It was lovely to take a trip down to leafy Surrey to photograph the wedding of Katie & James Brookes which was held at the famous Wentworth Club
Golf Course in Virginia Water, Surrey at the end of January although a bit of a shock temperature-wise after returning from sunny and hot South Africa a couple of weeks earlier……!!
Both James & Katie and their families were great fun to photograph and despite the bitter cold it was a lovely sunny and bright day. Katie was totally up for lots of photos outside, despite the cold and despite wearing a strapless gown by Benjamin Roberts, and we set off down to the beautiful lake with it’s splendid fountains for some lovely signature shots of the couple in the late afternoon light. I have to admit it’s the first time I have driven a Golf Buggy myself and after one near-miss of putting it into DRIVE rather than REVERSE whilst facing the lake all ended well without mishap!.
Big thanks to fellow photographer Claire who was assisting me on the wedding whilst Michelle my usual assistant was off shooting lions (with her camera!!) in South Africa, she did a great job.
I took my big Crombie coat which came in very useful to keep Katie warn between the photographs and to stop her shivering her lovely bouquet to pieces.
There was a lovely staircase which I wanted to capture some more creative shots of Katie that I could go to town on in Photoshop afterwards, I have attached one of my favourites here.
Lovely couple, lovely wedding and great reception complete with petit chocolates being delivered with the after dinner coffees complete with billowing clouds of dry ice, very cool (literally!). Katie and James are having a gorgeous Queensberry Album to display their chosen shots so I am really looking forward to designing it with them.
