Linden Hall Wedding: A First Dance in Available Light
Kerry and Lewis enjoyed the loveliest of first dances at Linden Hall in Northumberland , just a few miles north of Morpeth . There was not a lot of light to work with. Classic dilemma for the wedding photographer: use an extra source of light or push the camera to its limits ? Here I felt it would be best to work with the Dj’s lights only. When it came to editing, I most often opted for black and white, simply because the colour of the lights tended to distract from Kerry’s and Lewis’ features and expressions.
Of course, there are times when its just too dark , then it’s all about using extra sources without killing the atmosphere.
I remember with great fondness this first dance, the whole wedding day for that matter: Kerry and Lewis were constantly making sure family and friends were having a good time, to the point that Kerry had to be reminded that she wasn’t a Linden Hall staff member !
