The Guild of Photographers Image of the Day

Lower Slaughter Wedding Photographer

Every so often a little bonus arrives! On Wednesday it was in the form of being chosen for The Guild of Photographer’s Image of the Day!

A wedding at the Slaughters Manor House

This gorgeous image of Amy and Allan on their wedding day at The Slaughters Manor House in Lower Slaughter has a quintessentially Cotswold feel to it. Is it any wonder that they film period dramas in this stunning Cotswold village!

One of the questions asked was; ‘How was the shot taken?’…

The shot was taken on a super-hot day in June in the picture perfect Lower Slaughter. Amy and Allan had brought their sun glasses with them as a giggle and something that’s very them. I know this bridge well as it’s an iconic location and it also provided a little shade and respite from the heat. I asked Amy if she would mind sitting on the centuries old bridge for a photograph and if they would both remove their shoes. They were totally up for some fun in their photographs as well as their more timeless portraits. We had a real giggle taking these complete with tourists watching on! I’m delighted that this was also awarded a Bronze.

The camera settings for interest were:

F4, exposure 1/160 with an ISO of 800 and an exposure bias of +1.7. Using a 100mm lens and a Canon 5D MKIII. No flash.

What I love about this image…

What I love about this image is that it shows them as they truly are; happy, in love, and totally at ease and in tune with each other. It’s very relaxed and fun yet its also a timeless shot which will still look current in years to come.
