Wedding! Nathan and Kate at Hotel Du Vin, Birmingham.

May 17th, 2010

Now for the wedding of a super smoking-hot couple from the Midlands.
Yes, there is such a thing.
Nathan and Kate got married at the Kingdom Hall in Cradley Heath and then went onto Hotel Du Vin in Birmingham.
I loved shooting there as the light all around was gorgeous.
Having the reception smack in the middle of the city was a pleasure, I don't believe I've ever had that privilege.

The great thing about shooting in the city is that in the day, the sun bounces off the windows and metals creating gorgeous spots of light, and in the evening, all the offices and car parks still have their lights on making for some beautiful yet sometimes challenging lighting. I was in my element.
Please enjoy the pictures!

Nathan was as relaxed as anything I've ever seen.

Nathan had his Dad as his best man. He was just another one of the boys.
Here's the Bride, doesn't she look amazing? And that veil? She made it herself. So creative!
Mum and Dad

It's always a pleasure to see the groom's face as he watches his Bride walk down the aisle.

A gorgeous day for a wedding!

Oversized bouquets for ushers are now officially "in". You heard it here first!

Oh, Kate also made her bouquet herself too!

Inside, good light was hard to find but was amazing once I found it.

Yes, this little boy really was that cute.

We popped out for a few minutes whilst I had a raging headache to get some special portraits.

Bubbles never boring whatever your age...

...or whatever form they come in!

Kate's father's speech was hilarious! I think with all these speeches I hear each weekend, I'm going live a long life!

Here come the boys. I love that city light, and also how Nathan's Dad is clutching onto his Son.

Nathan and Kate hired a juke box for their evening reception. Clearly, this presented the guests with some extremely difficult decisions.

Me: So Suzzie, how long have you been friends with Kate?
Suzzie: Urrr, she's my sister?
Me: Sure...

Congratulations Nathan and Kate, and thank you a million times over for allowing me to be with you all day.
Enjoy your lives together.

    Oh my, they ARE smoking hot. I love your last two in particular and the one of her teary-eyed during the speeches. I've never seen a Kingdom-hall wedding captured with such style. Lovely work, Joseph!

    Beautiful work as ever Joseph. Kate and Nathan certainly do look the business and your framing of their wedding day story really brings to life how joyous an event it must have been.

    Love this shoot. The shot of her blusher with really shallow depth of field is awesome! The shot of the guys is also fantastic. Was that not lit? It's so good!
