It’s no secret but I absolutely love to photograph the details at a wedding. All those little things that the Bride & Groom have possibly taken months to decide on and which are there just for the one day.
To a degree, these photographs cannot be planned in advance and there is much to consider when recording such images. The lighting, depth of field, background and lens choice are all considerations.
On a wedding day, I start my photography with the bridal details – the dress hanging up, the shoes, flowers and perfume bottle. I always photograph the rings before the ceremony too, preferably on an invitation or something with connection to the venue. Throughout the day, the details continue… the wedding breakfast room looks perfect on arrival and is an important part in the story of the wedding day. The place names on each table, the favours and flowers. And then there is the cake.
To me, the details of a wedding day are an integral part of the story and a part that I love!!
I hope you enjoy this little selection…
