As a recommended Spitbank Fort wedding photographer, one of the amazing venues range, I was delighted to be awarded the opportunity to photograph the wedding of Clare and Marcus.
We first met following a strong recommendation from this unique wedding venue where I am one of their few preferred suppliers. This preference is only given to those who can devote the technique, time and energy needed to achieve the photographic potential of the venue, given the unusual setting and logistics involved.
I love the challenge and sense of achievement at this venue, where there is so much history and opportunity for truly stunning wedding photographs. It also helps to have such a loving couple in Clare and Marcus. The black tie event created very elegant images against a gorgeous, chic colour scheme, enhanced by the shimmering light on the sea.
There were some lovely moments captured during the Bridal preparations between Clare and her Bridesmaids and during the ceremony especially as Clare walked up the aisle. It was a very windy day on the fort which made for some challenging and exciting photography with the bright sunshine throughout lighting up the Bride in her Miss Bush Bridal wedding dress. Stunning views from the fort across Portsmouth Harbour and the Isle of Wight framed the ‘around the island boat race’ which was competing during the day.
A memorable group photograph of all the guests in the courtyard of the venue, and some wonderful fleeting moments during the ceremony between the couple, were achievable due to my unique knowledge of the Fort. Speeches were impeccably delivered by all and brought raucous laughter throughout from the guests. A wonderful final photograph was taken in the lower deck of the fort, which is full of emotion between the couple. 🙂
Actions as they say speak louder than words and at this venue there was certainly plenty to remember as part of Clare and Marcus’s story…..
