Katie & Dan at the Bedford Lodge Hotel, Newmarket, Suffolk
I had prayed for good weather all week and my prayers were answered as we had a real scorcher for the wedding of Katie and Dan at the Bedford Lodge Hotel in Newmarket, Suffolk. Bedford Lodge is a great venue to work at, with it's modern contemporary rooms and beautiful gardens, it becomes a photographers playground and can produce some great shots. As photographers we can end up at the same wedding venue several times a year and so I make it a top priority to create something different for every couple, rather than simply relying on the same old shots week in week out. This is the first time we have shot the evening iconic image from outside of the hotel looking back to the main gates. The sun was in an ideal position and I had an idea in mind which was to try and capture the full grand entrance to the hotel with the bride and groom. For this we decided to utilise a fisheye lens and studio lights and I'm really pleased with the finished image.
