Second shooting an A-Team wedding in Hunton Park

This was my second time working at Hunton Park, and second shooting for Kenny Wong again, as we collaborate on a regular basis.

I was covering the groom’s preparations in this occasion, which is always fun and different. I don’t get to shoot the groom’s preparations normally when I work for my own clients, as the main photographer I always stay with the bride, so it is great to second shoot every now and then and get to cover these other parts of the day and explore my  more masculine side!

As a surprise, the groomsmen had an A-team van prepared for the groom, who was a fan of the TV show, ready to take them to the church. Driven by Mr.T lookalike! I was lucky enough to travel with them in the van. I cannot really say that being a wedding photographer is boring…

The wedding ceremony was at Saint Mary Magdalene’s church in Enfield, north London. This church is absolutely amazing, outside and inside, specially inside. A shame that we were quite restricted and the taking of the photos was only allowed from above and we couldn’t get close to the bride and the groom.

After the ceremony in Enfield, we all moved to Hunton Park again for the reception and wedding breakfast.

There, there were a lot of kids playing and a many kids trying out the fascinators and hats from their mums, which I captured in some photos you can see below.

Second shooting in Portsmouth

I love second shooting every now and then. Of course I love shooting my own weddings, being in charge of everything photographywise…editing and delivering the final product to my clients. But second shooting is fun and more relaxed than being the main tog, so it is a great opportunity to second shoot for someone else whenever I have a free date and they need an extra pair of hands.

These photos here were taken by me on May whilst second shooting at a wedding in Portsmouth.

I started the day at the impressive Portchester Castle in Portsmouth, where the groom and groomsmen were waiting for the arrival of guests at St. Mary’s Church. St. Mary’s Church is a church inside the castle grounds. The whole place was gorgeous, with the south walls leading to the sea, and they day couldn’t be more perfect, what a beautiful sky we had! I truly enjoyed taking photos of the surroundings.

I was there covering this part of the day while Kenny was covering the bride’s preparations.

I have been collaborating with Kenny for a while second shooting for him when he needs someone and I am free, and the other way around too.

As a matter of fact, yesterday was one of those days…Yesterday’s wedding was so much fun, including a surprise the bride prepared for the groom and made for some great photos. I will be posting some of those photos here (my second shooting experiences) in the near future, unfortunately a bit too early to share that now.

Hunton Park wedding, a Christmas winter wedding

Hunton Park was the last wedding venue I was working in last year, at the end of November.  I was second shooting for Kenny Wong for this event. He had come along second shooting for me for Nicola and Gary’s wedding on September and this time was my turn.

I really like winter weddings. There is something very romantic and cozy about them, even more with the Christmas tree and decorations at Hunton Park. Clare and Darien chose silver pinecones and red holly berries as decorations, perfect for their Christmasy wedding. Red and silver was also the color of Clare’s bouquet.
