The beauty of shooting weddings is that each one is different. Whether the ceremony is conducted by a 90 year old vicar, a humanist registrar or if it’s held in a barn, in a hotel or a field even, each one is totally unique. From a photographic point of view they all present their own challenges, sure, but there is one thing that I absolutely know without a doubt when I pack up my kit and head to my next wedding - it’s going to be fun.
It was as I headed across (or down, depending where you live) to Wiltshire that I had these thoughts as I’d been really looking forward to shooting Martyn & Cynthia’s big day. We’d already done an engagement shoot together and I could just tell that their day was going to be a blast from start to end. And so it was. From meeting Cynthia and her Mum and friends in The Gainsborough Hotel in Bath in the morning, to arriving at the church to be greeted by the friendliest, most amenable Vicar imaginable, the tone was set. The reception was held in the gorgeous surroundings of Martyn’s parent’s home where the effort and hard work they had put in to making the garden look its best for the guest arrivals was plain to see. It was the amazing Tim & Lucy from Malt & Marble who brought everything together though. Their thought, design, organisation and attention to detail was truly impressive. They made the day run like clockwork and watching the guests have such a fun time once again reminded me of why I love shooting weddings. Plus, any wedding that has a hog roast in the evening will always get a big thumbs up from me!
So, thanks to Martyn and Cynthia for having me along, to their family and friends for being so welcoming and to the tireless Tim and Lucy for making my job that much easier. It really was a day to remember!
