Allison & Andy's Wedding Day at Ribby Hall Village
Allison & Andy's Spring Wedding at Ribby Hall Village
Lytham Wedding Photographer John Francis
This wedding has been booked with me for quite a while and so we had plenty of time to get ready. Early in 2014 I met with the couple at my studios in Wrea Green to go through the detail and to have a photo-shoot in the studio. They had some great props and we managed to get some lovely images of them which we could use on the day around the wedding venue. One of these images would become their signature board on the day. The day before the wedding Allison dropped in again at the studios and brought her wedding dress, shoes and rings for me to photograph. For this I use photoflex continuous lighting which is imported from the US. It provides lovely soft light perfect for such an occasion. An hour later everything was captured and Allison could enjoy her last night being single!
The next morning was a little cloudy but would improve slowly throughout the day. I got some images around the wedding venue and made my way to get some pictures of the bride & groom prep (not together obviously). Allison was in the amazing Spa Hotel here at Ribby Hall and Andy in a nearby cottage. I love the contrast between the brides prep and the grooms. Some lovely images obtained and then Jason arrived from Flower Design with the bouquets - amazing. I got some pictures as he delivered each one. Back to the venue for some more images of the cake, room and guest arrival before the ceremony. Group shots outside using my studio lighting strobes and then some using Nikon speed lights. Post wedding breakfast i used some Arri fresnel lights on a shoot with the couple, which look really great - Hollywood style. For the first dance I used a mixture of high ISO / fast lens and strobe lighting. Some images from the day were edited in my studios and then displayed within the wedding venue for the day and evening guests to see. Pleasure to be a part of their very special day. Here are some images from their day.
