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!

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

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