Virginia Water Photographer

Virginia Water Photographer – Natalie & Charlie’s stunning Wentworth wedding

Part three – Virginia Water Photographer.  If you missed part one click here and part two here.

The day continued with the speeches.  Great for capturing moments and also shooting relaxed portraits.  After speeches it was time for dinner served by the amazing Jacaranda.  Their food is always top notch and today was no exception.

The evening continued with drinks and chatting and then it was time for the dancing!  Dancing is quite difficult to shoot.  You have a few different things to struggle with.  The light of it; I like to get a nice balance between ambient light and flash to freeze movement.  I tend to shoot with a high ISO and balance that with bounced flash.  But because of the shape of the marquee (it was curved) the bounce was not even in all places.  So I stuck to one side of the dance floor and kept adjusted the direction of the flash to get the right mix.  The other thing is the dance floor is often busy and you have to be quite fearless to get amongst the action covering half your face with a big heavy object!  It’s worth it though – party photos are the perfect way to end the story of the wedding day.

Here are some of my favourites from part three of this wedding – Virginia Water Photographer.

The speeches have always been one of my favourite parts of a wedding. The different emotions are great to capture.

The dancing was great to shoot – although I did nearly end of with a black eye several times! One of the hazards of holding a large heavy camera to your face while guests swing their arms around.
