Ruth & Daryl – Castle Leslie Wedding

Castle Leslie Weddings – Yet again one of those venues with a prestige about it. From the grandeur of the house to the beautiful lake in the grounds. I’m always spoilt for choice when it comes to photographing there.

I am a big hippie at hear and like to chat about energy, epseically the energy people give out. I really feed of good energy and feel it shows in the photos. Ruth and Daryl’s energies were amazing. Chilled, friendly, and breezing through the day in their own cheeky way.

I really enjoyed hanging out with the girls in the morning. They had chosen bright accommodation and light is the battle most of the time in getting good photos. It makes my job a lot easier when there is light streaming in from every angle.

The ceremony went off without a hitch. There were a few slip ups during the vows but it always gets a great laugh; and of course the mild embarrassment is classic to photograph.

A whirlwind of a day is what it turned into. There was very little time to do the feature photos and group shots. I used all my experience from the past to be as efficient as possible. Creativity and efficiency really do work hand in hand at weddings. As a photographer you must know when to command, when to step back and when to blend into the background.

That evening there was many a dance moved pulled on the dance floor. Always what I like to see!

I hope you enjoy this latest instalment in the blog.
