Amanda & Becki’s civil partnership, Newmillerdam, Wakefield – 2012

On Saturday the 23rd June we had the pleasure of documenting Amanda and Becki Norbury’s civil partnership at Newmillerdam. They are a fantastic couple, very easy going and great to photograph.

We started the day with morning preperation, both houses were relaxed and enjoying the build up towards the ceremony. It was a cups of tea and champagne whilst getting dress morning. Little bit of nerves showing when the wedding car was late but everything ran smoothly and everyone had a brilliant time.

Wakefield, morning preperation.

wedding shoes.
I enjoy shooting the shoes as it’s our chance to get creative. Paul shoots the rings so shoes is my thing. I love the shape of this table and think it works well with the shoes.

First chance to test the new 35mm 1.4 and I love it, the sun was shining after a lot of rain so we made the most of it.

For the first dance we always use a mix of flash and natural light, with two of us we decided to use a lightstand for the flash so one of us can shoot natural light only. Really like the outcome too.

We finished the night with some photobooth fun, always goes down a treat.

If really was a brilliant day, Amanda and Becki are a pleasure to shoot and had none stop smiles all day.

When possible we try to create a slideshow for evening guests to see the days events, plus it’s always nice to see reactions. Check it out below, best viewed in HD 🙂
