A winter wedding at Belvoir Castle
Isobel and Joe were never going to have a ‘traditional’ wedding. From the first meeting with them it was obvious they had lots of plans and their natural creativity was going to be a running theme throughout the day.
Joe is a really talented artist, who has worked on projects with people like Tim Burton, so when Isobel told me that he was making the cake as a piece of art I knew it would be pretty special. It really didn’t disappoint. The detail and work that Joe had put into the decoration was incredible, and a real talking point at the wedding.
Truly a Leicestershire wedding
Throughout the day there was a really dedication to local creative talent. Isobel is passionate about the local musical talent at Loughborough University, and she had arranged for a number of acts to be involved on the day, from choirs, to a barbershop quartet, and ending with a fantastic swing band in the evening. The music throughout the day was a real theme, and it was fantastic to be surrounded by.
I love weddings that are personal and unique to the couple; weddings that don’t care about the rules of what they are ‘supposed’ to do, but instead concentrate on how they want the day to be, and how they want to celebrate their relationship and the commitment they are making to each other.
Photographing a Winter Wedding
I find winter weddings so interesting to photograph. They have their own unique set of challenges and opportunities, and can be completely different to weddings at other times of the year. With the such limited sunlight, the majority of a winter wedding is photographed in low light conditions. This can often be daunting for some photographers, but it’s something that I really love. I find there are so many opportunities to create photographs that have a romantic mood, often with candles and lanterns being the main lighting.
