Wedding photography Lost Village of Dode

My website: Wedding Photographers in Kent

A selection of images with EXIF data from Lorna and Stuart's wedding at The Lost Village of Dode on Saturday. To see more please check out their wedding gallery.

HDR (-2, 0, +2), f/5, ISO 200, 16mm, 16-35mm f/2.8L II

It was a perfect day for high dynamic range (HDR) shots with lots of dramatic clouds in the sky.

1/60, f/1.2, ISO 1600, ⅓ EV, 85mm f/1.2L II

Ceremonies at the Lost Village of Dode take place in a deconsecrated mediaeval church. It's very dark.

1/125, f/1.4, ISO 1250, ⅓ EV, 35mm f/1.4L

It's also very atmospheric!

1/80, f/1.4, ISO 2500, 0 EV, 35mm f/1.4L

1/40, f/2.8, ISO 3200, ²⁄₃ EV, 16mm, 16-35mm f/2.8L II

Check out the exposure details. A camera which performs well at high ISO is essential for this venue.

1/4000, f/2.8, ISO 200, ‒ 1 EV, 23mm, 16-35mm f/2.8L II

Notice the negative exposure compensation (EC) to take account of the darker tones and preserve highlights.

1/800, f/2.5, ISO 50, ‒ ²⁄₃ EV, 35mm f/1.4L

After the civil ceremony Lorna and Stuart had a pagan ceremony. Apparently these are still legally binding in Scotland.

1/500, f/2.8, ISO 50, ‒ ²⁄₃ EV, 200mm, 70-200mm f/2.8L IS

This chap's pagan days are obviously behind him!

1/4000, f/4, ISO 200, ‒ 1 EV, 16mm, 16-35mm f/2.8L II

Check out the sky. Nature put on a fine display for us.

1/3200, f/4, ISO 200, ‒ ²⁄₃ EV, 16mm, 16-35mm f/2.8L II

The beautiful valley of Dode. Not a bad setting for a wedding.

1/1250, f/5.6, ISO 200, ‒ ²⁄₃ EV, 32mm, 16-35mm f/2.8L II

Initially I thought I was about to witness some advanced limbo technique.

1/2000, f/1.6, ISO 50, ‒ ²⁄₃ EV, 35mm f/1.4L

How about that for a wedding line-up - fantastic costumes.

1/4000, f/1.4, ISO 200, ‒ ²⁄₃ EV, 35mm f/1.4L

1/2500, f/1.4, ISO 50, ‒ 1 EV, 35mm f/1.4L

1/400, f/2, ISO 50, 0 EV, 85mm f/1.2L II

1/100, f/2, ISO 1000, ‒ 1 EV, 85mm f/1.2L II

Indoors at The Leather Bottle in Cobham. I love Lorna's jewellery.

1/1000, f/2, ISO 200, ‒ 1 EV, 85mm f/1.2L II

Their son in a lovely pool of soft light.

1/100, f/2.8, ISO 2500, ²⁄₃ EV, 16mm, 16-35mm f/2.8L II

Back to Dode for the banquet.

1/320, f/1.4, ISO 2500, ²⁄₃ EV, 35mm f/1.4L

Definitely in keeping with the mediaeval setting.

Any comments or queries are welcome as ever.
