Expectant groom before bride's arrival at Park Hall Farm wedding

Location: Park Hall Farm

Sometimes I’m only allowed at the back of the ceremony, but this is my favourite position to get the groom’s expectant expression as he waits for the arrival of his bride. I just love the look on this groom’s face that tells the whole story of what’s going through his mind while waiting.

Tearful groom, bride and mother of groom during the speeches

Location: Broadoaks Country House

This was a very emotional part of the day for this wedding as the groom’s father had passed away and was naturally missed by his whole family. As the groom mentioned his father in his speech, he started to well up which set of his mother and bride. Tender moments like this are part of the storytelling of a wedding day.

This photo is the other end of the emotionally scale from the previous image. To finish of their wedding day, the bride and groom arranged for a sparkler send off and I managed to capture the joyful ending of their fabulous wedding day celebrations

This first dance routine had been meticulously rehearsed for many months, and it couldn’t have gone better. This was the ending pose that captured their spirited routine.

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.
