I waited years and years for a chance to take Fermenting Cellar wedding photos and when A+C told me they were getting married in the Fermenting Cellar, I jumped with joy! Not only was the ceremony and reception ultra romantic with a warm, candle light vibe, but even the getting ready photos were emotional and moment-driven. If I could give couples any single piece of advice, it would be to do what A+C did: make time to hang out with your friends and wedding party on your wedding day. Chill and have a glass of wine, some beer or go through photos together. Take the time to be present with each other – that’s what the day is all about!
I hope you enjoy these Fermenting Cellar wedding photos as much as we enjoyed taking them!
Tips for Fermenting Cellar wedding photos
- There are typically options for uplighting available when you book The Fermenting Cellar; those options are often warm (yellow/orange) or cool (purple/blue). This is why when you search “Fermenting Cellar wedding photos” you may see two very different vibes of photos. I always think warm is better than cool for a few reasons; firstly because it gives that candle lit vibe and second because it’s much more flattering for skin tones
- Use light to decorate in addition to the uplighting. The stringlight backdrop as a part of the ceremony is perfect! Light is sometimes even more important than other decor elements, like flowers.
- Even with uplighting and decorative lights, it’s still an exceptionally dark venue. This means that you should be choosing a wedding photographer who is well versed in artificial lighting if you want to have amazing Fermenting Cellar wedding photos. A lot of photographers are ‘natural light photographers’ which means at best they put a flash on their camera and try to bounce it off the ceiling. This won’t work in the Fermenting Cellar, though – off-camera lighting is ideal. Make sure to ask to see full galleries of similar venues (doesn’t have to be the same one) when hiring a wedding photographer!
