Winter wedding at Hotel du Vin Poole

Last week I had the pleasure of shooting an intimate Winter wedding at the Hotel du Vin in Poole. It’s a boutique hotel set amongst the cobbled streets of Poole, down by the Quayside. It’s full of character, warmth and ideal for the smaller wedding. Melissa and Toby asked me to be a part of their special day and it was an absolute delight. I’m afraid I can’t share any images from the wedding itself as they’re still on honeymoon, but everyone had a great time!

It was also the first opportunity for me to use my newest camera, the Nikon D750, at a wedding. How did it perform? Very well, I have to say. Focusing was spot on and very quick and the metering was really accurate. Handling was surprisingly easy to adapt to from my other cameras, even though the layout’s taken a more consumer-oriented style as opposed to Nikon’s professional ranges. Yes, there were a couple of times I found myself looking for the ISO button on the top plate, but overall I think it’ll do the job admirably. As I said, I can’t share any shots from the wedding itself, but here are a couple of images from the Hotel’s Christmas decorations.
