Once all the wedding nerves or chaos has subsided, it’s time to take the happy wedding couple for a walk in the woods or surrounding grounds.
After the nerves from the ceremony, the anxiety over whether your guests will enjoy their meal, not to mention the scary speeches.
If the time of year and the weather are right I like to take the newly weds for a walk in the woods once their meal has went down and they are relaxed. Of course it may not be woods but whatever grounds there are it’s nice for the couple to get some fresh air and take a breather from all the pressure.
I like to get some natural shots as well as some posed ones and a little light direction usually produces results where they all end up pretty relaxed and natural.
In the following examples the lovely Mark and Lynne are walking through the woods of Murrayshall House Hotel and Golf Course, near Perth which is in fact around a mile of where I live so getting there and back is a breeze – I guess that’s the pressure off for all of us then.
