Dan is an old friend of mine and I am honoured that he and Sarah chose us to shoot their wedding. I haven’t seen Dan much over the last few years as he is in the RAF these days and gets posted all over the country, so it was great to catch up again over a cup of tea. Watch out for an air force themed wedding in the next few weeks.
Sarah and Dan are having their reception at Stoke Rotchford Hall which is a place we had never been to before. Oddly enough we have got another wedding their the week after. Stoke Rotchford is a beautiful venue, so nice and light indoors and has beautiful grounds you could just wander around all day (and that is pretty much what we did). Ben and I can’t wait to shoot their wedding, we had a great time getting to know Sarah a little better and getting to know them as a couple. They are great together and it comes across in the photos from the day. There is something peaceful about their relationship which really appeals to me.
As is often the case Dan and Sarah were slightly nervous about the thought of their wedding photos and in particular the wedding shoot itself but having had a pre wedding shoot with them it seems their nerves are but a distant memory. Ben and I love pre wedding shoots. We would never go back to not doing them. Here is an excerpt from an email Dan sent to me just after our day at Stoke Rotchford.
“Just a note to say Sarah and I really enjoyed the pre-wedding shoot last week. Neither of us are massively comfortable in front of the lens, but you and Ben instantly put us at ease. Really looking forward to the day now – not that I wasn’t before you know, but it always helps to square away the important bits.”
Anyway, enough of me rambling, here are some photos.
