Natalie & Chris Wedding Recce at Newton

Natalie, Chris & I met last Sunday in the sub zero wind on the North East coast to chat through their wedding plans. The wedding is to be at Newton Hall and close by are the beautiful High & Low Newton beaches. We plan to shoot on the beach on the day of their wedding in mid February so we wanted to see what the light was like in the late afternoon and think through the practicalities of the cold & the tide.

The low tide and colourful winter sky added drama to the compositions as the couple practised being in front of my camera in the cold. Neither Chris nor Natalie like having their photograph taken so it was a good exercise to see how the shots would look, how comfortable they were being affectionate in front of the camera and it was an opportunity to see how I worked, all good preparation for the day.

If you are thinking of hiring a wedding photographer, see if they include a wedding ‘pre-shoot’ as its a great way to dispel any nerves you may have, to get to know each other better and its also an opportunity for the photographer to recce the venue. All my packages include a pre-shoot with retouched images supplied so please get in touch if you are planning your day.

Part three at last!!!

I have recently taken some time out and therefore been very quiet on the blog front due to moving house. The last box was unpacked yesterday and so the chaos dust has settled. The good news is I now have a garden, the bad news is need some good weather to try out my shiny new BBQ!

So now lets catch up on the next stages of Jo and Ben’s wedding back in May. There are three more story boards from the various stages of the day including our trip on the London bus, romantic couple shots, gorgeous kids and and some incidentals of the wedding breakfast details. Look out for the Playmobil princess and pirate!
