I was recently at Hampton Court Castle, Hope under Dinmore, Leominster for the lovely wedding of Sam & Vidya.
As a wedding photographer I see it as part of my professional obligation to speak to the vicar or the registrar before the ceremony to discuss their rules and regulations.
I’ll always abide by them, and by and large, they are usually very accommodating. One thing that comes up often though, is the “no photographing of the actual register when its being signed”. Its something to do with data protection and I understand it.
So in this case, when I was at Hampton court Castle, I noticed that the signing would be occuring just inside the entrance to the portcullis area and I realised this could potentially made a charming image – but without compromising the registrars rules.
I love how this image turned out. For the more technically minded; I metered specifically for the light and use the wide angle conversion lens on the fantastic Fujifilm X70.
I really like the scale of the image and of course the reverence of it too.
I really hope you love this picture too.
