I love photographing weddings and approach them in exactly the same way as I do my family photography sessions. I try and capture the action as it happens, always looking out for lovely moments on the wedding day. Rather than organising and posing everyone, I like to keep my wedding photography spontaneous. This means that I can produce some really natural wedding photography images, as in the one below.
Relaxed Bridal Preparations
I love this happy image from a recent wedding. The whole day was brilliant and full of joy and laughter. From the moment I met up with Jo, the bride-to-be, at the hairdressers, I knew it was going to be exactly the kind of wedding day I love to photograph. Relaxed, fun and full of wonderful emotions. Jo and her best friend were so friendly and welcoming, and I immediately felt comfortable in their company.
After photographing the bridal preparations, I drove to Hertford Register Office where the ceremony was to be held. Here I met Martin, the groom-to-be, and got some natural portraits of him with his best man and sons. After all their family and friends had settled in Jo arrived, looking absolutely stunning, and the wedding service began.
Natural Wedding Photography during the ceremony
It was such a beautiful ceremony with lots of laughs and a few tears too. I can’t quite remember what made Jo laugh at this point but I’m so happy I captured the moment. To me it sums up what a wedding day should be all about.
I hope you enjoy this wedding image as much as I do. A full blog post of Jo and Martin’s amazing wedding day will follow soon.
