I’ve had the oppurtunity to be the photographer for a couple of friend’s weddings recently. They were both very easy going and enjoyable events to attend, and it was great to be able to document the occasion.
Terry and Coral’s wedding was a bit unusual that they had 2 seperate photographers, myself and Jess from GoreJess Photography. We had both known the couple for years and it was interesting to see another view on how to get some of the shots as well as knowing that other angles will be covered.
Overall they were thrilled with the variety of images we were able to capture from the day. More of the shots can bee seen here.
The other new thing from this wedding was trying haggis for the first time. It was tastier than I thought it would be and the ritual and procession was great to watch. Any meal that comes into the room under armed guard deserves attention.
The other wedding was for a friend from Uni. The recurring themes were ‘Red Vs Blue’ and LEGO. This was held at the artistic commune at Montsalvat. A great location and no wonder that a lot of weddings are held there.
The main challenge for this wedding was the light, or lack of it. The ceremony started at dusk and the reception was mainly candle lit.
For the formal portraits I brought along some lights and umbrellas and was able to get some shots that they loved. More from the wedding can be seen here.
