Earlier in the year, I photographed Alice and James’ Brentwood Cathedral wedding. Like a lot of bookings I take, they had heard about me from another wedding I had shot two years back in London which can be found here.
It was the second time I had photographed a wedding at Brentwood Cathedral. Only built in 1991, it has an opulent feel and is spacious inside with plenty of window light and high ceilings.
On the day, I was advised by the priest to take a spot and stay there for the majority of the ceremony which was fine by me. I managed to position myself for Alice’s entrance and then quickly nip around to a spare chair for the ceremony. With so much space to work in and very little noise from anywhere else, it was just as well I was rooted to the same spot otherwise I probably would have been quite noticeable. When the Holy Communion took place, I was able to move and shoot from a different angle.
Alice and James went on to Crondon Park in Stock, Essex for their reception. Like weddings at most golf clubs, you’re usually confined to the area set aside. Getting shots of the couple isn’t always the easiest; you can’t just wander off anywhere as you’ll probably have golfers still playing and getting in their line of sight or hit by a ball isn’t advisable. Still on the day, it was pretty quiet so a few shots with sweeping backgrounds was possible and the black painted barn of the venue was quite photogenic.
Alice and James were great to work for and had this to say about there photos, “Thank you so much. The photos are amazing, we love them!”
