My best friend from school gets married next weekend and I really can’t wait for the day. It’s going to be all kinds of amazing! 🙂 I love that they’ve chosen to have a spring wedding: there is something enchanting about this time of year, don’t you think?
Visually, spring is just so beautiful. Blossom is all around; seasonal bouquets include lovely tulips, anemones and muscari (some of my absolute favourites) and your venue’s gardens will be starting to burst into life. You may be lucky enough to find a carpet of bluebells or even primroses for your wedding pics, and in late spring there’ll be wisteria-covered walls and beautiful magnolias creating the most colourful, natural backdrops for your portraits.
“Weddings in spring always have a feeling of freshness and new beginnings. The backdrop will usually be spring flowers scattered on the ground, a slight chill in the air, and soft afternoon sunshine. Suppliers and venues are gearing up for a busy season, and the first few weddings of the year are wrapped up in the excitement and anticipation of so many new opportunities to make a wedding day extra-special.” ~ Carol Elizabeth Photography

There’s a wonderful practicality to marrying in springtime too: it can save you money on venue hire for starters. Then there are hotel rates for your guests… anyone booking accommodation will thank you for choosing a date which is ‘out of season’. There are bank holidays aplenty (Easter, May Day) and those long weekends are perfect for getting hitched and making your celebrations last for days…
Images used in today’s blog feature are by my lovely friend and sponsor Carol Elizabeth Photography. “All the images here were captured during a training course at Hazlewood Castle, which was run by www.chrischamberstraining.co.uk. The location was perfect – spring blossoms, woodland, bluebells and gorgeous soft sunshine. I do prefer natural light, but as a photographer I need to be able to adapt to all situations and locations, which is why an understanding of other light sources is so important.”
Carol often attends training courses. She told me, “I feel that I am constantly striving to be a better wedding photographer, and training is a very important part of my progression. I also attend seminars, networking groups and tradeshows and interact online with a lot of other professional photographers. Its so important to keep up to date with current trends, advances in technology and equipment, and just generally to be a part of the wedding and photography communities.
