Castello Ceconi Wedding Photography Training Workshop

Castello Ceconi Wedding Photography Training Workshop in Northern Italy

Italian Castle wedding photography training at Castello Ceconi in Northern Italy : Probably the best training course I have ever had the pleasure to run, this can be the only way to describe an action packed week in April at the amazing and beautiful Castello Ceconi. With picturesque surroundings it really was a fairytale location for our training week.

Castello Ceconi Italy wedding photography training | Italian wedding photography

The castle, nestled deep in the foothills of the Dolomites is owned by world renowned album manufacturers Graphistudio who produce a vast number of wedding albums for me, they have their office and factory a short forty minutes drive away so the location was perfect. It was as their guests that we found ourselves flying into Venice on an April Monday morning to start the workshop. ( www.graphistudio.com )

Our models for the week were Zach and Lauren who along with myself, Martin from Graphistudio’s UK office and my assistant Sophie would be staying in the castle whilst the trainees were to sleep in a nearby hotel. An action packed week lay ahead and after quickly checking into their hotel we drove the trainees upto to the Castle for welcome drinks and our first evening meal.

Our hearty Italian meals were prepared by a local family of caterers who used locally sourced products and recipes to give an authentic taste of Northern Italy and allowing us all to immerse ourselves in the surroundings and ambience ahead of our first full day of training at the Castle.

Our second day began with a short presentation from myself exploring the uses of off camera flash and how I use simple speed light techniques to create my wedding photographs. It was a quick bit of classroom work before we headed out into the stunning grounds with our bride and groom. With our models ready we were itching to head outdoors into the sunshine to make use of the amazing backdrops and create the first of our photographs using flash on and off camera as well as natural light. It is always beneficial to know what kind of lighting best suits each photography situation, so I like to best prepare my trainees before we jump into shooting.

Wednesday continued the theme of wedding photography and following a fact filled and informative presentation from Martin of Graphistudio about increasing sales and album design. Our morning shooting was all indoors using natural light, video light and flash. During my last visit to Graphistudio back in october staff had talked about a stunning potential location nearby and so after lunch we made a short drive down to the amazing canyons and mountain river. The white rock and snow melt river afforded some amazing images – thank you Chiara and Francesco!

During the evening the castle is incredibly well lit and for Wednesday evening we had arranged for the lights to be switched off allowing us an opportunity for an evening of star photography away from the light pollution of big towns and cities. A late night saw the trainees back at their hotel just before midnight.

Castello Ceconi Italy wedding photography training | Italian wedding photography

Thursday morning involved a trip to Graphistudio’s album factory down in the valley, the large factory is capable of producing several hundred weddings albums per day, all hand made and finished before being sent to photographers worldwide. Our tour of the factory was hosted by Martin and Francesca and we were able to view the latest products, paper types and special album prototypes first hand as well as seeing the meticulous care and attention to detail that goes into every wedding album.

The afternoon back at the castle was focused on groom preparation and bridal boudoir, with Sophie leading a Boudoir group with model Lauren, I worked with a small group on groom preparation images with Zach. Our evening involved shooting outdoors with Zach and Lauren, again dressed as bride and groom as I demonstrated and taught how I work to create my after dark wedding photographs.

Castello Ceconi Italy wedding photography training | Italian wedding photography

Friday dawned with clouds for the first time all week, an early pick up for the trainees allowed time to host a mock pre-wedding shoot before we wrapped up and made our way back to Venice, some to fly home and others were staying on for the weekend. It was the perfect ending to a lovely week, and everyone was sad to leave.

I must finish with a massive thank you to everyone who attended the workshop, models and trainees, Graphistudio for their hospitality, very kind use of the Castle and factory visit and to Martin from the UK office who as well as having the keys to the castle, ensured we didn’t run out of beer and worked just as many hours if not more than myself.

Next years workshop dates have been confirmed for May 1-5. Full details to follow…

The Societies Photographer of the Year 2015 – Winner!

Award-winning-wedding-photographer

The Societies Photographer of the Year 2015 – Winner!

In late January I attended The Societies of Photographers annual awards evening in London. The Societies is an international and well respected photography organisation with several thousand members from around the world. I’d been nominated in two categories, Landscape and Wildlife.

Landscape was the first of the two to be announced and although I did’t win I did come second with my Lake District Photograph from near Buttermere. All my hopes were now pinned on Wildlife, I was overjoyed to be placed as the winner of the Wildlife category with my underwater image of a diving Kingfisher.

As the night continued and the further categories were announced the awards reached the climax with the overall photographers of the year awards for third to first place . I’d genuinely never imagined I stood a chance of being placed and so it was with complete shock that out of over 10,000 images mine was judged as the overall winner of the annual competition.

Its easy to call yourself an award winning photographer, but to be honest this award trumps all others, so its with head held high I can sign off this post as UK Photographer of the Year!

Bagden Hall Wedding Photography | Donald and Stephanie’s Wedding photographs

Donald and Stephanie were married in a civil wedding ceremony at Bagden Hall early Spring. We began our day with photographs of bridal preparations in the bridal suite with Stephanie and her bridesmaids before catching up with Donald for photographs before the wedding ceremony which took place in the restaurant.

Although cold the weather thankfully played ball and we were able to venture outside for some family photographs including the large group from a slightly different angle and method to usual (more of that in another blog to come). Soft ground inevitably meant sticking to the paths and walkways, certainly easier than rescuing a bride whose heels are stuck in the lawn. Bagged Hall’s Folly is a must use location for wedding photographs, the small bride, old building and imposing trees make for a stunning backdrop.

The following images include many of those we played during our evening reception slideshow (included with all our wedding album packages).

Rossington Hall Wedding Photography : John and Helen’s Wedding at Rossington Hall : Rossington Hall Wedding photographers

Rossington Hall Wedding Photography : John and Helen’s Wedding at Rossington Hall : Rossington Hall Wedding photographers

John and Helen were married earlier this month at Rossington Hall on the outskirts of Doncaster. Although quite mild for early December the country was in the grips of storm Desmond which was wreaking havoc with strong winds and heavy rain. Thankfully we avoided the heavy rain and just had the strong winds to contend with.

Our day began as we joined Helen at Rossington Hall for bridal preparation photographs before John and his best men arrived shortly before the civil wedding ceremony.  John and Helen had extended their drinks reception and wanted to keep the whole day low key so with the minimum number of formal photo requests we were able to spend a long time inside with the guests photographing the drinks reception before we braved the winds and headed outside to use some of the grounds around Rossington Hall.

The lower gardens were thankfully sheltered from the worst of the winds and so we made our way down there for some quick wedding photographs of the bride and groom before we re-joined the guests before wedding breakfast.

Later in the evening with the first dance complete and band playing we snook out for some late night after dark wedding photographs using Rossington Hall’s brightly lit exterior as a backdrop to wedding photographs that will make a stunning end to their storybook wedding album.

The photographs below include many of those we played during the evening reception on our large screen, the slideshow is included with all of our wedding photography packages. For more details click here

Graphistudio wedding albums – Italian Storybook wedding albums

For the last eight years we have proudly supplied Italian Storybooks from album manufacturer Graphistudio, a couple of weeks ago, I was  invited to visit their factory around an hour north of Venice  to view the album production process and experience first hand, the care and craftsmanship that goes into producing each and every wedding album.

The photographs and comments below read more like an advertisement for Graphistudio, but hopefully they convey my own amazement in what I saw and learnt during the visit. I receive no financial incentive, discount or otherwise from Graphistudio, I simply love their product and am proud to offer the albums to my bride and grooms.

Italian Storybook wedding albums

I was fortunate enough to view one of my own albums in production. The album of Andy and Sarah’s Allerton Castle wedding is seen here in the covering area. The Crystal acrylic cover is initially produced in an off limits sterile dust free environment before being moved back to the covers area for bonding.

Graphistudio wedding albums. Italian Storybooks.

The printing room features an array of printers from the traditional silver halide photographic printers  to the latest and next generation Canon Dreamlab producing HD prints. The Attention to detail is incredible, Graphistudio pride themselves on the print quality of their albums and to ensure consistency and accuracy, printers are switched off, emptied of fluids and re-calibrated every thirty minutes. Although a massive cost in terms of time and money it’s this kind of attention to detail that sets apart a Graphistudio album from the competition.

Album covers. Each album is handmade and the album covers are bespoke to each and every book.
Graphistudio wedding albums. Italian Storybooks.

Every component of the wedding album is bespoke and made for that one book, there are no off the shelf parts or pre-made stock waiting to be used. During production each album is measured with a micrometer and where a wooden album box is being produced, these details are fed into the plotter’s computer that will then custom cut each box to give that vacuum packed hand in glove feel.

Graphistudio wedding albums. Handmade wedding albums

Each wedding album takes several weeks to be produced, undergoing various production processes, whilst some companies offer a one week turnaround on their wedding albums the Storybooks produced here undergo a drying out process and stringent quality control checks to ensure they meet with the Graphistudio’s high standards. The Factory can presently handle 2500 albums per week!

Not the most exciting of photographs, but the first pallet contains 22 wedding albums ready to ship to the US. Upto 500 albums per day leave the factory to be sent to photographers in Europe and the US.

Albums vist the quality control department more than ten times during the production process. At this point the album is being checked for printing and also that it corresponds with the photographers submitted sequence for page layouts.

Carlton Towers Wedding Photography | Lan and Hao’s Carlton Towers Wedding Photographs

Carlton Towers Wedding Photography | Lan and Hao’s Carlton Towers Wedding Photographs

Following on from their recent pre-wedding photo shoot in York, Lan and Hao were married recently in an intimate  civil wedding ceremony at Carlton Towers near Snaith, East Yorkshire.

We joined Lan in the tower bridal suite for the wedding preparation photographs including photographs of Lan’s stunning dresses and several pairs of wedding shoes. We then joined Hao and his bestman as they finished off their wedding day preparations ahead of the civil ceremony.

During the wedding ceremony the door opened for an to enter, she had decided to walk down the aisle alone and so in an unplanned but amazing touching move, Hao walked towards her and they met half way before walking down the rest of the way together to begin their civil wedding ceremony.

Following the ceremony we were able to make use of the great weather and the grounds of Carlton Towers for both formal and informal wedding photographs before Lan and Hao were whisked away by horse and carriage for a short ride and time alone ahead of the wedding breakfast and speeches.

The evening ended with a firework display just after 7PM and allowed us the opportunity for a number of after dark wedding photographs as land wore her third dress of the day.

Woodlands Wedding Photography : Nicola and Martins Wedding Photos : Woodlands Hotel wedding photographers

Nicola and Martin were married recently in a civil wedding ceremony at Woodlands Hotel near Leeds. The weather lived unto forecast and certainly exceed expectations with clear blue skies and warm temperatures allowing plenty of outdoor photography opportunities around the grounds of the Woodlands.

Our wedding day began with Nicola’s bridal preparations in the Woodlands bridal suite before we joined Martin and his best man who arrived by Rolls Royce Phantom. Nicola was  given her away by her grandmother and it was an emotionally charged couple of minutes in the bridal suite when Gran saw Nicola for the first time in her wedding dress.

Following the wedding ceremony, drinks were served outside on the terrace allowing us to quickly complete the list of wedding group photographs before taking Nicola and Martin down onto the lower lawn for some wedding photographs of themselves before they rejoined the wedding guests enjoying the warm weather and bright sunshine.

As with all wedding packages, during the evening we played a large screen slideshow featuring a number of edited wedding photographs including many of these below.  For more details of wedding photography packages for Woodlands and other wedding Wedding venues please click here. 

The day after their wedding Martin Posted on my Facebook page ” Chris you did an amazing job at our wedding yesterday, you’re an absolute professional. The photos on the screen during the evening were amazing and I can’t wait to see them all. Thank you.” With Nicola adding “I would like to echo what Martin said, a true professional. The best investment we made on our wedding day by far. Amazing, you really have a way with people. Literally cannot wait to see the pics. Thanks again”

Wedding details : Nicola had spent a lot of time planning the details for the wedding day and certainly provided us with a lot to photograph! The above wedding photographs are just a small selection of the details in the marquee at Woodlands.

The only downside to clear blue skies on a wedding day is the lack of sunset, although there is often a slight tinge you don’t get the big powerful skies, still a slight tinge was enough to take Nicola and Martin back outside of the Woodlands for a series of sunset wedding photographs.
