I’d been looking forward Jemma and Ben’s Coombe Lodge Wedding for what seemed like an age. I remember when we first met how excited they both were, and that excitement rubbed off on me! Coombe Lodge is an absolute gem of a venue with a great team behind it. If luck’s on your side, it’s also one of the few wedding venues in Somerset where you can catch the setting sun all the way down to the horizon. You just need to take a short walk into the adjacent field. Timing it perfectly, Jemma & Ben lucked out big time that day. I made sure we milked every last drop of golden sunlight!

It had been almost a year since Emma & Frank’s Dyrham Park pre wedding shoot by the time their wedding day came around – a year! Where did that go? I’d been looking forward to taking their Kingscote Barn wedding photos ever since meeting them. Sometimes you just get a feeling from people and you just ‘know’ it’s going to be a pretty special day, maybe because Emma didn’t stop laughing? But that’s exactly what happened – just an awesome day from start to finish, with plenty of emotion and laughs included! read more
It’s seems it’s been an age since I last blogged a wedding and there’s so much to catch up on. It’s been one heck of a busy summer and with the birth of our baby boy some things have had to take a back seat. read more
Every now and then I get asked to photograph a mid week wedding with a few hours coverage. Whilst most of the weddings I blog are full day affairs, I just wanted to share some lovely photographs from Paul and Maria’s Hotel du Vin wedding in the centre of Bristol back in May. Already well known for it’s fine food, Hotel du Vin is makes for a very relaxed, cosy wedding venue, challenging in parts from a photography standpoint due to it’s low light conditions. After an intimate ceremony with close friends and family we went for a short walk to the Christmas Steps on what was a blustery on/off rainy kind of day. With the weather dictating play I had to get a little creative with some of the more sheltered spots. Top tip: no matter where you decide to get married be generous with the confetti – definitely my favourite images from the day!
There are some brave souls who attempt to wow the crowd with a well choreographed first dance, and then there’s Mike & Kirsten. It was quite obvious that a lot of time and effort went in to putting together their tidy little number to ‘Life’s a Happy Song’, by none other than……The Muppets! I can confidently say that I will never in my lifetime ever see that repeated, and for that I tip my hat and offer you both my sincere thanks! :) read more
