Wedding of Stephanie and Darryl - Channels Golf and Country Club

First of all Happy New Year to you all!

Well, what a busy and enjoyable Christmas I have had. First and foremost, I got engaged on Christmas Eve to my amazing girlfriend, Amber. I couldn't be happier.

The day after Boxing Day I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of a lovely couple, Stephanie and Darryl, at Channels Golf and Country Club.

Having photographed them in late summer on a pre-wedding shoot at Danbury Lakes, I was excited about having the opportunity to photograph such a good looking couple again on the biggest day of their lives.

The wedding was at 4pm so it was a 12 noon start to get pictures of the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready.

The light was going to be one the biggest challenges - it was a gloomy, rainy day anyway and the bridal suite, although beautiful, was small and very dark. I used my flashlights with softboxes and bouncing to get the natural look. 

While Stephanie was putting her dress on the rain stopped for 10 minutes, allowing me to get some pictures of the beautiful venue and some of Darryl and his best man Craig. After some final bridal prep images it was on to the ceremony.

Darryl didn’t know that Stephanie was going to be wearing a wedding dress. He was told that, as they are saving up for the birth of their first child, she would be wearing a white suit. The shock and delight on his face is plain to see.

By the time the ceremony was over the rain had finally stopped but the sun was rapidly disappearing from the sky. I really do love the look of the evening shots here.
A few hours later and my last duty of the day - the first dance, combined with the confetti shot. 

This was a really lovely wedding and I enjoyed photographing it, even though the lighting was a challenge. It was a pleasure to be part of their special day.

Thanks for reading and look out for next month’s blog…… Steve.
