The Wedding of Victoria & Matthew

A few weeks back I was at Grims Dyke Hotel (http://grimsdyke.com/planning-your-wedding/) in Harrow to photograph the wedding of Victoria & Matthew. The weather was predicted to be ‘changeable’, but the venue had many different areas for inside photos if needed.

Bridal Preparations

The bridal party were getting ready at the venue. So I spent the morning capturing their preparations.

Returning to the bridal suite, I arranged the dresses to get photos of them altogether.

The groom and his best men were due to arrive, so I went off to find them and grab a couple of shots together before returning to the bride.

I managed to get a close-up shot of the wedding rings on the grooms’ hand.

After the ceremony, we headed outside to get the group and portrait shots in between the inclement weather.

I enjoy this part of the day as it allows me to take natural photos using a telescopic lens so that the guests aren’t aware that I am there.
