As Promised, here are a few of our favorite shots from Helen & Steven’s Morland House Cumbrian wedding, enjoy.
Keep an eye out on Adam’s Blog (www.lake-district-wedding-photography.co.uk/blog) where you will be able to see more amazing shots of the day in the future.
We were actually second shooting stills for our good friend Adam (Lake District Wedding Photography) at Morland house Cumbria and had discussed shooting some film as the venue, and the couple, were too good an opportunity to miss. Helen and Steve kindly agreed, so this is the first trailer shot by Simon alone; without his wingman,tutor and all round film guru Warren!
Helen and Steve (Ste, Steven, Stevo, Keogh, half pint or the milky bar kid as he is known!) were a wonderful couple and we could see how much thought and effort they had put into their day from the outset. Friends and family spent the previous days helping them too, decking out the marque with all manner of personal touches from photos to an amazing fudge favour and Helen’s dad ensured no health and safety violations had occurred.
Morland house holds a very special place in their hearts, they actually met at the Morland Chorister camp at the tender ages of 11 and 12. Steve, being the elder, went about gaining Helen’s affections (as you would expect at that age) by writing to her brother Matthew and asking him to say hello to his sister for him!
Romance did finally blossom between the two and Morland house and Church was the only venue for them to celebrate their wedding with family and friends.
It was a beautiful day and an absolute delight to be there, and I hope this little surprise goes some way to thanking them for allowing us to be part of it.
come back soon for the stills of the day.
Happy New Year everyone from Team Courting Whale. A Little post of one of our favourites from 2012, enjoy.
From the day we first met Bethany and Grant to go and see their lovely wedding venue, The Priory Barn, we knew it was going to be a great day and we would be working with a great couple.
Being a couple that work in the events industry they had it all planned to a T, Calm wasn’t the word, from Grant booking the honeymoon on the morning of the wedding, to Bethany not even batting a eyelid even when a stray pair of hair tongs tried to give her a Harry Potter style mark on her forehead!!
The weather was as perfect as the venue and the day flew by. To get 20 minutes of a couples time during such a special day for photographs is all you could want, we were lucky enough to have so much more. Bethany and Grant really were a perfect couple, allowing us to spend some great moments with them and their lively wedding party.
Thank you to them and their kind family and friends who we met throughout the day.
Having had such a lovely time at my cousin Maria’s wedding to George (as a guest no less!!) I had to do a small post of the day. We had perfect weather and a beautfiful small church in Blean, Kent. The wedding reception was held at my uncles house in Whitstable so we were able to party until late in the evening.
We are very pleased to announce that courting whale now offers wedding photography in conjunction with our cinematic wedding films. Taking the same care and attention we use to shoot your wedding film, mixed with our love of all things wedding, we deliver a modern reportage style photographic story of your day.
Our stills package can be taken in addition to, or separate of, your wedding film. Please take a look on our packages for more information.
The Royal Marines Museum Portsmouth was the brilliant setting for Anna and Steve's wedding. We got a beautifully sunny day on the south coast, set off perfectly with the steel band Steve arranged for Anna, unbeknown to anyone, as a surprise. Weddings are always a day when the bride and groom really show their personalities, and this one was no different. Anna and Steve met while trekking in Nepal on their way to Everest base camp, their tables were adorned with Buddhist prayer flags, it was a great day for a lovely couple.
Anna is actually the curator of the museum and has promised me a return visit to get a much closer than normal look at the exhibit, not sure Anna knows what she has let herself in for there! Enjoy.
