This is wedding I photographed three days ago at the Roman baths. Mark and Theresa eloped to this stunning venue and kept things simple with the venue providing the witnesses to the wedding.
If you do not know the Roman baths as a wedding venue you have two options to get married. The venue is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the UK and therefore getting married around the water’s edge during the day is just not possible. So, if you want to get married at this stunning venue you have two options. An early morning start with a wedding at 8-30am, yes that’s right 8-30am or a sunset wedding at 7pm.
Mark and Theresa decided to go with the early option meaning we had to be out of the venue by 9-10am. This gave me a 17-minute window to capture the photographs of them in and around the ancient waters once frequented by the Romans two thousand years ago.
I am always looking to give my couples variety in their wedding photographs. I think there is nothing worse than all the picture being taken in the same place and looking the same. So, to achieve this in 17 minutes I have to get my skates on. Forward planning was the secret to achieving this and I knew exactly the shots I wanted to get before they even got married. This really speeds up the process but that’s not to say at time I was physically running around the water’s edge to get my shots.
Such a fun wedding to photograph and I hope you agree, that despite the very tight timeline, we ended up with a beautiful selections of wedding photographs for the bride and groom to enjoy.
