What an amazing day with Sally & Kieran at their wedding at the Ramada Jarvis Hotel, Whitfield. Foul weather, gale force winds and poor light didn't stop this wonderful couple enjoying themselves and many images were taken on the day. This would have been fine but for one thing! The prepared plan was to take the couple to Russell Gardens, a local beauty spot with architectural features, water, cascades and spring flowers rather than the limited photo opportunities the hotel could offer. We left the wedding guests to their post ceremony drinks and some catch up time. All excited, we drove down to the car park opposite the gardens. As i opened the car doors the heavens opened with torrential rain.
Being a very rational couple, they both said that it was too awful to carry on, not to worry as they were more than happy with the shots they already had. Thinking about it later, I realised that if they were willing and the weather was favourable we could continue the shoot the next day and that is exactly what we did!
Although the next day was still bitterly cold, the sun was shining and the couple were up for it. We spent an hour in the gardens and created the shots I was looking for. The result was a very happy couple!
I am sharing the kind words they wrote about me and Stradling Photography:
"Geoff is an absolutely fantastic photographer. It has been two days since our wedding and we already have most of the photos. I cannot stop looking at them. So much care and thought has gone into each shot! Thank you so much for capturing each precious moment Geoff"................. Sally
My new wife has already said it but I wanted to say it myself. What a fantastic service! Thank you so much for capturing our special day Geoff!........... Kieran
