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…

Tarryn + Jake | Trinity Church & Minsterworth Village Hall, Gloucestershire

April saw our first wedding of 2019 with the lovely Tarryn and Jake. The weather was great for April which meant we could go and explore the woods of Robinswood Hill after the ceremony. Tarryn & Jake were more than happy to go off the beaten track and do some exploring to get some epic shots in the woodland on the hill.

Family and friends enjoyed drinks and partying at the picturesque Minsterworth Hall where they enjoyed the bouncy castle, candy floss and slush puppies! With a hog roast and plenty of fizz flowing it was a great day. Family had flown in from South Africa and the guests were all treated to a dance-marathon from the two best men. A brilliant day was had by all and we think the photos really show how happy the newlyweds are…

Deb + Rob | Cotswold House Hotel, Chipping Campden

We had the pleasure of photographing Deb & Rob's wedding on New Year's Eve. What a great day and fabulous way to send off 2018 in style.

Everyone had a ball, especially Vinnie (the dog) who was the centre of attention in his waistcoat and he even had his own buttonhole!

A wonderful way to start 2019 as Husband & Wife...thanks for letting us be part of your special day. Here are just a few shots from the day...

Laura + Graham | The Bay Tree Hotel, Burford

In December, we photographed the fabulous wedding of Laura & Graham in the small medieval town of Burford on the River Windrush in the Cotswold hills in West Oxfordshire.

It was a chilly December day outside but lovely and toasty inside the Bay Tree Hotel with its roaring fires, whiskey flowing and family & friends in fine form! Here's just a few photos from the wonderful 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.

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.





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.

Justin + Ashley | The Battleaxes, Bristol

The Battleaxes is a beautiful old building located in Wraxall just south of Bristol. It has a commanding presence over the south Bristol countryside and was a beautiful wedding location for Bristol lads Justin and Ashley. These guys know how to throw a party and everything about the day smacked of their personalities. Both guys looked dapper in their Ted Baker suits and the ceremony went like clockwork. Friends are a huge part of A&J's life and they all turned out ready to fill the dance floor and rock it into the wee small hours. Jayne - Justin's 'best woman' carried off her speech with aplomb and even managed to get Christopher Biggins to say a few words by Facetime! From a Wedding Photographers point of view, the month of December and low light can sometimes be difficult, but the glow of candles, twinkling lights on the Christmas Tree and warm fires all added to the scene and we managed to produce some atmospheric images for the guys that really captured the feeling of warmth. The Battleaxes interior of warm colours, rich mahogany furniture and wonderful antiques all added to scene.  A&J chose a wintery theme for the main hall and there were hints of holly and ivy everywhere, mistletoe hanging from the seating and even a Christmas tree positioned in the bay window where the guys made their wedding vows. Candles glowed on every table and the food was nothing short of spectacular. I also have to mention the cake which was made by Victoria at 'Yumscrum cakes'...amazing! I also managed to try out an idea that I had been thinking about for the guys - a 'Vanity Fair' style group shot. I used my fashion and commercial lighting experience to produce the following image which is composed from 20 separate photos...Congratulations Ashley and Justin!
