This is a photograph from a very recent wedding that I shot at Cripps Stone Barn in Gloucestershire.
It was a really beautiful wedding, but, being the end of November in England there was always the chance of torrential rain.
And rain, it did.
This means that all the guests are confined to the inside space which, whilst presenting different challenges to me as the wedding photographer, also means that I can blend in even more and capture those very delicate moments that exist at every wedding.
Interaction between the bride (or groom) and their friends and family is one of the building blocks of a wedding shot in a documentary style.
In this image, I was concentrating on the relationship between the bride, Charity, and her friends.
Whilst there are several images of the faces and the laughter, the moment I saw the hand of her friend rest on Charity’s hips I knew it was a picture I wanted to take.
Images like this, whilst very non-traditional, I think can be quite powerful.
I really love this picture and I hope you do too.
Please feel free to comment and/or share.
