Its not often I’ll put an image up on my blog before the final wedding is completed but I was really struck by this image from Jenni and Jake’s wedding at Cogges Manor Farm last weekend.
Obviously, this is an image from the church service which was earlier in the day. The church as the very lovely Church of St Michael and All Angel’s, Summertown, Oxford.
I remember distinctly taking this photograph. As I peered down the viewfinder the shaft of light you can see in the image made a brief appearance.
Earlier in the day, Jenni had mentioned that they had brought the service forward as the church would get the best light opportunities.
And it didn’t disappoint.
From a technical point of view I had to control the camera in a way to capture the magic in the scene without showing too much of the other detail in the foreground.
To achieve this, I set the camera into spot metering mode and waited for the ideal opportunity.
I really love this image. It’s lovely to be at a church wedding (though of course all weddings are lovely), and this church particularly. Often, these days, churches are gorgeous on the outside but encumbered internally by ultra modern decoration, lighting and backgrounds.
I hope you love this picture too. Please feel free to share it on Social Media….it does help me out.
