Fantastic news, David has been appointed as a Guild of Photographers Master Craftsman in wedding photography. This award is a great honour and will enable David to help with mentoring, judging and assessments.
This is after being awarded a Fellowship of B.I.P.P last year on submission of a portfolio of 22 wedding pictures. The pictures all have to be taken at real weddings under the usual wedding day constraints – no ‘wedding styled photo-shoots’ allowed!!
The pictures submitted have to be of the highest artistic and technical quality and are assessed by a panel of expert judges.
One of the pictures from the successful portfolio. Please make an appointment if you would like to come and see them all:-
Wedding Photographs Fennes – The popular friendly Wedding Venue, The Fennes near Braintree, Essex, was Kristen and Andrew’s choice for their Wedding Day. Arriving at Fennes, Kristen was busily getting ready upstairs with the Bridesmaids and Flowergirls. Preparations were going well, so with keeping an eye on developments together with taking some detail pictures, it was busy! David sought out the men who were almost ready and when they were, there was time for some pictures to be taken. For a change David took Andrew, with his Best Man, Andy, out the back of Fennes for their pictures, even though it was raining. Pleased with the results they returned to the house. Meanwhile, Kristen was in the final stages of getting dressed and soon ready for some pictures.
Equally some lovely pictures captured of Kristen and the girls. In no time at all it was time for the Wedding Ceremony. With the Guests seated the Flowergirls led the way into the Pavilion followed by the Bridesmaids and Kristin escorted by her Father. Following the Ceremony, Kristen and Andrew led their Guests to the front of Fennes for the Drinks Reception.
Unable to go outside at that particular time due to the continuing rain, the Wedding Guests made themselves comfortable in the rooms in Fennes, leaving us the Gold Room to take some pictures of the happy couple. A short while after the rain stopped, we all went outside for a few pictures, making good use of the steps. Later after socialising with their Guests, Kristen changed her footwear so we could venture further outside for their pictures. Kristen and Andrew wanted to make the most of the superb grounds for their wedding photography, so off we went, for a short tour! An enjoyable time, resulting in some lovely pictures for them.
Once they were back indoors the Guests threw confetti over Kristen and Andrew before the guests made their way to the Pavilion for the Wedding Breakfast. This allowed a few minutes for some pictures of Kristin and Andrew in the Red Room, before they also made their entrance into the Pavilion. Speeches followed the meal and then the Pavilion was prepared for the evening celebrations. After their evening Guests arrived in time for cutting the Wedding Cake shortly prior to the First Dance. Some lovely moments captured! Our coverage of Kristin and Andrew”s Wedding Day finished with their ‘sparklers’. A great day!
