The above photo was taken at the gorgeous Abbeywood Estate in Cheshire. Given that Abbeywood is on Chester Road (the same road I live on!) I’m surprised that this was my first time there. I do love to travel so I shoot weddings just about anywhere - something I amazingly lucky to do and extremely grateful for. But shooting a wedding on the same street as me…. well that’s just awesome!
Mandy and Paul married at Abbeywood on Sunday 10th March and the image above was during their first dance as husband and wife. I love getting creative at weddings, the bokeh balls (circles) were just tiny fairy lights held up close to my camera lens. I had a Godox AD200 on a light stand to the left of me which lit up the bride and groom and also their guests behind them. When I shoot an image, I am always looking for moment, light and composition. I love seeing the guests looking on in the background, I really like how the fairy lights draw the viewers eye into the couple and I love the richness of colour and pop of light from the left which adds depth to the scene.
If you’re planning a wedding at Abbeywood Estate and would like to talk about documentary wedding photography, please get in touch because I would love to hear all your plans!
