Adventures in Wedding Photography
Welcome to our blog. Here we share our favourite weddings, engagement shoots and other related things. If you would like to see more from Wiltshire and all the other places I’ve visited you can see featured weddings here or view the portfolio here.
This was our second tipi wedding. It was our third wedding in the last year where the church was right next door to the house and the reception was in the garden. Luckily we had a glorious day and that makes all the difference when your wedding is set in the garden.
Alex and Deb had an amazing day. I was delighted to be their Rockley Manor wedding photographer. Rockley Manor is just up the road from us and it’s always fantastic to photograph a wedding there. It’s such a beautiful Wiltshire wedding venue. The weather was on our side so the girls could have an outdoor ceremony on the Portico.
I was on my own for Laura & Nick’s gorgeous Cotswolds wedding. It was my first time as a Merriscourt wedding photographer and it’s quite a large complex so my first issue was finding where to park. Once that was done I had to find the wedding party. The place looked deserted. Luckily I bumped into a staff member who showed me the way. Laura was in the middle of bridal prep which is probably my favourite part of the day.
When we arrived at the Royal Garden Hotel for Day 2 of Taruna and Jonathan’s Indian wedding – See day 1 here – the Mandap build was well underway. Jonathan and his family made a beautiful Mandap; decorating it to celebrate the fusion of both families, Dutch and Indian. Here’s the story of Taruna & Jonathan’s Indian Royal Garden Hotel wedding.
I can’t believe that it’s been nearly two years since we photographed Karina and Guy’s wedding at Cowley Manor, but it has. Just before Christmas, we had a call from Karina’s brother Jonathan wanting to know if we were free for his wedding to Taruna. It was a two day affair with a civil ceremony in Uxbridge and an Indian wedding at The Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington. Luckily we were free.
Laura and John’s Notley Tythe Barn wedding was just straight up fun – all day. John didn’t want any groom prep and they didn’t want anything posed and that’s fine with us. When you get married it’s your day so go your own way. Today wasn’t a traditional wedding, they weren’t religious and had already officially – I would say “tied the knot” but that was just about to happen for real so “got married” will have to do.
