Godwick Great Barn Wedding – Kate and Ben

Godwick Hall is a new venue for me, but with a familiar wedding coordinator - Miranda is a former client whose wedding I photographed a few years ago now.  Thanks for putting Kate and Ben in touch ! I began with Kate and the girls who were getting ready in the fantastic accommodation at Godwick Hall, just a stones throw from the barn itself.  It was then over to the barn to catch the guests arr ...

Sophie and Ben’s Gaynes Park Wedding

Bookings don't come much more last minute than this one ... Sophie and Ben contacted me on Sunday evening, to work at their wedding on the Tuesday.  Their original photographer had been hurt in an accident and of course I was happy to help.  After arriving with the (very relieved) girls for a few preparation photos it was off to Writtle parish church for their ceremony, and then on to Gaynes Park ...

Chrissie and Michael’s Pembroke College Wedding

To say Saturday's Cambridge wedding was a little wet, would be like saying the Sahara was a little dry ... but Pembroke College is a beautiful place inside and out so Chrissie and Michael still had a great day and not one the guests are likely to forget ! ...

Charlotte and Craig’s Wedding at Maison Talbooth

Another summer weather report - mostly raining, but with fantastic evening sunshine.  My first time covering a full day wedding at Maison Talbooth, I've shot weddings where they held the ceremony there, but then moved on to Le Talbooth for the reception.  Charlotte and Craig wanted a very relaxed intimate wedding and the house was perfect for it.  After the ceremony there was afternoon tea in the ...

Gemma and James at Nonsuch Mansion

Rain the forecast said, as per usual ... but somehow it passed either side of Nonsuch Mansion for the wedding of Gemma and James.  We hadn't met before the day, but while we had wandered away for some couple shots Gemma said they had booked me for more fun wedding photos, and their wedding certainly provided plenty of that.  Nerves played a part early in the day which showed up in a few small ways ...

Helen and Martin’s Folly Farm Wedding

Just another day down on the farm - Folly Farm near Bristol to be precise, a really lovely relaxed venue for a wedding with great views out over the rolling countryside of the Chew Valley.  Helen and Martin held their whole wedding there, with their ceremony in the Oak Room and their reception held inside a Tentipi setup in the courtyard. We spent the day dodging the summer showers, but they didn' ...

Simran and Peter’s Wedding at The Abbey House

I think I'll always remember Simran as 'that running bride' ... most girls have a morbid fear of letting their dress near the smallest bit of dirt or dampness - not Simran.  We were behind schedule due to someone being 30 minutes late at the church so we had just 20 minutes to do some couple shots in the beautiful gardens of the Abbey House in Malmesbury.  Simran knew where she wanted to go and sh ...

Elms Barn Wedding – Jessica and Philip

Just half an hour from home last Saturday for Jessica and Philip's Elms Barn wedding.  After the girls preparations in the bridal suite at the Elms I hopped on their vintage routemaster with the bridesmaids for the quick hop over to the bright and airy St. Andrews in the grounds of Raveningham Hall. After the service it was back on the bus to the Elms.  Actually it was on the bus, then off the ...
