Part two of this wonderful, summer wedding of Nadine and Matthew. I think it was the brightest day I’ve ever got to photograph on. It was really hot, I couldn’t help but feel a tiny bit sorry for the groom and ushers in 3 pieces suits, they were melting! The blue sky was absolutely amazing, I generally love bright, high key photography so this scenario was with no doubt my dream one.
I can’t help but call this wedding ‘a candy wedding’ in my head. Fuchsia + baby pink colour scheme together with super cute decorations and summer sunlight made a great base for the ‘candy like’ photographs – full of sweet tones, bright and colourful. Kids totally rocked the day as well; how beautiful the three flower girls and two page boys looked! Bouncy castle arranged for them at the bottom of the hill kept them well occupied for most of the day, I guess that’s a good tip for couples with little children! In the moment of boredom one of the boys put his whole head into the fountain… it was hot, basically…not sure what else would have happened if there was no activity arranged for the little ones.
The atmosphere of the day was very cheerful, merry and loud. Guests were obviously enjoying themselves and isn’t that the whole point of the wedding day?
I totally loved bride and groom’s attitude to photographs. Again I was lucky with ‘yes, we’ll do whatever you suggest’. Together with Jaro we cleared the downstairs of the New House Hotel (part of the lounge area) of all the furniture to get those bay window shots – I think it was well worth it! Light in there was just divine. Nadine – well, you can all see, looked just stunning and went this extra mile with being patient, taking suggestions on board and posing for us. The fact she didn’t mind lying down in the high grass with all the bugs (potentially) jumping all over her – respect for that! I’d say it’s a rare attitude as brides are usually very protective about the dress and even walking quite often becomes a problem (which I totally understand, it’s all down to the character, shape of the dress etc…). Admittedly our walk across the wild field cost us all quite a few horsefly bites but I believe paid off in photographs.
Congratulations to the newly weds, they totally rocked their candy wedding. I wish all my clients this sort of perfect weather as well as similar love’n'fun atmosphere in the summer air. x x
