Wedding photographer's blog
With stormy weather outside the office whilst writing this blog post, some of you might think that looking back at a July wedding would feel rather distant. And to an extent, you'd be right, except for the weather. Poor Kelly and Richard's wedding took place on probably the wettest day of July. Rubbish. Tell you what though, it was a fantastic day, and great to be their wedding photographer.
Today's blog post is going to be a little different to normal, ie wedding photography has taken a back seat. Perhaps like many people, I have my favourite websites and individuals that I like to check in with online once in a while - whether the websites are of personal interest, or industry related. There is one such website/company that I find particularly intriguing and motivating. It is connected with the wedding industry but also I find it personally very thought-provoking as well. A few months ago it was encouraging photographers to think outside of the wedding industry by using the following quote - "Broadening your photographic appetite will strengthen your abilities." So what did this mean to me?
I first met Cassie and Richard many years ago whilst skiing in the French Alps of all places. At the time I was struck by how gentle and kind Cassie was, and how good a story teller Richard could be. His knack of weaving a story line around and around different subjects was very clever. But one thing was for certain, they both loved each other very much. Fast forward a few years, I was delighted to be asked to be their photographer at their wedding. They chose a small venue in the Cotswolds, which was perfectly reachable for me to get to from Warwickshire.
Last August Bank Holiday weekend saw the wedding of Nicky and Jai here in Warwickshire. They chose the fabulous St.Giles Church in the rural village of Chesterton. Then celebrated with their friends and family at Wootton Park near Henley-in-Arden in the middle of the Warwickshire countryside. The day was dry, a little cloudy at first, and then the sky cleared to reveal a stunning sunset later in the evening.
Wootton Park is an exclusive wedding venue set in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside. Originally a 16th Century Farmhouse, it has now become a popular venue to host wedding celebrations and other events. It has been tastfully developed to cater for weddings and celebrations in a quiet and secluded area of the county.
My open and personal approach means you’ll feel completely at ease with me on the big day.
