Winter Wedding Photography in Shropshire and Herefordshire
Lots of people opt for a winter wedding for so many reasons. The months of November to February offer up some real advantages.
I’ve been a professional wedding photographer for well over a decade now, so I am fortunate enough to have worked at some truly stunning and special winter weddings. You can have a look at my gallery here.
Winter weddings can be cheaper
Often, wedding venues offer cheaper rates over the winter and availability is higher as summer weekends can be booked up years in advance.
Something to look forward to
It’s something to look forward to during this time of quieter social times. Cosy fires, changing leaves, crisp sunny days and for many, more time in the winter are a real draw.
British winter weather
Winter weather is appealing to many with bright sunny days, or the hope of snow. And many brides see their dream dress and wedding staging suiting winter conditions better than summer. Winter wedding photography is something I really love. English winter is rather mild and often promises much better weather than some summer weddings.
White winter weddings
In every season you can get some amazing wedding photo opportunities. For many couples a white winter wedding is the dream. I was lucky enough to have experienced a snowy wedding day just a couple of years ago in Shropshire.
How do you choose a wedding photographer?
Obviously, none of us can control the weather, but I pride myself on my experience of using off camera flash and additional creative lighting to suit a winter wedding. Lighting is so important, and the light is much different in the winter months, so it’s important to choose a photographer who knows how to handle it and get the most from your precious day. Not every photographer handles the winter light very well and the risk of not receiving beautiful winter wedding images is quite high.
Natural light photography
Many photographers prefer to use the available and natural light. In December it gets dark very early and very often photographers have to choose between the formal group pictures and the more artistic photos of the couple.
Off camera flash
Ask your photographer if they know the OCF – that will be a great way of checking if they know what they are doing. If your photographer knows how to use the off-camera flash, the schedule of your wedding day can be much more flexible, and the images can be more magical too.
Special offer for all winter weddings booked
As everything returns to normal, I want to offer a really special offer to all my clients who book their winter wedding photography with Catherine Evans Photography.
I would like to offer my couples a completely FREE engagement shoot as part of their wedding photography package. This is usually booked as an extra, but all couples who book me for their wedding in January or February 2023 will be able to take advantage of this offer.
I will gift the shoot fee and one 12×8 fine art print as part of the offer worth nearly £150.
I can also offer bespoke packages tailored to the hours any couple would like to book me for.
Engagement or pre-wedding shoots are a fantastic idea. You can read all about why in my blog here.
So, if you are planning your own winter wedding, get in touch with me. I would love to be your photographer.
