Kimberley & Anthony's Wedding at Horsley Church & Morley Hayes

With no getting ready photographs to shoot, we started today at the beautiful St Clements Church awaiting everybody's arrival for Kimberley & Anthony. First we saw Anthony & his dad Tony, who was also his best man.


To be followed by Kimberley, her dad, and her bridesmaids.



We made sure to be around to get this lovely angle of the Bride and her father entering the church, and stayed at the back get a sneaky shot of the children's play corner - perfect for keeping little people entertained during the ceremony.



Some of my favourite shots from the day were the wonderfully atmospheric photographs taken in the vestry, as the registers were signed.




During the family photographs we always keep an eye open for any nice informal shots, and grabbed this one of one of our bridesmaids in mid contemplation.



There's a little used area in the corner of the churchyard that overlooks the lovely surrounding valley and woodland, so I talked Kimberley and Anthony into a walk down there, for a nice profile shot in semi-silhouette.


Just before we left we had the privilege of taking a portrait of Anthony's grandparents, who were celebrating the anniversary of their own wedding that day, at the exact same church, 61 years earlier. Here's their updated wedding portrait.



Not only does this white wall make a great natural reflector in the shade of a house, but also serves as a funky high-key backdrop!


Then the bridesmaids were being all cute. Again!


Then we were off to the always wonderful Morley Hayes to meet the rest of the wedding party for the reception. Since the cars were in the family, we had to get a line up photograph.


Below are two very different views of the exact same spot.






Congratulations Kimberley & Anthony!

Paige's Portrait Session. In The Shed.

It's a little known fact that we have a company shed, and every now and again we use it for photo sessions.

It's sort of a nice antidote to the funky lively high colour sort of shots we do in the studio with our white background.

Today we were shooting Paige, and the feel of the session was very chilled, with muted, vintage style colours and rustic borders for the finished images. Cheesy grins were optional, being largely replaced by wistful into-the-distance gazes, producing some fantastic natural shots.

Carrie & Anthony's Wedding at Morley Hayes

Back in September we were over at the delightful Morley Hayes to be shooting our friend Chan the Magician at his wedding to his lovely Bride Carrie.

We've known Anthony some years now and every time we see him, he always has an amazing new trick to show us. Today's wedding had a funky magic card trick theme, even the Groom wore four suits. Sorry.


We made a couple of stops to get a few shots of both the Bride and the Groom getting ready, before popping off to Morley Hayes.




Shots during the ceremony were from a good distance back, peeping through an arch from a separate room. A good long lens got us this lovely close up.



We organised the family shots while keeping an eye open for some nice informal, candid type shots too, and sure enough, the children didn't disappoint!



Anthony just had to squeeze in a trick or two before we went for a wander off around the lovely gardens at Morley for some more shots.






We've grown to love this bench for it's photogenic style and we also love this moody dramatic shot which proves that we don't always need perfect blue sky and sunny weather to get great shots.

Below is the brand new dome in the wedding garden, which will be playing host to outdoors weddings next summer.




We made an appearance for a few shots in the evening of the first dance and a cool caricature artist working the room before leaving the crowd to their partying.



Congratulations Anthony & Carrie!
