When you take a couple outside in the rain onto one of the busiest high streets in the country, stop traffic, stop pedestrians and actually include pedestrians as actors in your shot... it better come out.
This is officially my favourite wedding image at the moment (the monochrome version further down this blog may actually be my fave) just because I know there's 4 ushers on either side of this picture trying to create a little walkway for thousands of weekend shoppers. This is actually the corner where the two met after chatting on the internet. I knew exactly what I wanted the image to turn out like and this must be one of the few times the image has ended up exactly how I imagined it, including the bike and taxi.
We only took a couple of shots outside, due to the rain and busy streets but I was so lucky the town hall had such a beautiful interior. A great challenge, a crazy couple who I've gotten to know much more as the year has gone by and a slight change to my normal wedding photographs.
Well, I was humbled to be asked back for their spring tour and here to show some of the highlights. I love working for these guys, not just because it's an amazing show and I get to eat popcorn but because it's a brilliant charity holding workshops for disabled children on top of helping sponsors purchase tickets. They're also developing an awesome app to help children understand their experience at the circus using my images. I can't wait to see how it comes out: http://www.circus-starr.org.uk/
