Manor by the Lake Wedding Photographer – Jessica & Paul at Manor by the Lake, Cheltenham.
Hi, I’m Pete and I’m a documentary wedding photographer who photographs weddings throughout Cheltenham and Gloucester.
One of the hottest days of the heatwave and so we waited until the evening for the cooler air the golden light for most of the portraits. The light and shadow played a key roll in these later images and the wind picked up which lifted Jessica’s veil creating some fabulous dynamic moments. Jessica and Paul booked me for the whole day from bridal preparations to the first dance and it was a fabulous day filled with a multitude of amazing moments to capture. Jessica and Paul have quite different personalities and this difference in character was a joy to photograph. Jessica’s exuberant expressive nature was in contrast to Paul’s calm and gentle nature and the two at the right moment, gave me no end of hilarious and romantic shots that really captured the uniqueness of their relationship and the bond between them. Some of the funniest candid moment’s were just after the speeches when Paul was blindfolded and Jessica had to navigate him through a series of obstacles. This very funny game had everyone laughing and cheering as Paul negotiated a series of questions and objects in his path on the way to his bride.
My approach is as always, to be as unobtrusive as possible so that an authentic documentary of your wedding story is told. I take a very wide range of photos using different techniques in camera on the day and during the editing process. My aim is to create something truly magical especially with those wonderful moments where the universe has intervened and this could be a sudden gust of wind that animated the dress and veil or a burst of laughter and antics from the bridal party.
