In the same week as being featured in a national wedding magazine (see previous post), I have the honour of having a stunning couple of mine featured both on the cover and inside the latest issue of Your Herts/Beds Wedding magazine. Steph and Paul’s glorious autumn wedding at The Comper Chapel is showcased and it looks absolutely stunning - the cover was MADE for them, don’t you think? Chuffed!
It’s fantastic when you have weddings featured in magazines, whether regional or national, and it’s even better when the magazine approaches you before the wedding has even been shot, asking if they can feature it!
I was at the RocknRollBride party in August last year, when Julia Ford (the Art Editor for Wedding and Wedding Flowers magazines) approached me and mentioned that she followed Jen’s bi-weekly column on the RockMyWedding blog, where she wrote about the lead-up to her wedding day and what she and Matt had planned for it. Julia asked if her magazine could have the wedding to feature in a future issue and I was delighted to agree - faaaast forward a few months - the wedding has been and gone, Jen’s about to give birth to her and Matt’s first child and along comes the issue of Wedding Flowers with Jen and Matt’s wedding inside! CHUFFED!
In the most recent issue of the prestigious UK wedding magazine Brides, South Farm in Cambridgeshire was listed as the number 6 top wedding venue out of 100 in the UK. I was contacted by Philip, the owner of South Farm, asking if they could use some my images taken at a wedding there last October for their adverts and to place on the Brides website. I was delighted to let them use a selection of my images (some of which have also been seen in Cosmopolitan Bride magazine) and here is one of the images as it appears on the Brides website, counting down that top 10 wedding venues in the UK.
I’m delighted to report that for the second time in as many issues, Your Herts/Beds Wedding magazine has used one of my weddings as a Featured Wedding in their new issue, due to hit the shops on January 22nd. Robyn and Jamie’s wedding at Royston and the fabulous Fanhams Hall Hotel last year was one of the most memorable for two reasons: they were a very photogenic couple and it was a military-dress wedding, which made it very special for me as a photographer, what with the uniforms and medals - there were loads of details not normally seen at weddings. Even though the weather wasn’t brilliant, it kept clear for just long enough for the photographs - which turned out beautifully.
Not only is Robyn and Jamie’s day a featured wedding in this issue, but I was also asked for my contribution as a photographer for an article covering the capturing of the big day - I was asked to cover why the groom waiting at the altar is such an important shot for the wedding album.
I have posted here a low-res version of the article, which is a sneak preview, as the magazine isn’t on sale yet!
