Advice about your wedding photographs at St Oswald’s Church 

Firstly it is a very large church, so be very mindful that if your congregation is small, your ushers are best advised to direct people to sit as near to the front as possible. This is so any photographs that show the bride, groom and wedding party does not look sparse.

During the summer, strong sunlight dominates the front of the church, so particular care needs to be given to any formal bride/groom shots, or group shots. The strong sunshine will cast severe shadows on faces, so it is imperative that either fill flash is used, or reflectors. A quality wedding photographer will understand this!

The church does not permit the use of flash indoors, so make sure your photographer has a quality camera with sufficient ISO to allow for shooting in low light conditions. St Oswald’s Church, is not very well lit, with most of the light coming from burning candles. Poor quality cameras will be unable to cope and will cause very grainy (noisy) images that are not everyone’s cup of tea!

The church is not in favour of confetti being used within the grounds.

I absolutely love the main entrance to this church – the door is huge…

If you don’t book me, I hope you have a fab wedding at St Oswald’s Church.
