Wedding Photos at New Craven Hall- Brides Up North Wedding Feature
So… I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a bit of a country girl at heart and really I specialise in countryside weddings. However, I shot the lovely Jess’s twin sister Kirsty’s wedding a few years ago in the Lake District and well, they kindly remembered me and asked if I shoot another family wedding for them! Now, when I got the lowdown on the type of day it was going to be, I did a little gulp as it’s a fair step out of my comfort zone but I LOVED it and even I (my own worst critic) am pretty chuffed with the results.
As a photographer, I feel it’s really important to keep things fresh, to challenge yourself and always try to grow your style and so with this different type of wedding for me, I embraced the day. A city backdrop is obviously very different to the countryside; the lines of the building are hard and there’s a palette of muted industrial colours compared to soft rolling hills and luscious greens. It was interesting to see how my style instinctively adapted to a more documentary/ fashion approach to wedding photography. This was not the only thing that I changed for this wedding, my editing filter. Jess LOVES rose gold and it was a big feature of their wedding. So, with this in mind, I found a new filter that really gave the images that luxe coppery feel to compliment her wedding styling.
In conclusion, this wedding totally inspired me and gave me a whole new appreciation for city centre weddings, thank you Jess & Tom for trusting in me! It also taught me not to pigeon hole myself, bring on more city weddings, I’ve got the bug! Big thanks to Julia & her team at Brides Up North for supporting me and featuring this amazing wedding. It’s total inspiration for any bride planning a city centre wedding and quite frankly a how to guide!
