I was going through the many weddings I’ve photographed over the years and realised how exciting it is to view photographs with fresh eyes. Yes they all show my tell tale signs of painterly colour, use of ambient light and atmospheric quality but I can also see how my style and work has evolved.
This particular photo was from a winter wedding on Dartmoor. The day was cold but crisp and the marriage service started just as the light was fading. The reception was held on the high moor and the brides first dance was sung by the original composer and singer of a very well know and popular song – who also happened to be her uncle!
I’ll always remember it as it was amazing and reminds me again why I love weddings so much!
