Bristol wedding photographer

The Clifton Club House - P & U Wedding

Peter and Uma first reached out to me in early 2018 and we began quickly began chatting about their plans for their special day in September. They kindly invited me into their home where i met them both for the first time and we discussed what they were looking for as-well as talking about how I like to shoot to ensure the best experience for them on the day!

After speaking with peter and Uma they said that they would be more interested in was the candid and non posed style if documentary photography and that whilst they still did want the classic bride and groom posed shots which is great as my style when shooting is very relaxed and non invasive meaning they can almost forget about the camera at times and really enjoy the day.

The wedding was booked for the 8th of September and it was taking place at the Clifton Club House in Clifton, Bristol and after getting the details off Peter and Uma, I got in touch in Uma and Peters wedding manager Sarah and arranged a date to visit the venue and chat with her about how the day was planned. This was great as it allowed me to ensure I was sure of when I could do my group shots and ensure that I could be ready to capture every key moment on the day.

The day went great, I arrived at 1 o’clock an hour before the guests arrived so that I could get some nice shots of the wedding preparations and I was there shooting until about 11:30. it was a pleasure to meet and cant with all the guests and to be a part of Uma and Peters special day.

Below are some of the best shots from the day! Enjoy

V + C Wedding 28th May 2017

Vickie and Clive first reached out to me in early February regarding their wedding details. Whilst I knew it would be a tough job to take on my first official wedding, I was eager to get started. I first met Vickie and Clive in March where we met and chatted over a coffee.

- Quick Tip - 

Know what you know/don't and be prepared for the day. Scout out the location before hand and contact other photographers with questions.

Knowing this would be my first official wedding, of course, made me nervous as I had only had limited wedding experiences, however, I did everything possible to prepare myself and gain tips from other wedding photographers to make sure felt confident on the day. 

- The Wedding Day -

I was only needed for about 4/5hours on the day but ended up being there a bit longer as I wanted to arrive a bit earlier to be ready. Having arrived at 2, I finished shooting at about 8/9 and overall the day went very smoothly. Having spoken with Vickie and Clive before hand, they told me, and I got the impression that the images they wanted were to be more natural and candid so throughout the day I tried to get the posed images for groups and of Vickie and Clive done first so I could focus more on what they wanted.

Below is a gallery with some of the best images from the day!

- What Ive Learnt Overall - 

Overall, I am very happy with the images I took but here are a few things I learnt and will take on into future events! 

- Don't shoot under 1/250th of a second with a telephoto lens as it is not sharp 

- Be assertive and reassuring when directing big large groups

- Don't be afraid to use flash in certain situations.

Do you have a wedding coming up soon? Id love to be a part and hear more! Lets chat!
