A few photos from a wonderful wedding shot in a classic documentary style with few gently staged bride anf groom portraits. First part of this wedding took place in a Synagogue and then it was moved to The Hemsley building. The Hemsley is part of the University of Nottingham and it is located between the Hallward Library and the School of Sociology and Social Policy. It is a great and affordable venue for weddings and social events.
The Hemsley may be a popular choice for couples who study at the Nottingham University. The grounds around the venue have plenty of nice spots that can serve as a background for photo portraits. You won’t have to walk far, which is a big advantage because that also saves time. During this wedding we went for a nice short walk and I took pictures in various areas. I kept my distance to give the newlyweds some room to breathe. /naturally, this required the use of a telephoto lens. I like to keep my distance when I’m shooting portraits, although this largely depends on the nature of the portrait. I think it brings out the best of the couple since they feel more at ease. Most newlyweds are not professional models and one must keep that in mind. Many couples won’t be able to relax completely when the photographer is standing too close to them. Imagine kissing your love one right in front of a stranger who keeps clicking the shutter a meter away from you. How relaxed could you be?
