Lizzie & Matt's Wedding at St Werburgh's Church & Masa.

Our first proper blog post of 2012, we're going to tell you all about Lizzie & Matt, whose wedding we got to shoot back in September last year. First up was a visit to make sure everybody was getting on OK at home.

Lizzie was getting ready a stone's throw from the church, so we were able to have a walk over to meet the fellas arriving, and STILL go back to shoot the bridal party leaving home, and walking over to church in convoy.

We got a few discreet shots of the bridal party getting ready for the service, and then settled into our spot at the back of church for the ceremony.

How lovely it was then, that the Minister actually took the trouble to suggest that we come down to the front of church to get a few shots over his shoulder! Usually we prefer to intrude as little as possible, indeed usually, photographers are seemingly only barely tolerated by the clergy at weddings, so this was a lovely gesture, and it got us this lovely shot, thank you.

We then returned to the back of the church, where there was an excellent surreal 'child in deeley-boppers' photo opportunity. We took said opportunity :)

We then made our way outside to organise a few family photographs before taking Lizzie and Matt for a wander round on our photo walk. Below is our organised groomsman checking who's up next!

Above is one of my favourite shots from the day, lit with zoomed in flash to overpower the daylight slightly and toned down to a more muted, vintage style look.

After some documentary style shots, mostly of the children up to shenanigans, we organised a confetti throwing photograph.

We finished the day at Masa, an old Wesleyan Chapel converted to a swish restaurant and wine bar for the couple to settle in to their reception.

Congratulations Lizzie & Matt!
