SNEAK PEEK – THE WEDDING OF CLARE AND BEN
Yesterday saw me shooting the wedding of Clare and Ben, I had been looking forward to this wedding for weeks. This was quite a late booking but once the couple mentioned the words Warwick Castle and Wedding then said the wedding was an intimate wedding with only a dozen guests in total I was hooked.
If you take a peek at my photo of the week for March 11th 2012 you will see a very calm bride just sitting on the dining room table chilling before the wedding, this was the feeling the whole day long.
As this is only a snake peek the photo will jump quickly.
The first photos I took in the day were of the flowers, which were magnificent,
One of my favorite parts of the day is watching the boys trying to tie their cravats – This photo, one of a series of about 15 was taken while the father of the bride was tieing his, I am sure there was 2 or 3 attempts before finally getting it.
Since Clare was in her dress pretty early, I took the opportunity to take a few photos of the family in the back garden, here is mum and dad with Clare just before leaving for the church.
Clare and Ben had chosen to get married at St Charles Borromeo Church in Warwickshire which is a beautiful little church. Here is a shot 1/2 way thru the wedding service itself
then after the wedding was over, I added a bit of dramatic light and we get something like this
Following the wedding the whole wedding party went to Warwick Castle for the wedding reception. The wedding reception at Warwick Castle started off in the Conservatory and ended up in the state dining room, talking to the couple they decided to have the formals taken in the peacock garden by the amazing fountain.
one of the things I like about intimate weddings is the fact the whole group is easy to manage and you can get thru the photos really quickly so the couple and the guests can get on and enjoy the wedding day – here is a shot of the whole wedding party.
The wedding itself took palce fairly late so by the time we got to Warwick Castle we were blessed with a beautiful sunset
and just before I left, I took a few shots of the State dining room at Warwick Castle – this is where the bride, groom and all their guests enjoyed the rest of the day.
Naturally I had a few minutes where I had the bride and groom to myself, we used the sunset and the beautiful sky to create some dramatic wedding photos.
congratulations to Clare and Ben for a truly beautiful and intimate wedding
