Photographer in Nottingham Wedding of Claire & James, can only be described as a mini Glastonbury but with amazing weather and beautiful people.
Claire’s son Charlie came down to the studio for a family shoot with his girlfriend, Meesha and baby boy Rudy, a while back. Whilst doing the shoot we got chatting about me being a Wedding Photographer too. Charlie said his mum was getting married soon, we checked the date was free and that was that. A while later Claire and James called up to get booked in. My first wedding festival was booked and I was excited to see what it would all be about.
Situated out in the middle of nowhere after following the fantastic instructions given to me by James, I found myself pulling up to a field, in the distance I could see the amazing set up for what was going to be a great festival. All the lads were helping stock up the outside bar, which was provided by BENS BARS, there was sound checks going on, a bit of organised chaos!
A BBQ wedding breakfast washed down with plenty of drinks was enjoyed by all the guests.
A short but very sweet speech was delivered by Claire’s Dad followed by a lengthy one packed with emotion and laugher from James, Think he had worded his father in Law to leave him plenty of talking time.
Before the afternoon guest arrived, I did manage to steal them away for a short photo walk in the beautiful field, making the most of our surroundings.
The music kicked off on stage with Issac Bloomfield, a local Nottingham singer and family friend. Claire got a surprise when James joined Issac on stage to play the drums accompanied by Jack & Harvey Evans Claire’s nephews who were amazing….
The challenge of the day for me was the weather. The blazing sunshine beaming down on the guest meant I needed to work quickly on the cameras utilising all the manual functions to avoid too many shadows. Even having to use fill flash at times.
I write this blog whilst James and Claire enjoy their honeymoon to Paphos, I just hope they can get a bit of Wi Fi to enable them to have a read and reminisce.
