Wedding Photography at The Ashes 20th November 2018

The Ashes Wedding Venue-001
If you want a photographer who is going to capture the natural moments then Ed is the man.
We didn’t want lots of posing photos for our wedding, we are not really the couple to do loads of selfies and when looking at pictures of us together the ones we love are the ones where we didn’t know they were being taken.

I came across Ed on Facebook not because he was posting tonnes of stuff on Facebook groups but simply his page. The picture on his cover just summed up what I was looking for.

We communicated mainly electronically and then just before the wedding to discuss final details. Which was great, being busy in the week meant I could just message him any time of the day and answer would follow when he was available.

When we met Ed had a lovely personality, we discussed details about the weddings and that we wanted to do a very small formal photo setting for the family. He did give us a pack of suggested formal line ups and took note of all the combinations we need ready for the day.
I left feeling confident that Ed knew what we wanted and would achieve that.

Ed handled it really well and just went about setting us up somewhere we could go. When we had the formal photos it didn’t feel like a chore at all, it was actually fun.

You saw why when we got the pictures back, they were wonderful.

There were some absolutely gorgeous natural pictures of my husband and I.  I look at them today and it makes me want to do the whole day again, they are well captured.  I would highly recommend Ed.
