I had another wedding to shoot today – but not one of my own !
The current UK Wedding Photographer of the year, David Bryce, had booked a wedding a the Tithe Barn, near Ditcham for today. As I’m very familiar with the venue having shot weddings there in the past, and looking forward to my next one in the coming months David asked me to work with him as his second-shooter for this wedding rather than fly his normal assistant down from Scotland – where David is also based.
So we met up at Old Thorns Hotel where the bride was getting ready and got to work. David followed me to the Tithe Barn, and after a recce where I imparted my knowledge of the venue, light and some of my preferred shooting areas we covered the arrival of the guests before I moved to the front of the barn to cover the ceremony – with David shooting from the back. After the ceremony while David was shooting the groups I got some more informal images, details from the brides dress and flowers, some portraits of the bridal party members and then the details on the wedding breakfast tables.
Once the guests had sat down for their meal I handed over David’s cards and bid him a good evening and farewell as he was covering the speeches and first dance. As such, and as this wasn’t my wedding I have no images to post.
Keep an eye on the blog though as I’ll be photographing Fiona and Rory’s wedding reception there in the Autumn.
