This weeks photo comes from a wedding I shot yesterday, it was the wedding of Susie and Chris. The couple both live in Australia but Susie returned to her homeland for the wedding – Susie and Chris got married at Drumtochy Castle / and the church just down the road. I have dozens of amazing wedding photos from their wedding so choosing one was hard.
While this might not be the most amazing photo from the wedding (just you wait to see what I did with Susie’s beautiful Ian Stuart Wedding Dress) it is a photo I am incredibly delighted with.
The Church at Drumtochty castle is an amazingly beautiful little church, its also in a valley and the whole time I was up there it was never above freezing. The day of the wedding (see second photo) it was about -4 and there was a killer frost on the ground – why am I telling you this, well its because the church was in shadow the whole time, as you can see it only had little windows and big thick stone walls. This made it very very very very very very dark – you get the picture.
Getting this shot was a huge challenge – I had to shoot at ISO6400, I was shooting hand held at around 1/20th – 1/40 th of a second most of the time and I was only getting an Fstop of between 2.8 and 4
Here is it
Getting married in the Church at Drumtochty Castle had to be an amazing experience, thanks to Reverend Thomas for allowing us to capture these photos during the service.
Just to show how cold it was, here is a shot with Susie and Chris and Dad (father of bride)
