Cake has and will always be seen as a tradition at a wedding. I love to photograph guests as they walk into the venue for the wedding breakfast or reception because they always head straight to the cake table to admire the work that has gone into designing this edible art.
Many Gloucestershire wedding photographers still offer USB sticks in their wedding photography packages and couples think that if they do not have a USB stick they are not getting good value for their money. But let me explain to you why I have decided not to give USB sticks anymore and how online wedding galleries are a luxury.

Every bride hopes for the perfect wedding day and the perfect weather. But the one thing we cannot control is the weather. Jane’s dream was to have her wedding breakfast in her parent’s orchard, surrounded by friends and family and 5000 fairy lights.

When you mention choosing your wedding shoes to your partner, you may see the eye roll take place. It is a big deal – I get it!
So how do you narrow your shoe choice down for your wedding day?
I’m writing to you today as I head into the middle of my seventh week of lockdown. At first it didn’t seem so bad. I was hyped up about spending more time with my children, even the idea of homeschooling, jumping on the trampoline and making healthy dinners was all full of positive energy. But as the weeks of gone by and my diary has turned from green to purple to red; I can’t help but feel the stress of what is happening to the wedding industry.
14 years…. I am not sure where the time has gone, but somewhere in that period of time I have managed to have three kids, start a business as a Gloucestershire wedding photographer AND still fit in my wedding dress!!!
Now don’t take away my excitement by reminding me that my wedding dress is a lace up and so it has the luxury of being kind to my broken body; which may have eaten one to many Cadbury eggs…. I still fit!
I am heading into my seventh week of lockdown. Gloucestershire weddings are being postponed into August and I was feeling sad. I was down and needed something to make me smile. But most importantly something to help me remember why I am where I am. So I went to my wedding dress. Got it out. Put it on. And ran.
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.
Why not find inspiration in others who have gone before you!? I say heck yes!
A September wedding of dreamy weather, venue and people. I can’t help but fall in love with Pauntley House every time I drive down the little lane with fields welcoming me on either side, ready to be part of yet another beautiful Gloucestershire wedding.
My first time at Pauntley Court was actually before Pauntley became a wedding venue. One of my wedding clients was getting married in the church, with a marquee on her parent’s farm for the wedding breakfast. In need of somewhere to take their family for wedding photographs, Melissa was approached about using her beautiful gardens; and Melissa being Melissa said “absolutely!”
