Is anyone out there getting married in October?? -if you are then be sure to check out the fab inspiration board for an October Wedding that I published earlier this month – I love the russets, the oranges and the golds….Anyway, I digress because today I wanted to share this wonderful wedding with you from earlier on in the year. Its photographed by one of my new finds – a fantastic british wedding photographer called Jay Rowden.
Love the photo of the ‘to do list’! I featured Jay a while back on LMW (Ellie and Babbs get married in Hampshire) and you guys loved it as it was one of my most popular posts ever. (I also just had a bride email me and tell me she had chosen him as her wedding photographer after seeing that wedding on LMW) Here is a selection of photos from Katie and Phil’s wedding in Norfolk…I like the vintagey feel of these photos, Jay explained he used a preset in the lightroom (special software) to create the look, but that he has also given the couple normal graded shots too. According to Jay the weather wasn’t great but it managed to rain and then just clear up in time for the wedding. The wedding took place at the medieval church of St Bartholomews in the village of Brisley
“This was a very special church and the light was out of this world.
In fact the light in North Norfolk was extraordinary.
We all had a fabulous day, in spite of the wind.
In fact, I really liked the windswept images in the field.
Maybe I should invest in a wind machine and bring one along to every wedding???” I wanted to find out from Jay what was the best thing for him about photographing this wedding….
“I loved the intimacy of this wedding. It wasn’t one of those weddings where hundreds of guests were invited who didn’t really know each other. Everybody seemed to know each other and the atmosphere was really fabulous. I’ve also got a bit of thing for country weddings – living in London it’s always a great privilege to drive for miles to get away from the old smoke and be stuck in the middle of nowhere, where for once you haven’t got a reception on your mobile!!!
the bride and groom were also, it was plain to me, very very in love. one, two, three….ahhhhhhh.
apologies, i am an old romantic at heart!”
Yes I think you are! But that is probably one of the reasons that your photographs tell such a lovely story. Be sure to check out Jay Rowden’s site and his blog where you can see more of his fabulous work.
Thanks so much Jay for letting me feature this lovely wedding on LMW and Katie & Phil wishing you a happy future together.
