It’s not hard to provide stunning wedding photography when you are blessed with a beautiful bride. Even easier when she is dressed in one of the most incredible wedding dresses I’ve ever seen. Bearing in mind I’ve been a leading wedding photographer in the UK for nearly 20 years, I’ve seen quite a few! The dress was made by the insanely talented Fiona Clare Couture.
Whilst I take a mixture of colour and black & white photos of the whole day, I generally prefer black and white for the ‘classic’ portraits such as this. I find colour too distracting. You end up studying the colours of the flowers, or wallpaper etc. Black and white wedding portrait photography is timeless, classic and captures the mood of the day so much more effectively. Where possible, I also love to work with natural light which I find much softer. It also enables me to work really fast, which is one of the key skills for a wedding photographer.
I took this portrait just before leaving for Sherborne Abbey. We only had a few minutes to spare. But long enough to lay out her lace coat in a perfect circle. I love how the tiara mirrors this circle.
