to everyone for their kind comments on Sian's portrait. I was delighted and so was she!
Today I've posted two detail shots from the wedding on Easter Sunday. I love the attention to detail today's brides show; everything seems chosen with such care in moderrn weddings. I especially like the recent styles in bouquets - much classier than my bouquet was twenty years ago!
The first photo is one of the windows in the great hall at Peckforton and the second one is pretty obvious!!
Yesterday's wedding was another lighting challenge! The room at Manchester Town Hall was so dark I only managed one shot of the service without flash that was usable - wish I'd had the D300 which is great in low light. The restaurant was ok but the layout not good for walking around taking candid shots. The disco in the evening was my worst nightmare...REALLY dark, small, crowded and with myriad flashing and strobe lights. Out of every 10 shots I took maybe one or two were ok...thank God for digital cameras.
There is something very exciting about being part of a wedding. Everyone I've met so far has been friendly and pleasant. Yesterday one lady took a photo of ME - she said it was only fair as I'd taken several of her! Another guest said "you're the sneaky photographer..." good description as I'm the one who tries to catch guests unaware when my boss is doing the important shots!And many thanks to the kind man who bought me a lemonade when I was as dry as the Sahara; I can honestly say few drinks have ever tasted as good to me as that one did!
We are having the Wildcat and family around for Sunday dinner today which will round off the weekend nicely.
