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..
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.
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.
You’re probably thinking how can this be destination wedding photography? It looks very wet and not unlike Wales. The answer is simple. It is a destination wedding when your clients have flown in from Australia. So Wales meets Australia for a beautiful outdoor wedding at Plas Brondanw in Snowdonia.

We travelled all the way to Berkshire (about 30 minutes) for Olwen and James Kintbury wedding. They were married at St. Mary’s in Kintbury followed by a laid back wedding reception at – well we can’t say as the venue don’t want any publicity – somewhere in Berkshire. We were the wedding photographers for Ceri and Debs’ wedding at Grittleton House in 2014. Olwen and James were guests and loved the photos so they booked us. We get a lot of recommendations which is fantastic as it must mean we are doing a good job. Here’s their story –
Natasha and Alasdair chose Shilstone for their wedding when they discovered it while on holiday in Devon. Shilstone wedding photography is fantastic. It’s a truly amazing wedding venue. It has a barn for the ceremony, the gorgeous house for the drinks reception and then the impressive marquee for the wedding breakfast and dancing. All set in beautiful rolling Devon countryside. I’ll let Natasha tell you about it –
Claire & Nathan found us on Fearless Photographers. It’s a collection of some of the best wedding photographers in the world and we’re over the moon to have won a couple of international wedding photography awards there. We met Claire & Nathan back in April for their engagement photography in Blackpool and they were such a great couple so we were really looking forward to their wedding at Nunsmere Hall in Cheshire.
Ben & Victoria’s luxury Cheshire wedding took place in Mobberley, the village where they grew up and live. We started the morning with Victoria and the girls at Victoria’s father’s beautiful farmhouse. The wedding marquee was being set up in the garden while the girls got their hair and makeup done in the kitchen.
