Dode Church Wedding Photography Packages from £450 with all edited images on disc. We recently had the chance to Photograph a Wedding at Dode Church the Lost Village of Dode near Vigo in the heart of the Kent countryside.
Dode church itself is over 900 years old and forms a very atmospheric setting for small wedding ceremonies in Kent, while the surrounding fields and land make a really beautiful backdrop for some lovely wedding photos. This is just a small selection of the photographs we took during the ceremony and afterwards in the grounds.
The inside of the chapel certainly harks back to the past with straw and herbs covering the floor and sheepskins on the pews. The lighting inside is very low with little natural light coming in apart from a couple of slit windows high up in the wall and from the entrance doorway. The lighting is supplemented from flaming gas torches on either side of the old altar area and candles! Wedding photography here without the use of flash requires a steady hand, low shutter speeds, fast lenses in the range of f1.4 to f2.8 and really high ISO settings.
