Bride preparation.

Old Vicarage near Christchurch in Dorset was to be the venue for Tara & Rob’s wedding photography near Christchurch in Dorset, and I started my day at Tara’s parent’s house. As always now, a great opportunity for me to use my off camera lights for the bridal preparation, and boy did I get some lovely lighting shots of Tara having her makeup completed, they just look awesome. I have rendered some high art post editing effects on many of these images to enhance the lighting that the majority of time was helped out by fill in lighting off camera and on camera. Some lovely natural relaxed photos hear which I really do specialize in and not only of Tara but also of other players from the day, bridesmaids and flower girls.

Once the grand entrance of Tara for her Father’s first look of her on the staircase was complete I was then off to the Old Vicarage.

Old Vicarage.

I started my photography at the Old Vicarage with some lovely location shots of the garden and house and these sort of shots are always great to use as background images in the future to be wedding book, as are also the shots of the ceremony room and other decorations throughout the wedding day.

I have lightened and created far more punch in the ceremony room photos to highlight the flowers and chair covers which are in contrast with the white walls.

Bride arrival.

Of to the front of the Old Vicarage to wait for bride arrival with the bridesmaids who were larking about and having fun while we waited, so a nice shot of those guys messing about sets the relaxed tone for all the other days photos.

Tara arrives and I have time to get some very arty interesting images through the car window, also another very creative shot with the bridesmaids lit in the background of the image with the car headlight.

Tara looked really relaxed in the car with her dad and we had time for a quick shot with her dad and all the bridesmaids in the background, a very traditional shot!

Ceremony.

Into the ceremony room with everyone waiting patiently and onto the ceremony. I have given many different looks in styles to this day’s images in the high art versions which I have used here for this blog post, and I opted to not go for the previous punchy finish for the ceremony shots as too much colour punch will detract from the emotion. A few tears and allot of laughter and I also got one of my favorite shots of the bride’s mother watching on the ceremony between bride and groom.

Relaxed.

Time for some relaxed time saying hello to guests and chatting for 10-15 minutes and then Tara and Rob went off for a short drive in the wedding car with some champagne. I took this opportunity to get a few relaxed shots of Tara and Rob in the car and then I went off to get detail shots of the wedding breakfast marquee. A lovely cake and sweet cart and all rendered in a pastel style high art tint.

Tara had a few pictures on her Pinterest board for me to capture throughout the day which was my brief, and one of these was an image with the flower girl under the veil with the bride, I also got a fantastic shot of the flower girls running around and enjoying themselves.

Speeches.

I love the image of the top table and Tara and Rob both looking very pleased with themselves and then onto the speeches photos rendered here in the black and white versions. I spend allot of time on the post editing of wedding images and the black and white images take special attention as well as each lighting condition means the tones will vary and have to be checked. I used off camera lighting for the speeches as the light can be very flat and uninteresting and lacking in contrast and form.

Bride and groom.

There are some very creative and unique images in and around the gardens at the Old Vicarage which make for lovely relaxed wedding photography, and this venue is one of my favorites in Dorset for that English country garden look. There are allot of really relaxed images here and they are in slight contrast with the more stylized indoor photos I did of Tara and Rob. Not bad images considering we waited for later in the day for a better light that never really materialized, amazing what you can get with an awesome wedding photographer, some off camera lighting and some imaginative post editing.

I finished off the days wedding photography with the night time shot which is so popular now, and I think I have made the lighting look really natural here.

I do get allot out of my blog posting as most my clients opt for colour, black and white and high art style versions all tailored to the commission, and this gives me awesome choice for image choice in blog posts.

I loved being part of Rob and Tara’s day it was a privilege, and very rewarding.
