USA Barn wedding, Maine

US barn wedding celebration, Maine.

Dana and Norman were married at an intimate and private ceremony with just their immediate families, many months before their wedding celebration. With families and friends coming from all over the world, their big wedding celebration was a much bigger logistical event, with a long weekend of partying.

A perfect proposal

How those in the know do it....

I came across this lovely article in the Huffington Post. Sonja and Stefan run Montechristo Travel - planning destination weddings from the US. Sonja planned her perfect proposal to take place in Prague, with their photographer on hand to do the bis.

A great story with fantastic photographs - read her blog here.

There is also a nice quote to illustrate something I have been thinking a lot about; the concept of reportage, documentary and photojournalism and how much of a skive that is. Pictures rarely 'just happen'. ;
'They were standing by the water when the photographer said on cue, “I know you prefer photojournalistic shots but I do think a few posed photos would be really great here if that is okay?” '

Winter wedding inspiration


Caroline and Jamie's wedding at The Rectory, Crudwell, Malmesbury

I'm recalling this lovely wedding from last year because it was - quite simply - a delightful day. Caroline and Jamie were married on the last Saturday before Christmas - in All Saints Crudwell followed by their reception at The Rectory.

The challenges for us photographers were that it was ferociously windy and fairly dark, and we were determined to use the wonderful space outside. Caroline and Jamie had organised a really wonderful joyful day; wintery but with a hint of Christmas, and surrounded by many many friends - including 5 bridesmaids and 6 ushers
