An image from a wedding at Thorpeness Country Club, shot in my usual documentary style and converted to black and white. Some images work better in colour, some in black and white, and in some cases either works well.
Here we have a symmetrical arrangement of two wedding guests posing for a photograph during the reception, and notice the facial symmetry as well as the similar dresses. I do like this image.
Those all important adjustments while there is still time – a shot of the best man sorting out his button hole in the pub, and converted to my favourite black and white look.
Health problems have unfortunately prevented me from photographing any weddings in 2014, so I’m looking forward to getting involved again this year.
Here’s an image from a wedding late in 2013, with one of the bridesmaids having some adjustments made to her hair. I love the expression on her face, and she’s concentrating so hard she isn’t reacting to the camera.
From a Suffolk coastal wedding last year, a captured moment during the wedding service. Quite tricky lighting and difficult to get everything just right with the camera, but I would rather risk a less than technically perfect shot to catch the right moment, with the bride just about to wipe away a tear.
I was pleased to be invited by the Thorpeness Hotel and Country Club, where I photographed a wedding in November, to submit a few images from the day that they might be able to use as part of a forthcoming article featuring the venue in the January 2014 edition of Suffolk Norfolk Life.
The picture that was used- see below – is of an antique suitcase used to display congratulations cards and similar at the reception with the guests in the background enjoying their food and drink. The other two pictures aren’t mine though…the November weather turned out rather dull and grey and not conducive to spending too long out of doors!
The Country Club was a lovely venue, close to the cliff top in Thorpeness, and I was glad to be a part of the bride and groom’s day.
