So, a blast from the past here. This was the second wedding I ever shot, but its still one of my favourites. Salle Church is in the middle of nowhere, somewhere in Norfolk. So much so that I got lost on the way to the church! I still made it in time but bought a sat-nav as soon as I got home, its now one of my most valuable pieces of kit.
Lucy and Graham are friends of ours and put us up in a hotel near the church (Katie did the makeup). We met up with them the night before as they were preparing the church hall (cricket club) for the reception. On the way back to the hotel there was a forecast on the radio predicting a clear misty morning. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to get up and steal some shots of the church at dawn. A success even though my lens misted up (see the water tower shot) and I got very muddy.
The wedding itself was beautiful. Everything you see was made by the bride and groom and their family. The church was simply amazing, and the quaint little cricket club was perfect for tea and cakes. I have re-edited these shots for the blog which wasn’t easy as my skills were not as developed as they are now and some of the exposures were a little off! Its worth noting that I have experimented in a new colour space (Lab) so some of the colours are a little saturated. As naive as some of the composition is, some of my favourite shots come from this wedding. Would I shoot it differently now? Certainly, but I like it how it is. For me it captures both Lucy and Grahams amazing day and a step for me in my career.
