Priston Mill Wedding Photojournalist. Ian and Lucy

April 26th, 2011

I hope you’ve been enjoy­ing your long weekend?
We’ve had incred­i­ble weath­er here and we’re hop­ing to con­tin­ue to make the most of it!

I’ve decid­ed to inject a few more per­son­al posts every now and then on here, so expect to see a few hol­i­day pic­tures and per­son­al work.
When prospec­tive cou­ples meet up with me for the first time, they often say how they feel like they already know me because I like to have a lit­tle chat on here, so now you’ll be able to see what I get up to when I’m not at a wed­ding. (yes, there are such occasions)
I’ve got some hol­i­days and engage­ment par­ties to blog about which will prob­a­bly do the blog no good but I know it won’t hurt.
Who knows? You might even see a pic­ture or two of me. Lucky you!

Today’s wed­ding is of Ian and Lucy, the cou­ple who I had blogged pre­vi­ous­ly with their engage­ment shoot in Bath cov­ered in snow.
I’ve enjoyed select­ing their pic­tures for this blog, I’ll try to explain…
As a mem­ber of the Wed­ding Pho­to­jour­nal­ist Asso­ci­a­tion, at wed­dings I put almost all of my effort into seek­ing out moments that are hap­pen­ing through­out the day. Some­times the moments are big and oth­er times they’re ever so subtle.
It’s easy to a cer­tain degree to walk around with a nice bit of equip­ment tak­ing pic­tures of the flow­ers, dress, shoes, cake, table dec­o­ra­tions and more flow­ers, and in fact I do take pic­tures of these things because the Bride has put a lot of thought into plan­ning these lit­tle details to make their day special.
To me, the most impor­tant things are the moments that are eas­i­ly for­got­ten about.

Ian and Lucy’s wed­ding was almost per­fect for them.
Why “almost”? With the heavy snow, some guests sim­ply could­n’t get to the wed­ding and the wed­ding was­n’t going to be a 200+ guest affair to start off with so things were very inti­mate. Per­haps the small­est wed­ding for me to date?  (Mak­ing up 1/44th of the guests can be a lit­tle scary to be honest)

Below is a very strict selec­tion of real moments that I loved cap­tur­ing. The major­i­ty of them aren’t ground­break­ing moments, instead they make up a hon­est rep­re­sen­ta­tion of a fan­tas­tic day that was all about the clos­est friends and family.
Sure there were some details, but I’m tak­ing a jump here by just show­ing you the peo­ple rather than the things.

Next wed­ding, I won’t go on so much about how I think moments are more impor­tant, I’ll keep quiet!

I hope you enjoy.
