5 Questions: Pete Denness Photography

One of our recommended suppliers, Pete Denness, has become a firm favourite with our newly engaged couples seeking a photographer to capture their special day. With Pete's ability to capture all aspects of the wedding from the moment a groom sees his bride for the first time, to whisking the newly-weds away for a quiet moment in our beautiful grounds, Pete is there at every stage to shoot those unique moments which turn in to memories to cherish. Pete is one photographer who will stay until the party finishes and has become a good friend and supporter to our team at the Granary Estates.

We recently caught up with Pete to find out more about what it is to be a wedding photographer and how he feels about working at our venue...

1. What's your favourite thing about working at The Granary Estates? (Apart from working with The GG's of course...)

I love working at The Granary Estates as there are so many great spots for photos! The grounds always look immaculate and in the Summer there are some beautiful cornfields just behind the Granary Cottage.

2. What is the best part of your job?

The best part of my job is getting to meet new people and see them being happy.

3. Do you have any 'stand out moments' whilst working at The Granary Barns?

One wedding that really stands out this year was Justin and Toni's. With their familys being Chinese and German the wedding involved some really interesting traditions. These included a tea ceremony, a log cutting with a giant saw and the bride being kidnapped by the mask wearing groomsmen!

A less fortunate memory was of me falling backwards down a 5ft nettle filled ditch. Fortunately the couple had their backs to me...

4. If you could give couples getting married one piece of advice, from the point of view of a wedding photographer, what would it be?

Some of the best natural shots I take are toward the end of the night when everyone is up dancing. Check what time your photographer will stay until if you don't want to miss out.

5.       Give us 3 words to describe working at The Granary Estates…
