Beautiful Spring Wedding at Barton Hall | Kirsty & Matt

How I shoot weddings out of season

 

In the last few years, I have seen big changes in trends within the wedding industry.

One of the obvious changes is that there are more and more couples choosing to get married out of the main wedding season which is generally between May and the end of September.

With the unpredictable English weather, a nice sunny day is never guaranteed even in the summer months, so couples booking off-season are normally setting  their expectation much lower (regarding nice weather) which means when they get a really nice crisp dry day it is a welcomed bonus.

 

I have shot many rainy weddings during the summer “premium” months and on the other side, I have shot equally as many weddings between October and April with the most glorious sunny weather.

One thing I know for sure, bad weather never ruined any wedding.

I’ll never forget shooting a wedding on 20th December at Barton Hall and it was 21 degrees !!! The following year the wedding couple were blessed with 2 inches of crisp fresh snow.

One just never knows.

 

My advise to all couples would be ; don’t worry about the weather !!! Once you set the date there’s nothing you can do about it and you are fully in the hands of Mother Nature.

There’s no need to check the forecast weeks before the day as I’ve been told (by one of weather forecast high authorities) even 24 hours before the day the forecast can be statistically only 50% accurate !!

And if it comes to it and the weather does not turn out how you’d envisioned…embrace it !! You have just one day for which you’ve been planning for months sometimes years so be sure you make the most of it !!

 

From a photographers point of view out of season weddings are much more challenging due to a lack of natural light.

I personally love shooting weddings out of season as I have to push my self much harder and I am forced to think outside the box and take pictures in places which I would normally wouldn’t consider.

At least 90 percent of my work is capturing all the precious moments of the day in my own unique documentary style, after dark I love to create some dramatic arty portraits. Time is super precious so after finding the right spot ( I do this the wedding breakfast) I will set up my flashes ready for when the time is right.

For me good knowledge of working with artificial flash light is crucial and can make all the difference between a  mediocre shot and a piece

There’s no need to check the forecast weeks before the day,  even 24 hours before the day the forecast can be statistically only 50% accurate !! (a previous bride is a meteorologist)

If on your big day the weather does not turn out how you’d envisioned…embrace it !! You have just one day for which you’ve been planning for months sometimes years so be sure you make the most of it !!

Kirsty and Matt decided to get married at Barton Hall in the middle of March. On the day there was a lot of  intermittent rain and strong winds,  but you will see from the pictures this didn’t affect their amazing wedding in any way whatsoever. The love and laughter from this couple surrounded by their friends and family provided all the warmth and brightness required.

When I asked Kirsty and Matt to give a pieces of advice for all the couples who are planning their wedding they answered :
“Enjoy it, and try not to stress. It’s the best of your lives and it will be how it’s meant to and if something minor doesn’t go 100 % right, it’s very likely that you or anyone else won’t even notice!”
