Hannah & Dan

Recently I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph the wedding of Hannah and Dan in Lichfield. The weather was, as you can see, typically British, and we spent the day sheltering indoors from the rainstorm to end all rainstorm, thus putting an end to our plans to take some beautiful photographs in the small park across the road from the Registry Office. It was a shame, but luckily, we had a backup plan in place, because of course, no wedding photographer should ever step outdoors without a backup plan. You can’t rearrange for next time, after all.

After handing my umbrella over to a little girl who’s Dad’s coat over her head was not doing much to protect her dress from the rain (it’s not like I can hold an umbrella and a camera with particular ease anyway), I spent the first hour drenched, until I finally found my way during a scheduled break to the ladies, to freshen up. Drowned rat is an understatement.

The beautiful bride, Hannah, however, looked incredible.  She was glowing. I just wanted to share a few images from the day. I had such a fun time shooting this wedding, and I was welcomed into the day with open arms by the entire wedding party, feeling like I was a part of their group rather than simply the wedding photographer. There was such a special atmosphere that day. Thank you, Hannah and Dan, for choosing me to document your day.

Oh, and a special mention has to go out to these two… they were hilarious!

Bob & Lucia

A few weeks ago I was asked to step in as photography at the wedding party of a lovely couple, Bob and Lucia. Their actual wedding had taken place in Vegas with a very small number of guests, and so this was a party for everyone who had not attended the big day itself. It was such a lovely, relaxed evening, revolved around family and friends, dancing and music and wine. There was nothing formal about it, or even remotely ‘wedding-ish’ in the traditional sense; there was no schedule to keep, it was simple a chance for everyone to get together for a good time, and to celebrate Bob and Lucia’s relationship. That was exactly how they requested for the images to look too: candid, natural, almost documentary to replace the traditional ‘formal wedding shots’ of most weddings. This was therefore easily the easiest wedding reception that I have ever shot. The amount of pressure that is instantly lifted from such a wonderfully relaxed couple who simply wanted someone to capture their evening quietly, having a laugh and a joke with their guests.
I just wanted to share a selection of images from the evening with you. With permission from Bob and Lucy, of course.
