Documentary Wedding Photography at Orchardleigh Estate | Elizabeth & Tim

Elizabeth and Tim's relatively traditional wedding took place on Orchardleigh Estate on the outskirts of Frome in Somerset. Their ceremony was in a little chapel on the estate which is probably the darkest church I've ever worked in and at one stage during the service (this is probably much more interesting to the wedding photographers reading this post!) I was shooting at 16,000 ISO with a 1.4 aperture, and even then I was only getting an 80th of second shutter speed. Thankfully the cameras we use are very much up to the task as flash is most definitely not an option during a ceremony, it would be far too intrusive and in my opinion would completely ruin the wedding, let alone the ceremony.

Tim and Elizabeth's intimate ceremony was swiftly followed by a classy drinks reception at Orchardleigh House just a few minutes drive from the church and a venue I know very well.

The reception was great fun with some particularly memorable speeches, fireworks and dancing.

Below are just a few of my favourites from this fantastic wedding day.
