GERS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

The crazy beautiful wedding of Livvy & Alex.

Well it wasn’t that ‘crazy’, but it was beautiful!

There are some weddings I absolutely hate to leave, but unless I’ve got a room next door, pitch a tent in the grounds, or sleep in the car, I have to.

Such was the case with Livvy & Alex’s wedding. But I am getting ahead of myself…

It started with an enquiry maybe 9 months ago.

There are some enquiries which for whatever reason are never going to go anywhere. That’s normal, – I can’t book them all.

Then there are some enquiries that are dead certs in regard to becoming a booking.

Livvy & Alex’s was one such enquiry, which is good, otherwise this post would not exist!

We had a chat on the phone one evening and that was that, we were set.

In the lead up to this wedding, everything pointed towards it being a perfect match of photographer and couple.

It’s not all about having the grandest venue (though Chateau d’Arlens is certainly very fine).

It’s not all about having the best suppliers. They didn’t have any! (More in Part 02 in that regard).

It’s ALL about the people. It always is.

If you don’t like ‘bad language’ look away now, but the tattoo on Livvy’s foot said it all; “bollocks to the wellingtons”.

‘Withnail and I’ fans? You bet. Guess what? So am I!

Sometimes the stars align. At Livvy & Alex’s wedding, they did once again.

Below, some highlights from the 1/2 day prior that some 90% of my clients opt for as it gives the perfect opportunity to:

Meet, usually for the first time, get to know each other so we are not strangers on the wedding day plus extensive background/landscape photo-shoot, relaxed couple only pre-wedding shoot followed by low-key coverage of evening drinks or similar.

Part 02 here.

“Simon was the only professional at our “handmade wedding” and we knew we chose the right guy from day one. He maintained a good level of contact on the run up with very helpful hints and tips and then blended in seamlessly to both the rehearsal dinner and the wedding. He even provided us with a small mountain of fresh figs from his garden which we used in our starter platters for the wedding breakfast.
We were gently coached through some shoots but mostly he went into espionage mode. The results were fantastic, very natural photos that reflected our “home-made” theme while capturing us and our guests enjoying the celebrations. Very very happy”.
