On Sunday morning I met up with Nicci & Darren for their Winchester pre-wedding shoot. They are tying the knot in June in Christchurch and we picked this chilly March day to get to know one another better and for Nicci & Darren to get a little comfortable in front of the camera.
We met outside Wolvesey Castle, which was unfortunately closed due to recent snow. We didn’t mind however, as the Kingsgate area around Winchester is packed full of fabulous old stone walls, lovely trees and lots of interesting places to take photographs. We had some fun trying out different poses, and generally just being silly.
I explained that on the wedding day itself, they will barely notice I’m there as my aim is to capture their day in documentary style, without formal posing. However, there will be a short session with them after the group photographs to get some pictures of just the two of them together. This can be much more fun and easier if we’ve had a ‘practice’ run so that Nicci and Darren know what to expect on the day. It also means we can be faster on their wedding day leaving them time to get back to the main business of the day – having a drink and a celebrate with family and friends!
Enjoy a selection of the photographs below, and keep and eye out on the blog in June !
“Thanks again for yesterday, we really enjoyed it! It has made the wedding feel a lot more real and exciting ?
We were very impressed with the photos, and I quote, Darren said “ We are going to have some amazing Wedding Photos!”
