BOOM! Guy & Izzy are in the room (well on the blog anyhow). This was a fab wedding at Manor By The Lake in my home town of Cheltenham. Shooting weddings right on my doorstep is always a pleasure, although Gloucestershire has many amazing wedding venues, I’ve always really liked this one. It’s got beautiful gardens, amazing architecture, […]
Last weekend saw me photograph a same sex wedding at Friars Court in Oxfordshire. It was Pete & Nick’s turn to tie the knot and they chose the splendid setting of Friars Court gardens to have their outdoor wedding ceremony. This venue is perfectly suited to outdoor wedding ceremonies (which are becoming ever more popular) […]
Sometimes luck would have it that you have a Saturday available in your calendar that’s enquired about at very late notice. Alex & Olga’s Manor By The Lake wedding was one such day. This couple who reside in Dubai, only enquired about 6 weeks before the day, and I’m super pleased to say I was available, and not only that the weather in Gloucestershire was also on par with that offered abroad too! Clearly this was going to be a spectacular day. When I first Skype’d Alex & Olga they exuded fun yet a reassuring sense of calm & genuine trust in me to capture amazing wedding photos.
If you’re getting married in Cheltenham then you’d best be considering the amazing venue that is Manor By The Lake. As I’ve said time and time before it’s one of Gloucestershire’s hidden gems and since it’s refurbishment last year it certainly ticks all the boxes. It’s a beautiful Victorian mansion, with character and charm, plus the […]
Who’d have predicted an outdoor wedding at Manor House Hotel this weekend, apparently not the staff! Having set up indoors initially, an about turn occurred, rearranging the plans as the sun burst though the clouds and the day brightened beautifully. I guess that flexibility is what makes Manor House Hotel an accommodating wedding venue. If you’re fallen in […]
Several wedding venues I’ve worked at have other purposes besides, well, weddings! Firstly many are actually lived in homes, but are often used as film sets too, and Dorney Court is another such example. With Miss Marple and Poirot being filmed here previously this wedding venue was packed with historical charm. With accommodation on site and a […]
Winter weddings are ever more popular and over Christmas this year I was at Eynsham Hall to photograph Jay & Laura’s big day. Wedding photography in winter is always a challenge, time is against you, it gets dark very early, typically it’s cold outside and guests are reluctant therefore to step out unless they have mulled […]
Over the Christmas break I photographed my first wedding at Eynsham Hall, an impressive Grade II listed country house near North Leigh in Oxfordshire. This is a venue I’d not been to previously, somehow it had escaped me (maybe as it’s not in Gloucestershire), but it’s certainly one I’d be delighted to return to. I’m leaving you with […]
