canon wedding photographer winner

Winner of World Rugby Canon UK Photography

It may have taken me six months to get this blog up, but it is finally here. In September 2015 I entered a photography competition with Canon UK. With thousands of photographers entering images from all over the UK I was very lucky to be the chosen winner of their World Rugby Cup Competition.

Now, if you aren’t into rugby this may mean nothing to you, but in our house this was BIG news. Not only did I get to feel pretty proud of my accomplishment but I also got the BEST prize of all time.

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.

Berwick Lodge Wedding | Bristol

An October wedding, with the beautiful autumnal look but the warmth of the summer sun. This wedding was always going to be a good laugh because Steve is one big character and Claire and Steve wanted a good party. Working alongside the wonderful Jules of Wild and Co Flowers (@wildandcoflowers) the rooms in Berwick Lodge smelled of fresh flowers as her meadows lined the aisle for Claire to walk down.
