Unposed natural wedding pictures of beautiful dresses

I photograph all sorts of different dresses. For me the two things matter. The form from a distance and the detail up close. Most photographers take a photo of the dress hanging up and include it in the documentary wedding album and I always try and do this. But the dress really sparkles when you are moving through lovely dappled light or in warm sun light at the end of the day.


Dyrham Wedding Katie and George, Sat 11 July

I welled up twice in one day : once in the service and then again in the Katie's fathers speech. Oh dear I must try not to shed any tears, but the service was very moving - thank you Tim! Katie looked utterly stunning as she arrived at the church in a cool vintage Rolls. George wore his formal paramedic uniform which looked rather good in some gritty shots of him and his ushers. Katie had made so many of the details at the party and the tables looked really beautiful. George was in charge of a mean playlist in the evening. I was lucky enough to sample the menu - a gorgeous rare sirloin with sauce vierge(I think) but no time for the Eton Mess- I was really pleased with a grabbed first dance photo, which I really hope summed up the emotion of the day.


Sherborne castle wedding -Mike and Becca

A sense of fun here. Do I dare set foot in the bathroom? I stepped in and the smile that resulted made a lovely pic. Mike and Becca got married at Sherborne Castle in May. The orangery is a perfect venue and the gardens, by Capability Brown made an amazing backdrop. I got a lovely black and white documentary wedding picture of Becca and her dad making her way to the ceremony - her heel got stuck in the grass on a lawn and there was a lot of hilarity as her dad tried to free her (succesfully!)
