Nicola can meet you at your chosen venue around four weeks before your big day. At this meeting we discuss the final details of your day and list your chosen group shots ensuring nothing is missed or left to chance. We will then have a completely ‘chilled out’ pre wedding shoot. We will move around your venue taking candid shots of you both and we guarantee that following this shoot you will be completely at ease with your wedding photography.
On your day we will meet with the bride around two hours before your ceremony in order to capture those all important preparation shots. We capture the emotion between you and your parents and no doubt your closest friends. We ensure that we capture the fine detail of your day photographing your dress, shoes jewellery and favourite perfume before you leave to travel to your ceremony. We will then leave the bride and meet with the groom at the church or venue where we will photograph him with the guys and his parents and best man and capture those nervous moments prior to the brides arrival.
During your ceremony we capture the arrival of the bride as she enters the room, we can position ourself at the front and back of your ceremony room. From these two positions we find that we can capture all aspects of your ceremony including those all important looks between you both as you are declared ‘husband and wife’ .
Following the formal ceremony, whilst Glyn orchestrates various group photographs, Nicola discreetly moves amongst the guests capturing genuine emotions of the day; the bride receiving hugs and kisses from her friends, the bride’s mother wiping a tear from her eye. These are the images that define the Shakespeare style. The ability to capture the right shot at the right time turns these moments into everlasting memories.
After you have ‘mingled’ with your guests, it is then time for your photographs, as a newly married couple. The grounds and main building of your venue are used to create wonderful works of both contemporary and traditional photographic art. It is these natural shots that will become some of your most treasured memories.
Capturing genuine emotion on camera is a very difficult. We believe that our relaxed, approachable style ensures that both you and your guests feel comfortable with being photographed and it is through this style that we are able to capture the beautiful images that have become our signature. We are always deeply honoured to be asked to photograph the most important day of peoples’ lives and endeavour to make the experience wholly enjoyable. We promise you an exceptional photographic album which will delight for many years to come.
Following your big day your images will be fully re-touched ensuring that they are as perfect as possible. Your wedding pictures are made into a dvd slideshow & is set to music it is a lovely way to showcase your day. You then have the disc of your images from which you can print from & choose your favourite images to be made into one of our beautiful bespoke Graphi Studio albums.
