Wedding Photography Bedford – In the rain!

The rain and wind didn’t prevent Angela and Andy having a great wedding day. They married at St Phillip & St James Church in Brickhill, Bedford and then went on to Bellinis in Clapham for a great reception.

It wasn’t the easiest day to take photos as the rain didn’t really stop so we kept everyone in the church which was fortunately large enough to take photos of 130 guests comfortably, we also managed to get the bride and groom outside for some photos and they were a great couple to work with as they didn’t let the weather prevent them from having photos taken.

If you’re looking for wedding photographers for your wedding day it’s important to check what experience they have when working in poor weather conditions. Regardless of the weather the photos still have to be taken in a professional manner and style whilst complementing the actual wedding day. Guests have to be kept happy whilst photos are being taken and that usually involves a lot of last minute organisation by the professional wedding photographers on the day.

Windy Wedding Days!

It must have been the windiest day of the year for Nicole and Matthew’s wedding day at Bassmead Manor near St Neots but it didn’t stop them having a perfect day. The temperature was unusually mild so guests were happy outside but trying to fly our drone proved difficult but we still managed to do it.

This is a little preview from a few images with their video due to be readying a few weeks.

 

 

 

It’s October and Wedding season is still in full flow!

Most people expect us to be busy just during the summer period with weddings; however having been established for over 24 years we’re kept busy pretty much all year as we’ve built the business on recommendations. It’s essential when choosing a photography/video company your wedding the company has a solid track record. You can’t afford to be let down with someone who has little or no experience, it’s one day so you have to get it right, and remember booking the cheapest or cheap photographers or videographers could be the most expensive mistake.

Despite the risk of rain we managed to get everything shot well within the time we were given allowing the bride and groom to have plenty of time to mingle with guests rather than having their whole afternoon spent taking photos. We always work quickly and efficiently on a wedding day.
