Tom & Tam’s Wedding at Arnos Vale
I absolutely love shooting a wedding at Arnos Vale. You know if someone is getting married at the Underwood Centre it’s going to be a fun and relaxed day and Tom and Tam’s day was no exception! It was a bit of a chilly October afternoon, but they kept their guests warm after the ceremony with a firepit, hot chocolates and toasted marshmallows. What more could you want for an Autumn day?!
These two opted for a smaller wedding photography package, so went for my half day option (which covers 4-5 hours) and chose to start their coverage about half an hour before the ceremony. It was such a nice, relaxed start to the day with only the closest family and friends surrounding them, and although there were some nerves on both the bride and the groom’s side, they soon settled as soon as the ceremony started and you can see how much they giggled and laughed throughout – so excited to get married!
Afterwards, everyone milled around by the fire and definitely enjoyed the sweets and toasted marshmallows. It was such a chilled out atmosphere and a really lovely way to spend a couple of hours. After they’d had a chance to catch up with everyone, I took Tam and Tom off for a short walk around Arnos Vale for their wedding photos! You really don’t have to walk far for a contrast in great backdrops – there’s the gravestones, the forest which looks amazing in autumn, and my favourite, the graffiti house! I love using all these spots and you don’t need to go far. I know it’s important not to be too far away from your guests on your wedding day. Tom and Tam were so great in front of the camera. They’re just so happy it really didn’t take a lot of prompting to get them looking natural and smiling! I really enjoyed spending time with them and trying out a few different spots. The autumnal light was just perfect for wedding photos as well!
After a couple of casual group photos, Tom and Tam lead all their guests to the Knowle for a casual pub lunch reception which is where I left them. They had exactly the wedding day they wanted, and it was so perfect for them!
