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.
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.
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…
Robert and Andrew’s Pembroke College wedding in Cambridge was a day full of joy and emotion. Robert and Andrew had talked about getting married for ages. Eventually Andrew decided to do something about it and booked a surprise weekend in a very romantic Landmark Trust apartment in the tower of Canons Ashby house in Northamptonshire.
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 Cotswolds wedding photographers. I’ll let Ged tell you about the wedding…
All I could hear was giggling coming from behind the door and shouts of “We’re not ready!” as I arrived. I had to wait in the kitchen where I could see the venue. Are you looking for a unique wedding venue in the South West? Latifé & Andrew chose a beautiful one of a kind wedding venue. It “floats” within walking distance of their home.
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 Cotswolds 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.
