I do love it when a plan comes together! I had a great wedding on Saturday at Wiston House is Sussex. The venue was absolutely gorgeous, and what was particularly great about this venue was the lighting. The room where the speeches and dancing were held had large archway windows, which made for perfect side lighting.
Just before the first dance, I noticed that the DJ had some spotlights which are absolutely perfect for lens flare shots. For a perfect lens flare photo we needed the right amount of natural light, right size and angle of the spotlight and the perfect lens on to capture it at the right time. All these things came together beautifully for Sharlene and Mark’s first dance and I really loved the results.
Here are a few dance photos to share, included my favourite lens flare and dip shot!
Picking how to display photos can sometimes be a complicated as picking the photos themselves. As many people cannot pick just one image to display, one of the more popular products we can suggest to our customers are montages. This can include anywhere from three to nine images displayed as a set, framed for the wall.
The last few weeks have seen a lot of people going for four image montages as they can be displayed either four images in each corner or three smaller images next to one large. We’ve been so pleased with the results we thought we would share a few with you.
For one couple who came in as an engagement present from the parents, they were spoilt for choice so got 2 montages, one for them and one for their parents. Another was for a family that came in as part of our cherubs baby club scheme – I particularly love the hands shot in this montage! There was also a family with two lively boys that won a voucher with us at a silent auction who did a great montage.
They are all so different, but tell such a great story. Most got these pieces as part of our montage package that also includes another three 6″x8″ prints and two 8″x10″ prints so great for those who want lots of photos!
I shot a lovely Easter wedding at The Berystede hotel last weekend. A spring theme of sunflowers was present in all the decorations, the bouquets and even in the dress!
Ruth had the privilege of having an incredibly talented dress designer for a mother. From discussions we had before the wedding, I think this was the third dress that was designed but it was definitely worth the obvious time and effort that had been put into it.
The detail on the outside of the dress was gorgeous, but my favourite parts were the details most didn’t see. Under the many layers of the dress was a section of silk that had the couples names and date sewn on. On the first layer there was also a little pocket for Ruth to carry her makeup in! I loved that – why don’t more dresses have pockets in?
The day went brilliantly, even though the weather was a bit temperamental. We got loads of great natural photographs as Ruth and her dress were swung around by Jon at high speeds during the barn dance at the end!
