Wedding Photography at Lemore Manor, Herefordshire.
Back in the wonderful month of September I spent a couple of weekends at Lemore Manor, Herefordshire, shooting two sensational wedding days. First up was Claire and Craig's special day, followed by Lucy and Derren's wedding day the following weekend.
When I first met with Lucy and Derren they told me that they were not looking for someone to take a lot of 'formal' group photographs... indeed, they didn't ask for any at all.... which was wonderful for me... lots of time to spend working in a candid, documentary fashion. This, coupled with the life size cut out of Snoop Dogg that greeted their guests was a clear sign that this was going to be a fantastic day.... and I wasn't wrong! It was also great to see my insanely talented friend Tabitha Maccurach Paine doing Lucy's hair. If you are looking for a hair stylist look no further... she is amazing!

Lucy and Derren were actually married in the nearby Herefordshire village of Almeley at St. Marys church. This in itself created one of those weird coincidences.... I have only photographed one other wedding at St. Marys ... a wedding that took place over three years ago. At the same time I was editing Lucy and Derren's images I was asked to create an album for Sonny and Gail. Why do these coincidences seem to happen all the time?
Once married, it was back to Lemore Manor to celebrate.
Working for Lucy and Derren has been an absolute delight. Wonderfully friendly people who were happy for me to just get on with my work whilst they got on with enjoying their day. Here are a few more of their wedding photographs!
