12/07/10Wedding Photography at Clandon Park
Ja and Roger, Clandon Park, 8th May 2010.
‘It’s like rain on your wedding day’ – so said Alanis many years ago, but she needn’t have worried if she’d chosen the right venue.
After so many weeks of sunshine it’s easy to forget it does sometimes rain in this country but at a venue like Clandon park near Guildford it’s far from the end of the world. Ja and Roger wanted informal reportage shots, starting with the bride getting ready.
The advantages of wedding photography in the digital age
One of the great gains of the digital era is low light photography without flash, making atmospheric shots possible whatever the weather. I’ve chosen the pictures for the blog to show what is achievable even when you can’t go outside and even when there’s no flash photography allowed during the ceremony.
The pictures also show that it’s people and their emotions that make the day, not the weather.
We were able to use the portico at Clandon for family shots during a lull in the weather – the bride, groom and their families stayed dry even if the photographer got soggy – and this should be an important consideration in venue choice if formal pictures are a priority. The pictures also show that it’s people and their emotions that make the day, not the weather.
Thank you to Ja and Roger for their reaction: I have to thank you…everyone including myself looks amazing!
