Wedding! Ben and Selena

September 15th, 2008

Some­times an oppor­tu­ni­ty comes along that you just have to take up.
In this case, a last minute wed­ding, so no Engage­ment shoot, I did­n’t even know what they looked like!
I was scared.
Turns out I made the right move.

This was one of the most beau­ti­ful and nat­ur­al wed­dings I’ve ever shot.
It just screamed of style, but with­out look­ing unre­al or imper­son­al, It was almost like Ben and Sele­na read my last post, and quick­ly arranged their day around my ideas and suggestions!

The wed­ding was in Bish­opsworth, Bris­tol and the recep­tion was at Chubbs farm, Axmin­ster, Devon.
The Farm­house is owned by a com­pa­ny called rur­al retreats who also own lots of oth­er incred­i­ble prop­er­ties across the Britain and Ireland.

Check out these pic­tures and tell me what you think!

DSC_2751I loved Ben and his best mans Ties.
I took far too many pic­tures of them!

DSC_2799All the ush­ers had real­ly infec­tious laughs.

DSC_2842Ben looked so pleased when he saw Sele­na walk down the aisle.

DSC_3372Maybe not… The theme for this pic­ture was “vio­lence” and incase you’re won­der­ing, the ush­er on the far right was hav­ing vio­lent thoughts. You have been warned…

Thanks allot Ben and Sele­na for let­ting me be there on your spe­cial day. I hon­est­ly loved every minute.
Ben, your ush­ers, well, they’re just some­thing else. =)

    You are yet again the don! i have been look­ing at these shots for some time now and real­ly like them, your style is fresh and light. it is very dif­fer­ent to mine but feel it cap­tures every moment very well. it was­n’t a hard wed­ding to shot but that should under esti­mate how good your crafts­man­ship is. i have seen a not­i­ca­ble dif­fer­ence in your work recent­ly and it is real­ly high stan­dard now mate. one day i’ll be as good… maybe!
