Angie + Patrick | Thornbury Castle, Gloucestershire

Our penultimate wedding of 2018 at Thornbury Castle was in late September when we had the pleasure of meeting Angie and Patrick and their family from New York. The weather was incredible and the mood of the day was as warm as the weather! It meant we got some really great ‘lens flare’ shots and captured the low sun that we get in the UK in the Autumn and Winter. We really enjoyed meeting everyone and the bride and groom were great fun and up for exploring the wonderful ruins and secret spots this great venue has! Enjoy some highlights from the day.





Michelle + Sean | Thornbury Castle, Gloucestershire

We are very lucky to have several chances a year to photograph weddings at Thornbury Castle.  It's such a romantic setting and there are lots of areas to go off the beaten track and explore.  Michelle and Sean had flown in from the USA and brought 70 of their friends and family with them!  They wanted something more natural and fun than the usual staged shots and were up for something different which makes our job even more enjoyable.  What a fabulous couple and their family and friends were a great laugh.  Here is a selection from the day...

Kirstie + James | Royal Crescent Hotel & Prior Park, Bath

What a day!  Flaming June lived up to its expectations as we embarked on a day to remember starting at Royal Crescent Hotel in Bath feeling like we'd just stepped into a Jane Austen novel.

The wedding ceremony took place in the beautiful walled garden and the bride looked incredible!  The groom didn't look too bad either!  Afterwards, we headed to Prior Park College for a very special blessing in the chapel.  Only former pupils have the honour of using this stunning location and so it was a great chance to do some very special shots.  A marquee in the grounds was the setting for the wedding breakfast, with hundreds of flowers hanging from the ceiling and with the backdrop of the Prior Park Palladian Bridge, it really was an unforgettable day.  We hope you enjoy just a few of the highlights...

Fiona + Haonan | Thornbury Castle, Gloucestershire

What a pleasure it was to photograph Fiona & Haonan and their wonderful family and friends in the magnificent surroundings of Thornbury Castle. King Henry VIII himself chose this castle to spend his honeymoon with Anne Boleyn. The traditions of the building and the history made for a very special day. Fiona wore a white wedding gown followed by a traditional Asian gown which made for some fabulous photos.

Alex + Elizabeth | Elopement, The Cotswolds

Another Cotswold Wedding shoot, this time with Alex and Elizabeth. These guys love the countryside and the woods where they live near Stroud. Sunshine and meadows were the backdrop for a low key, natural light wedding shoot. We shot this wedding in Cranham near Stroud in Gloucestershire, Alex was brought up in Cranham and loves the countryside around there which is typical of the Cotswolds. As a photographer I'm naturally drawn to epic locations especially the great outdoors. The Cotswolds lends itself to wedding photography as the light has a character all of its own  - golden and hazy in the summer and low golden red in the autumn and winter...

Mark + Laura | The Matara Centre, The Cotswolds

Crazy kids get wed! Think of the perfect landlords and Mark and Laura are exactly that! They run the Tollgate Inn in Bath and as such they are very much 'people persons'. Their wedding at the Matara Centre in the Cotswolds reflected this and was one of the most relaxed, devil-may-care weddings that I have ever attended. Absolutely lovely people doing it their way!
