It’s about time I shared some of Shaila & Oliver’s Assembly Rooms wedding photos! Roll back to a sunny Friday in September. A day that was neither too hot nor too cold – perfect ‘operating’ temperature for me at least! S&O got in touch at the beginning of the year after finding my details on the Bath Venues website. They both live in Denver Colorado, and during a quick skype call I warmed to them immediately. Oliver grew up in Biddestone, not far from Bath, and as he managed to win the wedding toss they brought a whole host of their American friends over with them.

This week I’d like to share some Priston Watermill wedding photos from Phil & Kate’s outdoor ceremony. Outdoor weddings don’t happen all too often, so it’s great to be able to capture them when the weather is on our side!
It’s been an age since I last blogged any engagement photos. Most of these sessions take place during the spring and summer months. But last November saw me hop on a bus to make a trip across the M4 to meet up with Jennifer and Sam for their London pre wedding shoot . You’ll notice the weather wasn’t exactly on our side – but then I do like a challenge! It was pretty much non stop drizzle for the few hours we were together. In fact one of my cameras LCD even got partly frazzled – aren’t they supposed to be weather sealed!? Lesson learnt.
Last year I was given the opportunity to be Amy & Tim’s Pennard House Wedding photographer. If you haven’t heard of it, Pennard House is a bit of a hidden gem in terms of Somerset wedding venues. Tucked away in some of the most idyllic countryside, this Georgian manor and coach house is set in secluded gardens and surrounded by woodland and meadows. Photography wise, I was spoilt for choice! It also happens to be somewhere close to my heart, just 10 minutes away from the site of Glastonbury festival. In fact this beautiful country house is usually taken over at that time by music industry types and is full of festival memorabilia. There’s also a nod to Glastonbury with it’s own tipi field that guests can hire for accommodation.
