Bowood Hotel | Wiltshire Wedding Photography | Autumn Wedding

Moving to an entirely new country is daunting. I know because I am Canadian and now living in the UK. At least I moved from one speaking English country to another (for the most part it is similar… I do have my tendency to slip up on words!) But Man Hua took it in her stride. Coming to England to marry and then moving on to the US with her wonderfully new husband was no easy task, but she sure makes it look easy.

Bowood Hotel Golf and Spa | Natalie and Adam | Winter Wedding

The chaos of Christmas may have been in full swing, but the moment I stepped out of my vehicle and walked into Bowood Hotel, my wedding photographer hat was on and it was all go full of excitement. You may know I love weddings and when I wake up I am literally bouncing out of bed to head out because I just love the fact every wedding is so very different.

The girls were in full swing, the Christmas music playing, the trees dressed and the dresses hung ready to be dancing around all day.

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.

Finding Quiet Moments on Your Wedding Day

When time stands still for two people. Life moves all around them, but for just a second, it’s just about them and their moment. This is one of my favourite pictures of the year. They walked out of the church and there was a flurry of activity all around them as the groomsmen were trying to sort out the confetti shot. But this moment was just them.

I’ve been married for twelve years and one of the things my photographer had us do when we came out of the church was he tucked us away beside the church for two minutes while the guests came out of the church. It was two minutes where it was just about me and Paul. One of my most memorable times of the day.

When you are choosing your wedding photographer, it’s the little details like this that make a photographer turn from just taking pictures to helping create your day. So whether you’re having a church ceremony, outdoor ceremony or registar, when you’ve walked out, tuck yourselves away for a minute and just be. In the quiet and away from the chaos ( or get in touch with me and I’ll help you create this moment!)

 Come down from cloud number 9 together and just soak up the moment where you are now married. Because when you walk back out to your family and friends, you’ll be separated as a couple and the time you spend together will be limited.

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.
