After finding each other online Cheryl & Kevin found that they had mutual friends. Five years on and they were about to be married at Berkeley Castle. A grand and dramatic wedding venue in Gloucestershire. It was our first Berkeley Castle wedding photography – we’ll be back there in July with Matt & Howard – so it was an exciting new experience for us. Cheryl and Kevin booked us after meeting us at a wedding fair.
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 wedding at Wellington Barn. Our first at St. Mary’s church. St. Mary’s is a beautiful little church tucked away down a lane just by the Barn. It’s small but can hold 80 guests so can cope with most weddings. Wellington Barn is a fantastic modern barn set in gorgeous rolling Wiltshire countryside. Emily & Andrew booked us as their Wiltshire wedding photographers after they found us on Fearless Photographers.
Fate brought Amy & Keith together. Although they weren’t local to each other and Amy had her Tinder radar set to local. Keith happened to be visiting his best mate Mike nearby. As luck would have it, Keith had a quick browse and cupid’s arrow struck home. 3 years later and they chose to have a Birtsmorton Court wedding. They chose us for their wedding photographers as we had photographed their friends George and Simon’s wedding and had taken a photo of them both dancing which became Amy’s favourite.
Brympton House wedding photography. There I said it. It’s what attracted Katie and Jamie to us. Katie had seen our wedding photography on Instagram and loved it. It was the first wedding we booked through Instagram. It’s good to know how people find us. Brympton House is a grand, beautiful venue and it’s quickly becoming a favourite.
“This is where the marquee is going and we are going to arrive on a tractor, probably set to music, through that gate you can see over there.” I looked across the fields and imagined what a beautiful countryside wedding this would be. Standing in the garden Amy explained her plans, they were going to build steps up from the field to the garden where the marquee would look out across Wiltshire. All the guests would be seated on straw bales as they greeted the newlyweds and drank champagne. That was the plan anyway.
Stanbrook Abbey is a stunning wedding venue in Worcester. We were here for the second time photographing a wedding at this former monastery. The dramatic architecture provides a gorgeous setting. It makes being a wedding photographer easy and the staff are great too. When people ask us which is our favourite wedding venue we always tell them it’s not the venue, the people are most important. Stanbrook Abbey wedding photography is a joy.
I love to get up close and mingle with the guests at a wedding. To really get in the mix because that way you can really see what your guests were feeling. How much they enjoyed the day and all the little quirky things that they do. Weddings generally follow a certain format; they flow the same way. The thing that makes a wedding unique is the couple and the guests so I like to get right in the middle so that I can show the uniqueness in each wedding day. Joe and Sarah chose a beautiful wedding venue in Gloucestershire – Elmore Court – for their wedding.
Fay & Chris came over from Australia to have a Christmas wedding at the Vermont, Newcastle where they met at Uni. The Vermont is a fantastic hotel situated right next door to the New Castle from which the city gets it’s name. We love Winter wedding photography, especially Christmas weddings it’s a special time of year. Add to that the joy of a wedding and it makes for a magical day.
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.
