John & Heather Wedding at Darlington Registry Office
John & Heather had their wedding back in February but I just haven’t gotten round to blog about their wedding until now. John & Heather chose Darlington Registry Office for their ceremony and Woodham Golf Club for their reception venue. Darlington Registry Office was now in the council offices and the wedding was in the council chamber. It was a really nice grand room but didn’t have any windows, only incandescent lighting so lighting was always going to be challenging in terms of colour of the photos. The white balance had to be set in post production to cool the images down.
I had a promoted viewpoint of the room and aisle as there was a small step at the front of the room where the front bench was. It helped to get the perfect viewpoint.
The wedding went without a hitch, its always great to witness the coming together of two families and the bride and groom say their vows and commit to one another.
We went onto Woodham Golf Club for the reception. I took the time to take some detail photos of the wedding table decorations and then we went outside onto a small patio overlooking the golf course for family group photos.
I then got John and Heather to do a staged cutting of the cake as they would be cutting the cake properly after I had finished coverage.
I stayed for about 10 more minutes to capture the speeches before I finished my contracted coverage and left John and Heather to enjoy their wedding breakfast and the rest of their wedding day.
