Ashley & Tristan – Pre Wedding Shoot. Guildford & Wokingham

I met Ashley & Tristan at Surrey Uni in Guildford whilst making my second attempt to stumble and enjoy the dried fruits of student nursing. It still dawns on me from time to time, how it proved possible to qualify through no more academic effort than mastering the true art of ‘Copy & Paste’ on such sites as Amazon book reviews, stuffing out a second rate essay. Anyhow I did qualify and my hands have been worn down over just a few years service but only with thanks to the friends I found along the way (and Jane Leng).

Ashley & Tristan have probably been ‘getting’ married or wedding-bound over the previous couple of years, their one of ‘those couples’ you’ve warmly known with ever-so-slight envy stay steady and grow whilst yours and many others have come to pass.  So it happened to be only a matter of time till the little comet of engagement struck upon a star with Ash & Tristan.

I met Ashley in Guildford hospital accommodation we still call ‘cell blocks’ during our inauguration at the Royal Surrey as students. Student Nursing is not an easy slog, placements are many and the rewards can be few, one guarantee however is despite how ridiculously far-out the Uni’ would find your placements, (Milford) you’d be guaranteed to meet friends who could get you there and be there at the end. One evening during our brief time as cell block detainees, we both sat eating noodles in our single socket room and peered out of a single glazed’ across the tree line to Ted’s. We could see ‘Ted Adams student accom’ and had heard of this rich land of Milk & Honey from nurses who had gone before us. The stories of expendable washing machines & free laundry, subsidized living and many, many girls living together would eventually lead us to living together from then on for four years in Guildford and then Woking. This journey with Ash & Tristan, however short four years might seem, meant an awful lot, and although we lacked a journey of Moses’ proportion, I can safely say Ash & Tristan have and will find a life together in a land of plenty.

Its apparently privileged information to know that outside of a wedding photographers very closed forum you should only offer to ‘gift’ wedding photography to a close friend that covers one of, if not all three of the ‘CPP’. I already know that Ash has seen me do all three of ‘CPP’ during university, she’s probably seen me do more of both ‘P’s’ but would probably have seen me ‘C’ on occasion. I knew even without CPP that I’d be delighted to capture their wedding in Kent as I am for all the weddings next year, they’ll be plenty of friends there and plenty of ‘CPP’ in any order, but hopefully more of the C’ing, with probability of the two P’s occuring after the ceremony, hopefully.

Our Pre Wedding shoot occurred at Winkworth Arboretum near Godalming, Surrey. We’d enjoyed a few home brew’s the previous night in Wokingham which only helped to saturate appreciation of the glorious autumn sun as we passed along a location which in itself makes worth the National Trust membership. I’d spoken to a couple of brides-to-be the previous day of feeling comfortable having a picture taken, its not easy and for most couples its not natural. The proof, as always is not in the words but in the pictures, you can’t ‘Photoshop’ emotion, but you can be there to capture ‘little comets’. Its my best set of pictures yet and I hope you like them.

    Wei - Cours de Photographie - Your pictures have something that reminds me the work of jasmine Star, natural and simple. There are different retouching from picture to picture which can be strange, but and that serie it’s well done 🙂ReplyCancel
