Bowood Hotel Wedding Venue Photographer Wiltshire 2

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 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.

It’s a nice day for a white wedding

As I drove down the quaint streets of Bisley and into the Gloucestershire countryside, the clouds above were looking ominous. They were showing rain. But that wasn’t going to put a dampener on this wedding day. The doorbell was rung and the door thrown open by the most gloriously happy bride welcoming me in to her magical day.

Frogmill Inn Gloucestershire | Katie & Laurie Wedding

On my first meeting with Katie and Laurie, I was greeted but the most fantastic energy! Katie and Laurie were full of smiles and bounce (yes bounce as in so much energy they could zap me with some of it). After out initial meeting at the Frogmill Inn and our walk around and mini pre wedding shoot (look here for a peek at it!)  I was all set to be their wedding photographer.

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.

Rustic Wedding Outdoor Rebecca & Tom | The Perfect Country Wedding in Warwickshire

Every day you meet people that cross your path. It may be a small smile, or thank you, please or just a simple hello that generates a nobody into a somebody special. I was really lucky to meet Bex through my sister in law and on the day I met Bex for the first time, I felt like I had known her for yonks. Her spirit is tenacious and it is so easy to see how Tom and Bex become Mr and Mrs.

As a wedding photographer, I get to see lots of different ideas come together based on a couple’s likes and hobbies, and this wedding really hit close to home. My idea of a marquee in a field, with horses, loads of flowers and true party animal guests is right up my alley.

Bex and Tom put all their loves in life into a pot and with a magic wand (and friends to help) magically created the most spectacular wedding day. The tiniest detail went into making this wedding perfect.

I started at the beautiful little church where I was greeted by the most glorious entrance way. Tom had created for Bex a stunning horseshoe arch which was lovingly decorated with wild flowers and roses to welcome the newly weds and their guests. The best part is you could detach it and move it to the marquee. (I think we will see Tom’s idea go viral all over Pinterest very soon.)

I believe the true moment of the day was the surprise entrance of Bex’s beloved horse. She was desperate to have her horse at the wedding and didn’t think it was possible. But Tom and some friends tidied up her beauty and as it made its’ entrance Bex was lost for words (well done Tom -brownie points to you!)

The day continued to get better and better with a live band, a crazy surprise Father/Daughter dance, and of course let’s not forget the best man’s speech(es), or Bex’s dad’s… or the cake smash…. or the bouncy castle… Darn there is too much to remember!

BEX AND TOM!

It was an honour to spend the day with you two and meet your beautiful family and friends. Thank you for letting me capture your love and special day. I wish you all the best and hope these pictures share light on your beautiful day.
