Every wedding has it’s own unique style and personality, most have a similar structure in the way they are organised around the main event.
I will shoot most of your lake district wedding photography in a documentary style, which means I capture everything in a natural fun way.
My overall aim is to create photographs that capture the look and essence of your day.

The Getting Ready
I will photograph your shoes, dress, flowers and anything sentimental and special. The fun and laughter with the bridesmaids and the tears
of joy when dad sees his daughter in her bridal gown for the first time.

 

The Ceremony and Reception
I will capture the ceremony as is happens. I am respectful and very discreet and will abide by the rules of your church or venue.
The reception is about laughter and enjoyment as everyone will be having a great time, I will be watching and photographing all of
this. This is also a good time for family and group shots. All the decorations, table plan, favours and all the personal details
will be documented at this time, it’s all in the details.

The Bride and Groom
My couples allow 20-30 minutes for some relaxed, natural shots of the love they share, in the beautiful surroundings of their venue
this is not a magazine shoot. I respectfully ask that we are on our own for this time. If the weather is good maybe a few shots as
the sun sets.

Speeches and Dancing
Speeches are a fantastic time to capture all the laughter and tears. Cake cutting is always covered wether it is after speeches or
before first dance. The first dance is all about following the dancers and capture the moments.
