weddings  Fireworks at Leeds Castle

I love this time of year. Dawn’s pretty late (which allows me to get on the beach for portrait sessions), there’s great colour in the trees and most of all there are fireworks!

Fireworks must be one of my favourite things to shoot apart from weddings.  And fireworks at weddings must be best of all.But the best fireworks around have to be at Leeds Castle.  There’s something about the whole “castle reflected in a lake plus thousands of pounds of high explosives” that I can’t resist.

This year was no exception.  I braved the cold (actually a balmy 12 degrees), the rain (which pretty much didn’t show up) and the high winds (which made things interesting – the rockets were drifting towards the crowd).  At least it kept the smoke clear.

There was also an awesome display by Alchemy Fire Theatre.  Who, err, burned loads of stuff.  Everybody’s got to have a hobby…

And yes it was a huge amount of fun.  What’s that got to do with wedding photography?  Not a great deal.  But people often ask me if I can shoot fireworks at their wedding.  Yeah, I can shoot fireworks – I love it weddings  Fireworks at Leeds Castle
