On the site today we feature the beautiful wedding of Sabine and Gaiostopher’s Wedding captured by Minna Rossi Photography.
Below is a selection of some of my favourite images from Sabine and Gaiostopher’s August wedding in Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire. It’s a real pleasure to capture a wedding day when you see how happy the couple are together, excited to be taking their vows, and they show their joy openly.
Please tell us a little bit about the day and how it went. What did youlove about the day?
The day started with capturing Sabine getting ready at her parents’ home in Alsager. She had chosen a beautiful lace wedding gown, shoes to match and already had her hair up done up in a chic up do by the time I arrived.
As a wedding photographer I photograph all the usual details; the bouquet, the dress and its lace, the shoes etc. but am always happy to take client’s requests and capture any other special mementos they may have; jewellery the bride will wear, something she may have borrowed for the day, love notes and cards. It’s these little details that make every
wedding unique and are very personal and meaningful to the couple.
Sabine had mentioned during our initial wedding photography consultation that she really liked candid, reportage style portraits so I “papped” quite a few of the guests outside the registry office after the wedding ceremony, between courses of the wedding breakfast (not when anyone was eating of course), during the speeches and later mingling at the evening reception. These were mixed in with a few more formal portraits early on in the day of Sabine and her parents with and without the car, group shots and cutting the cake.
It felt like quite an international day; there were guests from the UK, Germany and all the way from Gambia, where Gaiostopher’s family is originally from. The wedding ceremony took place at the registry office of Hanley Town Hall and the reception at Alsager Golf & Country Club. An elegant black and white colour theme for the day pulled together the cake,
flowers, table decorations and extended to the dress code for the guests. All in all, it was a really relaxed, but special day and it was a pleasure to be part of it.
Do tell us a little bit about yourself
I’m a friendly, female professional photographer based in London, but regularly shooting weddings across the South East of England. I specialise in portraits and weddings, but also photograph events, parties, birthdays etc.
How would you describe your photography style?
I tend to shoot in a really natural, candid and relaxed style, but add more posed couple’s portraits and group shots to the mix. I keep my processing very natural looking as well -I’m happy to create for example a matt, vintage look to the images when asked to, but brides can always add filters of their choice when they have a nice, natural starting point.
