Our wedding essentials training days are one of our most popular events of the year, always selling out.

This event is held at a rural Victorian hotel set in 10 acres of woodlands and landscaped gardens – a well known wedding choice for many couples, with lots of challenges and exciting features.

We have a bride and groom,and will fully dissect a full wedding day meaning this is ideal for those breaking into wedding photography or in their first few years as it’s all about composition as well as structuring the big day, with stacks of very practical tips being revealed! Amongst other things, all the following will be covered-

  • Bride Getting Ready
  • Arrival of Groom
  • Arrival of Bride
  • The Service
  • Group Shots
  • Romantic Shots
  • The Wedding Breakfast
  • Cutting the Cake

You will be shown how to choose the right location for the perfect shot and find the best lighting!

Make sure that your bring your camera as it will be your notebook as this is a very hands-on day, with Kevin Pengelly, a renowned Master Craftsman and Chairman of The Guild of Photographers Judging Panel.

So our lovely couple, and an incredible trainer as well as VERY limited places to ensure everyone gets as much as possible from this intensive day, makes this great value at £225 Guild Members –£275 for non-members). Even lunch and refreshments throughout the day are included!

A great idea could be to book this in conjunction with the Business of Wedding Photography Course the day after with Steve Thirsk. If you wish to do so, there is a special 2 day package rate of £325 for Guild members, or £375 for non-members (the latter including a FREE 12 months Guild membership) for both courses.

Rooms at The Upper House, Barlaston are available, should you wish to stay over please contact The Upper House, Barlaston on 01782 373790
