Sopley Mill Spring rustic DIY wedding photography | Mickey & Amy

sopley,mill,wedding

Sopley Mill earlier in the year of 2016 for a Spring DIY rustic wedding of Mickey and Amy, which now seems so long ago. These guys are one of my busy wedding photography clients who have yet to get back to me with their free air brushing requests, if any, so I have yet to start on their black and white and high art edits, so this blog is just the normal natural colour images with no complex editing. Sopley Mill is the busiest wedding venue in Dorset and every year as a wedding photographer, I visit many times and love working really well with the team there and Jasmine who coordinates the days events is awesome and very good at what she does, and brides and grooms can have total confidence in her abilities. It was great to include a Spring flowers in a few landscape images on arrival and before the guests and bride arrived to get ready.

Bride Preparation.

Amy arrived and I got to work on bridal preparation. Hanging dress shots and shoe shots and got shots of the flowers before they had any chance of turning. Hanging of the dress shot at Sopley Mill has so many options so a bit spoiled for choice as every where looks good.

I love the shots of the air brushing of foundation on Amy’s face, it just looks so good back lit from my external lighting, this is not a common practice for makeup artists, but would love to see it become a bit more common. I had time during the bride prep to wonder about the venue and grab shots of the general decorations and ceremony room before everyone arrived, and as always the ceremony room looks right on trend of rustic.

Combining natural light and off camera lighting is just an awesome technique and really does render awesome quality!

Ceremony.

Onto the ceremony and getting into position for the wait for bridesmaids and bride to make their entrance, and photographing groom Mickey doing his best to be relaxed. In come the bridesmaids with one of the cutest flower girls of the year and she made it all the way up the aisle! Here comes the bride, and tears as Amy reaches Mickey, slightly overcome, photographers dream, right there, with the emotion straight off the bat. The photographers dream job continued with much laughter and hand holding, just makes my job so easy. Mickey very happy as he walks as husband and wife out of the ceremony room, doing a little jig/dance.

Relaxed.

A few little couple romantic bride and groom shots and I recommend them to chit chat to their guests for a little while and enjoy the canapés and a little sip of the bubbly stuff. This is also an awesome time for me to, working on my own to grab some relaxed fun guest shots.  Groups shots done and the big group shot has quite a few choices of location from above, so I tend to vary this on each visit. I decided to leave most of the romantic bride and groom shots until after the wedding breakfast as the weather forecast predicted sunshine later in the day, and I chose to believe the forecast, risky I know, but being a very local photographer I know the local weather patterns and was 100% sure the forecast was correct.

Speeches.

Speeches at Sopley Mill no matter what time of year really do need some extra lighting as the room has windows all round, but the light is limited, you can just use natural lighting, but it can be a bit hit and miss depending on where the couple decide to place their head table.

Romantic bride and groom shots.

Sure enough the sun came out and after the speeches we head on out to grab some awesome romantic images walking along the old railway track. Amy and Mickey needed next to no input from myself and I was able to leave them to be who they are as my job to make them feel relaxed in front of myself and the camera was already done.

Evening reception.

Onto more relaxed guest shots and cutting of the cake just before the first dance and then photo that drunk dancing. As most of my couples desire, I finished off my commission with a dusk shot.
