Marianne & Mark - Odiham All Saints

I last shot at Odiham All Saints Church back in 2009 when I photographed the marriage of Andrew & Louise. Rev Gary Keith, the Vicar, made a real impression on me back then for being particularly welcoming and incredibly accommodating as far as photography goes. I like to be as discrete as possible in church, but it's also helpful if I can move in a quiet and relatively unrestricted manner. I don't move a lot and I don't get too close to the couple during the ceremony, but Gary's approach to photography is refreshing and I'm thankful for the trust he has placed in me on the two occasions I've photographed in his church. Cheers Gary!

Marianne and Mark were married at Odiham All Saints on 20th May. The extreme wind of recent weeks was relenting on the day and the weather played nice. Following the ceremony we headed 3 mins down the road to Marianne's Matron of Honour's stunning house. As an avid rider, Claire has lots of land and the marquee and open space was the perfect setting for a warm spring wedding. Mark and Marianne are a brilliantly energetic couple (as the evening pictures show!) and shooting their day was a huge amount of fun. I'm particularly happy with the evening portrait set we shot. We were really pushed for light and ended up shooting just after sunset. Photographers go on and on about the 'golden hour' before sunset, but shooting after sunset (the 'blue hour' as a photographer friend of mine named it) was a real revelation. The light was soft and gentle and though a challenge for my equipment I'm really happy with the results! Twilight ftw!

As usual these are a selection of my favourites, starting with the morning coverage through until the end of a truly raucous party. Fully Funktional, the band on the night, were one of the best groups I've come across in my time, friendly, talented and with bags of musicianship. I highly recommend them. Anyway, without further ado, some pictures:
