Winter Wedding Photographer in Tetbury

It's interesting to find out why clients choose a wedding photographer and speaking with Purusha she informed me she searched for "winter wedding photographer in Tetbury".  Why 'winter' I asked?  Well apparently "it's a fine skill to be a winter wedding photographer" compared to just taking snaps at those summer weddings ;-)  or so I was informed.

Now whilst I say that slightly tongue in cheek, it is actually somewhat true.  Winter weddings are definitely full of different challenges to summer ones.  You have a very different quality of light, you have shorter days and the opportunity to drink champagne on the lawn doesn't often materialise.  It's not the latter that concerns me so, it's the quality of light and the requirement to look for good light.  (and no....I don't mean turn the light switch on.....I'm a photographer and I'm getting all arty here - just go with it!)

Seeing light is an art in itself, let alone concerning ones self with all the buttons on a camera.  In fact I'll often tell clients what you pay a good quality professional photographer for is not an album, not pretty packaging, but for the use of their eyes for the duration of your wedding.  Simply put, I see stuff that most people don't....and can't!  Call it documentary wedding photography, observational wedding photography, reportage or whatever....it doesn't need a label, the images should hopefully speak for themselves and if they resonate with you then I'm the right photographer for you - werd!

James & Purusha got married near Tetbury, Wiltshire in a village called Sherston at the Church of Holy Cross.  Do I need to tell you it was a cracking day weather wise?  Yep....blue sky, slight threat of a shower (my perfect combo for a lively wedding day) and a reasonable degree of warmth for a March wedding date.

The boys started early with a pub lunch at the Rattlebone Inn......once they'd got through the long 'to do' list.

I'd be smiling if I were the groom too - he got off lightly 'just getting married'.  The others had more to do than a day in the office.

Meanwhile the ladies (who I'd assumed would be pampering themselves) were sorting out last minute details in the weding marquee....and the slightly more concerning issue of power faliure :-( 

Every wedding needs cute bridesmaids & paige boys huh?  Cue these two.

Okay........the electrician is on site....now get some make-up on.
