VICTORIA & DEAN’S SWINTON PARK ELOPEMENT
They are becoming increasingly popular these ‘weddings for two’ and I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of Victoria & Dean’s Swinton Park elopement.
In one sense, there is a lot less pressure on a photographer in that there is less to cover, but at the same time, more pressure because there is nowhere for a photographer to hide.
Less, because an elopement or ‘wedding for two’ only has essentially 3 elements, – prep, ceremony, couple whereas a more typical or larger wedding day has around 20 ‘chapters’.
The sun did not exactly shine on Victoria & Dean’s day, but it wasn’t terrible either and both the hotel and grounds of Swinton Park are brilliant regardless of the weather.
Actually, this was not strictly speaking a ‘wedding for two’, but a ‘wedding of four’ as there were two other essential beings at this wedding, – Darcy & Rupert, – the couple’s dogs/children.
Victoria & Dean are currently on honeymoon in Cornwall. Or is it Devon? Devon or Cornwall…
1.30pm start and back in time for tea, – I really love shooting these days!
So without further ado, below, a selection of highlights from the day.
Venue: Swinton Park
Flowers: Twisted Willow
