Up close : Elmore Court wedding photography

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.

Luxury wedding at Brympton House

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.

Hiding In Plain Sight. Authentic Wedding Photography.

People hardly notice us. We don’t set things up. We don’t work from “must have” lists. We don’t do what the venue tells us “everyone does.” We stay hidden in plain sight. It’s fairly intense for us, we work each situation and remain switched on all day. We’re always on the hunt for moments. A lot of the time our couples don’t realise we were there until they see the images.

A bride & groom take a quiet moment out of their wedding day

The doorway

“Hold the bouquet down. Be in the moment.”

There’s a quiet time after the confetti and before the food. Take that time for yourselves.

You only have one day and it passes in a blur.

We both Swiped right! – A winter wedding

Kate & Jamie had a winter wedding at Clevedon Hall in January after meeting on Tinder. It was a leap year and Kate had Haribo rings, so after Jamie’s Dad joking about it, she got down on one knee after the washing up. He said yes. Of course the Haribo didn’t last long and a few weeks later Jamie presented Kate with a diamond.

Award winning wedding photography

I know, everyone says they are award winning but some awards count more than others. Fearless have over 15,000 entries. There are 6 award collections per year. This collection – the last for 2016 – only 89 images were chosen and only 6 photographers were from the UK. So I’m quite chuffed to be award winning. Not only did I win an award but also had another image in the runners up. Below are the images I entered.

Trereife house wedding photography

Trereife House wedding in Cornwall

Trereife House is a gorgeous Manor House near Penzance in Cornwall. It’s an amazing wedding venue set in its beautiful formal gardens. Tacita and Jan booked us as their wedding photographers because we are husband and wife and we work together as a team as they do. Jan grew up in Cornwall and it’s a fantastic place. Jan proposed on St. Michael’s Mount in Marazion and they were married a stone’s throw away in Gulval Church just outside Penzance. Trereife house with its beautiful gardens and marquee is a gift for us as you’ll see…
