Sudeley Castle Wedding Photography – Sammy and Anthony

Last Summer took me to lots of beautiful weddings in the Cotswolds and my first time photographing a wedding at Sudeley Castle. Weddings at Sudeley Castle are always going to be romantic, Sudeley is steeped in history with acres of beautiful gardens and ruins to wander through and was a perfect location for Sammy and Anthony’s big day, which was great fun to photograph. I arrived to the girls excitement and the popping of champagne corks, Sammy looked absolutely stunning in Pronovias and her Bridesmaids were super stylish in nude wrap dresses. Naturally Anthony looked really sharp in his suit. It was a beautiful ceremony in St Mary’s Chapel, which is in the grounds of Sudeley, so the guests could simply walk over to the drinks reception in the Queens Garden. We were treated to perfect summer weather, warm and sunny, just right for everyone to enjoy drinks and canap├ęs in the grounds. Here are some of my favourites.

Mas de la Rose Wedding, Provence – Rachel & Ryan

As I’m writing this it’s grey and wet outside, so what better day to share Rachel and Ryan’s beautiful wedding in sunny Provence. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer at Mas de la Rose, I’m your girl! It’s a gorgeous intimate venue, nestled in Provencal countryside, amongst the vineyards and Lavender, that I’m always thrilled to go back to. I arrived to Rachel and the girls getting ready and Ryan enjoying a drink with his squad of Groomsmen. I couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome during the day, Rachel and Ryan and their families were so lovely. I have to pinch myself sometimes that I get to work with such fantastic people. The day was beautiful, relaxed and filled with laughter, so sit back and enjoy some sunshine.

Curradine Barns Wedding Photography – Lauren & Alex

As we race towards the end of another year and no doubt some of you will be starting to feel a bit festive, I thought I’d treat you to the cosy, colourful, Autumn, fairy light filled and down right fabulous wedding of Lauren & Alex at Curradine Barns. After my first email with Lauren, I just knew I wanted to shoot her wedding, even more so when we met. She’s a total babe with a wicked sense of humour and a big heart, she also has bucket loads of talent and runs Lauren Aston Designs, famous for chunky giant knitted blankets, cushions and Santa Hats (yes Santa hats) and if you’re a Instagram fan like I am, you’ll love her Insta Stories, they never fail to make me chuckle. Anyway, back to the wedding. I hadn’t met Alex until the big day, when I did it was easy to see what a perfect team they made! I don’t think there were many moments where they weren’t laughing together and just having the best time! You’ll be able to see their wedding featured on Rock My Wedding very soon, but in the mean time, here are some of my favourites.

Ettington Park Wedding Photography – Hannah & Mike

Hannah & Mike’s Ettington Park wedding happened on a sunny day in June. I love weddings at Ettington Park, all of the wedding’s I’ve shot there have been for really laid back, fun couples who love a good party and Hannah & Mike were no exception. When I arrived in the morning, the tunes were pumping and the champagne flowing, Hannah and her Bridesmaids were busy making themselves look even more gorgeous, with the expertise of Make up Artist Avril McClemet and Hair by Dean Botrill. Apart from Hannah’s maid of honour, none of the Bridesmaids had seen Hannah’s stunning Pronovias dress before, so when they came into the room for the big reveal, they were pretty speechless. Meanwhile Mike was almost ready with his squad of eight Groomsmen. The weather played ball so Hannah & Mike were able to have their ceremony outside, which is always gorgeous in the chapel ruins at Ettington Park, followed by drinks and canap├ęs on the terrace. After the ceremony I whisked Hannah & Mike away for some relaxed couple portraits before the guests sat down for dinner. Everyone was in for a big surprise with lots of laughs, as the couple had booked The Singing Waiters to keep everyone entertained after the speeches and in the party mood. I loved every minute of this wedding, such a lovely couple with a great bunch of friends and wonderful family. Big thanks to Lisa Carpenter as my second photographer.

Shustoke Farm Barns Wedding Photography – Emma & Ben

Shustoke Farm Barns Wedding
I just had to start this post with this photo – I mean how happy do these two look! Emma & Ben, two of the loveliest people you’ll ever meet, full of joy and so, so good together. I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding at Shustoke Farm Barns and what a day it was. The rain certainly didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits, that’s for sure. Here are a handful of my favourite shots that tell their story.

Prague Pre Wedding Shoot – Karen & Delon

On Sunday I’ll be spending the day with Karen & Delon for their wedding at the beautiful Newhall. They both live and work in New York, so since they booked me last year, we’ve skyped, emailed and back in June I was lucky enough to fly out to Prague to capture their Pre Wedding Shoot. In the run up to the shoot, Karen and I planned some favourite locations around this beautiful city that they’d like to include and a plan started to take shape. Prague is one of my favourite cities and a popular pre wedding shoot destination for couples from all over the world. Like any major tourist destination it’s heaving with tourists, so to be able to capture photos without thousands of tourists in them, we met just after sunrise at 5.30am and apart from dodging other couples and their photographers, we wandered around St Charles Bridge, Mala Strana district and Prague Castle. I can’t wait to see them again for their wedding this weekend. In the mean time here are some of my favourites. If you think you’d like a destination pre wedding shoot in Prague or any other European City, let me know.

Curradine Barns Wedding Photography – Becky & Matt

I’ve been lucky enough to photograph lots of weddings at Curradine Barns in Worcestershire, over the last twelve months. All of which I’ll be blogging over the next few months. Kicking off with Becky & Matt’s last year. It was so lovely to spend the day with these guys and great to see some familiar faces, as I’d photographed one of the Bridesmaids, Sophie’s wedding a few years ago. The girls started the morning with some of my industry favourites, Hair by Natalie Bishop – The Bridal Hair Specialists and make up by Rebecca Frances Becky looked amazing in her Pronovias gown from The Wedding Club

Wedding Photography at The Rectory Hotel

I first met James and Claire back in 2013, as they were guests at the wedding of Natasha and Gareth. Fast forward three years to 19th August 2016 and we arrive at The Rectory Hotel in Crudwell, for their own wedding.

I regularly photograph weddings in the Cotswolds but hadn’t photographed at The Rectory Hotel before, I’ve been missing out! It’s a charming boutique hotel that gives you that welcome, relaxed feeling, I really hope I get to go back. Claire & James wedding was intimate, relaxed and all about family and The Rectory Hotel was a perfect choice for exactly this. Two of their three Sons, Oscar and Theo played a big part in the wedding, with Theo, aged nine, doing a fantastic job as an Usher and Oscar, aged 5, as Pageboy. Rupert, just 4 months old was content to just chill out, watch his Brothers do all the work and be adored by grandparents and guests alike. Claire looked incredible by any standards but the fact she’d only had a baby four months ago, is Mum to Theo and Oscar too, planned a wedding as well as being a hugely talented Graphic Designer, deserves a round of applause. She designed not only the invitations herself, but all of the handwritten signs, the super cool original table plan and the name cards. She also spent an age collecting vintage fabric to make the table napkins, which added such a lovely personal touch to the tables. I think she deserves a medal! Her Mum, who runs The Cotswolds Flower Studio created all the beautiful blooms, so talent clearly runs in the family.

It was such a pleasure to photograph this wedding and spend the day with such lovely families. Here are some of my favourites from their day.
