I am lucky enough to be the one to photograph the wedding of this really lovely couple in September at Winchester Guildhall. So yesterday evening we went for a wander through the city to look for potential spots for portraits and group shots. Yet again I was struck by how fortunate I am to have, in Winchester, this incredible canvas to use. I have lived here for pretty much all my life and I still don’t feel I know it – round a corner will be a new vista or ancient building I’ve never seen before. Emma & Damian have a great venue in the Guildhall; as much for the grandeur & history of the building itself as for its location in the heart of the city – a few minutes walk from the cathedral, Abbey Gardens, and countless picturesque lanes and public spaces. Damian & I joked about using the bus station and the Subway sandwich shop if things got desperate, but even then in the back of mind I thought ‘for the right couple, that actually would work’. Winkie, I salute you!
Thank you for a lovely couple of hours prowling around the city yesterday Emma & Damian, I hope you like our practice shots!
