I had the pleasure of photographing Sarah & Adrian's Wedding last saturday, quite a way out of my usual patch, but Sarah & Adrian had been reccomended to me by some friends who's wedding I photographed back in the end of 2010... this was not the only connection I have to the family, as I later found out my father in law once dated Adrian's Mum!... the lovely Elizabeth!
It was an absolutely gorgeous day and not too hot either, the Parish Church in Knowle is large & beautiful, particularly nice for photography with plently of streaming daylight from two levels of gorgeous stained glass windows along the length of both sides of the church which also features a long central aisle, making for some nice long lens, telephoto shots of the ceremony in progress from the back.
The reception was at Packwood House, a National Trust property which is simply a photographers dream for Bride & Groom portraiture, you could easily spend a few hours shooting spectacular shots in the dramatic, colourful landscaped gardens and Adrian & Sarah were just fab to work with, so relaxed, allowing me a free reign to get creative in the gardens.
Below are a few of my favourites from the day, and congratulations once again to Adrian & Sarah and I look forward to seeing you both in the studio for a viewing & choosing session for the album! - Steven
