Good Morning Bloggers,
Today I am taking you to some wedding photography at Layer Marney Tower, Colchester, Essex with another lovely Pengelly couple Jamie and Sean. The wedding service was held at St James the Less and St Helen Catholic Church, Colchester, Essex. The weather decided to throw us a curve ball, just before the service was due to start the rain came in and lashed down incessantly before, during and after; really there was absolutely no letting up! Professional wedding photographers really do have to cope with the most extreme conditions and before every wedding they will never know what is thrown at them during the day. The beauty of using a seasoned and qualified professional over an amateur or family friend, is they expect this and will produce beautiful images with ease and calm. A true professional will not bat an eyelid whereas the amateur of family friend may well end up in a heap somewhere wondering what on earth they are going to do! Sorry I digress; we decided that we would utilise this beautiful church and do all the group shots inside before heading off to the reception.
So it was off to Layer Marney Tower, which as you know from previous blogs is a Pengelly Popular, so how about this – as soon as we arrived the rain ceased and out came Mr Sun and he was here to stay. Yes the Gods were smiling down on us that day and it was a joy to be taking their portraiture shots outside.
Now for today’s images; the one thing about rain is that is can produce some very dramatic skies that are a great backdrop to any image and the sky really adds to this image of Jamie and Sean walking and the flow of Jamie’s dress really adds movement as well. I do like a nice bridge and the foliage in the foreground really added depth and richness to this image. Well doors and me…a match made in heaven there is nothing quite like a good brick wall and quirky door enhanced with muted colour tones for effect. Well I couldn’t blog about Layer Marney Tower without a Pengelly window could I, so here it is a beautiful bride in a beautiful window with the classical richness of black and white.
It has been all go here at Pengelly HQ and we are looking forward to photographing our lovely couples during the month too. I am not one to complain but could someone get this weather sorted!
Kevin and Sabrina 🙂
