Longstowe Hall Wedding Photography – Emma and Nick

Wedding speeches

 

“Thank you so much for Friday, you made us feel really at ease……….we love the photos, thank you so much. There are some brilliant shots……” -Emma and Nick

 

I love photographing weddings at Longstowe Hall, I’ve been there many times before and it really does feel like photographing very much on my home ground to use a bit of a football analogy! However despite my frequency and familiarity I hadn’t photographed a ceremony “on the water” outside there so Emma and Nick’s wedding was a welcome first!

Despite the fantastic surroundings I was naturally drawn to photographing the interactions and people on the day and spent a lot of the day looking for those moments which really capture the essence and tell a bit of the story. The picture above does just that and is one of my favourites – I always try to look for moments of connection between the bride and groom during the groom’s speech and this is exactly what I got here. I really like Emma’s expression and actually that is almost strong enough to carry the image on it’s own I think. What I really like is the background where you have a bit of a commentary on what’s going on with Emma’s mum and bridesmaid wiping a tear from their eyes! I would like to say that I deliberately included the man wiping his eyes/face in the background as well but I have to be honest and say that was purely a fluke!!

 

I also really like the sunset picture near the bottom which is the only one that was set up – I think I would have preferred a bit more of a natural pose but I absolutely love the colours and so it just had to go into my list of favourites!

 

A few of my other favourites are below…..
