Good Morning Pengelly Fans,
Yes it’s slapped wrists all round because it has been some time since our last blog! Well we are back and storming into 2014 with winter wedding photography at Smeetham Hall Barn, Bulmer, Suffolk of Nicola and Chris.
The weather was not behaving very well but Nicola and Chris did not care, this was their day and I hope you can see the beauty that emanates from today’s images. Whatever the weather a true professional will embrace this and come up trumps to make your wedding something special to remember.
Sabrina and I headed off to the picturesque Mill Hotel where Nicola was getting ready; the light was really lovely there and we were able to capture some emotive and beautiful images of this special time before the marriage ceremony.
Then it was off to Smeetham Hall Barn and wow what a sight with the snow flurries and frosted fields; winter really does have its own beauty. Nicola and Chris were such good fun all day and nothing was ever a problem for them, they were more than happy to venture outside and this enabled us to capture some of that winter beauty, nature was their perfect guest, it dressed in white so as to compliment the bride but not overpower her, now wasn’t that considerate! So as usual here are today’s images. I love things like rain droplets on a window as this really does set the scene for the wedding and I think it is really romantic. Just look at what nature has done for Nicola and Chris, the fields have been decorated and I love the mist that adds a air of romantic mystery; crikey it’s like something out of Jane Austen! Here a few shots from the Mill Hotel, it is lovely to capture all those little details before the day gets underway and I love this image of Nicola, the whole effect along with the black and white tones sums up the nervous anticipation and excitement of the day ahead. Yup you’ve guessed it; a Pengelly signature ‘rat pack’ image of the boys doing their ‘thang’. I love this type of photography and it is my mission to ensure the boys get as much attention as the girls with this type of dramatic imagery. Look at those studs chilling with a cigar; love it! Even in the winter Smeetham gives the most gorgeous light that is perfect for wedding ceremonies and I think this set really demonstrates what a lovely venue it is. Wow I love the images that we took outside, the light, the snow with Nicola and Chris’ happiness on their wedding day, it really is like something from a novel; Jane Austen again I hear you say. The barn is so versatile that it becomes the most cosy winter venue with warm lights that is perfect for the wedding breakfast and last but not least, love the ducks and how appropriate are these for the current weather we are having.
Sabrina and I are very excited for 2014, we have lots of plans for the business and also for our lovely brides and grooms that we will be photographing this year. Don’t forget we love our studio work too so if you want to experience a bit of the Pengelly magic in the studio we would love to hear from you. Note from Sabrina, Pengelly magic was all Kevin’s idea, I would not be so big headed 😉 All right Sabrina but I love creating a bit of magic; I feel a management meeting coming on!!!!
Check back for more fun, frolics and Pengelly ‘discussions’ soon.
Kevin and Sabrina 🙂
