You know guys, it’s kind of unusual that, for the second post in a row, I’m featuring another wedding with just a handful of guests. Now, when it comes to weddings, there’s no rule book that says that you must have upwards of 75 guests, although to be fair, most that I shoot do have that kind of number, sometimes more than 100…I think 185 was the largest I’ve ever shot!
Susan & Chris’ big day was another of my April weddings last year, and took place at a venue fairly local to me, the Grange Manor Hotel, which was also to be the first time I’d shot a wedding here, although I’d been here before for a couple of trade shows, so knew my way around well enough…always useful :-).
There’s something very relaxing about more intimate weddings (think there were about 20 in number in total) – there’s not the usual big list of group shots for starters leaving everyone free with much more time to just mingle and chat, which definitely suits my shooting style on the day…photo “ninja” that I am :-). But, of course, I’ll always make time for a few bride & groom shots…very chilled, natural stuff…just go with the flow kind of thing. And, due to the vibe of the day, we managed to fit in two short sessions, one before and one after dinner.
