Mr & Mrs Voyle- Marshfield Church & Homewood Park

Marshfield Church & Homewood Park Wedding Harriet and Adam are two of the most amazing people I have been fortunate enough to meet. I feel so privileged to have had them come into my life and to document their wedding day was an absolute pleasure. Harriet chose to get ready at her mums house in the little village of Marshfield in South Gloucestershire. Meanwhile Adam finished getting ready at the local pub in the same village right next door to the church.  The whole of Marshfield was excited to see Harriet and Adam marry in their Parish church and you could feel the buzz around village. The morning was relaxed with the girls getting ready; Pippa the flower girl (and dog!) roaming around and Harriet’s dad and brother finalising the last few details for the rest of the day. The weather just about held off all morning but just as it was time to leave to walk to the church, it started to drizzle. Harriet’s dad walked her down the aisle to a tearful Adam. It didn’t take long before everyone was welling up! After the ceremony the guests headed to the reception at Homewood Park in Bath whilst I stayed with the newlyweds for some photographs. Harriet took me and Adam to a beautiful private field where she used to walk the dogs with her mum. Over at Homewood Park, Marshfield Ice Cream van was serving up ice cream to the guests, Pippa was chasing shuttlecocks and the guests were enjoying the grounds of the venue. The food was amazing, speeches were fantastic and all the guests pretty...

Eleanor & Rob- Penpont House Engagement Session

I had such an amazing time exploring Penpont House with Eleanor and Rob for their engagement session. Eleanor grew up really close by and the owners of the house are her family friends! She used to play in the grounds surrounding the house so it only made sense to get married here too! We used this time to take a wander around the venue to show me where their wedding day will be taking place- which is so useful. We combined this with their engagement session as this place means so much to Eleanor. The grounds at Penpont House are just incredible! I could have easily spent a whole day photographing these two here. It has secret walled gardens, thick wooden doors leading to more glades, a river running through and even a maze! We spent quite a while wandering this amazing location and planning where we would go on their wedding day in September too. It’s going to be the most magical wedding at Penpont House, I can’t...

Kate and Mike- Durdle Door, Dorset Engagement Session

Durdle Door Engagement Session I met Kate and Mike for their Durdle Door engagement session on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset. Durdle Door is a natural limestone archway in the ocean near Lulworth. It really is such a beautiful part of the world! These two are getting married in Wimbourne St Giles at St Giles House next month! This venue is incredible and I’m so excited that these guys will be my first wedding here. We took  a stroll down the steep hill to the beach at Durdle Door and walked past the tourists who were still swimming even at 7pm! We had loads of fun on the beach as the sun was slowly setting. It was so beneficial to have this time with these guys as it got these two used to having their photo taken together ready for the big day. Thank you for letting me capture your Durdle Door engagement session, I can’t wait for the wedding in...

Mr & Mrs Lexton-Peck- St Mary Redcliffe Church and Over Barn, Gloucester

Mr and Mrs Lexton-Peck, Over Barn  Hannah and Sam were married on the 9th June 2018 at the gorgeous St Mary Redcliffe church in the centre of Bristol. The church is incredible, you can’t miss it. It’s over 800 years old and a masterpiece of gothic architecture. Hannah and Sam had their beautiful ceremony here before heading off in a VW camper to Over Barn in Gloucester. These two venues couldn’t have been more different but it worked so well! Over Barn a stunning rural venue that lets you put your own stamp on it by being a blank canvas. It’s not only charming but also is the ideal backdrop for a variety of stunning wedding photos too. It has the farm, a glade of trees, winding paths, Christmas tree fields and even a couple of Emus to take photos with! It was luck that I got to work with Hannah and Sam. Their original photographer unfortunately fell ill and I was only more than happy to step in for their Over Barn wedding with 3 weeks to go! The Wedding The ceremony was focused on bringing them together as a couple. The rest of their wedding was definitely all about having fun and celebrating with their friends and families. Weddings are always packed full of amazing moments, and this one was no exception. The best man was Sam’s brother and his speech incredibly funny and heart-warming. Although it also included a rather interesting choice of an envelope full of faux poo, which led to a story about a prank that Sam had played on him when he was younger....
