CREATIVE APERTURES PHOTOGRAPHY » Award Winning Wedding Photography by Alex James

Wedding Photography

Having solely engaged in wedding photography, I decided to try something a little different.

Fusion is somewhat of a buzz word, that Ive hear banded about in creative circles for some time.

Its basically the mix of cinematic videography fused together with creative photography in the same package.

I had the opportunity to give it a try for the first time and I think that it turned out great.

It was shot at the beautiful Fforest camp in the Welsh countryside, which turned out to be the perfect location for what I was looking for.

I put this little feature together called Film Noir.

For those who may not know what it is, I pulled this description of Film Noir:

“a style or genre of cinematographic film marked by a mood of pessimism, fatalism, and menace. The term was originally applied (by a group of French critics) to American thriller or detective films made in the period 1944–54 and to the work of directors such as Orson Welles, Fritz Lang, and Billy Wilder.”

I’m looking to feature a little more video fusion in my wedding photography work and I think it will add a nice extra dimension for my wedding clients.

Check out the video below and do let me know your thoughts

Xeco & Rochan Get married at SNAP Photography Festival -fforest farm

WOW! I just have to start with that word.

The wedding of Xeco & Ro Chan was incredible,just completely off the chart AWESOME. A year ago we had met at the fantastic SNAP photography festival which took place at the FForest camp in rural West Wales. Whilst there I was privileged to photograph Xeco’s beach proposal to Ro Chan, which was beautiful.

Fast forward a year and the beautiful Spaniards were back for Snap 2016 this time with a suprise up their sleeve. Yup they were going to get married.

Imagine wedding photographers getting married, with over 100 other wedding photographers as guest and uncle Bob’s! Crazy….and it must be some kind of record for the most wedding photographers at a wedding!

Most of the attendeees had no clue what was to happen until the morning of the wedding itself.

Thankfully I was let into the secret beforehand, as Xeco & Ro Chan had asked me to be best man for them, which was such a great great honor.

Anyway I didnt take very many pics due to my official duties but here are a few from the best mans point of view. Hope you enjoy this beautiful Fforest wedding photography.

Well, it’s time for another belated blog post. Slowly I’m working through a backlog of stunning weddings to share with you all.

It was great to spend the day with Matthew & Angharad for their Fonmon Castle Wedding back in the days when the sun shone bright and spirits were high.

The day began with the preparations at the quaint Sutton Mawr Farm. I was met with a laid back and relaxed atmosphere when I arrived, as the families enjoyed the morning, getting ready amongst the wild flowers and butterflies, to the chorus of buzzing bees and bird song.

We then headed off over to Fonmon Castle where the rest of the day’s activities would take place and you could not wish for a better location for a wedding. The day was filled with laughter and fun as the guests let their hair down to help Matthew & Angharad celebrate their special day in style.

I don’t think I’ve laughed so much at some of the mad games that were played that day. I even got roped into a couple myself and you can see a brief cameo appearance in the photographs below.

All in all…… fabulous!

If you’re interested in me to capture your big day, in a natural, no gimmick and fun way, get in touch; I’d love to hear from you.
