Netherwood Hotel Wedding
I was given a brief – something a bit unusual/Rock ‘n’ rolla style please. Oh, I thought ‘music to my ears’
The venue was The Netherwood Hotel The dark wood panelling was an interesting factor and the old grandfather clock. Alison made life very easy for me, she had a clear idea of what she wanted me to capture – not alot of starting into cameras all day.
When a bride has her hair down I think, certainly in Alison’s case is an excellent move. Her beautiful dark hair really jumps out and reminds me of fairytale stuff – i.e ‘Rapunzel’.
Sometimes it just clicks for me & this day was one of them. Both Dan & Alison were a joy to photograph and presented something unique for each photograph I took. Quiet and unassuming people tend to bring out the best in me. Photographing brash Londerners would have me in fits. I brought some ideas on the mobile, sometimes they work sometimes not, but on the whole we got a great spread of imagery natural, creative, avant garde 🙂
The weather was beautiful the following day was heavy rain so these guys had the fortune of the gods looking over them. These are some of my favs from Dan & Alisons wedding day.
The church was St.Johns, Levens, Levens Village on the way to Newby Bridge (on the top of a hill), South Lakes
There are many photographers who I admire. I try to store shots in my head when similiar situations arise. I’m not a lighting man as my work will show 2.8 lens 1600asa is standard for me. I have never understood the concept of setting up lighting only , doesnt the b&g get bored waiting for the whole process to finish? Ideas first, get the shot with a minimum fuss, and if necessary resuce it later in PhotoShop. (Not as often these days)
Capturing what everyone else has done or is doing mainstream within weddings isnt what Im about. Love themed weddings, where I can grasp the idea of it and take it in a certain direction.
My Lowell Ilight will be used more next year I love the little pools of light (blues/yellows) it makes.
The above images are just a selection of the images I like. some day all weddings will be made this way 🙂
