Farnham Castle Winter Wedding Photography Reception Of Kim & Steve In Surrey

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

In December we had the pleasure of photographing Kim & Steve. Starting in Odiham where the bride got ready. As you can see from the photos the couple were blessed with a glorious sunny winter’s day. The church in the town of Odiham was All Saints Church.

Following the ceremony and what must have been the most amount of confetti I have ever seen on a wedding, off we went to Farham about ½ hour away by car for the reception.

Farnham Castle where the wedding reception took place is a beautiful setting for a wedding. We still had some light when we arrived so we could get some outside shots before the sun went down. Then the light soon changed and on came the castle floodlights. I used a technique of balancing flash with the ambient light and as you can see from the photos, the bride had umbrellas with lights inside them. She made these herself. Kim I have to say was a very talented bride as she made so many things for her wedding day. She even made her own wedding dress and I don’t think many brides today would attempt to tackle such a task.

I really enjoy playing with mixing flash lighting with the ambient light outside. There are several examples where I have used this technique. The photos by the VW camper van I had my assistant stand just out of view of the subject to camera right to put a bit of flash on the subject.

  1. Paul, it must be amazing to have so many lovely venues for your work. How many wedding photographers in the world get to shoot at cool castles and old roman baths? Certainly not here in the USA. I particularly liked seeing the wedding lanterns at night post and your fabulous black & white personal photos when you went to the coast. This is a very lovely website and blog! Cheers!
