Wedding Image of the Week

This is the first in a new series of weekly blog posts showing off some favourite images from my weddings. It won’t just be my choice, though; I’ll also be asking all of the incredible couples I’ve worked for to select their favourites and briefly explain why they love it.

The first wedding, chosen at random, goes back to October 2022 to Shainie and Charles’ big day at The White Hart, Moorwood Moor.

The reason this is my favourite is simply the looks on the bridesmaid’s faces as they see the bride in her dress for the first time; we were planning the reveal to the father of the bride, but Shainie wanted to do the same with her bridesmaids. It took a little work to set up to ensure that I captured the moment; it was all worth it, though.

This image made it onto the same-day slideshow I had prepared for after the wedding breakfast and speeches; cue more tears (happy ones!) from Shainie when she saw this for the first time.

It was also part of a series of reaction photos of the bridesmaid’s reactions; another of my favourites is this one.

The bridesmaids stayed in the room to see the father of the bride’s reaction so as well as capturing his reaction, I also got their reaction to his reaction!

A big part of what I enjoy most about weddings is capturing the emotions and always being ready for it. The photo below is when Shainie and Charles were having their first dance. I’ll get plenty of pictures of the dance, but I’ll also look for reactions like this from Shainie’s parents and sisters.

The joy and excitement surrounding weddings fuel my passion for photography. I love capturing the intimate moments that make your day unique and special. Whether it’s the first look between the bride and groom, the tears of joy from parents and loved ones or the fun and laughter of the reception, I am there to capture every moment but remain as unobtrusive as possible.

Check back to this blog soon when I’ll update it with the Bride’s favourite photo of the day.
