedding just so special! Charlotte is a beautiful bride with stunning eyes, I don't know her that well really but can safely say, she shone in her Maggie Sottero gown and it's clear what a nice person she is by the love shown towards her by friends and family.
I think Tim was visibly moved as he saw his bride to be approaching up the aisle, he did well holding it together and soon after they got hitched you could see the relief and happiness they both shared.
We ran a little over at the church so I had to quickly manage the time and guests to make the most out of the venue before guests were seated ready for the wedding breakfast.
Tim gave a cracking speech and his son Joshua moved everyone to tears when he stood to say a few words but the occasion was a little overwhelming for him poor fellow. However, like a true pro he rose to his feet to congratulate the lovely bride and how proud he was of his father.
I think I'm getting worse when it comes to emotional weddings, normally I am able to just concentrate on the job in hand but I'm not sure if it's because I have 2 children now and have become a big softie, well, yes that's it I think. I'm just a big softie.
Visually emotions are great on camera as it helps tell a story but also it tells me something about my subjects and helps me to predict moments quicker. I suppose a good photographer is a good reader of character or at least, should be. We're storytellers, just not with words.
Anyway enough chatting about a great wedding lets see some pictures.
