A Farnham Castle wedding
I am lucky to be recommended by Farnham Castle, and so have another lovely Farnham Castle wedding to share with you! I live very locally to this stunning venue, so feel lucky to be able to capture many beautiful weddings there. It still opens up new ideas and places for photographs every time that I go! I put this largely down to each individual couple and their style and characters, as to which parts of the Castle grounds or Keep they wish to go to. That, combined with the changing seasons, leaves endless variety and choices for where and how the photographs can be taken. A lot of what I do is very natural and relaxed, capturing the wedding guests chatting and mingling; the flower girls as they twirl and play; and just using my eyes that are constantly roaming and finding the little shots of events happening around me.
Alice and Mansel were a joy to photograph! I work very much at a short distance so that you do not feel to pressured or posed, but at the same time, I also like to have a lot of input into light direction, background, and yes also to an extent pose, but this is all done through gentle suggestions of ‘ hug him close’ or ‘grab him tightly’ – it just gives me the slightest amount of control that I need to provide you with high quality, professional level wedding photographs, but doesn’t leave you feeling awkward or embarrassed.
The photographs here are a mixture of both of a completely reportage style, as well as a few classic images of bride and groom together. For me it is important to also capture that love and emotion between you, just by spending 15 minutes away from your guests, and yes, bring a glass of bubbly too! I have heard of so many couples requesting only a reportage style, to afterwards regret not having any of just the two of them together, or no full length shots, or none of the bride and her mother. Usually tales that are told to me by other wedding guests who are observing my mix of styles, and telling me of the gaps that they experienced in their own wedding photographs. I realise that everyones requirements are different, and I do tailor my timings to suit how you want your day to run, but I also make sure that all elements of the day are covered both in a slightly classical portrait way (by that I don’t mean stuffy!), and a natural storytelling style. Both which sit beautifully together in a wedding album.
If you are planning a Farnham Castle wedding I would love to hear from you and find out more about your wedding! I get great pleasure out of meeting new people at a very exciting time I their lives. I also realise that you need to feel comfortable as well as trust your wedding photographer, so what better way to meet me in person to find out how I may be the photographer for you!?
