Wedding at Manor House Hotel, Moreton-In-Marsh

For my last wedding of October I was back at Manor House Hotel, Moreton-In-Marsh for the wedding of Jonny & Caroline.  It was a crisp bright autumnal day, with a few leaves still on the trees and golden light....pretty much perfect weather.

On this occasion chair ties have got a whole photo to themselves.  Great light makes a photo....even for the simplest of things.

There were several kids at the wedding, these two I believe are Jonny's sisters kids....hanging out with granddad.

Entertainment for children at weddings is always high priority on any parents packing list.  ANYTHING to keep them quiet during the ceremony is a must! 

Jonny: the cat that got the cream :-)

The wedding reception drinks were served inside at Manor House Hotel, but guests also had exclusive use of the hotel and with fine weather could enjoy some time outside in the sunshine too.

I guess everyone got a shot of this.

A few wedding details to give a flavour of the day.

The couple portraits in the hotel gardens had a very autumnal feel. 

The Manor House Hotel at night.  It's great to be around just after dusk to take advantage of this interesting light.

Jonny & his best man are VW petrol heads so speeches had a small focus around the VW magazine they were featured in.  Boys will be boys!

North Scotland landscape photography

Landscape photography isn't really my bag, but after my second trip to Scotland, I'm beginning to rather like it.  The Scottish highlands have become the annual trip for me and a few fellow professional photographer friends.....and this year we hit the far North.

Day one was spent in the somewhat exposed Rua Reidh Lighthouse on the west coast....with 75mph gusting winds it certainly whipped up a storm.  Following a nights stay in the hostel there we then headed up to Durness (the most Northerly place on the UK mainland) for some serious costal walks including an unintentional dip in the sea by one of our fellow photographers - with camera and iphone too :-(

All up it was a great week, (with typically bad scottish weather)....but this did mean plenty of rainbows, some seriously stormy seas, moody skies and a full on test for my waterproof gear!
