On a bright sunny day in the middle of August, I was delighted to be the assistant photographer at the wedding of Roopa & Keval. Their Indian wedding ceremony and reception event was held at The Grove – a five-star hotel with spa set in 300 acres of Hertfordshire countryside.
What better way to kick off the 2015 wedding photography season than on a gloriously sunny day at Foxhills Country Club in Surrey. Sam and I had already spent a really fun day on Nishan & Nitisha’s pre-wedding shoot at Durdle Door on the Suffolk coast in April, so I was delighted to be invited back to help Sam photograph their civil wedding and reception.
Getting the flash/Speedlight off the top of the camera moving it to an entirely different position relative to the photographer is a technique that can be used to produce a number of creative effects. At the last couple of wedding receptions we’ve done, I’ve been trying to add a little extra dimension to my images by utilising ‘off camera flash’ during the speeches.
