Jessica & Will's Wedding (My First Ever Wedding) Musket Wedding Photography by Anthony Aitman

I was very lucky to bag this as my first wedding to photograph. The couple where so lovely and relaxed with letting me and my photography partner go with the flow and photograph in our creative style.

We where so nervous about doing this wedding, that we did some rehearsals in a playing field near my house. We wanted to make sure we could get in the places we needed to be in order to get the shots we wanted. I have always been about being prepared and ready for any project I am involved in. So planning has always been a big part of my work ethics.

After getting stuck into the shoot of the wedding, I started to relax and forget about worrying as you don’t have time for that. You just have time to shoot and get the shots needed. I enjoyed it a lot more that I thought I would. I loved the pressure and how everything in your life was forgotten and all that matters was the moment you where in there and then and getting the shots. It’s all about being in the moment in all of the things you do in life. It’s how you truly enjoy life and get things done.

We met the couple thought her brother as we had filmed him a few times in his band called, Taken Root.

Song: Walk

Artist: Taken Root

So it was great to have a connection there to make the first time shooting a wedding a lot less scary. It felt more like shooting for a family member so it was a complete joy to do.

Here are the photos from the day.

It was such a great honour to shoot this wedding and for the couple to be so brilliant so my first wedding was a lovely introduction into wedding photography. I also got another wedding from doing this one which was fab.

Roxanne & Will's Wedding at Kelham Hall & Country Park Newark by Anthony Aitman

This was my first ever summer wedding and what a summer it was. It was incredibly hot. I was down to my waistcoat to try and stay cool. It was perfect weather all day for the wedding. This made it very good for photography. The only problem was the ceremony was in the middle of the day when the sun was at it’s highest so there was very bright light and harsh hard shadows to try and deal with. Lucky there was plenty of places to reduce the harsh light to get some nice couple shots.

The wedding was at Kelham Hall in Newark which is a beautiful place to get married. It has some lovely gardens to take photos as you can see here.
