Sad news today – in loving memory of Emma

I have been sitting here feeling very sorry for myself for an hour or so, this morning Mrs P let me know that Emma S had passed away.  I had only met Emma once yet this lady touched my heart.  I was photographing a wedding last year when this fun and bubbly girl popped her head around the corner.  We clicked instantly and throughout the day we kept having a joke and a giggle.

Emma had been battling with cancer for a long time and with me having been ill the year we had an instant connection.  Emma (from what I saw) lived every day to the fullest.

She had an amazing family and a fabulous extended family who I know will miss her immensely.

Its not often a wedding guest wants to have their photo taken with the photographer but that was exactly what she did.

The angels will be happy today because they have received into heaven a very special person.

In Loving Memory.

Emma and her family

Emma doing what she did best having a great time with an amazing smile on her face

Emma who touched my heart.

God bless and rest in peace

Turkish Wedding Photography – National Motorcycle Museum Birmingham

An amazing wedding with 450+ guests !

A Sneak Peek – The amazing Turkish wedding celebration of Natalie and Dogan.

Hi there, I am on a bit of a roll at the moment with blog posts, they are like the number 10 bus – none for ages then 3 in a row.

A couple of weeks ago saw the team at David Purslow Photography  shooting the wedding of Natalie and Dogan, The team for the day was made up of my primary wedding assistant – Clare my  good friend Sean O’Shaughnessy (a Solihull based wedding & Portrait photographer) and myself – I needed a big team as this was a BIG BIG wedding.  Being a Turkish affair the numbers were huge, so the wedding took place at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham – The Imperial suite is one of the largest venues in the west midlands – more about this a little later – but remember this is only a sneak peek !

The day started really early for us and her is Natalie our beautiful bride at the hairdressers

Pembrokeshire Wedding – Llys Meddyg – Behind the Scenes

Hello there,

Just a quick post today showing off one of my new toys,  This weekend saw Clare and myself down in Pembrokeshire for the wedding of Maria and Wayne, I have just offloaded the photos and will get to edit them shortly but having a quick sneak peek at them I came across this photo of Wayne, it was taken in the pub next door to Llys Meddyg about an hour before the wedding – I wanted to capture the charm and ambiance  of place so didnt want to use flash to destroy the photo, the light levels in there were pretty poor as it was 3pm on dark overcast day.

Here is one of the pictures,

pembrokeshire wedding photography

So although the photo looks nice and light and bright and airy it was infact very dark, the ISO setting for those more technical out there was 4000, and it was shot at 60th of a second at F2.8 – If you look at Wayne’s waistcoat,  you will see that his front was almost totally in shade, so without killing the nice atmosphere in the room I had Clare hold an improvised ICE LIGHT — our version is a 125 bulb workshop lamp and have the light just skim off his face.

Here is a pull back a few seconds later

Just wait till you see the photos we shot down on the beach ! – yep on a very snowy day in England Maria and Wayne braved sub 0 tempratures to head to the beach for some couple photos – they came out amazing…….

more soon……
