I love this shot of the bridesmaids’ bouquets at this wedding in June at Rosleague Manor in County Galway, Ireland. The seasonal bouquets are so simple but very pretty and the colours look fantastic against the background of the red bridesmaids’ dresses.
This pic was taken by Charlie Pinder, a London based photographer – a lovely mix of colours.
You may have seen Gemma Reynolds’ work in Conde Nast “Brides” Magazine earlier this year (she was the Central London Wedding Photographer in their May/June 09 directory, and has been asked back for Jan/Feb 2010). She has also recently been asked by British Vogue to be in their top 12 recommended wedding photographers for Dec 09 issue so its not only me that is her loving her very talented and creative work. Check out these pics below which show examples of her work….
A few words from Gemma herself on these photos and her work….
“I photographed some beautiful Vintage Brides at “Preston Court” in Canterbury. It is such a stunning venue and really enabled the brides to just feel free and at ease, as it should be. Wedding photography is a lot of fun and I really enjoy having the chance to bring out the best in people. Some of the venue’s in the photographs also include The Tythe Barn in Bicester, The Dorchester London, and The Harbour Heights in Sandbanks”
“As well as photographing Weddings, I also use a beautiful studio in central London W1 and have a very strong team of make-up artists at hand. Here I offer brides the chance to have photographs taken before their wedding as a wonderful gift for their loved one, or even just for them! Some of my girls have given it to ‘him’ on the Wedding night, and others saved it right up to the honeymoon. It can be done in what ever style you wish. We can use wedding lingerie, or ‘his’ comfy shirt with your favourite stiletto’s? Whichever ever era you adore too. These can be put together to form a little black photograph album in a cute little black suitcase. I call it the book of ‘I Love You’s’ ”
“After your wedding day, brides can also come back to the studio, or we can venture to a location of your choice, and do a ‘fashion style’ shoot in your wedding dress. This is a great opportunity to really get the best out of that incredible dress. These can make wonderful additions to your final wedding album or a one off framed portrait for your home. This shoot does not have to be just for the bride, as you may prefer to have the groom present too, and even close family and bridesmaids.”
