A few preview shots from yesterday’s wedding at St Stephen’s Church in Dulwich, London. A professionally organised confetti line from the ushers and best man gave us this great shot of confetti being thrown after the church ceremony.
We then headed over to Nonsuch Mansion in Cheam, Surrey for the wedding reception and some more wedding photography in the surrounding grounds and Nonsuch park. A smattering of rain meant that getting wedding photographs was a bit tricky, but this light rain in the shot below adds an extra dimension to the background.
We weren’t quite luck enough to get some golden hour light, but we had a small wander around Nonsuch park towards the end of the day for some informal bridal portraits. You can just see a little bit of golden light on Jade’s hair above.
I’ve bought a new 85mm 1.2 lens and am really pleased with it’s sharpness and soft bokeh in the shallow depth of field. It’s also a really fast lens, so the shots above were able to use a lower ISO setting compared to the shot below which is shot on my trusty 70-200mm.
I love this cow parsley in the background, giving the woodland that extra dimension of tone and colour.
Finally, I used this fairy light wall to experiment further with that shallow depth fo field from the 85mm.
