Why should the wedding day be the only day you wear your wedding dress!

Posted on November 15, 2012

You may of heard the term – ‘Post wedding shoot’s, or’ Trash the dress’, or ‘Express the dress’. Whatever you want to call them, we offer them.   We invite all previous customers of ours and married couples (newlyweds or not-so-newlyweds) to dig out their wedding dress from the wardrobe, dust it down, chose a favourite location (or completely random one) and let’s go for it. You could opt for a countryside shoot, such as a woodland setting, or if you are feeling confident enough something in a more urban setting. The guys can join in too – don’t worry if you hired your suit for your wedding day, any suit in the wardrobe will suffice.   Remember, the pressures of the big day…

Take a moment out on the big day!

Posted on November 14, 2012

With every Bride and Groom that selects us for their Wedding day we always recommend taking 30 – 40 minutes or so out of the afternoon / evening for some private photos of just the two of them. The perfect time for this is usually just before dusk when the sun is setting and the light is much softer.  At this time of day it usually means that the main parts of the day, such as ceremony, meal and speeches are over with and it is then just the evening celebrations to look forward too.

 

The beauty is, we only usually have to step outside the reception venue doors for it; most wedding venues will have a picturesque backdrop – a few trees, maybe a lake – even if it’s just a patch of open green space, this will suffice. This intimate shoot will normally take a similar route to the pre-wedding shoot, where there is nothing too posed or cheesy – just you guys holding hands, cuddling, kissing and whispering in each others’ ears. It’s really as simple as that! The results of which are normally the pick of the album too!

 

Here are just a few of our favourite bride and groom shots.

Felicity and Matt

Posted on November 5, 2012

A vintage themed and a wedding venue to dream of set the scene for Felicity & Matt’s wedding back in the height of summer.

The beautiful Bride was surrounded by her lovely bridesmaids all morning, sipping champagne, eating yummy looking cupcakes and helping her get ready for the big day ahead. The Mother of the Bride had made the amazing bridesmaids dresses herself, which gave the look a very unique feel and they matched Felicity’s gorgeous wedding dress perfectly. Whilst all this was going on the boys had a surprise in store for Matt as he was getting ready into his wedding attire; a white stretch limousine to take them to the venue!
The ceremony and reception were held at The Priory Barns, Little Wymondley and the venue fitted their theme perfectly. Tables laid with Cath Kidston style jam jar favours and shabby chic decor throughout, a lot of effort had gone into this big day and a lot of love too. It really did look fantastic!

After a quick game of oversized Jenga, a bounce on the space hoppers and a quick pose on the Custardface Photography LOVE box we took the newlyweds for a wonder in the sunset where we were able to take some lovely photos of the happy couple; perfect timing!

After the meal and speeches were done the Blue Rinse band set up and played on into the summers evening and certainly kept the dance floor filled and moving; it’s always a good sign when everyone is dancing and enjoying themselves at the end of your big day. They were a fab band (highly recommended) and topped the day off just nicely.

A great day – congrats again to the new Mr and Mrs Rawling!

Dom and Chris

Posted on October 18, 2012

We had been waiting a long time for this day; Dom is a very dear friend of Sonias so we were thrilled when she first asked us to do her wedding photography. Taking photos of any couples wedding day gives you a special feeling, let alone when it’s one of your close friends.

It was such a great morning, watching Dom get ready for her magical day with her girlies and the lovely atmosphere whilst the girls had their wedding brekkie and then had their hair and make-up done. The girls looked amazing in their dresses with their fabulous hair do’s and Dom, well where do we start; she looked like a princess and that’s exactly how she felt. Let us not forget the handsome Groom, Chris you looked great too!

We loved the vintage theme, the welcome drinks were surrounded by old suitcases full of Dom & Chris memorabilia and they had a special room set up for vintage themed photographs, a cheese cake for the cheeseboard and of course the sweetie bar! Every detail had been considered, the place names were vintage looking luggage tags tied to apples by the stem, it was such a unique idea. Everywhere we looked it was a photo opportunity, even during the ceremony where the groom cried, (a lot) it was just a great day full of inspiration and happiness – which is the perfect combination for any photographer.

The Mansion House in Shuttleworth is a very popular venue for weddings and is a grand, stately home with amazing grounds surrounding it. We made the most out of the sunset with the bride & groom by taking them out into the grounds to get some shots of them together; running, cuddling, kissing and generally just being a happily married couple. These were our favourite shots of the day, as were the Bride and Groom as they ordered their thank you cards, canvases and aluminium prints with these sunset photos, the Custardface Photography Love Box is going to be on every wall of the newlyweds house!

A massive Congratulations to a lovely couple!
