We were recently asked to shoot a wedding with a reception at Barnsdale Hall.

Our brief was to be informal wherever possible, but to maintain our reputation for high quality images.

We hope you like this selection from the day.

A great introduction to the wedding

A great friendly crowd of family and friends – what more could a bride ask for?

A tender moment

No need to feel too posed or not relaxed when I am shooting – just enjoy!

The wedding ceremony was held at Oakham Castle in Rutland in the east Midlands – well known to us as leading wedding photographers in Oakham for over 25 years

The couple had asked for this to be  informal, relaxed wedding photography including the wedding reception at Greetham Valley Hotel

Great fun was had by all – and the gorgeous backdrop of Greetham Golf Club helped with the reportage style

OF course having such a lovely bride helped with the bridal portraits too!

December 27th saw a wedding at Oakham Castle followed by Normanton Park Hotel on the shores of Rutland Water.

Gemma and Richard were blessed with both fine weather and also snow left on the ground from a few days earlier.

As we set off for the photoshoot some visitors passed by complete with sledge – and we all thought the same thing!  The shot below has been accepted by a publication and we hope to see it in print soon headed “get me to the church on time”
Thank goodness for all those years spent working for newspapers armed with one camera, one lens and one flashgun expected to get great results regardless of the weather or the lighting.  Now that’s experience and knowledge you can’t just buy.
