Kerri and Andy got married at the end of July and chose the wonderful Kentchurch Court as their venue and I can say that this great location did not disappoint, a mix of elegant architecture, old relics and a field full of deer made for a great wedding venue and just an awesome day overall.
We started off the day with bridal prep as I usually do, Kerri made a fantastic bride and was fully confident in the documentary style and my abilities, as well as being keen for me to experiment a bit and try out a bit of different stuff. This lead me to really giving free-lensing a go, where by with lens is set to infinity focus and detached form the camera, this give a sort of tilt shift effect which while looking great is hard to get accurate, I also broke out the old OM lenses for a bit of the day, the 200mm coming in quite useful for getting a shot of the deer.
The day soon progressed onto a great service in the main room of the house and then outside for drinks and canapés, here I found the OM 100mm to be a very useful tool to get a few of the more long distance shots.
We then took some time to do a few couple portraits in a nearby woods which gave some really nice backlighting and lent itself perfectly to the free-lensing technique.
This was then followed by food in the form of a fish and chip van which was a great way to do wedding food, the rest of the day was spent outside and the weather stayed great apart for the odd shower.
One of the best things about this wedding has to be the bouncy castle which is a must for nay outdoor wedding, not only did the kids love it but by the evening the adults, bride and myself were all having a go, which lead to a few interesting photos.
The evening was then rounded off by dancing and sparklers and just a bunch of great people having a fantastic time.
I really enjoyed shooting this wedding and can't thank Kerri and Andy enough for choosing me to be their wedding photographer and being so supportive of my work, I hope you guys have a truly great future together!
