This shot from Susi and Rupert’s wedding is the next in my series of documentary and artistic wedding photography images.
This has got to be one of my favourite bride and groom portraits. The location of this awesome vintage filling station is actually in the tiny village of Hamsterley in County Durham. This is also the village I went to primary school in, and the house I grew up in is just a few miles down the road. It’s a fantastic little spot, and I never thought I would be lucky enough to get to use it for a wedding shoot. Rupert’s older brother and sisters went to the same school as me, so when their mum got in touch to book me for Rupert and Susi’s wedding I was over the moon.
The colours and textures in this place are great, and the perfect background for an alternative wedding photo like this. Due to the remoteness and obscurity of this location Susi and Rupert will be able to say with confidence that nobody else will have a wedding photo like this! They went on to have one of the craziest parties I’ve ever seen, and I’m sure I’ll be sharing more from this wedding in this series.
