Leamington Spa Wedding Photography โ€“ Becci + Mike Erbilur-Gray | Wethele Manor, Weston Under Wetherley

Cool couple, nice mix.. british.. turkish… and the smell of those cupcakes… yes, I’ve forgotten the rain already!

The wedding took place at Wethele Manor, a 16th century farmhouse out near Leamington Spa.. definitely a place worth checking out for a venue if you’re local. The staff worked hard along with the bridal party and not even a spot of english summer downpour could beat the day… it was beautiful, a good laugh too! And those cupcakes… (well no I didn’t try one, I’m not that pushy! Plus the photos of me shooting at weddings that are appearing on facebook aren’t doing me justice!)

Definitely want to wish Becci and Mike all the best, I’m sure while they’re out there in sunny Sri Lanka right now they’ll be thinking of us all trying to work out what weather we’ll get next! One of you lovely couples need to take me abroad to shoot your wedding ๐Ÿ˜‰

As always, here are a few favourites and, as the youth would say, a few randoms from the wedding day:

Staffordshire Wedding Photography โ€“ Lisa and Jason | Christ Church, Stone + White Eagle Polish Club

Earlier this month I had the privilege of shooting Lisa and Jason’s wedding over in Stone and Stafford. What a great day, chilled out couple, fun family and great guests. Oh and the food? Let’s just say I’ve never had appetizers like those at a wedding before! I didn’t mention Jason’s a bit keen in the kitchen, did I?! Perfect man ladies? Well, he’s taken!

The prep photos started with the girls getting their hair done at Salon 74 in Newcastle Under Lyme then into the house for everything else! The wedding ceremony was at Christ Church in Stone and the reception was at the White Eagle Polish Club.

You might remember the engagement photos from earlier this year, well here are a few favourites from the wedding day, hope you enjoy:

Apresh - Stunning work Damien!

Samantha Jones - Is that a wedding ring in the champagne? Never seen that before but great idea. Like the B&W presentation here – with the emotion of a wedding, sometimes the B&W makes you focus so much more on the details.

July 21, 2009 - 14:05

Damian Brown Photography - It sure is Samantha, didn't feel it was all that original but wanted to do it all the same and the couple were super chilled ๐Ÿ™‚

Sonia - Thanks for sharing..I really like weddings ..I just love them..see ya !

Birmingham Artists Session #1

In preparation and as a side project for an exhibition I’m shooting for The Drum (September til November) I shot a few artists from my city, Birmingham… A few I have known, respected, and once upon a time jammed with, and a few newer to me who I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on.

Birmingham as ever is full of amazing talent that needs to be seen, experienced and nurtured. This city is home to many good things, many huge influences musically and artistically and long may that last.

For the strobists out there just two speedlights were used, some shots just one, and a softbox. The backgrounds were just painted walls, and one projector screen in one set.

A good session indeed and I’m hoping to run a few more soon to give local talent the “exposure” they deserve. Here are the previews:

Delhi was….

Bonkers!!!!
I had a great time, a great experience in Delhi last week! Really.. you have experienced nothing until you have been to Delhi…

The noise, the traffic, the food, the people, the colours, the heat, the history… wow. I’d love to go back and tour india a lot more (contact Prashant at India Invites for help, great service), see where my grandparents came from and learn more of the real india. Yesterday my nan’s sister died in South Africa so it’s only right that this week I blog this…

I don’t want to misrepresent India, so when you think of the poverty.. think of the extremes.. India is huge and so anything it has will be huge in relation… yes there is poverty, yes there are people sleeping in the streets, little kids begging but there are also many hard working people and also many who are extremely rich.

India is a country of extremes, disparity, warmth on many levels, and a country steeped in history and contrast.

Here are a few snaps from my short time in the capital, snapped with my g10:

Bridgnorth Wedding Photography โ€“ Amanda and Steve | Swindon Golf Club in Dudley

Yes believe the rumours people, every now and then we get a bit of rain here in the UK… Typically at the height of a busy wedding season… So to just make it interesting it decided to absolutely bucket down this June on Amanda and Steve’s big day!

Most people would see that as a problem… but not those two!! (It might be safe now to mention that I had to get into my car through the boot in the morning as the central locking went wonky… I’d have gone in the studio van if that didn’t work! No way I’m missing a wedding shoot!)

The wedding took place in the beautiful surroundings of Bridgnorth… with the reception at Swindon Golf Club in Dudley. Definitely give Bridgnorth a visit if you’re checking out real English hotspots… great for a day out… just try to go on a sunny day!

As always…. just a few of my favourites from the day:
