We’ve been to Christ Church in East Sheen twice before and Ham Polo club many times but one of the joys of our job is that no two weddings are ever the same. Saturday’s wedding was just brilliant. The couple were great and really easy to work with, the weather was incredible and we got to play with a couple of new cameras. We don’t normally get too bothered by equipment because, after all, a camera is just a tool and it’s not how many mega-dubries but how you use it that’s important. However, we were excited to be using a new Canon EOS 5D MkII and a new Canon EOS 7D. As you’ll see, these cameras make it much easier to work in low light conditions.
Anyway, here are our favourites:
The little bridesmaids at the wedding tried very hard to steal the show.
Photography during the service is normally banned at Christ Church but we were very grateful to the minister for allowing us to take one or two shots from the back. This is where the 7D’s quiet shutter release came into its own.
While the couple signed the register, a couple of the bridesmaids had a fit of the giggles.
Emily’s parents were married at the same church.
Emily’s granny was a bit too frail to make it to the wedding so it was nice to be with the couple when they visited her after the ceremony. Granny has a sharp wit and made us all laugh.
The gardens at Granny’s are beautiful so we made good use of them.
Every time we’ve been to Ham Polo Club the sky has been incredible. Sarah took the couple out for some shots at just the right time shortly after sundown.
The band set up some LED lights which fascinated the children.
The new cameras have a higher ISO setting allowing these shots with very low amounts of light.
