Will and Lou's wedding was an immensely fun day to cover! In fact, I've been itching to blog this beautiful wedding for quite a few months, having photographed it last halloween!
The reason behind this is I've been designing and building this new website we're on now. Anyone that's done this will be all too aware of how time consuming a task it is!
Back to the wedding... I first worked with Will and Lou during their pre wedding photo shoot on Greenham Common on the outskirts of Newbury. It's an absolutely stunning area of heathland that I happen to know very well, thankfully we had incredible weather for the shoot which took place last spring.
These shoots really are the best way for us to get to know each other a little more before the big day. I don't put people in awkward poses or expect them to run towards (or even acknowledge) the camera - it's just a walk and talk and the wedding photography is simply a biproduct of this.
The wedding day all took place in Berkshire with a small church service swiftly followed by a very fun wedding reception at the Elm Farm Organic Research Centre.
For me, one of the best things about getting married in October is the light, it's just beautiful! The low, warm winter sun that creates so many different tones, angles and shadows, ideal for documentary wedding photography.
The Halloween theme was carried off perfectly with Lou and Will's (but mainly Lou's) attention to detail being well worth the effort.
Here are just a few of my favourites from this Halloween themed wedding in Berkshire.
