Poppy and Dan’s big day was set at Lympne Castle in Kent amid perfect autumn weather in November. I love weddings which are set in the late autumn or winter. The colours of the trees, the mist in the air, the smell of a wooden fire and everything else that comes with those crisp, fresh days is so atmospheric.
But autumn and winter weddings certainly come with their challenges. The sun sets early, rain can stop everything and it gets cold quick! When it comes to the photos, however, I know how to use the natural light to capture the authentic ambiance instead of relying on unflattering and uncontrollable lights.
Dan and Poppy decided to have their pre-wedding shoot closer to their big day so the photos would have the same, consistent autumn feel as the ones on the big day.
