Living locally to the Bury St Edmunds registry office I get a lot of opportunity to photograph weddings there.
Towards the end of 2011 I had the pleasure of meeting Sadie and Jason and taking wedding photographs for their special day.
One of the great things about photographing at wedding at the registry office in Bury St Edmunds is that it’s so close to the historic town center. In this case Sadie and Jason got ready at the Angel Hotel.
Only a stones throw from the registry office, the Angel Hotel is an ideal location for couples who plan a lovely intimate wedding.
Sadie and Jason had chosen the significant date of 11/11/11 to have their wedding. Of course, being Armistice Day they couldn’t have 11am, but 11.30 was pretty close!
Couples often wonder what the purpose is of having the bridal preparations covered as part of their wedding photography. As I work in an unobtrusive style, capturing all the emotions as the couple get ready, the bridal preparations serve two purposes. One is to allow the couple to relax and get comfortable with me being around crafting those beautiful images that will grace their album later on. The other is to set the scene for the day itself. All my photography is created with a narrative in mind. Any story needs characters and photographing the couple as they make all their arrangements on the day is a wonderful way to introduce those two most important players on the day – the bridal couple.
