John + Rosie | Thornbury Castle, Gloucestershire

Another gorgeous wedding at Thornbury Castle! We never tire of doing weddings here because there is always a new angle or another secret spot to find for a great photograph. This May, we had the pleasure of photographing John and Rosie’s wedding who had flown in with family and friends from sunny Los Angeles!

It was an absolute pleasure to photograph such a great bunch and the evening was helped along by a Cosmopolitan or two and some amazing fireworks in the grounds! We hope you like some of the shots from a brilliant day…

Nick + Emma | Avon Gorge Hotel, Bristol

November saw the wedding of the lovely Nick & Emma at Avon Gorge Hotel in Bristol. What a venue, what a view! The majestic Clifton Suspension Bridge spanning across the Avon Gorge is a magnificent feat of engineering. Mix that with the gorgeous Avon Gorge Hotel and you have the setting for an epic wedding day with wonderful people and a great atmosphere. The hotel is sumptuous and sophisticated and the interiors made for some fabulous photos. The Bride looked incredible and the Groom was keeping it stylish in a 3 piece Harris Tweed suit. We had a great day (and evening!)….hope you enjoy some shots from the day.


Louisa + Paul | Thornbury Castle, Gloucestershire

Our final wedding of the year at Thornbury Castle was on a bright sunny day in September. A small gathering of family and friends saw Louisa and Paul tie the knot in the beautiful library room. The weather was even warm enough for drinks on the lawn, before a sit down meal in the Baron dining room. Their beautiful daughter was the cutest bridesmaid you’ll ever see! Hope you enjoy some of the highlights of 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...

Chris & Harriet | Elopement, The Cotswolds

'Chemistry' ...It's all about the chemistry and C+H have it in oodles! I love the individual hipster-style that these guys brought to their shoot. The dappled light provided by the woods at Cranham near Cheltenham were also an idyllic place for an elopement...more love in the Cotswolds
