I met Matthew at a wedding I shot last year at the Gower in South Wales, and we hit it off immediately. He was the bride and groom’s magician for the day, and his stuff blew my mind. Seriously! He doesn’t do the usual card tricks, but he amped it up a level with some amazing stunts featuring his neck and an industrial stapler. I’ll leave that to your imagination, but needless to say, he had everyone at the wedding wincing, but cheering by the end of it.

Meg and Matt here, are two of the sweetest, kindest people I’ve ever had the pleasure to spend the day with. I shot this yesterday for them at the Miskin Manor, Cardiff – one of my favourite places to shoot wedding photography. It rained all day. I mean, hammered down – and then, as dinner finished, the sun peeked out and filled the evening with beautiful warmth and light. I lay in the grass and it lit up the ground beautifully, bouncing off the wet blades and into my lens.

I love to share more on my Facebook page as I’ve found it’s a cooler way to chat to people than a just blog, so feel free to drop by and say hi – www.facebook.com/nickmurrayphotographic

The image below was created by shooting through a prism. My man, Sam Hurd largely introduced the photography world to this concept and it’s the simplest concept ever, that can produce some really cool results. It’s essentially the same image as above, but by placing the glass halfway down the lens, it offers a complete different feel and look.

As for the ripped trousers – I got attacked by a stationary wedding car. Another pair destined for the bin. I must go through more trousers than SD cards.
