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.

    Gor­geous images as always, what a great venue too. Love the way you cap­ture the emo­tions of the day.

    Beau­ti­ful images! You have cap­tured the emo­tions and spe­cial moments through­out the day.

    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.

    Fan­tas­tic work as ever Joseph!

    I love pho­tog­ra­phy that tells sto­ries. And when those sto­ries have humour and heart­felt emotion…
    Nice work, dude.
