The Ceremony Through to Group Shots

On Location at a Church, Hotel, Park, Beach and Grunge Setting

Wedding Photography Blueprint


In DVD 5, we are on location again for the ceremony, special portraits and group shots.

In DVD 5 we cover:

  • Bride's Arrival at Church
  • Church Camera Settings
  • The Ceremony
  • Registry Office Weddings
  • Special Portraits - Gardens
  • Special Portraits - Rocks
  • Special Portraits - Grunge
  • Group Shots

Total running time = 1 hour 54 mins

Once again, we head out on location to shoot the couple in various settings similar to those of an actual wedding. In fact, the locations we use in this DVD are the exact settings for a wedding that was to be held later that day.

This helps massively with the tutorials as each ceremony venue is fully kitted out and ready to receive an actual bride and groom.

We first go to a large church in Weymouth which is in one respect, a wonderful venue due to its size but on the other hand, presents its own problems which we cover during our time there.

Then we head back to the registry office setting which offers a completely different set of "rules" and things to look out for when photographing smaller weddings.

Later on, we head out to shoot the special portraits in some lovely local gardens, on the rocky part of a local beach and finally in a cool grunge location during the setting sun.

We finish with a lesson on how best to shoot group shots with emphasis on positioning, lighting and dealing with harsh sunshine and shadows.

All in all, DVD 5 backs up extensively, everything we learned in the classroom in DVD 2 and more in a practical sense.


  • "All going well here. Had a productive first wedding season with 12 weddings all in all and quite a few booked for next year. It's been a very enjoyable learning curve and something I wouldn't have been able to start on without your excellent course! - Clive Nolan"

  • "Just wanted to say thanks. I got the DVD course at the end of last year in preparation for a friends wedding. I gave them the photos last week and they are absolutely thrilled. Definitely could not have done it without your help. The basic camera setting you recommend in the DVD was worth the price on it's own. I didn't get a single badly exposed shot " - Lee Brookes, UK."

  • "Nick, Thank you very much. I purchased your Wedding Blueprint last year. Last Saturday, I did my first wedding. I used a lot of your tips and everything went better than planned. Thank you, your DVD's gave me the confidence I needed to do the job. The photos turned out better than I could of expected. Now all I can think of is, Roll on wedding number two, three,......etc etc. - Mick Lumley, IRELAND "

  • "I am so glad that I got that problem with PayPal sorted. I received the discs a few days later and all I want to say is "Wow, probably the best tutorials I have ever bought". The professionalism of the videos, the way it then cuts to show the result in Photoshop is awesome. You've a great manner and no ego and I can see you really want to get it across to your students. - T.H. Dublin."
