SIDMOUTH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

A crisp and sunny October morning in Sidmouth, just outside Exeter, the mood in the house where the bridal prep was taking place was charging up lovely for the day ahead, fun and laughter, I like that, who doesn’t? Good pictures to be had, I felt really at ease walking around doing my stuff, until they all went outside to fire guns in the garden. Yes, it happened, bridesmaids swinging a gun about with rollers in their hair, it was a first, and I liked it. 

A few rounds later and the girls put down the fire arms and went back inside to get ready for a wedding, after all, this is why we were all there in the first place. The wedding breakfast (hate that term, nowhere near breakfast time, ever) was in a beautiful marquee, situated on Sidmouth cricket pitch, fantastic views across Sidmouth and decorated out stylishly and swish, the dance floor was done out in chequered black and white, with balloons hanging over the top giving the whole space a lovely balance, at this point I was already famished to start shooting the first dance. 

So the bride and groom, Helen and Joseph, models living in China (who now run their own agency). Helen growing up in Sidmouth, hence the wedding in these parts, with them being models, and not being anxiously aware or uncomfortable with a cameras in front of them, like you would expect really. I was interested in how this would all turn out, as my style of wedding photography is a polar opposite from posing straight down the throat of the camera, but this turned out to be a fantastic asset and addition to our whole relationship, between couple and photographer. They didn’t want posed and staged pictures, which they could have nailed perfectly with a traditional wedding photographer, but this I liked, they chose me, in a way turning the whole photography thing on its head, and stepping away from what they know so very well. Where most don’t, they traded, for the no formal posing, a documentary feel and photojournalistic approach, and that’s why I was there, along with TV presenter Jamie Theakston who was also in attendance, I got a selfie with him, couldn’t stop myself to be honest, I did try, a bit. 

The whole day was a delight to be around and part of, situated in a fab part of Devon. If you are interested in other blogs and wedding venues I have been to, then please take a look here https://grw.photography/blog/
