If Capa Shot Weddings!

I love featuring weddings from the UK. Have a gander at this little beauty sent in by British photographer Phillip Allen.  They look like that had a lot of fun…

Petia and Chris married in March at Poole Guildhall in Dorset, UK. 
One of the most exciting aspects of the day for me as a photographer 
was a beach landing they made at Studland on the Isle of Purbeck, 
where their reception was held. After the ceremony they sailed out of 
Poole Harbour on a 40 foot yacht with family and close friends (who 
own and crewed the yacht) with a small outboard craft trailing 
behind. As we approached land, bride, groom, photographer and yacht’s 
skipper alighted the outboard and headed for the beach. The water was 
somewhat on the nippy side it not quite yet being Spring in the 
region but it added an exhilarating stimulus to an already exciting 
method of moving between wedding ceremony and reception. Prior to the 
big day I’d been researching Robert Capa’s beach landing shots, 
though thankfully we weren’t under fire on the day in question 
itself! A friend did retrospectively suggest adopting the approach of 
Method Wedding Photography though, stating that I should have ordered 
the groom (and by consequence the bride) to hit the surf face down!
