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.
We shot Lisa and Steve’s Military wedding photography in August last year and they recommended us to Pete and Lizzie for their Military wedding.
Lizzie and Pete met at a Christmas Party in 2013. A Karaoke duet and a goodnight kiss led, eventually, to Durdle door where Pete proposed on a crisp winter’s morning in January 2015.
Changeable. I think that could describe the weather at all of our weddings this year and it was no different for Nicola and Ian’s Crowcombe Court wedding. In the morning it looked threatening but in the end we were given a glorious day with sunshine and little fluffy clouds, perfect. I know it’s an English obsession to talk about the weather but everyone hopes for the perfect day.
Greg and Rhian’s Cripps Stone Barn wedding was nearly ten years to the day after they met (it was two days out but we can forgive them for wanting a wedding on Saturday). Both are Doctors and met at Medical School. During a surprise trip to Barcelona Greg led Rhian to a romantic small quiet square and (once the Dutch bicycle tour had passed) got down on one knee.
Once Laura and Tom had seen Sopley Mill they fell in love with it and although it was still a building site they booked it there and then. They wanted a relaxed day with family and friends. The day was very laid back and stress free. We were Sopley Mill wedding photographers for Toby and Kelly last year and it was from that wedding that we were recommended to Laura and Tom (via Natalie, our Marbella bride and Tom’s sister).
Fiona found us on Fearless after “hours trawling the internet looking at images/blogs/reviews of photographers.” and really loved our work. Fiona and Mark decided to have a small intimate wedding with a ceremony in their local Church followed by a marquee reception at home. As usual, invitation creep meant that they ended up with about a hundred guests but still managed to keep the feel of a small family celebration.
Charlotte and JJ’s Great Tythe Barn wedding was rare in that they had an outdoor ceremony on the lawn. We’ve shot there a lot in the last year and it was a first for us. We had shot there a few weeks prior for Jenna and Ross’ wedding. They too wanted an outdoor ceremony but the weather didn’t look good.
Charlotte and Scott’s Italian Villa wedding, in July was a laid back happy day in a beautiful setting.
They met at work, it was love at first sight and they’ve been together for 5 years. Scott proposed at night on the 102nd floor of the Empire State Building in New York overlooking the city. It was such a blur they had to go back the next day to see what it looked like in daylight.
Emma and Will were married at St Martin’s a beautiful church in the tiny village of Bremhill in the heart of Wiltshire. Will proposed to Emma at the White Horse in Cherhill where I shot their engagement images.
Following the ceremony it was back for a marquee wedding reception at the family home. It was a really fabulous, family orientated day. The speeches were funny – both Emma and Will’s brother’s spoke. The food was amazing and the band rocked the party into the night.
