Nonsuch Mansion Wedding Photographers
Ellie and James’ wedding took me back to Nonsuch Mansion for the second time this year. It is a beautiful venue, both for guests and as a wedding photographer. A series of adjoining rooms, each with beautiful features and large windows, make for great backdrops for your wedding pictures. Even in the middle of winter, close to the shortest day in fact, we still captured images we love from Ellie and James’ big day. The new Canon 5D4 cameras worked well that day, with a 3pm ceremony, the sun had gone down by the time I shot the couple’s portraits.
I especially love the dress shot above, totally unposed – shot as it happened. Documentary wedding photography is all about capturing natural, candid moments like this, which allow the bride and groom, and guests too, to simply enjoy the day, with no unnecessary posing. Ideally, as many couples and guests have commented, not even knowing we are there.
James had already seen us working at another wedding, when he was the best man, and some of my other favourite images are the shots of his reaction to Ellie walking down the aisle. One of the huge benefits of shooting with a second photographer is the ability for me to stay at the front and just concentrate on the groom’s expressions. Those last few moments are always the best. James went through the full gamut of laughing, nervousness and even a tear as he turned round and saw Ellie for the first time in her gorgeous dress. Capturing such special moments for my couples means the world to me. They won’t ever happen again, so being able to look back at the pictures and re-live that moment over and over again in years to come is such a magical gift to give a couple.
