Old Wedding with a New Edit # 4

Really loving writing this series of blogs and getting to look back on weddings from the past that I may have forgotten about otherwise. This blog is from an Oxwich Bay Wedding in May I think – the dates all merge into one after 300 weddings!! I remember it fairly well as there were a number of interesting elements to it. The bride was from Swansea and the groom had Chinese heritage so they included a ‘Tea ceremony‘ and something before the ceremony where the groom and his men played games (dressed in animal onesies) to win the hand of the bride who watched through a door by the bride before they met briefly and then went off to get ready apart at the Oxwich Bay Hotel.

The bride and Groom were Pippa and Henry and their previous edit (see blog here) was the standard for the time. This edit is actually bolder than that and to make it in Lightroom, I have combined an old Fuji 160C preset with a Kodak tone and then changed the ‘Tone curve’, camera profile and the ‘split toning’. I have made a number of my own presets in the past and it is not always easy to get the balance right … which I am not sure I have here. It looks good but I am not sure how versatile it would be for every wedding – although this was quite a low light wedding so may work even better on a sunny day. The black and whites are very dark and I like that – but I tried a little colour edge on it but I am unsure if that really works.

Let me know what you think. You can get in touch if you like what you see and would like to chat about your photography for you wedding day. Our contact form can be found here.
