Wedding photography can be really stressful but it is also immensely rewarding. It is a huge honour to be involved in such an important and intimate day. As a consequence, I think I get as nervous and excited as the bride. But nerves are a good thing for photographers. They make us alert and quick so we don’t miss a thing.
One of my favourite moments of the day, is just before the bride leaves for the church. This quiet before the storm is the perfect time to take a beautiful portrait of the bride. I took this portrait of Rose, in a Stuart Parvin wedding dress, holding a Tattie Rose bouquet, in a north facing drawing room. I find north facing light softer and leaves lovely dark backdrops. The result is a timeless stunning portrait of a bride, bursting with anticipation and excitement of the day ahead. The epitome of beauty.
Whilst I photograph the whole day in colour, I invariably convert all my favourite portraits of the bride and groom into black and white. I feel this captures the romance and mood of the day so much more effectively.
