Autumn and Winter Weddings

February 17, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Autumn and Winter Weddings: Crisp, still, autumn and winter mornings, the mist like gossamer lies between the contours of the earth; and the golden rays of sunrise augment the subtle shades of red, browns and yellows of the autumn leaves as the colours spill from the woodland; this can be the most spell binding season for a wedding. When choosing a colour scheme for your wedding it is easy to choose from the array of beautiful pastel shades that complement the natural autumnal colours and an ivory wedding dress can help reduce the harsh contrast of white in autumn sunshine.

The flowers, the dress, even the cake lend a sense of continuity from one wedding to the next, yet in every wedding the variation of these three simple elements shows the style and taste of the bride, and allows for the unique personalities of the bride and groom to shine through. Your wedding is not only magical and unique; it is an expression of the love and commitment you have for each other.

If you are planning to have your wedding photographs on a lawn our under the golden canopy of the autumn trees; there are disadvantages that should be considered by the bride and groom in relation to the great British weather, regardless of the time of year, but especially in the Autumn and winter.

wedding photographer & wedding photographyThe first is that most brides, and indeed a large percentage of the female guests, choose to wear shoes with heals. With the even the most well drained garden the tendency is to sink into the soft earth, often ruining those delicate and expensive shoes. It is advisable if you are planning to have photographs in the grounds of your wedding venue to have a spare pair of flat shoes, so not to damage your wedding shoes. Having comfortable footwear to change into will help keep your feet from becoming painful and will help lessen fatigue, keeping you happy and full of fun late into the evening.

The second issue is the ever present threat of rain; but rain need not spoil your day or your photographs. Utilising the internal decor of your wedding venue is the first and most obvious place to start. But with a little imagination and the use of umbrellas the photographs can be fun and surprisingly atmospheric. Remember to use your bride's maids to, to both hold the umbrellas and to keep the train of your wedding dress off the wet ground.

One final issue to highlight is 'low light', Autumn nights draw in quickly, and if there is cloud cover then the day appears to be even shorter. In late afternoon the quality of light can be very poor. Try to schedule in to your day, as early as possible, time to spend getting those all important images that will last a lifetime. After all, the cake is eaten, the flowers wilt, and the dress may be worn once, but it is your photographs that will help carry the memory of your wedding day, and it is those images that will be shared with your children and grandchildren in years to come.

One of the best wedding venues in Leicestershire is Catthorpe Manor; where together with the stately ambiance of the old Manor House and the elegant, mature grounds your wedding photographs will have the elegance and sophistication you deserve. Although, with such a wonderful setting, any time of the year will create an atmosphere of serene and composed beauty as a backdrop for your wedding.

A lot of couples love quirky photographs; but often on the day the 'happy couple' are not so happy to try out some of those same poses on the day that they originally wanted because they find they are too embarrassed. This is natural and if you find that on your wedding day you decide to change the style of photographs, then your wedding photographer should be understanding and accommodating, remember, it is your day, and it is your wedding album; you need to feel happy and comfortable with both the photographer and the photographs. Above all, enjoy your wedding and enjoy having your photographs taken.

My first wedding photography was when I was 17 years of age. Both the equipment has change over time as has my style and ability. Photography has been a passion for over 30 years. In fact probably over 40 years, but 30 since I purchased my first SLR Camera. It was a Richo XR7 and at the time it was a top of the rage camera. Now I shoot with the Canon 5D Mk ii.
