A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of shooting for Dan & Matt.
Both guys were very nervous about being photographed when I first met them, at The Tea House in Ventnor. We had decided to do a pre-wedding shoot a couple of days before the big day, allowing us to get to know each other and for them to feel comfortable in front of the lens. I talked to them about the wedding itself and the casual, unstaged vibe they wanted from the images. We then set off for our first shoot.
The Pre-Wedding Shoot
We made the most of the misty day and the location we had chosen suited the weather. I didn’t ask them to pose, but rather went for a walk with them. We chatted and took the photos as we went along. As a result both guys look really relaxed in the photos and we are all very pleased with the results.
Matt & Dan chose to get married at East Dene, a beautiful Georgian manor house, in Bonchurch on the Isle of Wight. It was a beautiful spring day and light flowed into the ceremony room through the conservatory. The ceremony was romantic and emotional, with readings from close friends and family. After the ceremony Matt & Dan were taken to the beach in a gorgeous old car for champagne and we went up to the cliffs to take some photos of the newly-weds. The light was warm and golden and both men were relaxed, as well as simply delighted to be married.
The entire day was relaxed and fun for everyone and truly a pleasure to shoot. The resulting images speak of love, romance and connection.
I’d like to thank Matt & Dan for choosing me to shoot their wedding and all their friends and family for making me so welcome.
