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.

    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!

    Smok­ing hot cou­ple is right. Lucky you to get them in front of your cam­era! She looks like she was an amaz­ing bride to work with, I LOVE her style, her veil, her dress, every­thing :) That last image is fabulous.
