Wedding at Upnor Castle and Corn Exchange, Rochester

I had a wonderful time on Saturday photographing Rachel and Colin's wedding at Upnor Castle and the Corn Exchange, Rochester - both are great venues. A really lovely couple who gave me plenty of time to do a proper job with the photography. The ceremony was held in a very dark room within the castle - this is when it really pays to have a decent flash system. The light outside, on the other hand, was incredibly strong giving high contrast conditions, so we took as many photographs in open shade as possible. For exterior shots I had my 580EX II set to high speed sync mode (labelled on the flash unit as FP, or focal plane, mode) which allows you to use flash at above the X-sync speed - very useful!
