At the time he was working as a shooter for an award winning wedding photographer that was very well established. It was well before we had set up our own business but still to this day the shoot stands out as one that is very much remembered. Not only for the castle's beautiful location but you look at the images and think goodness what a good looking bunch!
The Isle of Portland is a 3 1/2 hr journey there and back and if we went as far again we'd take the camper and spend an extra couple of nights in the area. So do please contact us - even if you are quite far away, - we could do with a little holiday!
You can see some of Nicola and Darren's images here.
It is with great thanks to Steve, our Hermes delivery driver man for recommending us to a mum - whose daughter was getting married. Before we knew it, our website was forwarded to Jo and Mark in London and within hours, we were booked.
Here are some photographs from their lovely wedding day.
Some clients we get to know quite well before the wedding day. Simone was one such client. Not Len - who frankly thought it way over the top to have a photographer - let alone two! It was only on the day that we got to meet Len. I think we won him over!
We were only hired for a few hours and before we knew it we were back in the car driving home (or rather to Newlyn where we stopped to eat our sandwiches overlooking the bay)..
Simone you were such a laugh and so wonderfully appreciative of our services. We really enjoyed photographing you and seeing you enjoy your special day. After having experienced tremendous loss in your life Simone, this day was filled with such happiness and it was everything you deserved.
Emma & David came into our lives via my sister, Samara. Whilst Emma and her daughter rented Samara's studio apartment in St Ives (Lowena Studio), - whist they visited her wedding day vendors - my sister asked whether a photographer had been chosen and thankfully for us the answer was 'no'.
It was the most incredible experience photographing the wedding. Emma's partner David is deaf as were many of the guests and we were simply mesmerised by sign language.
When we broke for a quick bite to eat we sat with the interpreter and learned a great deal about the non-hearing world and in particular the great art that is sign language. Most memorable was her explanation that interpreters speaking amongst each other, quite often revert to sign language when they want to describe something...
