Courtney & James
When Courtney and James engaged me to record their wedding I was thrilled but somewhat in awe of the location. The magnificent gothic atmosphere has the capacity to overshadow the proceedings but not so on this occasion. The radiance of Courtney and the beaming smile of James threw enough light to brighten any room of anywhere that has the slightest resemblance to a spooky room in a Hollywood set for a haunted castle or mansion. In fact, the choice was perfect. The challenge I expected with the lighting was made so much easier thanks to the natural ease of the bridal couple and the main bridal party.
I loved the mix of olde worlde and modern that was requested and we seemed to span a whole slew of different decades from romantic Edwardian , elegant Victorian, austere 50s, arty 70s and uber-modern noughties. The pictures may have turned out to be a study of dark and light, but one thing is undeniable – the obvious love of Courtney and James.
It was a great day and a pleasure to record some special memories to be enjoyed by the couple and their family, friends and guests. Everyone at Dreamlife hopes James and Courtney are pleased with the results and we wish all the very best for a very happy life together.
