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.
