Wedding Photography – Marriot Hotel, Peterborough

 

Jake and Beki’s wedding photography had been booked in my diary over 2 years in advance so it was wonderful when their wedding day finally arrived.  They chose The Marriot Hotel in Peterborough as the location for their day, with it’s beautiful gardens this hotel makes a lovely setting for a wedding.

Whilst Beki and her bridesmaids prepared for the day, emotions were a little crazy with bets on who would cry first, I think Beki was the winner.  Emotions continued to run high throughout the day with tears from the father or the bride, the groom and Maid of Honour all being noted and captured on camera as part of the couples wedding photography collection.   I think the speeches finished everyone off (including me) with noticeable some of the best I’ve heard (and I’ve sat through a lot of wedding speeches).

The wonderful summer we have been experiencing this year did not disappoint and the sun shone bright throughout the day meaning the lovely gardens were taken full advantage of for some fun garden games during the reception.  The wonderful weather also allowed us to capture some wonderful wedding photography in the gardens,  a combination of candid and posed photos were captured throughout the day.

I would especially like to thank Mr and Mrs Mckenzie for trusting me when I suggested that they should request that guests took no photos when they left the ceremony or during the first dance.   The professional Wedding Photography is noticeable improved by the absence of phones and cameras, instead these are replaced with smiling emotional guests watching the happy couple.    Beki and Jake, thank you for choosing me to be your wedding photographer, here is your wedding day story.

Lincolnshire wedding photographer

 

Danielle and Mark have been clients of mine for a number of years.  I have had the honour of watching their 3 beautiful boys grow up and have provided their Family photography throughout.  When an existing client asks you to be their wedding photographer it is something extra special as you know that they are truly happy with the service and quality of work you deliver.

Mr and Mrs Burton chose to marry at Whaplode Church and enjoyed a reception at Whaplode Manor.  It was wonderful to capture a wedding in my local village church, the first I have had the privilege of doing since moving to Whaplode 18 months ago.  It really is a beautiful church.

The wedding ceremony was one of the most emotional I have captured to date, with Mark being the first in tears, quickly followed by Danielle and no doubt many of the guests.  Tears truly were a theme of the day with another round following during the heartfelt speeches later in the evening.  So much laughter throughout the day too, especially when the cheeky flowergirl decided to give each of the groomsman a smack on the bum for flashing their pants!

The amazingly hot summer we are experiencing this year ensured that Danielle and Mark had a gloriously sunny wedding and allowed us to make use of the amazing gardens both at Whaplode Church and Whaplode Manor to create both formal and natural wedding photography for them to treasure in years to come.

Thank you to Mr and Mrs Burton and all their guests for making me feel so welcome,  Here is a little preview of your wedding photography collection which will follow shortly.

When James and Liene first came to chat to me about their wedding day, I instantly warmed to their bubbly fun personalities and knew it would be a wedding day to remember. They had chosen to have a very intimate wedding ceremony with only 10 guests at the service and wedding breakfast with many more joining them for the evening celebrations. This is the smallest ceremony I have photographed to date and it was a true honour to be a part of it.

Their wedding took place on what was undoubtedly the coldest day of the 2017! Sub zero conditions coupled with a beautiful blue sky created a challenging yet beautiful backdrop for the wedding photographs at the Ship Inn near Spalding and at the extra special spot that the couple had found for us to detour too for special seasonal photographs in a field of Christmas trees.

    How to get the best from your Wedding Photography

    How to get the best from your Wedding Photography

    Top Tips for getting the best from your wedding photographer

    3rd October 2017
    1. If you are having your hair and bridal makeup done at home, consider carefully the room that you choose for this. A bright and airy room will allow the best light for the MUA and photographer to work in. Ideally be seated close to a window but not with your back or front directly facing the it.
    2. Ensure work surfaces are clutter free and tidy. Whilst your photographer will move distracting items during shots that are set up and staged, this is not possible while capturing natural shots, as they happen so ensuring the area is clean and tidy ahead of the day will help to prevent your final images from having distracting items within them.
    3. If you have space, hang your dress somewhere nice (consider the hanger too) before you are ready to put it on. The photographer can get shots of the bridal preparations with the dress in the background. This will help to tell the story and gives context to the photos.
    4. Generally the photographer will want to photograph dresses, shoes, jewellery, perfume, button holes, bouquet, garter and rings (if they are at the location). Ensure you have gathered all the items your photographer will want, for detail shots ahead of their arrival. This will mean they are not interrupting you while you are getting ready asking for key items.
    5. My full day packages include Bridal preparation as standard. As the boys usually get ready elsewhere this gets over looked. Consider booking a package that includes a 2nd photographer to allow groomsman preparation to be captured too.
    6. Lots of Brides get into their dress at the last minute, but if time allows its helpful to be ready 20 minutes or so before your car is due to depart. This allows a little time for you to gather your thoughts and time for your photographer to capture some lovely photos of the girls all dressed up. If you intend to have these photos in your garden, then ensure the garden is clean and tidy too.
    7. On your wedding day, everything will take longer than you think, from getting your hair done to getting dressed. And mishaps will happen (trust me!) — from misplaced vows to terrible traffic — so set a strict schedule that leaves extra time to deal with delays without cutting into your photography session.
    8. Remember to keep your head up and look forward during key moments, such as walking down the aisle or during confetti throwing. The emotion on your face during these moments will add to the memories and storytelling element of your wedding album.
    9. It is important to discuss a list of key shots with your photographer. I always plan a meeting with my Bride and Groom a few weeks ahead of the big day to discuss this. If there are key moments, you want captured make sure they know. For example, many brides want a picture of their Dad’s reaction when he sees her in the dress for the first time. Try to keep the list of formal group shots to under ten. Although these photos are important, neither you nor your guests will want to stand around for ages while these are done. After all everyone is there to celebrate with you.
    and finally

    10. Just Enjoy the Day. Try not to worry about the little things, like if it starts to rain or the little page boy refuses to join in the family photo. Your photographer will take care of it and generally has a trick up their sleeve. If you are worrying about the little things and watching the camera, it won’t capture the moments, you laughing with your friends or sharing a secret look with your new husband / wife. Let your photographer keep you on schedule and capture the day as it unfolds.

      Mr and Mrs Krohnen Wedding Photography Story

      Mr and Mrs Krohnen Wedding Photography Story

      Louth Wedding Storytelling Photography

      Mr and Mrs Krohnen

      27th September 2017
      Danni and Ash booked me to be their wedding photographer back in 2016. They specifically wanted lots of relaxed reportage wedding photos telling the story of their day, so I set about ensuring that I captured lots of moments throughout the day as well as ensuring that more formal parts of the photography were undertaken in a manner that created emotive images showing the love that they clearly share.
      As their wedding day neared I started to panic a little as it became apparent that my reliable little car was on its last legs and I worried that it would not make the journey to Louth for their special day!  Not to be deterred and to ensure that I did not encounter hiccups on the wedding day I begged the garage that was supplying my new car to allow me to have it a couple of days early.   All well and good except that collecting the car the day before meant I was still unsure of the controls, this created much amusement for the newlyweds when it came to us leaving the church to head to the reception venue.  Whilst they waited in the lovely VW camper van for me to pull away they were highly entertained as I struggled to get my wing mirrors to return to the outward position for driving!

      A special mention needs to go to Danni’s Mum who made the unique bouquets and also to Danni’s cousin who is an amazing seamstress and made the bridesmaids dresses and Danni’s stunning wedding dress.  I wonder how many hours she spent sewing on sequins?

      Mr and Mrs Krohnen married at the local church close to their home and enjoyed a fun filled reception at the local golf club.   They were surrounded by wonderful family and friends but, sadly the Groom’s best man was unable to make it back from abroad to attend the wedding, however his presence was still evident in the fantastic video speech he was able to provide for his 2nd in command to play.
      Danni and Ash truly are a perfect match and I wish them well for a long and happy marriage.  Thank you for choosing me to capture your wedding day.
