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 t ...

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 wa ...

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 ...

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 th ...

Somerleyton Hall Wedding Photography – Bryony and Richard

Somerleyton Hall Wedding Photographer Last weekend brought a welcome drop in temperature from the previous scorcher and it was another local Suffolk wedding for me at the beautiful Somerleyton Hall.  The girls were getting ready in the honeymoon lodge at Fritton Lake, a lovely spot hidden in the trees.    It was then off to the hall to await Bryony's arrive for their ceremony in Ballroom.  S ...

St Johns College Wedding Photographer – Sonali and Imran’s Wedding

The next day was sunshine and showers again a little closer to home in Cambridge. Sophie and Imran were married at the magnificent St. Johns College chapel and then walked through the backs to Nevilles's Court in Trinity College.  After drinks and canapes accompanied by the Gents of St John's it was off to Anstey Hall for their reception.  In the evening Imran's brother Arjun sang their first ...

Wasing Park Wedding Photography – Louise and Craig’s Wedding

Rain threatened to stop play on Saturday in Berkshire, but we dodged through the showers to end up with great weather all day.  Louise and Craig held their wedding at Wasing Park, first in St. Nicholas' church on site and then into the Castle barn for their reception and dancing.
