winter wedding December wedding

December weddings

It is typical, isn’t it? When it is cold outside, we dream about summer. It all changes when it gets really hot. In this case we might want to get back to all those fantastic memories we have about winter. Winter holidays, ski, Christmas and of course those beautiful December weddings! Last winter we didn’t experience snow but we actually photographed a white winter wedding. Thank you fog and rime frost! You look so beautiful together!

If you are planning a winter wedding, there is so many fantastic ideas you can use. First of all… the candles, lights, sparklers – the more the better! It gets dark really early and if you add this lighting – you will create a warm, romantic atmosphere. Add a bit of color to your wedding. Winter landscapes look almost black and white – that’s why reds, burgundy, purple and orange colors look so fantastic at that time of the year. Think of a white jacket, cardigan or a cute little fur coat – it will keep you warm and you will look happy on your wedding images. You don’t want to feel the cold and you don’t want to look like you are cold on your wedding pictures. Christmas trees and mulled wine are a fantastic bonus.

Another advantage from a photographic point of view is the variety of your wedding images. Probably thanks to winter weddings we have changed the way we photograph all other weddings.  We now use different lighting condition and split the traditional couple shoot into two or three smaller ones. Our clients receive more interesting pictures with daylight, golden hour and blue hour. Night shots are also a fantastic option – and that is very difficult to achieve in the summer. To sum up… December weddings and all winter weddings are a fantastic opportunity for some beautiful creative imagery!

If you are looking for Hereford wedding photographers, you have just found two of them. Me and my husband – we have been photographing weddings since 2012 and this year is an amazing milestone for us. Next month we will come back from a brilliant workshop organized by the best wedding photographers in the world. So many exciting things are happening at the moment. Pop into our office, let’s have a chat about your wedding day, about you. See if we are the right fit because it is so important to find the right photographer and it costs nothing. Who knows, we might be THE photographers you’ve been searching for? If you like what you see on our website – just get in touch.

This is what we have been up to recently… This year’s weddings are so fantastic! They are so much fun and this is exactly what everyone needs – to be happy, to feel loved, to enjoy every day of their lives. We feel so privileged our couples give us permission to document their wedding day. I mean, what other job can give you this fantastic energy? It is a bit like a mission and the main goal is to give our couples fantastic images – something they can treasure forever. Gosh – we’re almost in June, doesn’t the time just fly by when you are so busy? I definitely need to blog more because I haven’t shown you any pictures from this year’s weddings yet!

You just have to come back and check my new blog posts out! Some couples have decided to keep their wedding photos private, so you won’t be able to read about their stories. There are many other fantastic weddings to write about though! Lots of work to do!

Wedding photography rocks!

Life is a big adventure, life is great. When I look at my life now, I see clearly the really important things. Why do I write all that? Because I have found my own path and I got here because of wedding photography. Well, a couple of other factors helped too but whenever things were going in the other direction, I focused on photography. I am so grateful for the fact that I photograph weddings because it is a great privilege. Ten years ago I wouldn’t even dream of doing what I do and feeling how I feel right now.

In order to find your own path, you have to focus on what’s inside you. Hear your own voice, whisper it first, then say it and if that doesn’t help – shout! Shout, let it all out. So, which are the things I can do without? Television, definitely, a 9-5 job with a boss above you, Facebook addiction and prejudiced people. Wedding photography has given us a beautiful world full of creative, open minded and free people. No borders, just bridges and friendships. Oh, and you can photograph weddings anywhere on Earth! What else could we ask for?

I guess if you love what you do, you probably feel the same. If your job can influence other people’s lives in a positive way and you are happy because of that – you’ve found your dream job. Wedding photography has given us so much. Wedding photography rocks!

A country house wedding

Have you ever considered having a beautiful country house wedding? If not, please take a look at Dewsall Court in Hereford. Last week I had a pleasure of photographing their open day. Did you know that Dewsall is a part of Canvas and Stone – a collection of five independent country houses run by the next generation of owners? The other four are: Elmore Court, Wasing Park, Iscoyd Park and Pennard House. You will probably notice that my website features quite a lot of Dewsall weddings. There is a reason behind it – this venue is just stunning! We have also photographed weddings at Elmore Court and Wasing Park and are hoping to come back to those beautiful venues soon.

There is so much you can achieve when you choose a beautiful country house as your wedding venue. You will feel relaxed, happy and ‘at home’ and your wedding day will be amazing. The photography will be beautiful too, for two reasons: you, feeling great, will look radiant. The other reason is the backdrop – I can confirm that Canvas and Stone’s venues provide the most perfect backdrops for your wedding photos – they tick all the boxes! You just have to arrange a visit and see them for yourself. I’m sure one of them will become your wedding venue!
