Giles & Stephanie

Well, what a gorgeous wedding this was!  Giles and Stephanie are such a lovely couple – genuinely nice people and adorable together.

On the 9th of December I ventured over to Weobley church to meet Giles and his groomsmen.  They were looking dapper in the family tartan – but where were the kilts boys?!  (Maybe being nearly 0º is a valid excuse.)

Anyhoo, the ceremony was beautiful – a harpist strum, hymns were sung, confetti was lobbed – all good stuff!  The way the way the bride and groom looked at each other though, that was my favourite part … such love in those eyes!

So, off to the stunning Brinsop Court we went for their reception. Its a real hidden gem of a place! I had not been to this venue before and hadn’t heard about it – despite it being not that far from my home town – but I really recommend it!  It gave a delightful backdrop for the group and couple shots – the 14th Century pink courtyard was awesome!

Giles & Stephanie did so well despite the freezing temperatures, their smiles were fixed on their joyful faces – or maybe frozen, I should have checked that actually. I could have taken photos of them all day but alas, I was only there for a half day!  So I left them to it upon the arrival of their wedding breakfast.

Giles, & Stephanie, although we only spent 4 hours together, it was a pleasure to be in your company and take your photos.  You are a wonderful couple and I wish you every happiness in your marriage together!

Jemma & Richard

I had the pleasure of shooting Jemma & Richards wedding on the 9th of September in Cheltenham!

It was stunning at the Cotswold Grange Hotel where Jemma was getting ready with her mum, sister and daughter. She was the ultimate chilled Bride and a dream to photograph!

So we had a lovely start to the day and the mighty rain showers ended before we left for the ceremony – yay!

It was a really beautiful area where we got to take the couples shots in Northleach – the old stone architecture was delightful, but alas the rain started again and we scarpered on to the reception venue.

Thankfully the rain didn’t last long and the day rolled on as intended.  We got some gorgeous sunset shots and the fireworks … my my. Most epic, lengthy display I’ve seen yet!

Jemma and Richard were a wonderful couple to photograph. So sweet together and so happy

Guys, thank you for having me as your photographer – It was such a lovely day!  Congratulations and and best wishes to your marital bliss!

 

Lynsey & Shaun

On the 25th of August I had the pleasure of shooting my most local wedding yet!  Lynsey & Shaun live just outside Knighton in Whitton.  This is where we lay our scene for the rest of the day!

Lynsey is such a sweet girl and she was so excited on the morning of the wedding – it was a delight to spend time with her and her lovely bridesmaid and parents!  I got to split my time between her family home, where she was getting ready, and their cottage just down the lane, where Shaun was getting ready!

Just as I was going down to take more photos with the Groom, we recieved some awful news.  Poor Shaun had just been stung badly by a wasp and needed medical assistance.  The ceremony had to be delayed while he was being seen to by the paramedics.  Lynsey was in an absolute panic but her bridesmaid was an amazing support in calming her down – what a treasure.

So, Shaun was able to get to the ceremony but it had to be shortened.  After than he needed to go to hospital 🙁

Looking back through the photos, Lynsey was so strong – she kept that smile on her face and soldiered on.

The celebrated return of Shaun got the evening off to a good start  … we still managed some couple shots and Lynsey partied hearty once she knew her boy was o.k.

My highlight of the evening was Lynsey rocking out to ‘A Bat Out Of Hell’ by Meatloaf … what a gal!

I’m really glad things turned to o.k in the end – it was quite scary for a while – but well done for getting through it Shaun and Lynsey.  You’re a wonderful couple and I wish you every happiness in your married life together. x
