Amy and Steven – Wentworth Church Wedding
We feature the lovely wedding of Amy and Steven who has their ceremony at Wentworth Church before we moving on to the infamous reception venue, in the Grand Marble Room. Their special day was captured by Nicola Jayne Photography.
Amy and Steven were so excited from the moment i met them – they had found their dream wedding venue and couldn’t wait for the day. We instantly got on like we’d known one another previously and found ourselves talking for a long time about a wide variety of subjects. They are a wonderful couple and are clearly very in love. I couldnt wait to photograph their special day.
Please tell us a little bit about the day and how it went
The British weather didn’t let this summer wedding down. It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day which meant we had lots of opportunities for photographs in the incredible grounds of Wentworth Woodhouse. The heart felt ceremony was held at Wentworth Church before we moved on to the infamous reception venue, in the Grand Marble Room.
Do tell us a little bit about yourself
I am writing this coming up to my sixth year in the wedding photography industry. People more than ever, are asking me why I do what I do. How do I remain motivated, engaged, creative and excited to photograph ‘another wedding’…Well, here goes.
I explain regularly to people that wedding photography, for me, has taken me down aisles (quite literally) I never thought I would have ventured. If someone had said to me 10 years ago that I would, week in, week out, photograph weddings, I would no doubt have pondered the thought thinking how incredible that job must be,…but surely not so attainable to achieve.
Yet here I am, 6 years in and many a wedding later…
I still can’t quite give a specific answer as to why I Love to do, what I do. If you were to ask my family and friends, they would tell you, I love anything to do with both Weddings and Photography. Put the 2 together and there is my dream job. Facts – I’m emotionally driven, always have been. I connect with people and situations easily so no doubt photographing couples who are experiencing one of the most pivotal and emotional moments in their lives was always going to somewhat fascinating to me.
I also love the responsibility of documenting a small piece of history that I know will be looked at for years and years to come. There’s something very humbling about this.
Whilst I’m feisty, determined and driven; my husband will tell you that I am a softy at heart. The honest truth is that there are many times during wedding ceremonies and throughout watching the unfolding of the day’s events through the lens, that i feel very emotional.
There is something very special, fascinating and unique about capturing couples and their families during their very beautiful, vulnerable moments on their wedding day.
How would you describe your photography style?
Contemporary, fresh, modern and stylish.
What did you love about the day?
They were so very much in love and it was a privilege to witness and capture the days events. The Church was architecturally beautiful and the Marble Room and grounds of Wentworth Woodhouse are simply out of this world; any wedding photographers dream back drop…
