The Wedding Venue

By colmar  
Good Afternoon

Sorry for no comments etc and mainly clicks time is against us both with loads fo work and no am not complaining. These two images captured this morning when we met with clients at the Wedding Venue to discuss final arrangements for their forthcoming wedding.... A beautiful country setting so well planned out with everyone well looked after .... V1 the Gazebo where the ceremony will take placenad v2 a floating nesting box, the pond full of Koi , a moorhen was inside but refused to appear for the camera. Out this afternoon at a portrait shoot and then nightshift at Eurotunnel.... so again will play catch up asap

I urge large and for window users f11 and ctrl+ ..... for mac user large and cmd+

Thanks to Tim ( tigertimb ) for the mod on Spring into Summer.

Looks an idyllic place, but I hope the reception will be in slightly larger accommodation than V2! (Super lovenest for an avian honeymoon though).

What a wonderful, luxurious place for nesting! Never seen one like this before. Looks like a superb setting for a wedding. Fingers crossed the weather is kind to the bride and groom, as well as the photographers!

Colin that looks like an ideal setting, and should have a few more flowers for colour on the day, Have to agree that V2 is rather 'posh'!!
Good luck with the portraits this afternoon.

A picture of her mother in law in the nesting box would be great and worth a few bob.

Might be worth mentioning the V1 could use a little straightening (I dont think its a figment of the imagination) its a superb building for a wedding and you should get some great pictures, v2 floating nestbox looks like a place to keep your eye on for activity

Excellent Colin, hope all goes well with the wedding and then as you said, Eurotunnel, wish you all the best. Is Marry accompanying you for this one? Hey, you think you can upload a picture of the portraits later? Smile I think it won't be nice, maybe they don't want you to upload right? Anyhow, regards to all

V1 looks a great place for the wedding ceremony. Don'tknow if my eyes are wonky but are we leaning a little to the left? V2 is a grand nest site - never seen one like it. Hope the weather keeps good for you.

Two great shots. Can imagine V1 looking superb when decorated with flowers. My first thought when viewing V2 was, oh no, it's sinking! Obviously not with it today.

Good luck hope it goes well as a photo shoot. The last time I saw one of those nesting boxes in the middle of a lake it was in the papers and belonged to an MP! Paul.

I got "that sinking feeling" when I saw v2? glad you said what it is! Hope it all goes well. Happy Easter to you both.

Great shot Colin and I imagine this will be a great venue for the ceremony with some diffuse and even light and some great backdrops. Maybe with some portable steps and planning the posts can become a boon rather than a hazard, nicely framing the shots. I shall look forward with interest to seeing the end results if you have their permission to upload a few to EPZ

Setting perfect, photographers carefully selected, all it needs now,(apart from the bridal couple of is for the weather to cooperate. Hopefully you'll be allowed to post something of the occasion, you've certainly whetted our appetite with these two shots Colin!
Rgds., Jim
