There are so many great backdrops at Forty Hall, many doorways, trees, steps. And that’s just outside!310312 LG&YM 004 310312 LG&YM 010 310312 LG&YM 019 310312 LG&YM 050 310312 LG&YM 057 310312 LG&YM 060I love to photograph wedding rings against something stone, to give a real contrast between the textures!

310312 LG&YM 119My full array of lenses are always on hand during the ceremony, I usually switch to a longer lens as the wedding rings are about to go on fingers, to get a closer shot like this that also shows the dress detail and wedding jewellery well

310312 LG&YM 147 310312 LG&YM 152These trees were in perfect blossom at the date of the wedding (31st March, if you are wondering!) and make a fantastic background for wedding photographs!
