Despite Saturday’s changeable weather, Peter & Dawn had their winter wedding without umbrellas at the Winters Barns in Canterbury Kent. A late afternoon kick-off meant low light and plenty of scope to use off-camera flash and a monopod for the natural light shots. If you’d like to get in touch about planning your winter wedding, I’d love to hear from you. Although based as a photographer in Kent I cover weddings and portrait and commercial work across the UK.

I was asked to write a piece recently for a wedding magazine for brides worried about getting married in winter when there isn’t brilliant sunshine. Without wishing to make wedding photographers sound miserable, direct bright sunlight is not good for photographs which is why we tend to put people straight into the shade. If we don’t then you get screwed up eyes and perspiring faces (and that’s just the photographer…).
Winter light is softer and less intense, although when it’s low in the sky at the start and end of the day it can be strong. More often than not it is cloudy and it just means seeking out pockets of light or photographing indoors if it is too cold. In fact I have a wedding tomorrow in Kent where it’s a late kick off and I know it will be too cold to shoot the couple outdoors. Winter weddings can be just as rewarding as those photographed in the summer. Although based as a photographer in Kent I cover weddings, portrait and commercial photography across the UK.
