The wedding season has begun, and I shot my first wedding this year last weekend in the charming Cotswold countryside. I am not a prolific wedding photographer, maybe squeezing 5 or 6 a year only. And of these I tend to cover events in London and the Home Counties. Firstly, congratulations to Andrew and Susie, who got hitched last weekend, and are now on their honeymoon in Greece sunning themselves for 2 whole weeks. The setting was fantastic, Lords of the Manor hotel grounds in Upper Slaughter, a string-quartet, classic car, village church, 80s style disco and karaoke, the full works!
The village church was a medieval Norman building of stone, and internally it was quite dark. I wasn't allowed to photograph during the ceremony at the altar, which is quite usual. However, I was allowed to do so from the back without flash. This was fine, but due to the low light levels, it was a challenge to keep a steady hand. Fortunately, my Canon 5D has excellent noise control at high ISOs.
