The first of a number of Christmas bookings for me. Jono and Clares Prested Hall wedding photography. A venue that I have only worked at once before and that was some years ago. On arriving, the wind was absolutely howling. Clare and a number of the guests are Scots, so I guess Scottish weather was fine:-) Winter weddings I often shoot everything, including groups and couple shots inside, so no problem for me.
I met the girls getting ready upstairs at the venue. My favourite make-up girl in attendence – Carla Brooks…pampering the girls and making them look stunning.
Jono. Cool, calm and collected, was outside greeting guests as they arrived. I’m sure I heard one group say that they had just driven directly from Scotland!
The service was held at Prested Hall. The venue is quiet dark inside but has a lot of character. Some great emotional moments during the service. After a drinks reception by the bar.
Prested Hall has a small library. I tend to gravitate towards these spaces in winter weddings, for couple and some moody group shots. Some creative lighting and the images can be quiet unique. Clare and Jono were game, so we did a few close couple shots – I really like the results.
Been a few weddings with sparklers recently! It seems popular this year and I really like these shots. Just as long as I don’t end up with a burnt ear again!
I really enjoyed this Prested Hall wedding photography for Jono and Clare. A really warm cosy little wedding. Some wonderful characters and a great couple. My best wishes to Jono and Clare for a long and happy life together, overflowing with happiness.
