2013 Wedding Photography

I always start the year promising to blog more, especially since I only did three wedding blogs last year. Since I’m here, I think I should do a quick blog on just a few of our more recent weddings.

In the years of wedding photography we have never come across two weddings which are similar, we face new exciting challenges every shoot we do. This is what keeps Concept Wedding on its toes and at its best. If we become bored we just wouldn’t do wedding photography anymore, but how can we get bored when we meet different personalities, shoot in different location and face numerous weather conditions all the time.
We recently shot Sarah and James on golf course and driving range ( I like the photo of James instinctively protecting his wedding tackle). We had Andrea and Chris who hired a London bus, which gave some great photo opportunities, of course we had to photograph them snogging on the back of the bus. And we came across our first bride, Ruth, who didn’t mind climbing a tree in her wedding dress and showing us some of her cheer leading poses. In all honesty how could we get bored?

Vintage Chic Wedding Photography

Belinda & Martin, the most beautiful,  oh-so-in-love couple, opted for a Vintage Chic wedding with a dash of rustic charm. Situated in the heart of the English countryside this Cheltenham based romantic wedding was a day of celebration as Belinda walked down the aisle in a stunning lace detailed dress & empire veil at the St Michael’s Church, Bishops Cleeves (sentimentally it was the same church as her best friend & maid of honor Jo was married a few years previous). Following the service and a few family photos, the celebrations continuing at the newly converted Stone Barn in Aldsworth  and despite the rain no ones spirits could be dampened. Belinda simply swopped her shoes for a pair of Hunter’s and away we went for some stunning photo’s.

Night followed day with ease as the party danced away enjoying up-beat band & succulent hog roast washed down with many a drink. Simply a perfect wedding & with Gary behind the lens he of course added his own personal style to the images of the day.

Concept Wedding delivers exceptional wedding photography throughout the uk and is based in Chester & North Wales

Banksy’s latest work found on the streets of London

Above is what is thought to be Banksy’s latest work which appeared in the early morning on the streets of London. With Banksy’s work usually having a political agenda  it is more than likely raising issues of child labour on the back of the Diamond Jubilee. The mystique surrounding Banksy’s identity was supposedly exposed by the Daily Mail last year. The thought that Banksy was from an under privileged background who grew up on a council estate was crushed, revealing his background was in fact public school, middle class and married to parliamentary lobbyist.

Whilst Banksy’s work always raises interest, there is a stir happening around the streets of Chester. An unknown artist’s work is appearing on the streets of Chester, after much investigation we are still unable to reveal who it is. The work you can see below however does reveal that there is no political agenda, but his/her agenda seems to be what really makes the world a better place to live and that is LOVE. If anyone has any idea who the artist is could you please contact info@conceptwedding.com

 

SHROPSHIRE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

It was a cold but dry day for Kate & Tim’s wedding photography at Delbury Hall in Shropshire, as much as you could hope for in January. The weather may have been cold, but without sounding to cheesy, there was a warm & loving atmosphere through out the day and plenty of emotion. I was a bit disappointed in Tim (the Groom) chasing birds on his wedding day, it was a first for me to see and I managed to capture it on film (sensor) for all to see and below is the evidence. Seriously though we had lots of fun with Kate & Tim, they make a great couple and we wish them all the best for the future.

 

NESTON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

We were on a tight schedule and had 10 minutes to take Ellie and Tom to Parkgate to get shots of them alone. The sun was falling from the sky at a rate of knots and we still had group shots to photograph. Take the easy option, no, not Concept Wedding. We thought we do some contre jour shots, translated it means “into the light”. Shooting into the sun is a technique that would send shivers down the spine of most photographers with such a short time frame. But Ellie and Tom were so easy to work with we knew we could get some stunning images of them and the DB6.
