Congratulations and Happy Anniversary to Mr & Mrs Edmonds. We had a fabulous day a year ago today shooting Kate and Eddie’s wedding at Kings Weston House, Bristol. It rained all day but it was definitely one of our favourite weddings and our first to feature Christmas decorations. Here are some of my favourites from their wedding.
Adventures in Wedding Photography
Hi there, welcome to our wedding photography blog. Here we share our favourite weddings, engagement shoots and other wedding related things. If you would like to see more wedding images you can see featured weddings here or view our wedding gallery here.
Amy and Mark are a lot of fun. We shot their pre-wedding photography in Bristol on a freezing cold February day just off Park Street. As usual it all started a little awkward but we soon warmed up and got some great shots.
To end the year I thought I would post some of our favourite weddings from 2014. An image from the pre-wedding shoot and then a corresponding wedding image. To start we have our first wedding of the year back in February.
Yesterday I shot Tara and Rob who are having a New Forest wedding at Easter next year. Here’s a sneak peek from the pre wedding in Clifton. It was unintended. I was trying to catch them through the window but being blacked out that didn’t work. I still think it looks quite cool though.
Let me know what you think in the comments.
We shoot weddings across the UK and abroad so if you are planning a wedding then please get in touch. We would love to hear about your plans.
In our blurb on the website it says – “Carol is there to capture alternative angles on the ceremony and candid shots of the guests.” You might wonder what that means so today I thought I would share some of her images. It also helps me to have a female presence, someone who can go ahead into the bridal prep and check that everyone is decent – or at least if they aren’t, that they don’t mind me coming in. She also carries a survival kit with hairspray, lippy and a sewing kit which has come in handy on many occasions (and not always for sewing). On the right we see Ed’s best man Pete having a button sewn back on to his waistcoat before the ceremony. We’re not just there for the photography, neither of us mind getting stuck in and helping out.
We shot the first wedding at Kings Weston House in Bristol last Christmas and we were back there a few weeks ago to shoot Laura and Arash’s wedding. The ceremony was at 3pm which we thought meant that we could have a lie in and leisurely drive over to meet Laura. However the gods of traffic and misguided sat-nav had other ideas and ended up being a frantic drive over. We still arrived on time so no big drama in the end.
Harptree Court – Home to the Great British Bake off – is a beautiful, wedding venue in Somerset. I don’t think that they have held many weddings so if you are looking for somewhere unique then I can recommend it. They also have an amazing treehouse and yurt if you are looking for a special place to get engaged.
Sometimes we get asked who that other one is standing next to the bride. That, dear friends, is the groom.
We always try to include the bridal prep into the wedding day but it’s rare that we shoot the groom getting ready. Why? Because usually he jumps into the shower, has a shave, a quick swoosh of the hair and he’s off.
