WITH ROB PUGH
In association with Olympus UK, esteemed wedding photographer Rob Pugh recently hosted a wedding photography workshop at the Forbury Hotel, Reading, Invited along were not only photography enthusiasts but also some of Rob’s favoured wedding suppliers in order for the day to play out like an actual wedding as realistically as possible.
Rob tells us that his heart went out to wedding planners as he set about securing the venue, church, flowers, cake and food for the ‘mock wedding’ day, preceded by a presentation on how events would run throughout. “The easy part was finding a bride and groom to model who brought their own dress and suit respectively,” Rob laughs.
Learning very much ‘on the job’, as usual attendees had plenty of the latest Olympus kit to play with, including the newest 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro lens.
There was also a fistful of discount codes offered by suppliers, including Olympus, with pro lab One Vision offering a free print of any image from the day. Photographers were then invited to sample a slice of wedding cake with their tea and coffee at the close – just like real wedding guests!
