Bride and Groom dancing to ceilidh band

I remember being told that Andrew the groom hated the thought of being the centre of attention and being photographed. They even didn’t have a formal first dance to open the dance floor, instead choosing to have everyone on the dance floor from the start, as their ceilidh band played.

This image for me tells more of the story of the fun, relaxed wedding they had with their family and friends, when allowed to just be themselves with a documentary style of coverage.

Bridesmaid drinking before the wedding

This tells the story of what can happen in the morning when the maids get a bit nervous before the wedding day.

I’d over heard them talking behind me about having a quick drink before the wedding. Me imagining perhaps a cup of tea, or at the most a small glass of champagne! Oh how naive I was!! When I turn round this is what I saw and quickly had to capture this moment!

Tearful bride, groom, mother of bride and sister of groom, during the speeches

This wedding was full of emotions, with many tears flowing all round.

Words aren’t needed to explain what’s happening here. Just another touching storytelling image from the speeches as the groom listens to his mother and sister.

Bride and groom cutting cake at Weston Park wedding

I’ve shot a few weddings at Weston Park and always find the grand surroundings a pleasure to record. Each room has it’s own character to it, making for a memorable experience for anyone.

My aim here was to not just capture a simple cake cutting, but to show their guests enjoying the experience, along with the surroundings to match their wedding.

What Is a Documentary Wedding Photographer?

This is an often asked question. In simple terms it means being an observer and recorder of your wedding, with little interference. If you’re familiar with Star Trek, think of it in terms of The Temporal Prime Directive: To visit, to watch, not to interfer and to bring back a record.
