Last week I attended a day training course with Brett Harkness and thought I'd share a few of the images. For anyone involved in wedding photography or looking to get into it, I can't recommend his courses enough. Most of his arty shots are done using off camera flash, something I shall definitely be using at my upcoming weddings!

We met Ian & Jen back in September at the Curradine Barns in Worcestershire (http://www.curradinebarns.co.uk/), we ran through the details for the big day and they told us all about their honeymoon plans to Iceland to see the Northern Lights (wow, this one is definitely on my list of things to do)!
This was our first time at the barns and it instantly struck me as a warm, intimate venue, a lovely mixture of old and new in a fabulous rural setting. We shot Jen's sister's wedding back in 2012 and when I looked back to that day there are so many things that stood out for me, such as the hints to the Bride's Scottish roots and the brilliantly warm and funny speeches. So with a fabulous venue and a host of familiar faces, we just knew we were in for a great day!
Jen continued with the family tradition of the Scottish theme; tartan ribbons adorned the flowers and favours, there were beautiful blue thistles in the brides bouquet and the gents from the brides side wore their Scottish finest, I do love a kilt at a wedding!
We captured some beautiful shots around the grounds with Jen & Ian, the weather was so kind to us considering it was the end of November! These two were just too cute....
And this one just rounds off the day perfectly for me. When the party was in full swing and their guests danced and celebrated the night away, Ian and Jen had this moment, I get the feeling that they'd forgotten for just a few seconds about everyone else around them as they embraced, a perfect moment in time!

I was delighted to be asked to be on the judging panel for the Friends of Apley Woods March Photography competition. Entries are in and I've just selected my top 5. It was a difficult job, there were some lovely shots to choose from, but what I most enjoyed about the judging process was seeing the woods through other people's eyes. Apley Woods is a beautiful area and I'm lucky that its right on my doorstep. You'll often find us walking the dog through the woods or taking shots of my boy playing amongst the trees. I also regularly use the woods as a location for my family portrait sessions as it has so many points of interest for a photographer; wide open spaces, the enchanting enclosed avenue of trees, wonderful carvings dotted around, wildlife, beautiful blooms throughout the year and an interesting historical element. For more information on Apley Woods and the excellent work done by Friends of Apley Woods, you can visit their website here http://www.apleywoods.co.uk/index.php and if you're looking for examples of some family shots taken around the woods please see my gallery http://www.joedwardsphotography.co.uk/p337840591#h593b8d98, most of the outdoorsy shots you see here were taken in the woods. I'm looking forward to the bluebells popping up in a few weeks, they always make for some beautiful photographs!
