Jo & Darren
Stanbrook Abbey in Worcester, this former monastery set within extensive grounds, has its own chapel and is one of my favourite wedding venues in the country. This eclectic and beautiful building with great decor and several hideaway places allowed me to shoot some intimate portraits of the couple.
The couple were relaxed on the day, which enabled me to capture some fun and informal shots alongside the more traditional posed photographs for their collection. The shot outside of the barn was inspired by the British-based American painter, Whistler. The picture came about just before sunset. The barn had a quirky background contrasting the fine material of the newly weds' dress and suit. You can see more of my candid and theatrical pictures of this stunning wedding on my Shop page.
