Katrina and David's Winter Wedding in Somerset

What could be more fabulous than recording memories through Photography, spending the day with a Bride and Groom and all their family and friends, being part of the couples most special day, their wedding.

We absolutely love our profession as professional wedding photographers and Videographers.

On Saturday we had such a wonderful time recording Katrina and David Michael James Burns' wedding in somerset, Tracy and myself arrived at the venue at 11:45 am, we had arranged to be with Trina for her bridal preparations from 13:00pm. We wanted to take a few images of the venue, Guests milling about and all the excitement that fills the atmosphere on the wedding day.

The reception rooms were looking stunning even though not all the preparations had been completed, the wedding Cake looked incredible, very festive of course for a Christmas Wedding, two reindeer pulling a beautiful golden sleigh with the Wedding cake sitting proud on top displaying the couples names and the Bride and Groom moulded in icing.

We took the grooms men and of course the handsome Groom (David) out for their photographs, we like to take some shots of the Grooms men prior to the wedding ceremony, looking for those smooth manly looking photos “if the guys are up for it” we put thought into all our images and of course like to help create a moody look for the boys “and why not?” us guys like to look good too!

When we walked into the Bridal suit, the beautiful Katrina was looking stunning, the hair stylist was just adding the finishing touches to Trina's tiara, this Bride looked incredible; our preparations photography “for us” is all about capturing the mood and excitement of the morning, we work in our reportage style taking those photo's that tell the story for the Bride and Groom, real images, real feelings, real photography, our skill is to document the day, as mentioned before, we dislike images that have been setup (Groom looking at his watch etc etc) we want to capture the real smiles, looks, eye contact, hands touching, real emotion.

Katrina's wedding gown was simply stunning, we draped her wedding dress onto the four poster bed, Tracy arranged the bouquet, shoes and all the little trinkets for those pre-wedding photo's, we then waited whist Trina's Bridesmaids helped her into her wedding gown and when Katrina was ready we re-entered the Bridal suit and began taking photos of the beautiful Bride in her wedding dress. Katrina looked breathtaking, such a beautiful Bride.

The ceremony was wonderful, (Civil) we loved photographing the eye contact between David and Katrina, anticipating those looks, those smiles.

We then took the wedding couple outside for their Group photo's (we always suggest no more that 5, we want our wedding couples to remember their wedding, their day as the day flies by) we then spent 20mins with Katrina and David photographing those romantic images. Its a lovely time for the Bride and Groom to be together.

The speeches were superb, just the right length, we obviously documented this for the couple, the cutting of the cake and then the first dance.

It was a magical winter wedding, we didn't have snow but it truly was a winter wedding here in Somerset.
