Wedding Photography Worcestershire for Kitty and Ben

Wedding Photography Worcestershire Kitty & Ben

Wedding Photography Worcestershire at its best in a poppy field in Rock near Bewdley, Worcestershire. What a lovely day and what a happy find that the field behind the church where Kitty and Ben got married was full of poppies. I had actually planned  to kidnap them and take them down the road to a very spectacular but very well known and busy poppy field in nearby Bewdley, Worcestershire. No need though as we had this field right on the door step. The stile did prove a bit interesting for Kitty in her dress though!

Wedding Photographer Worcestershire Bravo Photography

Wedding Photographer Worcestershire Bravo Photography has just posted wedding photography from the wedding of Eleanor and Mark who got married at Curradine Barns, Shrawley near Worcester on the 20th October. And what a wonderful day we had for it! The weather had been awful all week and although rather foggy at the start of the day this soon lifted and turned into glorious Autumn sun. Autumn weddings are probably my favorite as the chance of good weather is normally very good, you get lovely backdrops of Autumn leaves and it is never too hot!  Although I can’t comment on wedding dresses, I can tell you from personal experience that jacket, waist coat, cravat (and nerves!), can be very uncomfortable indeed in blazing June!

 

Anyway, back to Eleanor and Mark who had made a splendid job of decorating the barns in a very Autumnal fashion with some brilliant and very creatively carved pumpkins which looked great in the day but even better with candles in after dark. Curradine Barns is a great place for a Wedding Photographer Worcestershire to take some great pictures. The bridal apartment upstairs is nicely lit and well furnished which makes for wonderfully relaxed preparation shots.

After a nice ceremony with music provided by one of the guests at the keyboard we had group shots and a drink in the court yard. After getting all the essential shots quickly and efficiently it was time for little wander with the very happy couple. Curradine Barns is great for really relaxed and varied shots of the couple with a short walk giving a nice variety of shots with a nice rural theme (including sheep), a bit of grunge with an old barn door and a wonderful Autumn tree in the near by church yard.

Photographer Bewdley shoots bridesmaid at wedding

Photographer Bewdley shoots bridesmaid at wedding!

For a Photographer Bewdley. getting good shots of children at weddings can be one of the more interesting parts of the job. For ‘interesting’ read ‘damned hard! Well, sometimes it can be a doddle for a Photographer Bewdley. but on others it can require guile and low down cunning. (it is a great pity that giving sweets to small children is rather frowned upon these days!).

On this particular day of a wedding near Bewdley. Worcestershire. I had been warned that I was going to have my work cut out with this particular example of a lively little girl. As it happened on this Photographer Bewdley. she was on her best behaviour. and we were rewarded with this stunning shot that the happy couple, her parents and of course, she can cherish forever.

Kids are an important part of most weddings. although I do as a Photographer Bewdley. get some where they are completely banned! Whether this is just because there are no suitable children available or if they might have disgraced themselves at a previous wedding. I shall leave up to your imagination.

In my experience as a Photographer Bewdley. the best weddings for children are when they are fully included in the proceedings yet provision has been made for their own entertainment. catering and relaxation. i.e. a quick nap. Actually a quick nap might improve the mood of a few grown up guests sometimes! Seriously. on a practical note. you cannot always expect a little person to suddenly fit in with eating times that can be quite out of the ordinary for them. To overcome hunger inspired temper tantrums. then a good idea is to provide a quick snack or even packed lunch. for the little ones as I know personally no one as at their best when they are hungry!

Worcestershire Wedding Photographer captures great Sunset Photography

Worcestershire wedding photographer captures brilliant sunset!

Worcestershire wedding photographer captures great sunset, oh and a very happy couple as well! Even this was not quite the end to a fantastic day as it was rounded off nicely with fireworks. Another challenge for a photographer.

Anyone who has ever tried to photograph a sunset will know that cameras and print shops, tend to have very different ideas about how the finished photograph should look. The trick to getting it right is not to give the camera any say in the matter! To get consistent results you have to use manual settings which not all cameras have and not all users know where they are if they do. All my cameras being horribly expensive professional equipment do and what’s more I know how to use them!

The added complication of the sunset shot for the Worcestershire wedding photographer is that there is a newly wed couple wanting to get in on the shot and be lit nicely. This is where off camera flash and manual control comes into play. This takes yet another expensive bit of kit in the form of an infra red controller for the flash, a powerful compatible flash gun oh and lots of batteries.

The trick to using this set up is that you in effect use two exposures – one to get the back ground right and the other controlled by the flash out put to get the couple right which is possible as the flash does not travel any where near far enough to effect the back ground exposure. Sound complicated? Well yes it is a bit which is why you need a professional

Worcestershire wedding photographer to get the best pictures when it really matters. Guess what? I think I might be able to recommend one!

Worcester photographer gets creative wedding photography in Worcestershire church

Worcester photographer gets creative wedding photography in Worcestershire church.

A common compliant when I talk to other Worcester photographer and one of the most frequent questions I get from people wanting to start up in wedding photography is the problem of taking good pictures in churches. The results of this are two fold; either they are put off taking up wedding photography or they carry on and give their clients poor results. Neither of these results need be the case of course as I prove time and time again.

To get good results in a church however you do need to develop a good technique and rather deep pockets as you do need top quality equipment to get the best results. When people are asking me for advice (which they do on a very regular basis – it never fails to amaze me how many guests at weddings are thinking of taking up wedding photography! Do we need another  Worcester photographer?). They almost invariably want to talk about cameras but I always maintain that a good lens is a lot more important than the camera it is attached to.

As a Worcester photographer all my lenses have a very wide aperture of f2.8 which stays constant however much you zoom in. This is very important as a lot of cheap lenses automatically close up the aperture as you zoom in. To get a tiny bit technical this means that the hole in the lens is as wide as possible so as much light as possible is available at the sensor. The slight draw back of this wide aperture is that the depth of field is reduced. Sorry, getting a bit technical again, this is how much of the picture is in focus. Not actually an issue for a good Worcester photographer though as this means that the couple can be nicely in focus yet the back ground can be nicely hazy – a very pleasing and professional result.

Kidderminster Worcestershire photographer at Stone Manor

Kidderminster Worcestershire photographer gets great wedding pictures at  Stone Manor.

Kidderminster Worcestershire photographer, Bravo Photography really likes weddings at Stone Manor Hotel near Kidderminster, Worcestershire and not only because I can walk there! Not that I could with all the gear I take to weddings – much of which is only used in in emergencies, but have to take it anyway.

Aside from being this Kidderminster Worcestershire photographer s closest wedding photography venue it does have a good range of easily accessible photography locations. To go from the start, the rooms upstairs at the back of the hotel have a wonderful directional light from the windows which can really pick out the eyes as in this shot here. OK, so they are not the biggest rooms ever which can lead to the Kidderminster Worcestershire photographer having to be a bit of a contortionist, but all in a days work.

It is then easy for the Kidderminster Worcestershire photographer, Bravo Photography to nip down stairs to the bar where you will usually find the groom. Incidentally it is a point of honour with me that I will never divulge how much Dutch courage was necessary for either party! But gentlemen, please don’t get caught out by imbibing too many pints especially before a long church wedding ceremony – they often don’t have any loos!

Stone Manor near Kidderminster, Worcestershire has a number of different rooms available for wedding ceremonies depending on the number of people attending. Which ever one you chose though it is then easy to get everyone together for a great group shot. Kidderminster Worcestershire photographer, Bravo Photography can do this either around the fountain ay the front of the hotel which is ideal for up to about fifty guests. If you have more guests then the lawns at the back of Stone Manor near Kidderminster, Worcestershire are ideal.

Worcester wedding photographer photographs Ring on Finger

Worcester wedding photographer photographs Ring on Finger in church.

Worcester wedding photographer, Bravo photography uses great camera technique to get get brilliant photographs of exchange of rings in Worcestershire church. Often regarded as being one of the trickiest locations for wedding photography the traditional church does have it’s challenges.  These are mostly down to the low light levels that are usually encountered but also often due to restrictions placed on where the Worcester wedding photographer can photograph from either due to the layout of the church, the choir and sometimes – (but not often!), from an awkward vicar.

I shall take this opportunity as a professional Worcester wedding photographer to point out that I am always the absolute epitome of discretion when under taking wedding photography in a church, or anywhere else for that matter. As a Worcester wedding photographer I often do hear horror stories, usually from vicars, of totally unprofessional behavior from some wedding photographers. These have varied from photographers climbing on pillars or pews to get a better shot, walking up to the alter during exchange of rings again to get a better shot to even asking to couple to reenact the exchange of rings during the ceremony!

Well Worcester wedding photographer, Bravo photography has a much better plan and involves two cameras, a tripod, a mono pod, a wide angled lens, a tele photo lens and a remote release. This approach, which I have never found another Worcester wedding photographer using, means that I essentially get two shots at the same time. Thus, I can get the over all picture of the couple and the detail of the exchange of rings as in this picture. The cameras being held steady by the tripod or mono pod means that they are vibration free and thus give an exceptionally clear shot like you see here.

Kidderminster Photographer off his trolley!

Kidderminster Photographer, Bravo photography had some great fun at this wedding with the bride and groom who were clearly up for a bit of fun. Just to prove that it is all down hill from here on in Erica gave Paul the shove – down the track on this interesting little device. The speeds it got up to were actually quite scarey giving Kidderminster Photographer a bit of a challenge in getting the shot which we actually did in just one take. I am sure Paul would have not objected to another couple of runs but we had  a lot of other shots to get in a very short space of time.

This was one of the more interesting weddings for Kidderminster Photographer, Bravo Photography as we had great locations to play with and lots and lots of ideas but some very, very dramatic weather to contend with. Torrential rain, thunder, lightening and a terrific hail storm all added interest. The up shot of all this was once it did stop raining there were so great skies for Kidderminster Photographer, Bravo Photography to use as back drops for the couple.

This wedding was a bit of a journey for Kidderminster Photographer Bravo photography as the ceremony was in Bletchly (in the church attached to the rather famous Bletchley Park), and the reception at Aspley Guise, Bedfordshire. Kidderminster Photographer, Bravo Photography met Erica and Paul at the NEC Wedding Fair where they kindly told everyone who was nearby that I was by far and away the best wedding photographer there! Thanks for that and I think it might have worked as had a very busy couple of days with lots and lots of bookings so that made me very happy.

So although I am a Kidderminster Photographer I can and do work all over the country.

Worcestershire photographer Bravo Photography at Hampton Court, Leominster, Herefordshire.

Worcestershire photographer Bravo Photography, really enjoyed this wedding at the rather wonderful Hampton Court near Leominster, Herefordshire. Please note the Herefordshire part of the address so as not to confuse it with another Hampton Court with a bit of a connection to Henry the Eighth. The poor staff there do have to field quite a number of enquiries from people who are not up to scratch on their geography or history. This reminds me of the a story told to me once by a friend who lived in Alton, Hampshire. She was once stopped by a coach driver asking directions to the theme park. If you don’t get this one straight away have a look at a map and feel really sorry for that coach load of kids!

Any way back to the subject of wedding photography by Worcestershire photographer Bravo Photography. Hampton Cort really is a wonderful place to get married. I have been going there for a number of years after my wife discovered it due to it’s organically managed gardens. These gardens are beautifully landscaped and maintained and full of beautiful features as well as beautiful flowers. The scope for wedding photography by Worcestershire photographer Bravo Photography, is therefore absolutely huge. The size and myriad opportunities offered to the photographer actually present problems in them selves. It would be far too easy to literally spend hours making beautiful wedding photographs in these gardens which would be great for the photographer but maybe not so much for the happy couple or their guests!

As always Worcestershire photographer Bravo Photography, displays great restraint by being very selective in the locations used and through great local knowledge of the gardens can find the best photography locations easily. Of course if you want to spend half a day there ……

Worcestershire Photographer, Bravo Photography of Kidderminster photographs wedding at Hampton Court, Leominster Herefordshire, and gets loads of great shots.

I have already written about how much as a Worcestershire Photographer I enjoy the gardens at Hampton Court but this wedding did provide some interesting challenges. The main one of these was that it was in late November. Now you probably don’t need to be an avid gardener to realise that this is not the best time of year for gardens. One big advantage though was that the gardens were not open to the public at this time so we did have a complete fee run. Not, I hasten to add that visitors to the garden are a real problem at other times of the year. Almost without exception they are polite and courteous to a Worcestershire Photographer and will readily move out of a shot if they think they are in the way. The one distraction that they can cause is in being eager to congratulate the happy couple but Hey, who doesn’t want to enjoy the lime light while you can.

This does remind this Worcestershire Photographer of a day at a wedding at the Swan at Bidbury, Oxfordshire which is a very quaint and popular village, particularly with coach loads of Japanese tourists. Yes, coach loads of Japanese tourists who all applauded the couple and considered it a great honour and very good luck to be photographed with them. Again, very quaint but did get in the way rather!

Any way, because of the time of year I had to use back drops such as in this picture with the strong colours of the brick work contrasting with the Autumnal colours of the leaves. Maybe not the very best time of yaer for a Worcestershire Photographer in these gardens but I am sure the results do speak for themselves.

Worcestershire wedding photographer at Dumbleton Hall

Worcestershire wedding photographer says Dumbleton Hall great place for photography.

Worcestershire wedding photographer, Bravo photography has just photographed another beautiful wedding at Dumbleton Hall, Worcestershire. This is actually one of my favorite locations in Worcestershire for wedding photography and one which I am fortunate enough to be able to return to again and again.

Located just on the border with Gloucestershire and on the edge of the Cotswolds the grounds and views are stunning. I particularly like the long and very elegant drive that leads from the church in the village in a long graceful church up to the hotel. Next time I photograph a wedding here I must remember that it is much further than it seems up the the drive and try to get a lift!

The church is absolutely delightful and although you can, of course, get married in the hotel itself, the the church provides a convenient and stunning counter part to the pictures a Worcestershire wedding photographer can take up at the hotel.

As a Worcestershire wedding photographer I have always found the staff at Dumbleton Hall to be be particularly efficient, attentive and unflappable, even on one occasion when the bride was over an hour late. Another mark of their efficiency and helpfulness to a Worcestershire wedding photographer was that the staff actually help in organising the parking when the sudden influx of cars from the church could easily end in grid lock.

The lovely honey coloured Cotswold stone is an absolute delight for the Worcestershire wedding photographer setting off a brides dress perfectly and providing a great many interesting back grounds. I particularly like the light in entrance porch as seen in this shot with Amanda who looks like she is very much enjoying the Worcester wedding photographer experience.

Worcestershire Wedding Photography

Worcestershire wedding photographer at Curradine Barns

Worcestershire wedding photographer at Curradine Barns.

Worcestershire wedding photographer, Bravo Photography of Kidderminster near Worcester just loves the Autumn for great wedding photography. Well when you can get results like this who wouldn’t? This picture was taken near Curradine Barns, Shrawley near Worcester, a venue I really like for creative Worcestershire wedding photographer. I say near because this location was not actually at the barns. One of the good things about this venue is that there is a lovely little circular walk you can do in just fifteen or twenty minutes that takes in a really well varied selections of backgrounds.

This is just the sort of thing that a good Worcestershire wedding photographer will know about for a wedding venue, and if they don’t, they should find out! This nice little tour can start out with some very rural pictures against a five bar gate – a surprisingly adaptable photography prop. It is even better when it will open easily as I have usually found brides to be a bit reluctant to clamber over one in their dress – there some notable exceptions though! We even had so sheep in the back ground on this day just to add a bit more county flavour. I have just thought of another brilliant idea for a picture on a five bar gate – bride and groom leaning on it and sucking a blade of grass in true yokel style. They could even be sucking the same piece of grass in a bit of a Lady and the Tramp moment. Now this Worcestershire wedding photographer only has to find a couple willing to do it!

Sorry I was meant to be talking about how I like taking wedding pictures in the Autumn. Apart from the brilliant colours , the mild weather and bonfire night just around the corner – I do love fire works!

Worcester photographer, Bravo Photography of Kidderminster near Worcester just seems to like writing about pictures so much that I seem to be running out of space on each blog entry! Well when you can get results like this who wouldn’t? This picture was taken near Curradine Barns, Shrawley near Worcester, a venue I really like for creative Worcester photographer. I say near because this location was not actually at the barns. One of the good things about this venue is that there is a lovely little circular walk you can do in just fifteen or twenty minutes that takes in a really well varied selections of backgrounds.

Going back to why I said near i the last description I badly ran over the word count on. That picture taken by Worcester photographer, Bravo Photography was taken at the little church just a short stroll down the road from the Curradine Barns. A short stroll easily accomplished in high heals and a big white dress – something really rather important to most brides but strangely not by all Worcester photographer s  from some of the horror stories I hear from time to time. Any way, this was just in the church yard beneath a rather lovely tree skillfully planted about a hundred years ago to just catch the late after noon light on a lovely Autumn day. How very thoughtful that was of someone. Well, accidental I am sure but just he sort of thing that a good Worcester photographer will pick up on and use to the full!

Sorry I was meant to be talking about how I like to do wedding pictures in the Autumn. Apart from the brilliant colours , the mild weather and bonfire night just around the corner – I do love fire works!

Wedding Photography, Rowton Castle, Shropshire

Wedding Photography from  Rowton Castle, Shropshire. Faye and Andy live in Bewdley, near Kidderminster, Worcestershire but thought it worthwhile to travel over to Shropshire for their wedding – I have to agree with their decision! Rowton Castle, Shropshire is a wedding photographers dream – lots of great backgrounds, all easily reached and the staff are wonderfully organised and efficient.

There are quite a few ancient looking houses around that are ideal for Wedding Photography but many of them are not quite as old as they seem. For all it’s grandeur some where like Eastnor Castle, Worcestershire is just a Victorian invention. Rowton Castle, Shropshire is the six hundred year old real thing!

You can, of course get married in a church and then hold your wedding reception and have your Wedding Photography at Rowton Castle, Shropshire but it is ideal if every thing is happening there. I can get great Wedding Photography of the bridal party up in their rooms then nip, along the corridor, down the stairs, along another corridor, up some stairs and along another corridor and I can get some Wedding Photography shots of the men getting ready. It is not actually that far but I have to angle for sympathy where I can. In fact you don’t really want the two wedding parties being too close together just in case the bride and groom should bump into each other and you know how bad that is!

Any way the long and the short of it is that Rowton Castle in Shropshire is a really great place for Wedding Photography. If you want to see the proof then I have a brilliant album from this wedding. Just give me a ring and I can arrange to bring it and lots of others over for you to see.

Wedding photography Worcestershire

Wedding photography Worcestershire in Pershore and The Pear Tree, Worcester.

A day of mixed weather for Wedding photography Worcestershire but it did mean that when it wasn’t raining the light was great for wedding photography. I had spotted this patch of bluebells on my way from Kidderminster, Worcestershire on my way to do the photography – you have to have sharp eyes to be a wedding photographer.

After checking that the driver was OK to stop on the way to the Pear Tree in Smite, near Worcester, Worcestershire, I joined the happy couple for a short stop and some great photographs. Sometimes you do have to ‘think out side the box’ a bit to get great Wedding photography Worcestershire, and this is just one example. I have used all sorts of unusual locations over the years such as canal boats, barn doors, porches of houses and even churches. What is unusual about that you may ask – well the couple didn’t just get married there!

For my Wedding photography Worcestershire, I really do try to capture the atmosphere of the time of year that your wedding takes place. I am assuming that as you have chosen the date it must have some significance. The Blue bells for this Spring wedding are a case in point. If it had been a little earlier I would have made sure I captured Spring blossom. A bit latter in the year we have poppies to fix the season in the Wedding photography Worcestershire. For Summer we have grey skies and rain – well this year we did but what a glorious Autumn with lovely leaves a plenty. Of course if it is a Christmas wedding that you have chosen then we still have trees to play with.  The trees this time have tinsel and Christmas decorations to set off your Wedding photography Worcestershire.

Worcestershire Wedding Photography

Worcestershire Wedding Photography by Bravo Photography of Kidderminster.

Bravo Photography of Kidderminster consistently provide some of the best Worcestershire Wedding Photography and at very reasonable prices. My wife would just love me to charge the prices that we often see other Worcestershire Wedding Photography providers charging but my philosophy is that I like to keep things reasonable. Consequently, I do keep pretty busy, but that is how I like it!

People often ask how far in advance you need to book to get Bravo Photography of Kidderminster to do Worcestershire Wedding Photography for them but I am afraid there is no straight answer to this question. Unfortunately I can only do one wedding a day (I have done two before and it was not good for my blood pressure at all!). This means that bookings have to be taken on a first come, first served basis. Most people plan their weddings twelve or eighteen months ahead though as a guide. Having said that though this Worcestershire Wedding Photography has booked weddings as much as three years in advance and as little a one day.

At the current round of wedding fairs that I am attending at the moment, with the next at Worcester Rugby Club tomorrow most people are looking at next year. Having said that though, I have noticed that the demand for Worcestershire Wedding Photography has shortened on time scale a lot. More and more people are approaching me requests for Worcestershire Wedding Photography for their weddings later this year and even this Spring.

There is nothing that says that all weddings have to planed years ahead of course I we are proof of that in that although we were thinking about it for a couple of years it only took us two months to actually organise in the end including our Worcestershire Wedding Photography

Wedding photographer Worcester at Shropshire Castle

Wedding photographer Worcester at Rowton Castle Shropshire for Lyndsay and Tonys wedding photography.

Wedding photographer Worcester, Bravo Photography was at Rowton Castle in Shropshire again for the fantastic wedding of Lyndsay and Tony. As always with this superb venue the hotel staff were superbly organised and efficient and every thing ran like clock work. Like clock work except for the weather that is which, although rather inconvenient for a Wedding photographer Worcester did provide some great skies and even a rain bow later on.

This was actually a good test of this Wedding photographer Worcester, Bravo Photography’s forward planning and ability to react to any situation. I had already spotted that the weather was not looking too good in the morning. Pretty easy really and no weather forecast needed – if your head is getting wet then it is raining! Because of this I set up my studio lights during the morning while everyone was getting ready. This meant that they were all ready to go if the weather should not oblige and I had to do the family group shots in doors.

As it turned out for Wedding photographer Worcester, Bravo Photography, the weather was just about OK directly after the ceremony so every one was able to rush out side for a big group shot which we managed just before the heavens opened again. Well at least that was the big one sorted out. I was then able to do the smaller family groups in the very grand room in side over looking the gardens. Because I had tested the set up earlier I was able to get straight into it with perfectly balanced shots. This is where having the studio lights and knowledge of how to use them properly really came into play and a brilliant set of pictures was the result.

Wedding photographer Worcestershire Bravo Photography at Rowton Castle Shropshire for  wedding photography.

Wedding photographer Worcestershire, Bravo Photography was in Shropshire again at the splendid  Rowton Castle for the fantastic wedding of Lyndsay and Tony. True to form the castle provided brilliant opportunities for creative wedding photography. This picture of the bride seeing some of her guests arrive is a great example. Just look at the expression, the lovely old window and the reflection, just perfect.

The poor weather on this day was actually a good test of this Wedding photographer Worcestershire, Bravo Photography’s forward planning and ability to react to any situation. I had already realised the weather was not looking too good in the morning. Pretty easy to tell actually and no weather forecast needed – if your head is getting wet then it is raining! Because of this I set up my studio lights during the morning while everyone was getting ready. This meant that they were all ready to go if the weather should not oblige and I had to do the family group shots in doors.

By chance it turned out for Wedding photographer Worcestershire, Bravo Photography, that he weather was just about OK directly after the ceremony so every one was able to rush out side for a big group shot which we managed just before the heavens opened again. Well at least that was the big one sorted out. I was then able to do the smaller family groups in the very grand room in side over looking the gardens. Because I had tested the set up earlier I was able to get straight into it with perfectly balanced shots. This is where having the studio lights and knowledge of how to use them properly really came into play and a brilliant set of pictures was the result.

Kidderminster photographer goes to Birmingham for wedding

Kidderminster photographer goes to Birmingham for wedding on lovely cold day.

Kidderminster photographer, Bravo Photography had a great but rather cold time at Rebbecca & Andrews wedding.A freezing cold February day but a bit of forward planning and a visit to the location (something I always do if I am unfamiliar with the location), meant that we were able to get a nice selection of stunning photographs very quickly.

Forward planning actually goes an awful lot deeper than just working out locations for photography. Your Kidderminster photographer, Bravo Photography considers such things as parking and where exactly is the best place to position the car for a quick get away after a wedding. Not that I mean running off of course, but to get to the reception in plenty of time to photograph the couple arriving.

On this particular day though Kidderminster photographer, Bravo Photography was more thinking of nice safe places the car could be left for long enough but was conveniently located in case I needed any extra equipment and preferably as cheap as possible!

In the case of a church you need to think about how you can be first away and definitely not get blocked in. If everything is happening at one hotel though much of this can be ignored.

Being very much a Winter wedding Kidderminster photographer, Bravo Photography, was looking for some colour to add some life and vibrancy to the pictures. I found plenty of this in the canal boats as you can see in the picture. A little bit of Photo Shop magic has been used to further high light the colours by some subtle use of the posterize filter which I think adds that important little bit extra to the shot.

It was nice to get away from Kidderminster and Worcester as was the proper wedding breakfast – Full English – thank you!
