Oliver & Holly's Wedding - 26th Aug '07 - Close Hotel, Tetbury
This super Ozzie couple must be used to fine weather and their wedding day was no exception. What a great venue the Close Hotel is with elegant rooms, a chapel on site and fine dining to finish. This was a well organised, medium sized wedding that ran effortlessly with photography to reflect it.

I often really like a very simple shot and this is it from Holly & Olly's wedding. The clean composition using the addition of a third subject and the framed print in this scene really lift the photo from a standard shot of Holly's sister & mum doing some final makeup touches.
This was a great room to take photos in - loads of natural light and plenty of space. Beneath is the untouched bridal suite, left for my pure photographic pleasure!
Inspired by this cake positioning, I'll be posting a 'wedding cake' blog shortly as far too often venues tuck your beautiful cake away into a dingy corner. Thank you Close Hotel for giving this cake a great spot of it's own.
Ohh this photo. As you've probably seen Holly is a beautiful slim bride, yet dresses can be mighty difficult to button when it's 5 mins to go and 28 degrees!
Olly was a cool customer. A round of golf in the morning then zip along for his wedding in the afternoon.
The on site Chapel - small and quaint.
Olly is a big nanny's boy really.
As you'll see from these last few shots we got a lot out of the small venue with a great variety of bridal portraits. My personal fav being the one above.
