Salterns Marina Wedding Photography – Kim & Jamie

Check out the wow shot at the end of the day!Salterns

Bride Preparation.

Salterns Mariner Hotel was the venue for Kim and Jamie’s wedding photography, and it was great to see a very happy and relaxed Bride to be Kim at Bride preparation. Kim and all her bridesmaids were to be found in the very large flat that can be rented out at the Salterns Hotel. We soon moved onto the bridal suite where I photographed the dresses all hung up on the four poster bed.

For this bridal prep, I was able to be very artistic and create some very stylish arty and imaginative images as I could move around Kim 360 degrees while she had her makeup completed. Also using my off camera lighting system I was able to create allot of various quality lighting, and change the angles of light which in turn changed the look and feel of the image. Bridal prep wedding photography has come so far in the sixteen years since I began wedding photography, from no photographers covering bride preparations to now when all photographers cover bride prep, and to myself now by introducing off camera lighting systems which are a huge game changer and really give a truly professional photographer look to the resulting images. Brides are paying extra for bride preparations, and so should expect the very highest quality in imagery from this part of the day. Using just natural light is important, but to capture the whole of bride prep using just one light source is a bit samey and unimaginative.

For me when I come to look at the images I have taken from the wedding day, I want to look at my images and be proud, but also love looking at my images and not get bored, but be enthused and excited by the look of them! So this pushes me further to experiment and produce ever more interesting and creative images.

The first look of the Father of the bride is a bit of a winner shot, his face is a picture, excuse the pun, I also like the following shots of dad opening a present form Kim and I captured Kim’s face and expression in the mirror….not an accident by the way!

The art of good reportage, relaxed photography is to get your subjects comfortable with your presence and almost forget about you, and seeing the tense feeling of excitement begin to show in the images here on Kim’s face is just what I, as a good wedding photographer, am looking for.

Outdoor Ceremony.

The Salterns Mariner Hotel as many venues now do, offer an outdoor ceremony option which I know the vast majority of brides and grooms to be absolutely love. As a wedding photographer I also love it, the light is often easy to work with, and there is more opportunities for me to move around the scene as outdoors there obviously is more room and no creaky floorboards as I move about. If I am going to move about during an outdoor ceremony I do not want to be noticed by anyone doing so, as this is the last thing any wedding photographer ever wants is to be noticed and detract from the very important proceedings!The wind did blow a bit on Kim’s walk outside to the aisle, which can be seen with the veil flying about but once she got to the aisle it died down, so all good.

Wedding Breakfast.

The room used for the wedding breakfast at Salterns Mariner Hotel has great views and has lots of light. The speeches were very funny, and the best man was a little shy for his speech, and got quite a response for the shortness of it, and his Dad then had to fill in, and this is what I love about weddings, the unexpected reactions.

Romantics Of Bride & Groom.

Using my off camera flash system I got some awesome photos of Kim and Jamie, utilising the surroundings to good effect but at the same time making sure my subjects were very well lit.

For the staircase kissing shot I bathed the stairs in a blue light and lit Kim & Jamie with a normal light, and for all the other outside shots off camera lighting was a must for the highest quality exposure.

The Wow Shot.

At most weddings I am able to produce a “wow” shot, and these can be either sunset or dramatic skies, fireworks or sparklers, but most of the time, dusk/night time shots. Kim & Jamie kissing in the ceremony gazebo is a bit of a doozy, even if I do say so myself.
