Frogmill Inn | Katie and Laurie | Engagement Photography

I do believe there are signs of spring starting to creep into each day, which means we are getting closer to summer sun and wedding season!  Today I was lucky enough to head over to the beautiful, newly renovated Frogmill Inn just outside of Cheltenham. I will be photographing a wedding there in May and I can’t wait.

I met  with Katie and Laury to talk about their wedding photography and how we can make their pictures special for the day.

It is always a good idea to meet with your wedding photographer before your date so you can just have a moment to sit down, have a beer (or gin or whatever your tonic is!) and just talk. No pressure and no where else to be. You can also go for a walk around the venue, discuss where pictures can be made during different times of the time or if the weather isn’t cooperating. The more you can be open about the day and what it could possibly hold (a.k.a the WEATHER) the better it’ll be on the day for picture expectations.

Creating photographs for a wedding that are personal to each couple is very important to me. I want to make sure I understand as a wedding photographer, who you are as a couple; what makes you laugh, smile and jump on each other’s backs! Once I have that information being your wedding photographer is just that much easier!

So, here’s to another wonderful day to come. If you are planning your wedding and still looking for a wedding photographer, I would love to meet you. I may be a Gloucestershire wedding photographer 90% of the time, but I am more than happy to travel to make your wedding day magical.

Happy weekend to you all!

Elmore court wedding autumn

Tamsin and Tom | Elmore Ceremony | Elmore Court Wedding Photographer

With a beautiful autumnal wedding taking place in the hall of Elmore Court; it was just the most beautiful light cascading through those windows that any wedding photographer could ask for.

The guests were seated, Tom and his brothers were waiting nervously at the top (even his brothers were nervous) with the angels looking down on them. AS the music started, I was in place ready to photograph the most beautiful Tamsin come sweeping down the aisle to her best friend Tom.

Bowood Hotel and Spa | March Wedding | Wiltshire Wedding

I met Sam and Vanessa at the Bowood Hotel and Spa wedding open day where I am happy to be a regular wedding photographer. Bowood Hotel offers so many different areas and “feels” to its clients that it makes for a very happy photographer.

Sam was very clear on meeting that he really wanted a documentary approach to the wedding photographs; so minimal staged pictures. This was perfectly well suited to the style of the day and as a documentary wedding photographer, it made my job very easy.

Bowood hotel wedding September

Bowood Hotel Golf & Spa Resort Wedding

We were blessed with a warm September’s day.  On arrival at the AirBnB, I was greeted at the door by Gemma the most beautiful September bride.  It was a flurry of activity getting ready and once everyone was dressed they were all whisked off to the church.

With a  wonderful, touching ceremony and several laughs during the sermon, it was on to the gorgeous grounds of Bowood Hotel Golf & Spa Resort, Wiltshire. As you are welcomed through the grand gates, we couldn’t help but stop and take a few pictures.

Hare & Hounds | Tetbury | Steph and George

It is funny how you can dream and plan your day to perfection but on the day you never know what the elements will throw at you. But the day went from dreary to perfection in every way. The rain threatened. An outdoor ceremony was planned. The phone calls went back and forth on whether to take the ceremony inside or keep it outside, and after sticking to their dream, Steph and George walked down the aisle, outside in the brilliant sunshine!
