Caroline and Simon Wedding at the Vineyard, Newbury - 2nd shooting for Boundless Photos

by Robert Whetton 6. April 2011 21:37

This is late in coming, I was so tied up at the end of last year in trying to get the new blog up and running, that I forgot to post 2 weddings from October. The first is Caroline and Simon's wedding in Newbury. This was a special wedding for Boundless Photos because Caroline is Nick's cousin. No pressure then.. The day started looking promissing with the weather holding (rain had been forecast). But as I travelled north, the clouds closed in and it started to drizzle. Simon was staying at the Vineyard just off of the A34 in Newbury.

Like many Grooms, Simon had difficulty figuring out how to tie his cravat. I think I need to charge extra to show the Groom and his Groomsmen how to tie these.

Simon's mums hat rather suited him.

What's a wedding without children?

Although not allowed in the church. Caroline and Simon's dog waited patentialy outside. But what's the expression? Don't work with children or animals?
Luckily the sun came out to play for the rest of the day.

Everyone was keen to throw their confetti.

Summer Weddings 2010

by Robert Whetton 4. October 2010 14:19
Crazy times.. I've been wanting to update information on here for a long time, but everytime I try and put a post together something else comes up! I've finally found 10 mintues to put together this post.

Over the Summer I've been out shooting weddings as a 2nd, covering the Grooms morning for Boundless Photos up in Lymington Spa. The first set is from back in August, when Rachel and Jay got married at Wroxall Abbey. Jay and his best man were a pleasure to cover in the morning, plenty of laughs.

I have to say this Magician was very impressive, and gave great entertainment to all the guests.

This 2nd wedding, when Jo and Gareth tied the knot was on the 18th September, the Church was a mobile black hole around Hook Norton. And then after, the reception was held a really nice golf club in Chipping Norton.

Family Holiday - Cornwall, 7 Days without a Camera

by Robert Whetton 11. August 2010 13:49
Yeah! right and monkeys might fly out of my butt! Are you crazy? put my camera down???

Weather was pants, but then what holiday in the UK doesn't come with its share of overcast and rain.. The kids had a blast and I vaguely got some rest?

Some of the highlights from the holiday.

No holiday in Cornwall is complete without fish and chips down on a quay.

This one legged Gull was quite a character, very aggressive against the other Gulls though.

Day 2 of the holiday was greeted by rain. Luckily there was an indoor play area near by and the kids had a blast with the indoor crazy golf.

Rachels diabetic complications reared their ugly head on Monday, so I took the kids for a walk along the local beach.

What I thought was an unusual butterfly, is actually a Moth. The Six-spot Burnet (Zygaena filipendulae) is a day-flying moth of the family Zygaenidae.

Tuesday day 4 and Rachel is feeling well enough to come out for a trip. Lanhydrock, a National Trust country house in Bodmin.

For Lunch we ended up at Mevagissey a small fishing town. Rachel has fond childhood memories of crab fishing here. So this was our first attempt at crab fishing, we didn't actually catch anything.

Rachel's Dad and his wife came down and stayed at a B+B and we met up with them at The Eden Project. This is such an amazing bit of construction. We first visited 6 years ago. It was still under construction then, so it was good to see it complete.

After the camera and lenses had climatized to the rainforest dome, I took a few photographs. This was part of the Vietnamese area.

It felt so good to get out and have a break in the restaurant before heading into the Mediterranean dome. It has some amazing flowers.

There were so many people, that in order to get a photo of just Rachel I took a photo with people in different positions and then merged them together in Photoshop to remove the people from the photograph.

And some interesting statues. This is one that was explaining that the Romans used to put lead in their wine. There were a whole group of these statues including one of a bull.

Outside was this amazing sculpture made from waste electronics.

We headed up to Newquay on day 5. First stop, Newquay Zoo. A family of Azara's Agouti.

Asian Otters are the cutest things ever!

Awww Meercats, aren't they so cute.. Then they show their other side!
After the zoo, we headed into Newquay for some shops - Women! need their retail fix..

After the shopping spree, we headed back to camp and had dinner. Afterwards I took the kids to a little port round the corner - Charlestown for some evening crab fishing.

It didn't take long and Maisy caught her first crab of the holiday. She was very pleased! We caught 3 crabs in total that evening, Maisy 1 Max 2.

On the walk back to the car I got this shot of the port.

Ok so Friday, Day 6 and effectively the last day of the holiday as we needed to vacate our place by 10am on the Saturday. All week I had wanted to go to Adrenalin Quarry and take Britains' longest zip line. The brochure looked really good and with it promising that "Anyone can do The Zip" I didn't even think about checking through the small print for maximum weight limit. After all they'd already said Anyone can do The Zip, that's right Anyone.
It's a fair old trek to get there. Everyone is excited, the kids can't wait, I'm all this is going to be so cool etc. Then when we're just about to fill in the disclaimer forms, the lady behind the desk says, there's a minimum weight limit of 15KG and maximum of 115KG..
I couldn't believe it.. "but I'm about 125KG" I said. "Sorry that's too heavy, but please feel free to step on our scales to check" she said. Balls! 137KG. So that was my holiday treat scuppered.. The nice lady did say that they had this information in the brochure. And there it was plane as day when she pointed it out in small black writing under the address at the back! What a crock! whoever put the brochure and website together - YOU SUCK! how about, where you have NO AGE LIMIT, NO EXCUSES, you have *Weight Limits Apply ?
Summer Holiday 2010 in Cornwall. Photography by Robert Whetton Photographer
So that was that, off to Looe then for some more retail therapy and crab fishing. While sitting eating lunch, these 2 Sea Gulls were having a fight over what looked like a chunk of squid. I wish I'd gotten the camera earlier, one had his bill around the others neck! quite a fight!
This was taken with my 28-75 2.8 and then heavily cropped after (got to love the quality of image from the 28-75 and 50D), I didn't want to be burdened with Lenses when fishing with the kids.

Maisy was very pleased with her haul of crabs. Under her you can see what we used as bait, it was extremely effective vs using the bait of fish from the local shops.
Summer Holiday 2010 in Cornwall. Photography by Robert Whetton Photographer
Bucket of crabs. Success rate was about 80% per throw the net.. Sometimes you'd get a really big one hanging on then just as you pulled the net out of the water, they'd let go.
Summer Holiday 2010 in Cornwall. Photography by Robert Whetton Photographer
An escapee. He made it all the way off the side of the quay into the water (I'm not sure we didnt catch him in the end).
Summer Holiday 2010 in Cornwall. Photography by Robert Whetton Photographer
After coming back from her retail fix, even Rachel caught crabs.

Nice close up of one of the crabs in the bucket.

So that was our holiday, kids had a blast, and I always have fun with the kids!

Dorset Wedding Photographer Robert Whetton 2nd Shooting for Boundless Photos at Ettington Park

by Robert Whetton 25. July 2010 19:51

Last week saw me up north shooting a Friday Wedding with Nick from Boundless Photos. Jon couldn't be there and so I took the place of Jon for the day. Following the Groom, Chris around in the morning before the ceremony and then merging with Nick and taking candid photographs throughout the day and generally assisting him.

I think it's safe to say that everyone at the wedding had a great time. The photo booth photographs show they certainly were!

A few of my shots taken throughout the day.
