After meeting with Jodie and Antony, I was really looking forward to their wedding day. We’d had an initial wedding consultation ,and several weeks later we attended Delapre Abbey for their pre wedding shoot. The weather hadn’t been great all month, come the wedding day, it was glorious. We were very lucky to be blessed with sun, blue skies and lovely fluffy clouds, not to mention a very hot day!
The couple chose Skylark Farm Wedding Venue for their ceremony and reception. The venue provides stunning images in the countryside. The exclusive wedding venue, with its breathtaking views and elegant charm, is a perfect backdrop for any wedding. The venue is romantic, with fun at the forefront.
The wedding was the first time that I’d shot at this venue. I have to say it is a fabulous venue. Everything seems to have been covered. Children can happily play in the grounds, there’s a zip wire, swings and climbing frame. Many of the adults found their inner child too. They happily played with the giant Jenga, connect 4, swings, and yes, the zip wire!
Antony and Jodie’s wish was for a relaxed fun filled wedding, where all could enjoy themselves came true. The couple, and their guests had fun through out the day, being able to relax completely, knowing that the staff had everything in hand. There was also piece of mind that the children could play very safely.
Capturing great photographs with such good weather and venue was easy. I had mainly left the couple to enjoy their wedding, snatching them for a few shots here and there. I like to work unobtrusiveley, and allow the day to flow. The couple preferred this style of shooting, but we also found time for a few posed images, and family shots. The groups shots can be tiresome for some. I find it’s usually a good time for some banter with the guests.
I left the venue around 9.30pm, leaving many of them flaunting the dance floor, or posing in the photo booth! I on the other hand was looking forward to putting my feet up!
