Five weddings in nine days, shot at the start of August, is a personal record for me. It felt amazing, intense, energising and exhausting all at once!
It was great to be busy doing, without doubt, the best part of the job but I welcomed the opportunity to take a break and recharge. Luckily for Rache and I, a small gap in the summer calendar coincided with our second wedding anniversary. It provided a chance to celebrate and spend some time together and with our families; mine in Derbyshire and Rache’s over on the Isle of Man.
It was during our trip to the island that we got to visit one of our favourite places in the world, and watch the sun set over the Irish Sea. Ballaugh is where Rache and I shared our first date on the Isle of Man. We also had our pre-wedding photoshoot there and returned after our wedding while staying nearby, at Rache’s Aunty and Uncle’s beautiful converted barn, at the start of our honeymoon.
After Fish and Chips in Peel, we were guided by Rache’s Uncle John, to a cliff top to watch the sun go down.
These images were shot with the Fuji XT10 with the 35mm f1.4 and 18mm f2 lenses.
As Maria and Dave settled down for their wedding breakfast I headed back up to the house at Newton Grange and manoeuvred a deck chair in to the sunshine. After backing up the files from the day so far and grabbing a quick cup of tea in a beautiful vintage tea cup I sat back for a quick break. It was an amazing location to take a quick breather and had provided an amazing back drop for Maria and David’s post ceremony garden party featuring pimms, tea and some beautiful acoustic music.
The sun had been shining all morning over Newton Grange, as Maria and Dave got ready in the cottages before heading down the farm track to the beautiful barn for their ceremony.
While I was enjoying the glorious weather, the guys from House of Chords (I love House of Cards and I love a good pun even more) arrived ready to set up for the evenings entertainment. Before I knew it speeches were captured, I’d shot images with David & Maria as the sun was setting and the band were in full swing, keeping the dancefloor rocking all night.
Here are some of my favourite images.
