It may appear from this blog that I've taken very few photos recently. That's not actually the case, but I don't want to share some of my recent photos until after our wedding next week.
We've decided that in addition to the official wedding photos we'll have some of our own, many of which will be taken before the big day. Of course there'll be none of the people until the day, but there are a surprising number of other wedding-related things that can be photographed in advance. Our focus so far has been on favours, programmes and jewellery, but when my dress and the flowers arrive next week I'll be able to take lots more. There are a couple of advantages of taking pictures prior to the wedding - the first being that I can play with backgrounds that won't be available on the day (our wedding programmes and rings have already been on a couple of walks with us and Dad kindly sent us some wheat for a photograph) and the second being that I can choose what light I want to photograph things in. The forecast for the day is cloudy with a 40% chance of it not raining heavily (as GB puts it) so even if there's no sunshine on the day at least some of the photos will be sunny.
