The Taplow House Hotel is a beautiful venue for a Buckinghamshire wedding photographer. Fortunately, this was the venue for Helen and John’s gorgeous wedding and reception at the beginning of November so I was delighted to be their wedding photographer. As the John Paul Young’s song says, love really was ‘in the air’. Even the dark skies and drizzle that greeted us first thing in the morning couldn’t put a dampener on the occasion and as good things tend to happen to good people we were lucky to have a brief respite in the weather later in the day. At least this allowed us to catch a lovely confetti group shot and thankfully the newlyweds were up for some outdoor photographs around the soggy grounds of the hotel.
Besides having the privilege to photograph Helen and John’s big day it was also so nice to be able to meet so many of their welcoming family and friends. Ask any wedding photographer and I’m sure they will all tell you that it’s a pretty exhausting experience, but it’s also incredibly fulfilling. Seeing the day through a camera, capturing all those special moments that the couple will be able to look back on and treasure make it feel so worthwhile and satisfying, and you often get to meet some very interesting characters too.
After accompanying me to many weddings as my equipment curator, my wife Mary had her first experience as a second shooter covering the ceremony from another position. I’m proud to say that she did a wonderful job capturing some special moments from the day so I guess I’ll be hiring her again!
Thanks again Helen and John – I really loved being your documentary wedding photographer for the day.
