Maff & Tanya’s wedding at Bassmead Manor Barns | Autumn 2016

Maff and Tanya are both big music fans and follow a wide of mix bands, they both share a love of the Indie and grunge scenes and throughout their wedding day decided to spread various favourite and classic tracks. Maff is a member of successful band who are currently taking break; but we’ve already agreed to collaborate once more when they’re back on the road, so watch this space!

“We would 100% recommend Peter to anybody looking for a photographer who feels more like a friend! Easy to work with, great and original ideas and passionate about capturing amazing moments!”
Tanya & Maff Brown 08.10.16 | Bassmead Manor Barns

In my photographs I always strive to create a connection which I hope will transport people back to the most special of moments. Couples I work with; including Maff and Tanya, usually explain how they want to see the true side of their wedding story and their wedding photographs as an honest, authentic and meaningful record.  I meet and work with wedding couples who have a desire to create  moments in their own way, it’s therefor my job to watch, see those moments and make photographs which are both creative and inspiring to look back on.

“…On the day of the wedding 08.10.16 at Bassmead Manor Barns, Peter was laid back and great fun, he blended in with our whole day and after a few giggles we didn’t even notice he was taking photo’s and the day flowed beautifully. Peter made the most of grabbing some beautiful photo opportunities whilst we could and took us out to some beautiful areas around the venue that we didn’t even know existed in order to get some original photographs of us as a couple. We personally loved this aspect of his spontaneity as it was creative and meant we had personal photographs that didn’t have the same backdrop as all other bride & groom’s getting married at the same venue.”  – Maff & Tanya

Bridal Preprations – It doesn’t have to be all about shoes’s and details:)  There is often a great story unfolding during the morning of a wedding which make great photographs. Tanya spent a chilled wedding morning with her mum, mother in-law to be and bridesmaids.

A personal favourite photo of mine; taken whilst Tanya is talking with her make up artist. I look for nice light and when its available like it was here then I make the most of it!  The window light here is flattering to the skin and Tanya’s eye’s look full of life.

Giving away – Proud and emotion filled moment for Tanya’s father.

Photographs like the one below only communicate clear connection and meaning if  when look at it we feel connected as part of the scene. For Maff & Tanya there was little or no conscious awareness that they were being photographed or as to what I was doing. Why?  Because even before their wedding day they had the feeling of being comfortable around me, loved my style of photography and were familiar the results they’d seen in my portfolio.

What a moment.. the connection between Maff and Tanya here is powerful. I’m certain that for a briefest moment they were alone together in that filled room.

I always look to create individual photographs of people. Portraits in my mind are about the people I work with, so they should personal and an expression of themselves and their connection.
