Well, I was honoured and extremely chuffed to be invited to the UK to do a wedding shoot. As with anywhere in the world, its so difficult to get someone to do something professional, reliable and consistent. I am all these I am very glad to say. Years of practise with photography.
So my reputation proceeds me., which I am happy to say!
On the morning though my heart did sink For Kerry and Lee as the heavens opened. I did however have faith in the British weather. It changes at the drop of a hat and I was relying on this! True to my word it did and we got some incredible shots by the lake and the swans all decided to fly together and this just created a perfect original wedding shot. Just what I like!
I try to bring some kind of editorial feel into a shoot. Clients think they want really traditional as this is what makes it more interesting. We always think we know what we want but when we are offered something slightly different then , normally, we love it. Its not because we didn’t want it in the first place. Its just that we did not understand it or imagine how it would be. Once in context then we generally like it.
I just love the one of Kerry with the cigarette hanging out of her mouth. On the day I really wished that I had brought a leather jacket with me and a pair of boots. Kerry could have worn them. The shot I would have got would have been , “wicked”. The outfit would be fit for any #nightclub in the UK or Dubai!
It reminded me of a shoot for a magazine I used to work forin Cheltenham called Cotswold Style” I shot a beautiful model in a similar outfit sat on a chair with the Union Jack! It was for the Queens Jubilee.
Enjoy the images. I loved shooting them. I just wished I had my make up team with me @thelipstickmakeupinstitute.
This is one of my Favourite images!
