After their engagement shoot in Toulouse I knew I was going to have so much fun at Sophie and Mark’s wedding near Sophie’s family home at the impressive Southwell Minster. Having stayed in their Toulouse apartment, seeing them again at the wedding really was like meeting up with old friends.
The Minster was a magnificent building and although I was only able to shoot from the balcony during the ceremony I think I managed to capture how grand it was. The sun shone through the church and it’s light brick just gave such a warm look to these shots. After the ceremony we headed to the Papakata Tee Pee for a laid back wedding reception where much fun and frivolity ensued!
Tim and Ellie chose to have their shoot in Richmond Park and it was fun trying to find a little piece of the park and make it look like it wasn’t in the middle of a city. It’s amazing how many couples are nervous before their shoot and then when it comes to the day they are just the easiest couples ever.
I try and make the shot easy by directing you and making jokes, but sometimes, like with Ellie and Tim, I don’t have to do very much at all! The park gave us some lovely backgrounds and the early autumn light was a lovely environment to be shooting in. Although I’m now an Edinburgh Wedding Photographer I’m still taking bookings from couples all across the country!
It was lovely going back to Duncton Mill, a venue I’d shot at a few years ago as it is a wonderfully chilled venue in an amazing location right beside the lake. Wedding couples getting married here can even have a small boat ride around the lake when they want to have a little bit of private time!
Kat and Charlie really did the venue justice with lots of lovely little vintage details that made the marquee look magnificent. Although there was a little bit of rain into the afternoon (note the umbrellas!) they were both really happy to have a wander round the lake for their wedding photos. It was also nice to have a quick mini session with each of the bridesmaids and their partners so they got some nice couples photos too!
