Mel and Ged met at work. Mel interviewed Ged for a job and after 3 years of working side by side and discovering that they were both Midsomer Murders fans – They entered the wedding breakfast to the Midsomer Murders theme – they finally got together in 2006. I asked them why they had chosen to have their wedding at Stone Barn. They told me they just loved the Cotswolds and wanted their wedding photos to reflect the area and time of year; Roaring fires, stone cottages and beautiful countryside. Stone Barn is an amazing place for us wedding photographers. I’ll let Ged tell you about the wedding…
Brympton House is a wonderful, romantic Somerset wedding venue. For wedding photographers it’s the perfect setting for a wedding. It is gorgeous inside and outdoors has stunning gardens. Elizabeth and Andrew’s wedding was one of our favourites from 2016. A luxury wedding in a beautiful church followed by a reception in a grand, historic house in the autumn with beautiful light, a beautiful bride and a handsome groom. Perfect.
Fiona and Ben’s Larmer Tree Gardens wedding was fun and quirky. Ben was dressed in peacock colours to match the venue’s prolific birds and Fiona had a beautiful 50’s inspired tea length dress. Luckily it was a gorgeous Autumn day so they were able to hold the wedding ceremony outdoors in the Lower Indian Room. Here’s the low down..
We’ve done a lot of pre-wedding photography but we’ve never had it as wet as we did when we met Kate and Jamie at Clevedon Pier. I phoned on the way to check whether we should go ahead and they were still up for it which was fantastic. Even in the rain we can make fantastic images and I love variety. When we met we had a coffee in a cafe on the seafront but the weather wasn’t going to let up so brollies in hand we went down to the pier.
Charlie is a bell ringer for St. George’s Church, Easton in Gordano. Carol is afraid of heights so she was a little nervous when he announced that he was going to be ringing the bells for his wedding. She braved it out and went up the tower and photographed him and the other bell ringers doing their thing before Amanda arrived in the car. We were excited to be Clevedon Hall wedding photographers as we hadn’t been there before and it’s a beautiful venue. We be back for another fabulous, if a little colder, Clevedon Hall wedding in January. Can’t wait.
It’s on days like this that us wedding photographers like to look forward to the summer. It won’t be long (til summer comes) and to get in the mood here’s a rustic, country wedding at Prior’s Tithe Barn. Kat and Reece met one July evening in 2010. After plucking up the courage to ask her out Reece and Kat spent their summer getting to know each other before spending the next two years studying apart only meeting once a month. It was tough but it made them stronger.
We get enquiries from all over the world. Recently we had a couple of enquiries for proposal and engagement shoots. One from Hong Kong and one from Australia. One I can share with you and one I can’t. New Year is the most popular time to get engaged and Nathan had arranged a European trip to propose to Sachini at the Temple of Apollo in Stourhead Gardens.
You’re probably thinking how can this be destination wedding photography? It looks very wet and not unlike Wales. The answer is simple. It is a destination wedding when your clients have flown in from Australia. So Wales meets Australia for a beautiful outdoor wedding at Plas Brondanw in Snowdonia.

Natasha and Alasdair chose Shilstone for their wedding when they discovered it while on holiday in Devon. Shilstone wedding photography is fantastic. It’s a truly amazing wedding venue. It has a barn for the ceremony, the gorgeous house for the drinks reception and then the impressive marquee for the wedding breakfast and dancing. All set in beautiful rolling Devon countryside. I’ll let Natasha tell you about it –
Claire & Nathan found us on Fearless Photographers. It’s a collection of some of the best wedding photographers in the world and we’re over the moon to have won a couple of international wedding photography awards there. We met Claire & Nathan back in April for their engagement photography in Blackpool and they were such a great couple so we were really looking forward to their wedding at Nunsmere Hall in Cheshire.
