An Italian Wedding in Weybridge I Oatlands Park Hotel Wedding Photography

Recently I had the pleasure of second-shooting for Charlie Campey Photography at Antonella and Augusto's Wedding at Oatlands Park Hotel in Weybridge, Surrey. My first Italian wedding and wow - Italians sure can party! Conga line - check. Bride being carried - check. Groom being carried (!) - check! It was fun-filled from start to finish - are all Italian weddings like this?! I hope so! This wedding is a great example of when evening wedding photography coverage is a must - these are some of my favourite dancing shots! Oh, and fact of the day, the great cedar tree at the front of Oatlands Park hotel was planted by Charles I to celebrate the birth of his son (I love me some history)!

Q. Client Question: What is a second-shooter and why do photographer's have them?

A. When my friend's ask me what I did at the weekend, and I reply saying "I second-shot a wedding", the response I usually get is "You did what?" 

For those that wonder what second-shooting is - essentially this is when the primary shooter (the photographer you hired to photograph your wedding) brings another photographer with them - their "second". The extra photographer on the same job works in unison with the lead photographer, adding another dimension to the visual record of the day. For example, the lead shooter will most likely stand at the front during the ceremony to capture the bride and groom, while the second-shooter will most likely be at the back of the room/church capturing the entire scene. As you can see above, those little children watching the ceremony in the aisle were adorable - my position at the back of the room meant I was there to see it happening and ultimately capture a part of the story of the day that the bride and groom may never have known about otherwise.

Essentially, you can’t be in two places at once - weddings often have strict timelines and the moment the bride’s Dad walks in to the room to see his beautiful daughter in her dress for the first time, may well be the same time that the groom is having his boutonniere put on by his Mum - both key moments that ideally you want captured. A second shooter provides backup, logistical support if necessary and another view of the wedding day captured on camera. 

Thank you so much to Charlie for inviting me to second-shoot this amazing Oatlands Park Hotel wedding!

Love, Susie x

Linda & Allan I Carlton Mitre Hotel Hampton Court Wedding Photography

It's an absolute pleasure to introduce the wedding photographs for Linda & Allan! A huge congratulations to an absolutely lovely couple - they had an intimate ceremony at Kingston Registry Office followed by a beautiful reception and wedding breakfast at the Carlton Mitre Hotel in Hampton Court - situated directly opposite Hampton Court Palace on the river’s borders near Kingston upon Thames, providing a glorious backdrop to their wedding photography. Allan and Linda were beaming all day - in Linda's enquiry to me she described herself and Allan as a couple in their 'lively 60s' - I think the last image captures this best! Here's wishing them every happiness together!
