Winter Wedding Photography in a Marquee

You never really know what the weather will be like when you're planning for a December wedding, and earlier in the year when Jess and Sam asked me to provide their Christmas marquee wedding photography I was half hoping for a crisp winters day with frost or snow. Of course it was unseasonably warm and quite bright as I drove into the Lincolnshire village of Ropsley to check out the church. Still, much better than an overcast day, and the light definitely gave me something to use, photographically speaking, during Jessica's preparations at her parents home.

Bridal Preparations at Home

The garden had be totally transformed into an impressive marquee, flowing right around the house, and looked set to host an amazing party later that evening. Inside, it was bustling with activity, an excellent scene for my style of documentary wedding photography. Hair, make-up and last minute dress adjustments were all happening amongst the activity in the garden as well as China, the families Hungarian Viszla eyeing up the mouthwatering ham on the dining table!

I soon headed into the village to capture Sam and the guests arriving at the church. Jess arrived bathed in the setting sunlight, greeted by another of the families dogs, before the start of the dusk ceremony. Light in the church was tricky, but atmospheric, like all winter weddings. The latest generation of cameras, like the Canon 5D Mark IV's that I was using can cope incredibly well in such low light, so the twilight 'sparkler run' outside made for some great pictures.

Marquee weddings vary hugely, in size, shape and particularly, light quality. Thankfully this one was superbly lit, with lots of Christmas lights helping. The wedding breakfast featured a superb guest rendition of 'The 12 Days of Christmas' putting everyone in the seasonal spirits for a great party in to the night.

True documentary photos and a beautiful story - awesome work! :) I love the image of the bride saying hello to her dog but holding it at arms length so it doesn't get it's paws on her dress!
