Orchardleigh Walled Garden Wedding Photographer with Matthew and Charlotte
Matt and Charlotte were married in the Walled Garden at Orchardleigh just a couple of weeks ago. The couple booked almost two years ago and it was great to finally see it all come together for them. It was also my second visit to the Orchardleigh walled garden in as many weeks and I’m back again next month for another combined photo and video booking. This summer has been so great in terms of knowing that we don’t need a wet weather plan, but the sun uninhibited by cloud brings its’ own challenges. It’s high in the sky for a large part of the day and if there are no shady spots available, which is true of the walled garden it can be uncomfortable for the couple and their families having to squint while having their photographs taken. I always bring a high powered battery operated light with me so that I can position the couple facing away from the sun to lesson the discomfort and darken the scene down, even when it’s midday to create a dramatic portrait or simply use it to lift the shadows on the faces of the subjects caused by the overhead sun beating down on us.
This is a small selection of the photographs from their day. Their video highlights will follow shortly.
