Worcestershire Marquee Wedding - Natalie and Richard

Natalie and Richards Wedding

Natalie and Richards Worcestershire marquee wedding was such an amazing day. Great weather, great surroundings and most of all, great people. It all started for me at Natalie's bridal prep where along with her 8 bridesmaids, Natalie was being pampered in readiness for her big day. There was a lot of excitement in the room as they all got ready with plenty of laughs too.

Once Natalie was ready, it was time for the reveal and what a great moment that was. A little Boomerang for the bridesmaids, orchestrated by the Rebel Rock girls before Natalie made her entrance. After this it was off to the church and time for Richard to see his stunning bride. After their ceremony, they made their way through the huge amount of confetti and and then to the marquee on Richard's family farmland. I knew the grounds already having shot their engagement shoot there. I loved the little areas scattered around which were great for portraits.

Time to party

After the speeches and wedding breakfast it was time for everyone to enjoy the evening. Guests mingled outside, some took to more extreme tractor racing (see the photos) It was then time to party. Natalie and Richard started it all off with their first dance then everyone else took to the floor too. A couple more drinks and the dancing really kicked off.

Wedding Sparklers

Later in the evening it was time for the sparkler shot. I love doing this shot, I know some photographers don't but I always find it to be a fun time. Lot's of people, all excited with a few drinks on board, what could go wrong? Nothing did go wrong however, it was just a great moment for everyone to be involved with.

The Wedding

Rebecca and Jon enjoyed an amazing day, both getting ready at the venue. Their ceremony in the Maximilian room was quite an emotional time, with a few tears from not only the guests but the couple too. Jon did have a grin like a Cheshire Cat though when he saw the stunning Rebecca walking up the aisle towards him. After their ceremony, they spent the afternoon outside chatting and drinking before having their reception in the ballroom. Whilst Rebecca and Jon mingled, Jemima Phillips entertained their guests throughout the day with her amazing skills playing the Harp. The evening was a beautiful one, especially for the time of year. We were able to get out for some night portraits as well as making the most of the daylight.

Lemore Manor wedding

Country House Wedding - Lemore Manor

Country House Wedding.

If you are looking for a Country House Wedding, look no further than Lemore Manor, it has it all. A superb wedding venue nestled in the beautiful surroundings of the Herefordshire countryside, close to the Welsh border. From the beautiful Orangery to the gorgeous Hen House for the Bridal party, you are spoilt with stunning rooms and exceptional scenery outside.

The Wedding Day

Angelique and Wayne's Country House Wedding at Lemore Manor was a perfect day. A hint of rain here and there, but when did that ever spoil a wedding? We managed to get outside after their ceremony for a few group photos and some portraits, not forgetting the smoke grenade shots. There was a great atmosphere throughout the day, everyone up for the party, especially in the evening. A few emotional moments during the ceremony and the speeches only added to the already great feel of the day. The partying at night was as expected, superb. This being a part Jewish wedding, I expected nothing less though.

Barn Weddings

This was my first visit to the Mule Shed and I loved working there too. Made even better by Kayleigh and Scott who had a relaxed attitude towards their wedding day and just made it fun for everyone. It was a beautiful afternoon so guests could sit and relax in the sun or shelter inside the barns. Later, Kayleigh and Scott had a game of Mr and Mrs in the courtyard. After this, we went out for some portraits in that beautiful sunset, Kayleigh and Scott were so easy to work with.

Sparklers at Mickleton hills farm wedding

Mickleton Hills Farm Wedding

Mickleton Hills Farm Wedding

This is my first blog post in what seems like ages. It's been such a busy year so far that I haven't had time to even think of blogging. Welcome also, to my first ever, Mickleton Hills Farm wedding post.

My first ever visit to the beautiful Mickleton hills Farm Wedding Venue and I was lucky enough to share it with the amazing Paige and Steven. Their wedding day was just superb, family and friends got together to make sure that these guys had a blast. Their day was all about having fun and relaxing for everyone. The party in the evening had everyone on the dance floor, partying and having a great time together. I love the sparkler shot as it reflects Paige and Steven's mood so much. Their huge smiles and beaming faces should give you an idea of their day. Amazingly, Paige's Mum made her beautiful dress, which was stunning.

The Venue

Mickleton Hills Farm is a gorgeous new venue set in the beautiful Cotswolds and surrounded by gorgeous fields and views. The barn where the wedding breakfast was held is really spacious with plenty of natural light flowing through the huge windows. the part of the barn where the dancing takes place is just awesome, with loads of room and access to the courtyard and lawns on the other side. The light in the evening in the courtyard is to die for and a must for some portraits. We took a walk around the grounds for more portraits and there are plenty of areas to get those important shots.

It would be great to be able to go back to this beautiful venues so if you are looking for your photographer at Mickleton Hills Farm Wedding Venue, get in touch asap.

Brinsop Court Herefordshire Wedding

Brinsop Court Herefordshire Wedding

Another beautiful Brinsop Court Herefordshire Wedding, Brinsop Court know how to do weddings that's for sure.

This wedding was on December 22nd and definitely had that Christmas feel to it, it even snowed! I should say, it kind of snowed, Liam and Laura had hired a snow machine which was fantastic. It was switched on just as they arrived back from their church ceremony and were being led in by the piper. It was actually quite realistic too, just not cold which was great. Their wedding was very family orientated with the children having a great time throughout the day, as well as the adults.

Brinsop Court reception.

Once everyone was in the warm and cosy Brinsop Court with the glowing fire and Christmas decorations, it was canapés all round. It was during this that I was able to sneak out with Liam and Laura for some portraits in the remainder of the December light. I love how the light falls perfectly during the evening at Brinsop Court. There are plenty of great little spots for portraits scattered all over Brinsop Court. Once we had finished it was straight upstairs to the banqueting hall which had been beautifully decorated. Here they had their wedding breakfast and speeches, again everything looked cosy and warm in the lovely candle light.

Sparklers and Portraits.

In the evening we headed outside for a sparkler shot, loads of fun to do and some more portraits. It was then onto the cake cutting and dancing with the awesome Breakthrough playing some great tunes.

Dewsall Court Wedding Sparklers

Dewsall Court Wedding - Hannah & Gordon

Dewsall Court Wedding

I got to go back to the beautiful Dewsall Court for Hannah and Gordon's amazing wedding in December. If you haven't had a look at Dewsall Court for your wedding venue; then you should, this place is just stunning. Even on a cold, wet December day this venue oozes class. The main house is just as a country house should be, warm and cosy. The Wainhouse, where you can have your ceremony is absolutely stunning, lit with softlights and candlelight, it's beautiful. If you love candlelight you will love the decor for this wedding, walking towards the Wainhouse in the evening light, just looked breathtaking.

The Wedding.

Hannah and Gordon wanted their wedding to be relaxed, fun and about everyone being able to enjoy themselves. They didn't want staged photographs, just a bit of direction from me during their portraits. The whole day went superbly, their ceremony in the Wainhouse and then head back to the main house for canapés. A small number of group photographs and some quick portraits, along with the guys, just being guys.  After a quick speech from Hannah's Dad and a bit of music, it was sparkler time! The manic moment of sparklers being lit whilst everyone has a few drinks on board always makes me smile to myself.

Reception.

After the sparklers, everyone made their way back to the Wainhouse for the wedding breakfast. It was then back to the main house for desserts, espresso martinis and cupcakes which were for one of their close friends as a birthday surprise. The Mustangs played a few tunes and the partying got underway. After this, it was back to the Wainhouse for a Ceildh with Tweed in Bourbon, this looked like loads of fun! After the excitement of the Ceildh, the DJ kept the party alive into the early hours.

It was great to work with the following wedding suppliers.

2018 Review

My 2018 Review

What a year that was!

I feel so fortunate to have been invited along to capture your love, tears and laughter and have had such a blast in doing so. So many moments to look back on and so many friendships made too. Every single one of you made my job the most enjoyable job I could wish for. I really do get the most amazing couples to work with and appreciate all of you so much.

Whenever I make my way to a wedding, I always have a clear head and have learnt to expect the unexpected. Sometimes what I do is photojournalism, sometimes during portraits I will create something a little different for you. Every single time though, I am pushing myself to do my best for you.

2018 was a year where we basked in glorious sunshine for long periods, then right in the middle of it we got soaked to remind us that we are British. 2018 was also the year that I got to shoot my first wedding in the USA.  I made my way to Huntington Beach California which was an awesome experience. If you are looking for a destination wedding photographer, get in touch as I'd love to hear from you. Most of all though, 2018 was the year that I got to share some great times with you all!

I have also been fortunate enough to work with some of the best wedding suppliers time and time again. I look forward to spending more time with you all in 2019 and meeting more of you too.

Enough with the words and on to some of my favourites from 2018. No generic slideshow with music you might hate, just a set of images that you can scroll through at your own pace.

Enjoy!
