Pre wedding photo scouting at Catholic Church, Porthmadog, North Wales

Next week I’m photographing Frankie and Ollie’s wedding at Catholic Parish of the Most Holy Redeemer Church, Porthmadog, and Portmeirion.

There are large windows parallel to the aisle and a high ceiling.

This means the guests may be well lit, but Frakie and Ollie may be back lit. This means it will probably be a good idea to use a bit of flash, esp when she’s walking up the aisle.

There is plenty of room for me to stand back and keep out of the way.

Behind the altar there is a huge statue of Jesus set into a blue-tiled alcove.

I couldn’t figure out how to turn the lights on when I was there, so not sure how it will be lit.

I really like the blue tiles as a background, but they’re tricky to light because of being reflective and curved. This will call for off camera flash at a very shallow angle to the wall, perhaps diffused with one of my tri-reflectors.

There are steps leading up to the entrance of the church, which might make a good place for a confetti shot, with guests lining each side, although there is hand rail that’s a bit in the way.

The wedding reception is being held at Portmeirion and you can see my pre-wedding scout here.

    Im impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog thats both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, youve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about. Im very happy I came across this in my search for something regarding this.

    I and also my pals have been going through the best procedures located on the website and the sudden I had a horrible feeling I never expressed respect to you for those techniques. My women became consequently passionate to read through all of them and now have extremely been using those things. I appreciate you for simply being so kind as well as for picking these kinds of exceptional information most people are really desperate to know about. Our own sincere apologies for not expressing appreciation to sooner.

  • Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not certain if this really is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and style look wonderful though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos
