The quirky wedding of Max and Jonny. Tamworth wedding photography
Great day! I was ‘shipped’ to Birmingham for the wedding of Max and Jonny. I was delighted they weren’t doing things ‘normally’ – a different wedding with their own stamp on it is music to my ears! Max looked amazing in her gorgeous deep red and white outfit; designed by her for the day, and those boots – wow! It’s so great to meet and get to know people that just want to do things their own way. The venue was a humble bar and hotel in Tamworth with bags of character and overlooking an awesome castle with pretty grounds. Of course I ‘made’ the guests trundle down the road to the castle grounds for the group shots and everyone happily obliged.. even the kids were well behaved. After the more traditional wedding group photos Max, Jonny, Archie and I wandered the castle grounds (and even the streets of Tamworth) to find some key places and wonderful textures for some wedding portraits. We found so many interesting places and spent some time together creating these images. Afterwards we headed back to the hotel to start the evening celebrations.
This is what Max said after receiving the photos: “We had the pleasure of CJ and Archie as our photography team at our wedding in the midlands. The venue was near a castle and while many photographers take brides and grooms out to the beautiful grounds CJ had an eye for a slightly different composition to most. She has been professional and helpful throughout our interactions as we bought a package that included an engagement shoot as well. We were very impressed by her clear vision of a good picture, and she was not afraid to ask for what she wanted to get the best directed shots – nothing excessive you understand – just slight repositioning, shifting herself to get the best light, and asking her assistant to bring in the best equipment. She was great with all the guests, even down to wrangling the nearly-three-year old bridesmaid who had strong ideas about where else she wanted to be! Both the posed and the candid shots were were sent were fantastic and we’re glad to have a great pictorial record of a fantastic day. Even as somebody who doesn’t usually like having a picture taken, it was a pleasure to deal with Swinky Photography. Highly recommended!”
