Evelyn & James Get Married!

Exactly a year a go to the day I was busy shooting, my soon to be sister in-laws, wedding down in Dorset. From this one of her work colleagues asked if I would like to shoot their wedding in April 2013. Of course I said ‘yes’ and so started the planning in preparation for James and Evelyn’s big day.

Evelyn & James were married at the Parish Church of Saint Peter and Saint Andrew in Old Windsor. A beautiful ceremony was followed by a wonderful reception held at the Saxons Barn in Windsor. Given the horrendous weather that has besieged the UK since, well many years a go it would seem, I was thinking about contingency arrangements for photos to be taken indoors. However, waking up on Saturday morning I was greeted by clear blue skies and the thermometer steadily rising. Of course, whilst this kind of weather is perfect for everyone else, it certainly makes the job of a photographer that much harder. Even more so when I considered that the shots taken after the ceremony were going to be in midday sun.

However, the bride and groom were fantastic, and were happy to be moved around and placed into locations to limit direct sun. The end result was some fantastic photos (even if I do say so myself!) and ones that I feel capture the pure essence of their wedding day – love, fun and happiness!

The complete set of photos, approved by the Bride & Groom, can be found on my Flickr site.
