I have to admit that I was a bit surprised and humbled when Kim first contacted me to be their wedding photographer at Aston Marina, Stone. You see whilst it's not that far away, I don't live very local. I don't rank on Google for the usual search terms I'd expect so was surprised when Kim said she found me via Google.
Apparently they had done a LOT of research and found absolutely no-one locally they liked so expanded their search and kept doing that until they found my website. They loved my natural, candid style mixed with contemporary images. I am so glad they chose me to be their Aston Marina Wedding Photographer.
My first visit to Aston Marina, Stone was for Kim & Mark's pre-wedding photo shoot. We spent some time wandering around the canal and over the bridge. I captured the following spectacular sunset photograph just before we left.
I was really hoping...even praying for a similar sunset for their wedding day.
On the day of their wedding, the weather was quite a mixed bag. We had everything! Wind...rain...and sun. Luckily as an experienced wedding photographer I took it all in my stride and we still captured some amazing photographs.
Being honest I didn't think we'd get a sunset. And it wasn't your traditional sunset but there was a bit of a break in the clouds. The vanishing sun turned the sky purple. I asked Mark to take Kim's hand and walk slowly up the hill. You can see the results for yourself. AMAZING.
Straight afterwards we gathered the guests for a sparkler tunnel. Given the number of guests, it was THE longest tunnel I have ever organised. Miraculously I didn't fall over whilst trying to walk backwards!
I returned back to Nottingham from Aston Marina tired but excited at the photographs taken on Mark & Kim's wedding day.
