Cripps Barn wedding

This was my first Cripps Barn wedding, a lovely old Cotswold stone barn near Bibury.  A mild winter wedding starting at The New Inn, not to far from the venue. Made to feel at home from the outset, my job was to capture the preparations going on around me. Once Kate's dad (Dusty) had an emotional first glimpse at his stunning daughter, this was my cue to head over to capture Chris and his groomsmen enjoying the great location. One I hope to be back at sometime this year.

A lovely ceremony followed with laughs a plenty, which pretty much continued right the way through the day. I was even caught out during the speeches, Dusty asked me to stand up for the party and gave a me nice mention. Very kind! Caught off guard I had no speech prepared and hid behind my camera. The evening continued with joyous guests, singing dancing and even managing some sparkler photographs to get some Cotswolds fresh air. This wedding really was great fun to photograph, especially witnessing some top moves on the dance floor. I'm pretty sure the party continued long after I had gone, thanks to the super talented The Roaming Revue.

For the photographers out there. Most of the photos were taken with the Nikon D750 camera with a 35mm and 85mm lenses. The first dance with a 24-70mm lens and an SB910 flash gun

Kate and Chris Thank you once again for letting me be part of your special day good luck for the future.

Manor By The Lake Cheltenham

Manor By The Lake Cheltenham, a wonderful array of colours for a Cotswolds wedding. I met Laura and Alex at the wedding showcase at the Manor, instantly I could tell how relaxed they were and how much fun their wedding would be, I wasn't disappointed. With Laura looking amazing and the bridesmaids a close second.

The morning started for myself at Laura's house, all I will say about this is what a fun loving bunch of cool ladies. A friend of mine Rob ( one to watch) who has been second shooting for me this year had the pleasure of capturing the groom prep. Next it was on to the beautiful Holy Trinity Badgeworth where a proud dad walked his happy daughter down the aisle for the ceremony. Followed by a short car journey to the Manor, courtesy of Satin and Lace Wedding Cars.
The picturesque lake gave us a lovely background for some early evening shots. Soon followed by the craziness that is the bouquet throw, again proving how much fun these ladies were. (see photos) Everyone else made their way into the main hall for the evening party. The room as always looked fantastic with flowers, funky lights and table decor. More antics then followed, I'll let the pictures tell the story.
A special thank you to Laura and Alex for choosing me to photograph their wedding day.
