Nuthurst Grange Wedding Photography – The Matherine

Hello there,

A few quick sneak peeks today,  just under 2 weeks ago I shot an amazing wedding for a fantastic couple an the truly magnificent Nuthurst Grange Hotel in Warwickshire.

Warwickshire weddding venue - nuthurst grange

I was very excited when Catherine and Matt  – or collectively as their friends refer to them, the Matherin let me know they were getting married at Nuthurst Grange Country House Hotel, its a venue I have heard a lot about and one I have wanted to do wedding photography at for a good while.  A very good friend of mine (non mafia related) and great wedding photographer Sean O’Shaughnessy had told me lots about this venue and about Vanessa the wedding events manager and just how good they are at looking after the couple and the photographer.  It far exceeded what he had said, nothing at all seemed too much.

As this is just a sneak peek, I get to pick a few of my favorites and will keep the descriptions to a minimum.

I love this little nook I found at the top of the stairs.

We (my assistant and I) try not to monopolise the couples time at a wedding, we find spots like this and then steal the couple away for 5 – 10 minute little photo sessions before sending them back to their guests.

Often I hear photographers say I dont like very sunny days, the light is too bright, well I LOVE bright sunshine and nothing to me makes a wedding better than if the couple are madly crazily in love (as with The Matherine) and if its a wonderful sunny day for them.

This shot was taken just using reflectors to light the couple and the refleciton of the sun bouncing off the side wall of Nuthurst Grange.

but this shot was lit with the sun directly behind the couple and Clare (my assistant) holding a light just out of camera shot to light them up, I LOVE this photo !

Last but not least is a photo of the girls, The bridesmaids dresses were beautiful as were the girls themselves and although when I arrived they were all running around in PJ’s without makeup on etc, I knew this photo, the bride with her girls would be a stunner

right back to editing the wedding, hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek,

ciao for now

Manor Hotel Solihull Wedding photography – Alison and Rob

Hey there boys and girls,

I am on a roll today,

here is a quick sneak peek at one of my wedding this week, it was a very busy weekend with 2 full day weddings back to back followed by a full days studio shoot.

I had been looking forward to the wedding of Alison and Rob for about 12 ish months, as it was about then that they booked me, when I heard the couple were getting married at The Manor Hotel in Solihull I was excited because I had always wanted a great shot of a bride and groom on the staircase with the amazing chandelier they have there.

The Manor Hotel in Sollihull is a fabulous wedding venue which  looks amazing from the outside

But the real charm of the venue is the inside, I will share more images with you when I post the couples wedding story but in the mean time, here is one from the stairs

What an amazing day and what an amazing wedding, so much to tell, so many great photos to share, and something I have never seen in my 16 years as a wedding photographer.

cant give too much away but this is a clue !

Worcestershire Weddding Photography – The site is getting too big !

Hey boys and girls,

today I woke up to the website being down, as you know I have not updated for a while, the main reason is currently we are very very busy, well today to add to the stresses and strains our website crashed and was off line for 14 hours.

Having spoken to the technical boys, we have decided that over the next week or so we are going to move the whole David Purslow Photography website to a dedicated server.

Having had the DPP blog running since 2008, its not so big that it needs its own dedicated machine and thanks to the likes of YOU our visitors our traffic and bandwidth has doubled in just 18 months.

So since I am back to having to work on the website, and to keep Emma (Best Bird) happy I will be updating the site agian from today.

The first photo I want to post if from a wedding this weekend, it will end up as my image of the week but thought it would be a great starting point.

Its from the wedding of Hayley and Dan which took place at the beautiful Ganary Hotel nr Kidderminster.  Its actually a photo from the bridal preparations portion of the day, I stumbled upon Grandad (father of the bride) doing the cravats of the boys in one of the bed rooms, behind them was amazing light and using natural light I managed to grab this moment before they spotted me

anyway its good to be back, watch this space for updated !
