Juliana and Adham were married at the amazing St Bartholomew the Great in London (not far off 900 years old!) followed by an equally cool reception venue, The Crypt. Both doctors, Adham and Juliana met just over the road from St Bartholomew’s at the hospital they were both working in, so it was even more special for them. The ceremony was at 5pm in December and the venues were lit pretty much by candles only. As you can expect it was pretty dark! Dark in light levels only… spirits were high and the whole atmosphere of the day was brilliant. Such a pleasure to work with such an easy going, fun couple! As you can see in the photos below, guests weren’t shy either, and the dance floor was packed all night!
Winter Wedding Photography Tips: For those of you having winter weddings, make sure you ask your photographer to see some low-light work. Having a fantastic wedding portfolio full of bright sunny outdoor photos is great, but not a very good indicator of their skills at photographing your wedding when the lighting becomes a lot more tricky. For this wedding, knowing we wouldn’t have much available light, we made sure we had a good look round the venues before the big day to plan where we would take photos. By arriving at the hotel where everyone was getting ready earlier in the afternoon, we were able to get some shots outside (using Smithfield market as a background, nice!).
Winter wedding photography require certain skills, and this is one area you really will get what you pay for. I have invested a huge amount in top of the range cameras and lenses that allow me to capture low light images, multiple flashes and lots of other bits and pieces!
