As a wedding photographer in the UK, I am lucky to photograph weddings at many different venues with many different wedding themes.

From romantic wedding venues such as Berkeley and Thornbury Castle to rustic Cotswold wedding barns Upcote Barn, The Kingscote Barn, Great Tythe barn in Tetbury. There is a place for any type of wedding. And can I add, your wedding photography will look insane no matter what theme you choose!

Summer Wedding Photography in Gloucestershire | Hollie and Chris

Summer Wedding in Gloucestershire | Hollie and Chris

I first met Hollie at a wedding open evening. She had driven down from Essex with her lovely mum that day to find and meet Gloucestershire wedding suppliers. Holly and I got along right away. I understood her wedding photography vision. They were looking for a relaxed wedding photographer. They wanted the pictures to feel natural. They didn’t want to spend all day being away from their guests to have pictures taken. With that Hollie booked me to be her wedding photographer. I am lucky to be a recommended wedding photographer Drakestone House. So Hollie knew she was in good hands for her wedding photographs.

From the Desk of A Wedding Photographer During COVID 19

Dear  Journal,

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.

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.

5 Reasons Why You Should Love Your Wedding Dress

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.

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.
