I had the pleasure of photographing Tracy and Paul's wedding at the Holy Trinity Church, Broadstairs and The Bell Hotel, Sandwich on Saturday. I've finished processing all the shots from Broadstairs so thought I'd publish a selection on the blog today. The wedding gallery will be published online in a day or two.

The light and the sky were both magnificent on Saturday, probably the best I've seen this year. The Church was also reasonably well-lit - I didn't have to use ISO 3200 for once. The downside was the Arctic conditions - it was absolutely freezing! Tracy and Paul chose to have some portraits and group shots on the jetty. Combined with the wind chill factor down by the seafront I'd have estimated the temperature was below freezing. Tracy lasted for about 40 minutes wearing just her wedding dress in these conditions and didn't complain once - very impressive. For their honeymoon they've gone off for 2 months to climb mountains all round the world - these are tough people!

I had great fun balancing the ambient and flash light for the portrait shots. Check out the exposure and flash compensation figures. I've had a few queries regarding tips on this technique - I'll publish a post on flash exposure compensation very soon.

Thanks to Charlie the surfer for joining us for a few shots. This could be the beginnings of a new movement in wedding photography!
