In mid November I was at Balbirnie House Hotel to photograph the wedding of Sarah and Nic. They chose a humanist wedding ceremony and I was delighted to be working with Gillian Stewart again. Balbirnie House is my most popular wedding venue and I have photographed weddings at Balbirnie in all seasons and all weather conditions. Sarah and Nic had a remarkably balmy day and we were able to do the formals outside on the main steps.
One of the reasons that Sarah and Nic chose me was they wanted to spend little time on the formals and couple shots and spend as much time as possible with the guests. All the formals requested were taken in 25 minutes and all the couple shots were taken in 20 minutes. This is quite typical coverage for my wedding photography as it allows time to capture plenty of detail photographs as well as candids to tell a natural story of the couples wedding day.
Another reason why I was booked was my black and white reportage photography. Typically 20-30% of my coverage is black and white wedding photographs and a selection of my favourites are above. Great subjects for black and white wedding photographs are the ceremony, receiving line, speeches, children and the first dance, in essence photographs with emotional content. I always try and capture a dramatic black and white landscape of the wedding venue too.
I look forward to photography of more weddings at Balbirnie House Hotel in 2012. It is such an excellent wedding venue regardless of the weather and the organisation of the wedding, the food and the service is always first class. The hotel itself also has a new dedicated wedding website that can be viewed here. They also currently have a last minute offer for Saturday 4th April 2012. Details are here.
