Wedding Styling - venue and client guide.......
When I meet with my clients we often find ourselves discussing the theme, the style the feel of the Wedding that they are planning. I have been fortunate to shoot in many different locations giving me a wealth of Photography experience and a little knowledge as to what sets each wedding apart.
Each Wedding is unique to the couple and has essences of them within the styling.
A few tips.
Let the building to the talking -
If you have hired a stately home or listed church you really need to let the history of the architecture tell the story. A simple colour palate of soft sage greens as pictured beautifully styled and set of the opulence that the building offered at this Gray's Court Wedding in York http://www.grayscourtyork.com
Let Nature be your Photography backdrop -
My favourite place to shoot is at Market Place Farm in South Cave. Their weddings are set amongst the undulating historic family hills and vineyards. The colour and vibrance of the setting fosters a wonderful canvas for Portrait Photographs on the big day with very little to add in styling of the venue itself. http://www.marketplacefarm.co.uk
Detail yourselves -
I have covered some weddings where pictures of the parents marrying at the same church sit at the alter. Weddings were a story board has been created to show the passing of time of the couple and the memories that loved ones can often also recall. The vibrancy of what makes you tick will further tell your story when your Wedding Photographs are delivered to you.

Ask for a little help -
I covered a beautiful Wedding recently that was decorated and styled by the friends and family. The memories and fun that they had whilst all getting hands on with the styling was as precious to the bride as the day itself.
