Recently I shot my first ever wedding shoot, it was a privilege to be asked and I thank the Bride and Groom Martin & Louise for trusting me to shoot their special day. Getting the kit ready and charging batteries, formatting memory cards, cleaning the lens's rechecking I had everything I needed and then again rechecking I guess everybody does this the first time and even still do when they have been shooting for years. Nerves was fine until I arrived at the brides house for the bride getting ready photos, that's when the nerves kicked in and it was a scorcher of a day. The scene was set, marque setup and laid out flowers arranged on tables and transport for the bride waiting outside.
I had my Nikon D600 with Tamron 28 - 300 lens which I thought was quite a versatile lens, also used Nikon 50mm prime and a Tamron 10 - 24mm lens also had my Nikon D7000 at hand. I knew that this was no easy task and used muscles that have been dormant since I left school, man I ached the day after. The work still not over as the easy task of transferring images from the memory cards is a very daunting prospect especially if it goes wrong or the cards can't be read, alas it all went well bit of post processing burning to disc or memory sticks and all done. Well you would think so next onto the wedding album now we are finished. I guess a lot of people think this it's just a days work or a few hours work depending on how long your booked for but in fact in reality it's more than just a day. Overall it was a mighty fine day and I enjoyed it immensely would I do it again absolutely.

Here are a few of the images from the day.
