WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT BUCKLAND TOUT-SAINTS
I’m no stranger to this place, in fact, this is my third wedding blog on Buckland Tout-Saints, and I just love this venue, intimate and tucked away in beautiful South Devon. But what I love about it most is the potential for so many photo opportunities. My first trip there a few years back ended up setting a precedent for heading to Bantham Beach after dinner, as the sun goes down over the ocean, pretty cool and it never disappoints, with the backdrop of Burgh Island it makes for a great way to get more pictures and a bit of closure on your day from a picture point of view anyway, along with pictures inside the house and within the grounds, not forgetting a cute little church 100 yards up the road, Buckland Tout-Saints oozes pictures.
Sadie and Jono were the couple, who booked a year previously, I just knew they were the right clients for me, and vice versa, it fitted, we fitted. I knew I was the guy for the job of covering their wedding, it felt like this when we all got together at Jono’s mum’s house in South Milton late on in the year before. They were both into my documentary photography style, where I work unobtrusively and spontaneously, as an observer rather than a directer. Documenting couple’s days in a faithful and genuine way, honest gritty photojournalism.
The term wedding photographer has taken on a lot of different types these days, and I’m not saying that one is any better than the other, far from it, every couple are looking for a certain style and a way, with expectations of what and how they see and percieve their wedding finally to end up looking. For me, I try and offer something a little different, scratching away at the surface of each wedding, and delving a little bit deeper, capturing fleeting timeless moments which lasts a lifetime to look back on.
Thanks for looking.
