Wedding News, Venue Ideas, Wedding Planning etc.

Documentary wedding photography has taken me to some fantastic places in the UK and abroad, while allowing me to photograph an important stage in people’s lives. What a great privilege!! It’s on this page that I want to share that story with you when I show a few favourite images from these weddings. This is where I also post my latest news so you know what’s happening at Clive Blair Photography.

You’ll see the emphasis in my photography is not around posed group photos. Instead the solid emphasis is to be more of a fly-on-the-wall, natural documentary photographer capturing those fleeting moments that tell the story of each wedding.

“Pinterest-inspired” weddings has become very popular these days. This is when a photographer is given a long list of images gleaned from Pinterest and being asked to re-create these images on a wedding. But instead of trying to recreate images from someone else’s wedding, I’d rather capture the moments of YOUR history, creating YOUR unique images that no one else will ever, or can ever have. Which would you rather have?

I know which one sings to my heart! I hope these image will sing the same song for you too, inspiring you to enjoy the documentary, moment-driven style of wedding coverage.

Cheshire Winter Wedding | Rebecca and Ryan

You’d expect a winter wedding to be cold and damp, with poor lighting. But not this Mottram Hall wedding celebration. On one of the warmest winter’s day Rebecca and Ryan tied the knot at Mottram Hall.

Napton Windmill Wedding | Lucy and George

When Lucy and George told me were they having their wedding reception in the grounds of Lucy’s parents home that had a windmill, to say I was excited, would be an understatement.

How to Plan Your Wedding From Abroad | Callum and Jean

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it’s plan sailing to plan your wedding from abroad, but it need not be a daunting task with the right team on board. See how I helped Jean plan her perfect wedding while she lived in China.

Winter Wedding | Jade and David
