James & Polly got married at Ettington Park

August 15th, 2012

Hooray for James and Pol­ly, the own­ers of the biggest smiles known to mankind!
Not only did they have the best smiles, but they also had Etting­ton Park in Strat­ford upon Avon as their wed­ding venue.
I felt like Mr Car­son from Down­ton Abbey walk­ing around the hall­ways of this incred­i­ble building!

I loved this wed­ding and as usu­al, I cov­ered the day in an almost entire­ly pho­to­jour­nal­is­tic man­ner, so enjoy the moments that actu­al­ly happened.

For the pho­tog­ra­phers out there: Dur­ing the bridal prep, I realised that I had for­got­ten my 85mm, my longest lens. This was the first wed­ding I’ve cov­ered with 50mm as my longest focal length. Being close to the action beats zoom­ing in from the oth­er side of the room any day for me!

    What a beau­ti­ful wed­ding! I espe­cial­ly like all the bridal prep shots & all those smiles!

    Again, amaz­ing atten­tion to all the ‘moments inbe­tween’ Joseph. No need for that 85mm!!!

    Awe­some, awe­some doc­u­men­tary work!! Your work is brilliant.

    Down­ton Abbey is right! This whole day looks amaz­ing, both ele­gant and fun!

    Wow, you’re work just gets bet­ter and bet­ter! It also looks incred­i­ble on the new website!

    The shot peek­ing through the door­way to the bride is my fav from this Joseph. Great work as ever, I love Etting­ton Park Hotel!

    Always a plea­sure to look through your skilled work Joe­sph, I too love that glint of an image of the bride through the doors.

    So many strong images here, the library pro­vides a super back­drop for the speeches
