Matt her husband to be way getting ready just below in Harry’s Room, this is one of my favourite rooms to photograph in I think ever, the way the light comes in and falls away into the dark wood panelling makes photographing groom prep look exceedingly masculine and gives the images an edgy cut to them.
For the ceremony I chose to add in a little light for my second photographer who was photographing at the back of the room, this gave the images a more consistent feel about them and stopped the ugly flaring and haloing which destroys the detail in the images.
After the emotional ceremony everyone headed outside for a large group photo and to shower the beautiful bride and groom in confetti before enjoying a drink in the courtyard while I photographed the family all together in the driveway.
Before the couple were welcome inside for speeches, we managed to capture a small collection of stunning portraits which have a warm autumnal look to them. Once seated the speeches were met with a rapturous applause and a collection of belly jiggering laughter!
As the sun started to set, we headed outside to capture an amazing sunset, before the evening guests arrived and the rest of the evening celebrations commenced, starting with cutting the cake, and then their first dance!
We always make sure we light our dance floor to capture the action in the best possible way, don’t worry it’s not lit up like a football pitch we flash time to time!
We finished our extended coverage with some night portraits on the stairs and outside and a sparkler exit!
