YAY! It’s the middle of the week and we’re one step closer to the weekend….. Ok, we know you love Wedding Wednesday, almost as much as us, and that’s why you will love our featured wedding today.
We are delighted to share with you a wedding from one of our newest suppliers on A Vintage Wedding Guide, Clare from CTI Photography. We’ve been a big fan of Clare’s work for a long time now.. so ‘WELCOME’ and enjoy the feature!
Steffi & Ash were such a lovely couple, very laid back, and when they told me about their wedding ideas, I knew I just had to photograph it. They were getting married at Basildon Park which is a stunning venue and has beautiful grounds, and then their reception was being held at Herons Farm which is a barn that is a blank canvas. They had such wonderful ideas to DIY it for a book themed wedding and make it personal and show off their personalities.
Steffi and Ash wanted to do a mini photoshoot with the books incorporated into it which was a lot of fun to do. They are creative people as well so it was nice to be able to bounce ideas.
It was wonderful day. Everyone was so welcoming and it is always such an honor to be a part of someone’s special day and to be able to witness it and help them capture it. There’s nothing better than that.
My style is honest, natural and fun, and that’s just what they wanted. They wanted lots of natural shots of their guests enjoying themselves, as well as to have some fun, particularly with the mini photoshoot. Their wedding theme was quite quirky which fits in with my personality, and so it was just such a pleasure to photograph. I also had the wonderful Rachael Pereira working with me as a second shooter to help capture different angles and perspectives of the day.
Choose someone whose work and style you like, but meet with them to ensure you like them as a person too. Engagement shoots are a great way to see how your photographer works firsthand as well. It is also helps you feel more relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera on your wedding day so it’s one less thing to worry about.
How lovely – don’t you just love the excited look of the bride? It looks like everyone had a beautiful day. I also adore the woodland features in there, just divine!
