I’ve been waiting a long time to shoot some Thornbury Castle wedding photography, and I finally got my chance last month courtesy of Johnny & Rob. These two fine chaps (and their cohort of best people) met on a mountain almost 10 years ago and have never looked back. Coincidentally I hiked the same mountain – Kilimanjaro – just the year before!

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
I had a smile on my face for much of the time whilst editing these images, it was such a pleasure working my way through them and reliving Emma & Alasdair’s wedding day. They’d picked two brilliant, contrasting venues for their wedding at Arnos Vale & The Paintworks, just a few minutes walk from each other, and the spring sunshine cast a beautiful light across much of the day – we were even lucky enough to catch an unexpected sunset! read more
Ever since shooting Neil & Hope’s engagement photos around Clifton I’d been looking forward to their Merchants Hall wedding. As expected, it turned out to be an amazing day filled with fun and laughter. Ensuring their guests had a great time was a top priority, and they’d also wanted to give their wedding a vintage feel. So everybody made a fantastic collective effort on the day to arrive in 1930’s / art deco dress. There was so much going on throughout the day, plenty to keep me on my toes! There were skittles, crazy golf, a novelty bake off (the roast turkey cake deservedly won by the way), ceilidh, marrioke, and lots of bubbles! read more
