Clearwell Castle wedding photographer. Mike & Kathryn

June 13th, 2011

Thanks for visiting the blog, I hope you enjoy the pictures today!

I've been looking forward to blogging this wedding since I covered it earlier this year.
Mike and Kathryn's wedding was quite an interesting one really, I'll explain.

They managed to organise the whole wedding in three weeks flat.
You could of walked in and just presumed that this wedding took the usual 12/18 months to organise. Nothing was missing from their day. Not a sausage.
In fact, their wedding rocked my socks off. The reason for said socks being rocked was down to their guests who, with their huge personalities just laughed all day.

I'll make a bit of a confession here.
Sometimes, I get so sucked into the day that I forget that I'm working, especially with the speeches. You wouldn't believe how hard I have to bite my tongue during the speeches, I'm fighting a constant battle against the heckler inside of me who just wants to get involved in the day!

Getting sucked into a couple's day certainly has its good points though.
You become a guest with a posh camera rather than "the photographer" and this allows people to relax around you. You can get closer to the action without people feeling intimidated

When I was looking through their pictures, some great memories came flooding back so I'm sure they dont feel like anything was missing.

Anyway, have a proper look through the pictures, and if you've got time, leave a little comment at the bottom.

    Ohh, how I understand you about the involvement on the day. It's hard to keep out and stay professional. But that's when the best photographs comes out I guess - when you are truly enjoying the day..
    Great photography, Joseph!

    Wow Joseph, again a fantastic set. I don't know why but the shot of the guy in the glasses waiting at the door really jumped out at me. Great expression. John

    Great as always Joseph. Has to be said my favourite is the comic strip of that woman looking at the photo on the camera. I actually 'lol'ed.
