Caroline & Mat Wedding, Caswell House, Oxfordshire

The good news on arrival at Caswell House in Oxfordshire is that the venue is superb.  The less good news was gale force winds and lashing rain. Thankfully, Caroline and Mat are a pretty stoical pair and took the adverse weather in their stride with the help of their nearest and dearest.  When the...


Naomi & Robbie Wedding, Old Down Manor, Tockington

Here’s another wedding that it’s taken me a while to blogging. It all kicked off early at Reflections in Thornbury where Naomi and here bridal party were well looked after.  Once home, Naomi was in the hands capable hands of Jessica Mills who made sure that she left for the Church...


Charlotte & Stuart Wedding, Holy Trinity Church, Abbots Leigh & The Clifton Club, Bristol

  It’s taken a while to get round to blogging this.  Shame that there hasn’t been a summer to remember since we were all shivering away outside the church! The day began at Charlotte’s family home where she was well looked-after by her team and Martha the dog.  For her...

Laura & Oliver Wedding, Bristol Cathedral & Java

Bristol Cathedral is a majestic and imposing building that would dwarf many a wedding party, so it’s a good job that Laura and Oliver are a pretty sociable pair.  In the moments before the ceremony, the area outside the Cathedral quickly became crowded with top hats and other finery.   It...

Lindsay & Ash Wedding, St Matthew's Church Wookey and Coombe Lodge, Blagdon, Somerset

This was an action packed wedding from start to finish. After spending a very pleasant morning in the company of Lindsay, her family, friends and three cats, we all (minus the cats) headed for St Matthew’s Church in Wookey; a Somerset village best known for its caves.  The Church is set in an...


Kate & Matt, Pre-Wedding Shoot, Bristol

Thanks to this rather singular summer of weather, this shoot had to be rearranged countless (I think it was actually 3) times. I’m really glad that we were able to do it in the end, though, as Kate and Matt were naturals in front of the camera. Kate and Matt are soon to be married at Coombe...


Gemma & Kev Wedding, Ramada Grange Hotel, Winterbourne, Bristol

Looking out on another rainy August day, it’s fair to say that our small island is not blessed with the most reliable conditions even at the best of times.  When I first met Gemma and Kev to discuss their wedding, the weather naturally came up as a potential concern.  After an intense...


Chrissy & Mervyn Wedding, Berwick Lodge, Bristol

I joined Chrissy for her preparations at Equinox.  A pre-wedding croissant is absolutely not to be sniffed at. The bad news is that the weather wasn’t kind, which meant that we weren’t able to take advantage of Berwick Lodge’s beautiful grounds for fear of sinking into the sodden...


Laura & Steve Wedding, Avon Gorge Hotel & Racks, Clifton, Bristol

Laura teaches music and didn’t want a “traditional” wedding.  Her amazing dress certainly struck a chord (ahem) with all the guests. Laura and Steve’s wedding was very much a Clifton affair.  For anyone unfamiliar with Bristol, it’s considered by many as the most...
