Second shooting with Dave once again this time it was very close to home with a church ceremony in the beautiful village of Rolleston on Dove nestled between Tutbury and Stretton, Staffordshire. We started with a bridal prep visit where I met the lovely Clare for the first time. I think she has been the smiliest bride I’ve come across when second shooting who loved working with the camera. Just typical of Dave’s kind of bride to be honest, as he does more contemporary stuff than compared to my relaxed style. Once the bridal prep visit was done, we went off to meet up with Andrew the groom and his groomsmen at the Spread Eagle pub in Rolleston. I have to say, this pub is a favourite of mine :). A few candids were taken and that’s where I come in really, my main purpose is to look for candid moments to capture as well as being on hand to assist the main photographer. I look for little moments, details and capture a wedding from a different perspective. It’s something I love doing and being involved in! I love being creative and there is no pressure for me other than to get great shots of course. I do have set responsibilities to capture certain shots but when it comes to the formals, I generally just assist or capture guest candids if there is anything happening!
After the pub visit it was off to St Mary’s Church for the ceremony. A great one indeed. A first having all the guests sing the ‘Greatest day of my life’ instead of an opening hymn! Fantastic atmosphere, great vicar and such a fun loving couple. It was then time to go to for pre reception drinks on the village green before heading off to Tutbury Castle for the reception – oh my the weather couldn’t have been any better for it, initially! I followed the bride and groom and we had a little fun on the way. It was crazy, just loved Clare the bride and seriously it was hard not to laugh at times. Some fabulous photos again from my perspective showing the fun, love and laughter to a pair of posh Joules wellies perfect for all that hill walking at Tutbury Castle. It was a fantastic wedding to be involved in and one a definitely won’t forget in a while. I’m very lucky to have permission to use the photos I took to show my creativity, style and promote my second shooter work! Without it, then I would be a little stuck….
