Langshott Manor Wedding
This was our first time shooting a wedding at Langshott Manor, an amazing Elizabethan luxury boutique hotel, hidden away in Surrey. Arriving at the door, you can’t fail to be impressed by the beautiful old building and inside, it’s equally as lovely. Both Zara and Ali were getting ready at the hotel, so that gave me the opportunity of capturing some fabulous shots of Alastair as well as also shooting Zara’s bridal pre. Jo Irving at Love Hair did an amazing job as always, as one of our recommended suppliers we love working with her. It’s not always possible to cover the grooms preparations at a wedding, but will when we can and I always like the mix of seeing both the bride and groom getting ready for their big day.
During the ceremony it was quite crowded with Carol and I in the room, plus Lee from Iconic Image shooting the wedding video too. However, we’ve worked with Lee before and he’s very good at understanding how we shoot, so we never really got in each others way or in anyone else’s way for that matter. Plus Carol and I are very used to knowing where we both are and avoiding getting in each others shots. Funnily one of my favourite photos from this wedding is the main image, which was shot through the doorway as Zara & Ali walked out of the wedding ceremony happened because I was outside the ceremony room. Lee was standing just inside of the doorway, on the left and Carol was kneeling on the floor next to him – that made me think very quickly, how could I get a shot of this scene. Placing the camera close to the frame of the window panels has given some interesting shapes and angles, plus reflections on the right hand side that I really like. While at the same time highlighting Ali’s face and the Zara’s beautiful wedding dress and veil, with the bridesmaids smiling in the background.
There were some really emotional moments during Zara & Ali’s wedding day, I think every guest shed a tear at one point or another. I’m glad we captured some of that feeling in the wedding photos, it’s a very privileged thing to be so close to a couple during one of the biggest days of their lives and to be able to capture those emotions for eternity makes it very special for us as photographers.
This is only a short collection of images from Zara & Ali’s wedding day. Their final gallery included over 700 beautiful images. If you’d like to see their whole wedding please Get in Touch.
