I photographed Ollie and Hiroko’s wedding in the gorgeous Sussex village of Ditchling in March this year. The church was poorly lit and I was forbidden from using any form of lighting so I was forced to take my camera’s low-light capabilities into new territory. I was relieved and delighted that the resulting pics came out looking really rather nice indeed.
My friend Jen (who also happens to be the graphics genius who designed my website) married Andrew at the Buckinghamshire Golf Club last July. I arrived there bright and early to capture the bridal preparations.
Then came the ceremony:
The grounds of the golf club then provided a beautiful backdrop for some formal photos:
The remainder of the day played out mostly in the clubhouse:
About a year ago I photographed the wedding of Lekan and Grace. The ceremony took place at St Paul’s Church in Clapham and then moved on to the Memon Centre in Balham.
My day started off with a short bus ride from my flat in Stockwell to Grace’s parents’ house just of Clapham High street so that I could get some shots of Grace and her bridesmaids preparing for the day ahead:
I then headed on to the church in time for Grace’s arrival and entrance:
Due to some unfortunate weather, we had to rely on the back-up plan of taking formal group and couple photos in the church itself as opposed to some nearby gardens.
After the group shots were complete we all moved on to the Memon Centre:
I’m Will Strange and I’ve been photographing weddings for a good couple of years now. I’ve have the pleasure of shooting about 20 weddings in that time and have sampled almost as many cakes!
My preferred style of photography is the fly-on-the-wall style – I think the wedding mags call it ‘contemporary’ or ‘reportage’. I strongly believe that capturing a wedding day in its entirety shouldn’t just be about the big events (first dance, ring exchange, formal photography etc) but also the more subtle nuances of the big day.
Here’s a little ‘best of’…
