Awesome couple, check. Awesome venue, check. Friends & Family up for an fantastic time, check.
Paul and Anna's wedding was an incredible day, we started off with bridal prep as usual where my inept crossword skills were put to the test and everyone got ready for the day. Then it was a short drive down the road to St. John Church in Hagley, which is one of the best looking churches I've had the pleasure to shoot at, great inside and out and with the incredible weather that we had on the day looks stunning.
After a great service we all headed over to Curradine Barns in Worcestershire, where the guests were greeted by the happy couple who both looked great, Anna rocking an awesome dress and Paul looking rather dapper in his suit, mulled wine was served and christmas trees were up. One of the great things about Curradine Barns is the intimate and rustic nature of the venue, its cosy without being cramped a really beautiful place that looked fantastic.
The day soon turned into the night with the wedding breakfast and some seriously funny speeches, couldn't quite believe some of the stuff but hearing what crazy things people get up to is one of the many perks of the job!
The evening was headed up by a great band and the guests pulling some impressive dance moves on the dance floor as well as the couple who feature in the shot above which is one of my favourite shots to date.
I shot this wedding with the Fuji X100 and two XE2's with the 35mm & 56mm lenses. I carried the cameras a little differently and that was to ditch the bag and have 2 around my neck and one over the shoulder, this allowed me to shoot reactively and very quickly, even if i did look a bit like a Vietnam war photographer. I also used the fantastic and small Nissin i40 flash which performed incredibly well for me at this wedding and helped keep my kit night and light.
Massive thanks to Anna & Paul for allowing me into their lives and to document the day, it was a truly enjoyable event and I wish you all the happiness for the future.
