Wedding Photography: Cantley House Woking

In april I was in woking at the wonderful Cantley house, A lovely secluded venue with some great gardens and indoor space, Who will also cater for marquee weddings. I cannot recommend this venue enough, The day went smoothly and the wedding planners were excellent and their efforts were amazing. http://www.cantleyhotel.co.uk

In this post will be a list of suppliers who were present on the day too, and they were all great, especially the Pro Slot racing (giant scalectrix) which kept everyone entertained.

The Brides Arivval was in this wonderfull 1930’s badsworth from christophers.co.uk, As you can see it looked great on the day,

I think the Expressions in the image, really capture what i love about wedding photography

CantleyHouseWokingwedding-10The Signing of the Register, This was the Posed shot so don’t worry i wasn’t shooting what i wasn’t meant to, the registrar’s have this ”signing” one, complete with fake names so it looks great

Dorset wedding photography: winter west bay wedding

A little while ago this one now. Back in november i shot a wedding in west bay dorset. The venue being the haddon house hotel. A lovely place to stay!

The weather was a bit sour! Big 40mph sw winds and driving rain made outdoor pictures difficult to say the least. Group shots done inside with use of the hotels christmas decorations. We then braved the outdoors some pictures around west bay in the dark. Shooting on the side of the harbour with the rain and wind was a challenge but we did it! Some lovely images. We then shot in the arcade and the launderette! Yes thats right.. we were passing and the door was open so rude not too!

So here are a few pictures from the day

Thanks for reading

Somerset Wedding Photography

Hello me again,

This is going back to the 31st of October this year. I shot a wedding in Taunton in Somerset. Church and reception being on the grounds of Taunton School, a private school with some amazing grounds!

With bridal prep at a local hotel, the bride arrived on a horse drawn carrige. The church its self was incredibly dark, with the obvious no flash rule it made life tricker than it could have been. really had to push the cameras to the limit on the ISO speed, with the 1ds having to be maxed out at 3200.  This still only gave me a speed of 1/25th at best at F/4. So to those who know you’ll see just how dark it was. Still some amazing shots of course, the inside was stunning!

Dorset Wedding Photography: Hannah & Chris

Hi all,

 

This was a wedding shot back in September of this year. A Really fantastic couple who both like the camera. Which is always a Bonus!

 

I won’t bore you with to many words for this one, But it was a wedding on Portland again, with the church on Easton Square being where the ceremony took place. This is a really lovely church, big very bright and built from portland stone which with its light colours makes for great images.

This last picture was great, We went up to portland bill for the pictures of hannah and chris. And unknown to us it was national speak like a pirate day!  So these rather friendly pirates from the Portland Bill visitors centre came and did some pictures with us
