Hallmark Hotel Wedding Emma & Will. Early July saw me at the Hallmark hotel to photograph the wedding of Emma and Will. The weather was excellent and Emma looked fabulous in her dress supplied by Bride & Co in Hull.
As Emma was staying at the hotel I managed to get some images of the latter stages of her getting ready, one of my favourite things to photograph, I enjoy the bustle and the nervous tension.
After the wedding ceremony the usual group shots were taken and then some of the bride and groom both in the field and on the swing. Once the formal shots were finished the guests moved back into the bar area giving me the chance to take some candid shots of the guests, always a favourite with the bride and groom when looking at their finished pictures.
Like most photographers I have preferred venues for photographing a wedding (and some that aren’t preferred) the Hallmark Hotel in North Ferriby is certainly one of my preferred locations.
If the weather is pleasant there is a huge field at the rear overlooking the Humber and on into North Lincolnshire and if the weather isn’t playing ball there is enough space inside to take reasonable sized groups. Another plus is, if the wedding ceremony is held there is more than sufficient natural light unlike some venues who use rooms totally devoid of windows! Why oh why do venues think this is good?
I hope you enjoy the short video (less than 3 minutes) which I think tells the story of the day.
As ever images taken on the Fuji XT1 mostly with the 16-55 f2.8 lens.
