Word spreads quickly when you do a good job. That’s what happened when Cath and Dale saw how happy the Bells were with their wedding photos and asked me to be wedding photographer for their wedding in Claypole village near Newark.

The bride and groom set a simple brief for their wedding photography. They wanted natural and unposed shots of people having a good time, with a few formal group shots for the mantlepiece. From the start of the wedding ceremony right through until the the last speech after dinner. But they didn’t have a budget to cover the rates that some intimidating wedding photographers charge.

We had a large medieval church with high ceilings and low light to contend with. So it was a great test for my new Canon 7D, coupled with a sturdy monopod to improve my chances of getting more photos in those less than ideal conditions for photography. The photos turned out quite nicely, especially as I was able to get behind the alter and shoot from behind the priest – that meant I could catch more reactions from the congregation too.

Cath and Dale were delighted with their wedding photos. The photos captured the day beautifully and accurately – but most importantly did it within their realistic budget and at a price they could afford.
