The Old Lodge Minchinhampton | Gloucestershire Wedding Photographer | Cotswolds

Love starts with two people. Paul met Katherine and within weeks he knew she was the one. The day was windy and the sun was trying to come out and sending rays of sunshine as the day progressed. I showed up at the Old Lodge on the commons near Minchinhampton in the morning to find Paul taking deep breaths as the reality of what was about to take place was starting to sink in (who said it’s only the bride who gets nervous!)

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.  I was all set to be their wedding photographer.

Frogmill Inn | Katie and Laurie | Engagement Photography

I do believe there are signs of spring starting to creep into each day, which means we are getting closer to summer sun and wedding season!  Today I was lucky enough to head over to the beautiful, newly renovated Frogmill Inn just outside of Cheltenham. I will be photographing a wedding there in May and I can’t wait.

I met  with Katie and Laury to talk about their wedding photography and how we can make their pictures special for the day.

It is always a good idea to meet with your wedding photographer before your date so you can just have a moment to sit down, have a beer (or gin or whatever your tonic is!) and just talk. No pressure and no where else to be. You can also go for a walk around the venue, discuss where pictures can be made during different times of the time or if the weather isn’t cooperating. The more you can be open about the day and what it could possibly hold (a.k.a the WEATHER) the better it’ll be on the day for picture expectations.

Creating photographs for a wedding that are personal to each couple is very important to me. I want to make sure I understand as a wedding photographer, who you are as a couple; what makes you laugh, smile and jump on each other’s backs! Once I have that information being your wedding photographer is just that much easier!

So, here’s to another wonderful day to come. If you are planning your wedding and still looking for a wedding photographer, I would love to meet you. I may be a Gloucestershire wedding photographer 90% of the time, but I am more than happy to travel to make your wedding day magical.

Happy weekend to you all!

Eastington Park Wedding | Eastington Park Wedding Photographer

They say love can find you anywhere and at anytime. This is so true. Claire and James found love and what a beautiful wedding day they had to celebrate it. As you drive into the stunning grounds of Eastington Park make you instantly feel a sense of relaxation and excitement. The sweeping drive through the trees and walking up past the fountain into the most gorgeous front entrance was just the beginning of a perfect day.
