Fun Festival Wedding with a Rock 'N' Roll Twist

August 18, 2016  •  1 Comment

From the minute I met Kerry, Lee and their two wonderful daughters I knew this would be no ordinary wedding.  As Kerry excitedly told me about her vision for the perfect day they were planning, I almost squealed with anticipation: quirky ceremony venue (The Square Tower in Portsmouth); open field (Portsmouth College), haybales, tent marquee (Tentario), ice-cream vintage caravan (Caravanilla), photobooth vintage caravan, plus their eldest daughter performing with her band..... and bride and bridesmaids wearing red under-skirts and shoes.  Oh, and a flash mob.  Part festival, part rock 'n' roll.  In short, one hell of a party!

One of the things I love most about photographing weddings is the huge variety - one weekend I'm in a rustic barn, the next, a stunning country manor, the following, in a picturesque field or on a beautiful beach.  And even if I do three barn weddings in a row, the weather and ambient lighting are always different, the scenery's different, and, most importantly, the personalities of the couple and their guests dictate the mood and atmosphere of the day.  I arrive at each wedding already bursting with ideas, but it's the unique combination of venue, weather and people that provides stimulus for fresh ideas on the day itself.  That's when I'm at my most creative and enjoy experimenting with lights and interesting angles.

From the outset, this wedding was fun.  Kerry's personality is truly infectious - from tears of emotion walking down the aisle, to the hilarious flash mob, to impromptu dancing on haybales, Kerry had me laughing and crying from the early morning bridal preparations through to the rather magical sundown behind the Tentario marquee.  My aim:  simply to capture Kerry, Lee and their family and friends enjoying their day.  A few group shots on the Square Tower rooftop, followed by a walk with Kerry and Lee along the waterfront was as posed as it got.  The shot of everyone on haybales with the marquee in the background is one of my favourite ever group shots.   Rarely do group shots sum up the style and personality of a couple and their wedding as this one did!

As I write, Kerry and Lee have just celebrated their first wedding anniversary!  I know, I know... so many weddings, so little time to blog!  But I was determined to blog this awesome wedding, if only to inspire those couples who might not fit the traditional wedding mould but who want to make sure their wedding is a reflection of who they truly are.  Congratulations Kerry and Lee!  And enjoy re-living a few of your memories....

Gotta go.... after two wonderful weeks in France reconnecting with my lovely husband and kids (and consuming far too much cheese and wine), I now have three weddings to edit.  À bientôt....

As a friend of both Kerry and Lee I can honestly say this was truly a wonderful day and it's been captured beautifully in these photos
