Documentary Wedding Photographer The Talbot Inn
Documentary Wedding Photographer Surrey
I love being a documentary wedding photographer! My signature approach to covering a wedding always brings a wedding album to life, as the guests let me into their day, oblivious to my presence as i try to blend seamlessly into the wedding.
Amy and John had booked me 18 months ahead of their wedding day, after meeting me at a Wedding Fair in Surrey. Their wedding was held at the lovely Talbot Inn, in the picture postcard village of Ripley in Surrey.
I drove to Amy’s parents house in Aldershot, for the preparations, before shooting back across Surrey to cover the ceremony in the conservatory at the Talbot Inn. We had a fine day to enable the guests to enjoy as they chatted at the drinks reception, in the gardens at the back of the hotel.
Amy and John suggested that they would like a couple of images created a short drive away with an old ruined abbey in the background, so we all jumped in to the Bentley and left the wedding guests to relax for 15 minutes or so. Once back at the wedding and after a few family shots, it was back to my documentary wedding photographer mode. I really enjoy seeking out images that capture the essence of the day as it unfolds.
A fascinating part of the day is always the way the children present interact and perform and i managed to capture a few terrific images of them in action.
After a few short speeches, the guests went out into the courtyard to enjoy further drinks and an ice cream in the evening sunshine.
The whole day seemed to be extremely relaxed and happiness and it was great to be apart of Amy and John’s very special day.
Below are a few of my favourite moments.
