This is my second wedding as the main photographer. I got a phone call on Monday asking if I would be available to cover a registry office wedding on the Thursday. Having never attended a registry office wedding, I had no idea as to what to expect. Below are some of the images I captured.

Wow! Tough gig. Very well done. These types of weddings terrify me.

I think these are well done, especially for what circumstances you were under. So very different from a "normal" wedding. I think that you did pretty well with the WB considering how yellow the room was. I always fight yellow for some reason.

Thanks for the nice comments.

I feel a couple of them could do with a tad more exposure and white balance adjustment but overall I'm very happy with them.

They're going abroad to majorca (I think its majorca) for the posh ceremony, but were doing the legal bit beforehand . You cant knock them for wanting a professional photographer to make a record of it. It was informal, but it was a great experience for me. I now know what to expect if/when I'm asked to do a wedding at the registry office again.

I must thank Tobiah Tayo for passing the booking along. They had initially wanted him, but he's away on holiday and so he passed them on to me.

I don't know if I learnt anything that is applicable to all registry office weddings. Perhaps the format remains the same - all guests in waiting room while b&g talk with official - then all guests ushered in while b&g are already in room waiting?? It certainly felt more relaxed and the officials had no problem with flash or me walking around during the ceremony. I'm guessing that each register office is different, so just ensure you ask. I also think I'll set a custom White balance next time so I can get a more consistant colour throughout all the images.

With regards to pp.
Exposure
Whitebalance
Fill light if needed
Boost saturation & contrast if needed
Dodge / burn if needed
Crop if needed
Vignette if needed
2 pass Sharpen.

I'll normally spend a few minutes on an image. I know my pp skills could be greatly improved - I'm working on it.
