I was very pleased when Liz and Andrew asked me document their intimate wedding in Tylney Hall. Every wedding I document is special, there are always stories that appear during the day, traditions that are new to me or special to the couple and situations are also different making it for an interesting experience.
Liz and andrew had invited their closest friends and family to witness their wedding, resulting in party of 21 people. Shooting intimate weddings can be challenging as guests are going to be more aware of the photographer so more effort needs to be done to remain discreet but at the same be welcomed by the guests – I tend to shoot less but we more considered when I take my shots.
The day had a relaxed pace to it and I witnessed my first red wedding dress of the year that was worn with grace and style by Liz, but also witnessed my first duck feeding tradition! During preparation calls (normally takes place the week prior to the wedding) I ensure that I check all relevant details and Liz made me aware of the importance of this moment for them and I was therefore keen to ensure I captured this moment to the best of my ability.The day followed with a drinks reception and then speeches and a meal in the Newnham room.
Below are some of my favorites of the day, please feel free to leave me and Liz and Andrew a comment at the end the this blog post. I hope that you like them!
