I must admit to have been chomping at the bit to blog this one. Laura and Ben’s Battle Axes wedding in Wraxall was my first wedding of the year. But with both of them taking a six week honeymoon, I’ve held off publishing these until their return. Not that I’m jealous in any way whatsoever!

Ross and Evelyn’s Square Club wedding ended up being a particularly smiley day for me. I enjoyed it so much! I first met them both when we hooked up for a colourful Westonbirt Arboretum pre wedding shoot, almost a year to the day. It was great to see them again – and Scruffy! Evelyn works with animals (I’ll let you guess her favourite), and they’re both really cool people to be around. read more
These guys are so friendly and down to earth; you honestly couldn’t hope to meet a nicer couple. I absolutely loved Lydia & Rupert’s laid-back Beeses Tea Garden wedding – not least because Lydia wore wellies for most of the day along with a near permanent grin! They’d also put loads of effort into the lovely little details. 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
