Alternative Wedding Idea In Somerset
During U.K lockdown, and I’m sure you know what I’m on about already, I’m finding ways to keep busy. I have been digging through my archives, looking at what I could possibly re edit and post. Im four years into my photography journey, and I’m always self critical of my work. But today, I came across this set of images with Andrew and Faye. My whole day lit up with colour with this alternative idea!
Andrew and Faye wanted to do something fun, and unique. I had recently seen a similar photoshoot online, so I threw them the idea. Straight away they said yes! We decided on Longrun Meadow in Taunton for our location. This was local for us all, and we knew the sun was going to be shining! We started off talking about their wedding day and getting some nice candid photos. Then we chose a location in the meadow start the fun! This paint was easily sourced on eBay, and is environmentally also! No hint!
Lets throw some paint……
Faye took the first shot, and it was cheap, Andrew did not see it coming! Im now trying to take photos and control my laughter at the same time! Andrew retaliated with a striking blow of purple puff! The fight was on! The skill for me was trying to keep camera focus, maintain exposure in the intense sunlight and not get covered myself! Moving in close produced some of the best images. Looking back at this set three years down the line, I’m really chuffed with how I did. This is why I could not resist a re edit and re post. Im kicking myself for even taking these images down!
This was my first ever couple shoot, and looking back at it now its re inspired to me want to shoot more alternative wedding ideas in Somerset and afar like this again!
