We recently did a pre wedding shoot in Sefton Park which is a magnificent 235 acre park south of Liverpool.

The pre wedding shoot was for Clare & Paul who are getting married at the fabulous Rowton Hall in Chester in August.

One of the reasons they chose Sefton Park as the venue for this shoot was due to it being the place that Paul proposed. While we were there we were able to enjoy the Arab Arts Festival, this festival is in its 14th year and showcases the richness of Arab culture through visual art, music, dance, film & theatre to name but a few. We had a beautiful sunny day for the shoot and this festival added to the atmosphere of the day.

Besides the sentimental attachment to the park, it is a perfect venue for a shoot due to the rich colours of the trees & plants. The greens & yellows gave a wonderful backdrop, Clare & Paul were so relaxed and naturally happy together it made it so easy for us to photograph them.
We really enjoyed our day with them and have discovered that Paul and myself share a love of Lucha libre. Officially translated means “free wrestling” but is basically professional wrestling that has originated from Mexico and other Spanish speaking countries and is generally characterised by colourful masks and “high-flying” manoeuvres. We were very keen to incorporate this love within the shoot, Clare didn’t have the same enthusiasm but I have high hopes for the wedding!

I used my Olympus OM-D for this shoot after being a Nikon Pro User for so many years. While I was changing lenses it fell in to the lake, after a mild panic and a good wipe dry I put it back on and it worked perfectly. This probably isn’t OIympus recommended trouble-shooting but it worked for me, watch this space for more articles on my Olympus experiences.
