Congratulations to the Robert and Kelly as they celebrated their St Donat’s Castle wedding.
We started the day with Kelly and Robert as they got ready in two different locations, Robert got ready in the Vale Resort Hotel and Kelly got ready at their home, about 20 minutes from the venue.
Robert then made his way to St Illtyd’s Church in Llantwit Major and Kelly, although a little late, arrived with her bridesmaids and bridal party.
Being escorted with her father, the couple were married in the church and celebrated by heading to St Donat’s Castle and straight into a confetti line.
After a few formal and informal photos by the quite wonderful Nick Murray Photography the couple headed into their wedding breakfast. After three courses, we were treated to three wonderful and heart warming speeches.
After a few evening guests arrived, whilst the couple we down on the beach, they then made their way onto the dance floor for their first dance.
A wonderful day. Thank you so much for asking us to capture it for you.
Set in the glorious surroundings in the middle of the Cotswolds we were delighted to have been chosen for capture Amy and Will's Stone Barn Wedding.
Starting the day, we met up with the Bride and Groom as they both got ready in the same Hotel, the Cotswolds Gateway Hotel, Amy in room 7 and Will in room 14. They both got ready in a nice calm atmosphere, where the other big topic of the day was the weather, specifically the heat. Today was set to be the hottest day of the year, with temperatures reaching 32°C, almost 90°Fahrenheit.
When Will was ready and helped Usher the transport into position, just outside the Hotel, he and his Best Men and Ushers and a couple of close friends went in the Limo to the venue. Champagne was served and there was lots of merriment all-round.
He arrived to be greeted by family and friends all with hand fans to keep themselves cool. Meanwhile the Limo headed back to collect Amy and her Bridal Party. Will, headed outside under the arbour and got into position and waited to see his beautiful Bride.
Amy arrived and walked down the grassy aisle with her Father. After a few tears, vows, promises and a reading, the couple were wed and they celebrated with Champagne and a confetti line.
After a few formal photos, the couple then made their way into their wedding breakfast, where Beef was served and each table was assigned a carver - to much merriment. After the two-course meal was cleared, we then headed into the speeches. Again a few tears and poignant words were heartfelt to all.
The couple then headed into the evening with friends and family as they took to the dance floor and sang to each other their first dance.
Thank you for letting us capture your day!

Wow guys. Amazing day, lots of friends and family with glorious British sunshine for Gary and Jen’s Outdoor Cripps Barn Wedding.
Jonathan and I started the day with the preparations as Gary got ready with his friends and parents at The Swan Hotel in Bibury. Jen organised a surprise mini for Gary to drive to the barn (i assume this was to make sure he arrived on time(!)). We could help ourselves so we attaching of our GoPro Hero 4 to the back of the car to get a time-lapse sequence of Gary and his best man driving. Meanwhile Jen was getting ready in The New Inn, Coln St Aldwyns with her friends and parents were not too far away either. Gary mentioned to me before the day that Jen was to receive a gift that might make her “hopefully slightly emotional” – he succeeded.
Once everyone had recovered, it was time for the ceremony. Lots of joyful tears and after a couple of readings Jen and Gary were wed. After a few Pimms and canopies, formal photos were taken by the quite brilliant Adam Drake Photography all the guests went inside and we were treated to the Grooms speech before the meal. After the guests did their own carving with beautifully cooked beef, we had the Father of the Bride give a speech and then onto the Best man. Then, rather unexpectedly the bridesmaids decided to do a rap for the happy couple – but we will leave this for the couple to view – yes I know I am a tease for just adding the intro in the Preview.
After all the formalities were done, we then went outside and enjoyed the sun and the beautiful meadow at the back of the barn.
Then the couple led their guests back inside for their first dance.
Great day guys, thank you for allowing us to capture your day for you.
A wonderful day at Ellenborough Park in Cheltenham for Sarah and Lyle.
I started the day with Sarah as she got ready with her bridesmaids and both the Mums. It's was probably the most relaxed bridal prep I have ever witnessed. Gifts being handed out, tears shed and most of the ladies lost it when Sarah revealed the dress to her Father. A touching moment I was thrilled to have caught.
Meanwhile Lyle was getting ready close by and once he was ready he headed to the bar to meet his guests. All the while Ruth from Finesse Planning was finishing off the wonderful decoration internally.
Howard was the Master of Ceremonies and ushered guests to the ceremony and he did a Stirling role all day in gathering, people moving as well as adding an extra element of formality to Sarah and Lyles day.
When everyone was in position Sarah and her Father entered the room with her bridesmaids and the bagpiper who was first.
After a short ceremony and a wonderful reading, the couple were wed and celebrated by having a kiss.
A very very long confetti line was created by Bex (Fulton Photography) and I and the newlyweds were showered by predominantly white and yellow confetti.
There were lots of nods to a traditional Scottish wedding customs and sipping whisky was apparent all the day through.
After the wedding breakfast we were treated to 8 speeches (where the Groom was ‘roasted’ thoroughly), immediately after these had finished the photographer and I rushed outside to capture the Bride and Groom with the most gorgeous sunset that the Cotswolds have to offer.
The evening was then capped off by singing and dancing and there was even a Groom and Mother of the Bride dance - always nice to see.
I have know Tom and Amy for about 4 years now and as well as Tom being a regular second shooter for me with my wedding and corporate filming, he is a very good friend, so it was an utter honour that Tom and Amy wanted me to capture their stunning wedding at the wonderful Berkeley Castle.
It was a day full of joy and happiness as Tom and Amy tied the knot in the beautiful Chapel in the grounds and then had their reception within the Castle itself.
Jonny was also there on Photography duties and he caught some incredible images too.
A wonderful day, I hope i have done your day justice.
