“You wonderful, wonderful pair! Thank you so so much, these are beyond brilliant!!” – Lou & Tareq
So its May, its about time I started blogging for 2018! I’m going to mix things up a little bit this year, quite literally with the photos. I’ve toyed with the idea for a while but I’m going to dive straight in and change the way I blog this year. Starting with Lou & Tareq and their Wedding At Bruisyard Hall from back in March.
My favourite blog posts to put together for you guys are the Best Of Collections. They’re our best work and dispense with story over individual frames that we just love as standalone images. That doesn’t mean that we’re not storytellers it’s just that sometimes blogging a wedding can go a little like this: The bride gets ready, the groom gets ready, theres a lovely ceremony, some drinks and canapés, some speeches and a big party at the end.
I think if you’re just starting out down this road of booking a wedding photographer looking at one blog after another in that format it can get a big formulaic and becomes difficult to remember who was who.
I also think that although we deliver 400+ photos from almost every wedding you’re not going to hang them on your wall in chronological order. So thats a very long winded way of saying that in 2018 Im going to present my favourite photos from the weddings we shoot, all jumbled up with image after image that hopefully stops you in your tracks and makes you take it in a little more and it helps you begin to imagine what your own collection could look like.
Back to Lou & Tareq. Man alive it was cold. It might have said March on the Calendar but it felt like December in the Arctic. Fortunately, these two are two of the warmest individuals you could ever spend a day with and the weather didn’t matter. I don’t think I heard them mention it once, all that matter was gathering together everyone they cared about for their wedding at Bruisyard Hall and having a hilarious time together.
Special Mentions: Lous Dad. What a legend. As Brits we can be a little reserved, afraid to show our emotions, cautious to let loose and really have a good time. Clearly, he didn’t get the memo on that. He’s set a new standard for happy fathers of the bride and him and both Lou & Tareqs entire families were absolutely amazing.
Heres mine and Hannahs favourites from a brilliant day.
