Newbury Manor Hotel Wedding Photography – Eleanor and Matt in the snow
It’s not often I get to photograph a wedding in the snow, especially not in March! This time I was up at Newbury Manor Hotel after a wonderful service with a very relaxed vicar at st marks church in cold ash. We had planned to go to donnington castle ruins, but, alas with the snow and an old austin we decided that it was perhaps not the best idea!
So we started off with snow and ended up with sunshine! A wedding in the snow highlights the importance of professional photography – backup equipment – ensuring that things aren’t misted up going from warm-to-cold is essential too. I love this first shot in the snow of some guests arriving with typical british chagrin as they arrive smiling in suits.
We then have a wonderful portrait of Matt and Eleanor shot into the sun to show off the wonderful backdrop to their wedding. You’d never guess you were in Newbury just off an A-road! superb (thanks to all the staff and Newbury Manor hotel – you guys rock!).
I’m finishing with 2 images that have a story – the cheeky chap on the left in the first shot took the last shot of the bride and mother (notice the surprised expression). Giving me a run for my money with his composition… maybe in a few years eh?
Anyway enjoy these images and check back for the full wedding in good time. I’m off up to North Devon tomorrow (hopefully not too much snow) to assist my good chum Matt Fryer which is always great fun!.
Of course if you are getting married at Newbury Manor Hotel I would LOVE for you to contact me about your wedding photography (ideally when it’s not half submerged).
Thinking back I believe I have photographed a wedding in the snow in March before with Paul and Amandas wedding at Kingston Country Courtyard. I’ll have to share those photographs soon too!
