There's nothing to say that you can't use a location other than your venue/s for a wedding shoot and this is what we did. Birkenhead Park provided much prettier backdrops, lots more space and (ironically) much more privacy than either the church or the reception venue, so we built 30 minutes into the day's schedule and dropped in en route between the church and the reception.
Our park shoot was a little oasis of calm after the wedding ceremony, where the guests had very little space outside the church and no shade from the strong sun. It gave the couple (and myself a chance to relax in the cool shade.
Robin & Sarah relaxed beautifully into our whistlestop shoot, which made it a real pleasure. We moved on to The Boathouse, where I shot some of my favourite images of the day. Here's a trio of images that would make a beautiful framed triptych!
...and finally, just one from the reception that perhaps says it all: a wonderful day for two wonderful people.
