Every wedding has it’s own unique moments, it’s own story and way it will be remembered; the bride’s beautiful dress, the moving speeches, the ushers forgetting the buttonholes, Bestman forgetting the rings, the bride getting dropped during her first dance, the Bestman having a flat tyre, the vicar getting the brides name wrong in the ceremony. These all make your wedding special and personal to you (and ones we’ve experienced first hand!). But if you’re already married, would you change anything from your day?
Our day started at 4am, up showered and dressed with the all important coffee in hand ready to meet our friends, Ben and Katie, for a 6am Check-in at Bristol Airport. With our e-tickets and passports in hand it all got very real when we sailed through check-in (I really like flying with only hand luggage!) and the excitement of going to a winter wonderland to see Santa in his actual home in Lapland really started to kick in! We went through the ever necessary security checks – which really is a more of a rigmarole for photographers than the average traveler, having to take out the cameras, lenses and iPad (on which I’m writing this blog on the flight home with everyone else on the plane asleep). Even with all the kit out the bag I always seem to set the scanners off 9 times out of 10 (I will never forget my public strip search in Dubai International when we flew back from a wedding in Malaysia…all shades of dignity left, embarrassed on the floor).
We had to decide what camera equipment for the Lapland Trip we needed. Obviously a bit of a photographic opportunity which couldn’t be wasted but what should we take that will cope with the temperatures over there?
Last month we were asked by Arun Sharma if we could cover some Indian wedding celebrations for his brother, Nitin, the Groom who lives in Bridgwater but who was getting married up in Birmingham. Specifically we covered three very different events of the Indian Wedding all at Nitin’s parents home in Bridgwater; A party on the Friday night called the Ladies Sangeet and two religious ceremonies primarily conducted in Sanskrit and Punjabi – the Sainth Ceremony on Saturday afternoon and the Sehra Bandi (Sehrabandi) Ceremony on the Sunday morning of the wedding. We managed to fit all that was required of us into an already full and very busy weekend of meetings and shoots in the studio. Continue reading »
The night sky has always interested me. I can spend hours outside on a clear night looking up at the heavens. It makes you feel very humble, ridiculously small and insignificant! Well it does to me anyway.
Fireworks are amazing, beautiful and spectacular to watch (if you like fireworks that is…if you don’t …well you might want to stop reading now because, as the title might suggest, this whole post is dedicated to them).
Here’s a few shots from this years Bridgwater Firework Display at St. Matthew’s Field (taken from Northfield for anyone local).
