I joind Cariosa at her hotel on the cascade ventnor where we had a fantastic times getting ready, Cariosa's brothers were the bridesmaids and were so funny so much so that I have never seen such a relaxed bride....lol
I then went to see Lloyd at his parents home just a short trip up the road, much more traditional to still relaxed especially when one of the groomsmen tried his first drop of whisky!
Back to the best part of the getting ready photo's I really enjoy this part of the day for its emotions and seeing the brides realise itsall getting real..
I thought we were going out the door to the church, when Cariosa asked for some images on the glass deck, this totally through me as the cameras were packed and I had not even seen the deck no pressure then Martin especially shooting into the sun!
This first shot was not quite where I wanted it exposure wise as I had to get the background showing and the faces natural not all dark.
Then I got the flash settings and ambiant settings to match and beautiful images happened :-)
Now we are off to the church.
This church is so small it only takes about 50 people and you can only photograph down the middle or over the heads of people.
Now the fun starts a few congratulations in the church yard then off to the Botanical gardens.
On arrival its off to find everyone for drinks and a few fun pic's!
Hmm, a little enthusiastic haha.
We ran out of time for the tunnel shots so I asked Lloyd & Cariosa to just chat and do what ever they liked under these lights, to my delight they started to dance and twirl, a few different edits for the fun of it.
And then it was time for the real first dance to an amazing live band from I think London?
I always use off camera flash on the first dance pictures where possible as it gives you those all important shadows and lit areas, it just works for BW images.
And thats it, just a small part of Lloyd & Cariosa's beautiful wedding.
