The Roman Baths are quite possibly one of the most romantic places I’ve ever photographed a wedding. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph here before, and no matter the weather, the reflections from the pool and high stone walls always ensure that this place emanates a special quality of light. This time, I was fortunate enough to have been asked by Jason & Melanie to capture their sunrise wedding – and what a sunrise we had! The empty streets of Bath were eerily beautiful so early in the morning, and the golden light only enhanced the magical feel of the venue when the guests began arriving at 8am. The Baths themselves are a very quiet and peaceful place before they open up to the public.
I’d been waiting patiently to arrange a meet up for Nicola and Adam’s pre wedding shoot at Matara. We’ve had so much great weather recently but what I’d really been eager for was a cloudless sunset, and those kind of evenings have been few and far between here in the South West, at least on days which were mutually convenient for us all to get together. Call me picky, but having done a little recce a few weeks beforehand, I could see that a sunset with clear skies was going to work really well here at this time of year. Thankfully, when it came to our last minute trip to the Cotswolds, we struck gold! read more
I met Hope completely by chance back in December whilst out on an errand to buy some Christmas cards. I cheekily introduced myself having overheard her discussing wedding plans with a friend and I’m very pleased and grateful to say that she booked! Fast forward to May and I arranged to meet up with Hope and fiance Neil for their Clifton pre wedding shoot at the splendid Merchants Hall on the Promenade, which will be their reception venue in July. It was forecast to be a beautiful sunny day with clear skies so we got together at 9am to make the most of the soft early morning light. As a bonus the bridge would be quieter too. We couldn’t have timed it better on what turned out to be the nicest day of the year so far. read more
It’s not often I get the chance to do any baby photography in Bristol, so meeting up with baby Jack and his proud new mum Charlotte back in February made a nice break from the norm. Jack was only a few weeks old at the time and I always allow a lot of extra time for a baby to settle in order to grab some nice shots. But on this occasion there was no need – he was as good as gold throughout the session. read more
