Suffolk Pre-wedding Photography - Helions Bumpstead
It was great to meet up with Charlotte and George ahead of their wedding in a couple of weeks time. The whole occasion will have a beautiful country flavour to it, with Charlotte walking to the local church with her father and returning with her groom George to Charlotte's parents house for the reception which will be awash with hay bales, fairy lights and bunting. Very much looking forward to capturing their day for them. Here's a shot taken with the Fuji XT1 and the stunning 56mm f1/2 in the fields adjacent to Charlottes house. Here's hoping the farmer holds back on the harvest for a couple more weeks.
It was lovely to meet up with Vicki and Stuart ahead of their wedding at Horwood House. This is a venue I haven't been to for many years so it was a great opportunity for us to explore the house and gardens. Despite rushing during work, they were both extremely relaxed and easy to work with - I'm very much looking forward to returning for the wedding in August, in the meantime - here are a few images from the shoot.
It was great to meet up with Sara and Sean recently to discuss plans for their big day at Dodmoor House in June. I'm very much looking forward to telling the story of their day with family and friends. We were lucky enough to have a little time for some photography and the thunderstorms kept away for a little while as we spent some time in Dodmoor's lovely gardens and along the nearby canal tow path - life seems to have a much slower pace down there and Sara and Sean were the perfect couple to photograph, fun and very relaxed in front of the camera. Here's a small selection of images from the shoot.
It was great to meet up with Louise and Gavin ahead of their wedding this weekend at Holdenby House. The weather was a little inclement to say the least, cold with gusty winds but this didn't dampen spirits. My photographic style during the wedding day is much more spontaneous and less choreographed, this look can be difficult to achieve with portraits unless your subjects are relaxed in front of the camera - full marks to Louise and Gavin for their fun approach to the shoot. Pre wedding shoots are available as an optional extra on wedding packages. Here are a few of my favourites.
It was great to meet up with Hayley and Dan recently to discuss their big day in August at the Jacobean Manor House - Fanhams Hall, Ware. It is a great venue for a wedding with stunning reception rooms and beautifully manicured gardens - there's even a waterfall ! A Pre-wedding shoot is offered as an optional extra to my wedding packages and well worth it if you have reservations about the wedding photography experience - you will certainly find that you are much more relaxed on the day.
Pretty much four seasons in one day at Fawsley Hall last weekend. It was lovely to meet up with Sahira, Paul and Lily ahead of their big day in April. Here's a small selection of images from the shoot, no guessing as to who the star of the show was !
It was great to meet up with Zoe and Glen recently to chat about their forthcoming wedding at Highgate House, Northants. I include a pre-wedding shoot with most of my wedding packages these days, it's a great opportunity to meet up with my clients before the wedding day and get them used to being photographed. Zoe and Glen were complete naturals, I'm very much looking forward to working with them in a short while. Here are a few of my favourite shots.
It was great to meet up with Pauline and Ping at Oakwood House, Maidstone a couple of weeks ago for a chat about their forthcoming wedding and a few shots around the house and grounds. I met Pauline a few years ago when she was a bridesmaid at her friend Kelly's wedding at Castle Ashby. Pauline and Ping's wedding will be very much a fusion of the contemporary and traditional and I'm very much looking forward to capturing their big day in September.
It was lovely to meet up with Clare and John ahead of their wedding later in August at Launton Church. Here are a few images from the shoot.
It was lovely to meet up with Dia and Ollie recently and discuss their forthcoming wedding at the Priory Barn, Little Wymondley. It also gave us the time for a quick pre-wedding shoot in the grounds of the St Michael's Manor Hotel in St Albans. Here's a little selection.
