We first met Mark and Louise at A wedding fair at the White Rock Theatre, where they had come especially to see us which was rather nice. It was obvious from that meeting how passionate they were about their big day and what an important part the photography was to them. They’re a very laid back couple and we were looking forward to their day.
Although the reception was at The White Rock Theatre the service was to be held at Hastings Museum in the Amazing Dunbar Hall. The intricate carved furnishings of this extravagantly fashioned Indian Palace centrepiece were originally created for the 1886 Colonial and Indian Exhibition. The Durbar Hall is on two floors with a lantern roof and is carved in teak and deodar cedar. It is really dark in the Hall and we were worried our cameras wouldn’t key in but no fear all was good.
We captured the family group shots in the grounds of the Museum and a few nice images of the happy couple and then hot footed it to the White Rock. This is the first time the venue have held a wedding apart from the one we shot there a month ago. I must say they did a fab job and the food was some of the best we’ve had and we’ve tasted a lot.
We had the opportunity to go over to the new Hastings Pier with the couple and some of the wedding party. It’s a brilliant place for photography with interesting backdrops and great perspectives. Mark and Louise really enjoyed themselves and it shows in these pictures.
We stayed with the couple until the first dance. The love sign they had was brilliant, leaving a dramatic refection on the floor, love this image. We went home excited to see the different pictures we had captured.
