The stuff of fairytales: a real-life Cinderella.
Waddesdon Manor provides the magical setting for this stunning image. We chose this setting for the formal portraits because it gives a backdrop that looks so picturesque it almost looks unreal. To add to the sense of hyper-reality we processed the image with a high contrast black & white special effect then added a colour filter to give it the timeless feel of an illustration.
One challenge we faced on the day was that Waddesdon Manor is open to the public. As you can imagine, being a saturday afternoon it was heaving with members of the public (if you look closely you can see some people in the background). As luck would have it we managed to find a brief moment of calmness when we could take this definitive shot.
Everything seemed to come together for us on the day; the classic wedding car covered the busy entrance of the manor while the weather was kind to us - even though it was a winter wedding and bitterly cold you wouldn't believe it by looking at the photo. In fact, it was so cold the bride got back in the car soon after this shot and felt it was too cold to carry on; so we got the shot we needed in a very limited time window. The couple are thrilled with the image and feel it perfectly sums up a magical day - a memorable way to begin their life together.
