Chavenage House Wedding Photography - Sam and Lizzie

Sam and Lizzie - 27th Sept 2008

A few days on and here's the slideshow to accompany the photo on my recent blog beneath.

What a super day we had last weekend, hot again! Wahooo. Thankfully this was a huge difference compared to the last time I was at Chavenage House to shoot a wedding as it absolutely poured down... I even wore my wellies that day!

So here's a peak at some of the photos taken.

Pics & slideshow below >>>






Great little entrance to the Church of Annunciation in Woodchester



Apparently it's very hard to get a tear out of her sister - so pleased we just about managed t!


Lizzie's daughter missing all the action sleeping in the back pews!



Chavenage House for the wedding reception


".......ummm, I'm inside, and everyone else appears to be outside?"



That'll be a very big tree at Chavenage, or some small guests?




And for the wedding slideshow.....

I should have said a little more about Lizzie in this post, so now's the chance having received this great email from her. She's been one of my fab cleints that make me laugh out loud every time she sends me an email...and this was no exception.


So I was looking at the blog last night, and there I am, in full gurner glory, and I'm thinking, bloody hell, I was worried I wouldn't make the blog at all, and instead there I am, in bits, total facial gurn!! (Can I just say at this point that the thought of not making the blog worried me greatly! Bizarre bride moment or what!!!)

So all day I'm thinking, gonna have to reply with a witty comeback, like when I said be kind regarding the grizzling Lizzie......that's not quite what I meant!!... and then Sam announces we are upgraded to a slideshow................ and bloody hell, I'm back to grizzling again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What I am getting at, is that it is just bloody excellent! Sitting and looking at the slideshow, and all the emotions (lets face it, I have a lot!!) of Saturday are back with me, so I am back to manically smiling and crying again. And that is exactly what I wanted. Couldn't have asked for more.

Half an hour passes whilst I bathe the children and Sam e-mails your blog link to everyone (so if there is a lot of traffic, sorry!) when he finally checks my e-mail and there it is, the gallery of all of it. And I'm back to bawling again!

So my feedback is that I am very very happy, and you can quote me if you like. And I hope you weren't traumatised by getting 'upstairs' with Caroline Lowesley-Williams......................!!! Nice family, a little eccentric perhaps!! Or by our friends, who we believe from the bottle count had consumed more than a lot of Champagne each!!

A lot of comments were made about your ability to be all over the place all the time, not least from my entrance to the church, which you managed to shoot from all four corners!!! Super powers!!!! You have managed to capture every bit of our day without the formality that I dreaded... I reckon that is very clever indeed.

I am very happy, worried about my ability to whittle down all those fab photos to 100, and looking forward to telling anyone who will listen about my fab photographer, highly recommended!!!

Kind Regards,

Lizzie D.

Gloucestershire Wedding Photographer - Tears of joy

Sorting through last weekends wedding photos and loved this one. Just had to post it.....

Pasta Parcels

Now a quick warning, this post is nothing but a ramble about today's funny moment with Daisy. There will be no photo, just words, so please switch off now if that doesn't float your boat.

At lunch today Ali told Daisy that we'd be having Pasta Parcels for dinner tonight when she gets home from work. Daisy interpreted it slightly differently. She apparently thinks we're playing Pass The Parcel when Ali gets home from work! Brilliant.

Wedding Photography - What to ask your photographer?

As part of a new series of useful information for brides planning their wedding day, I'm writing topics to fit the heading of 'Wedding Information' (which you can see in the categories tab on the Right Hand Side of the main page).

They will be varied (and no doubt a little random) but hopefully build a good resource pool for couples to use as a checklist when planning a wedding. I appreciate magazines 'offer' this advice, but the 21 year old editor who writes the articles probably cares little about an actual wedding, has been to very few weddings (if any) and certainly doesn't see the whole process from start to finish. That's apparently my qualification for writing this! LOL. (It's certainly not my handle of grammar & English language, so bear with me on that part).

This first post was inspired by another site where I read these comments and knew they echoed my own thoughts, which would certainly be of use to any bride (and groom for that matter) who are looking to book a photographer.

Often when I meet with a couple they tell me " I'm not too sure what to ask! You're the first photographer we've talked to."

Here are 5 P's that will help you select the right photographer.

1. Photography - Do you like the photographer's style, range, quality, experience, etc?
2. Personality - It's gonna be a long day unless we're a good fit...
3. Professionalism - Does the photographer have a good grasp of contracts, punctuality, communication, etc.
4. Products - Does the photographer offer the albums, prints, negatives, online proofing, etc that you are seeking?
5. Pricing - Is it in the budget? If not, can we shift our priorities to fit it in the budget?

I say to all my couples (and truly believe this) they need to find the right photographer for them and this is a great evaluation tool. A meeting is also a two way process, you're 'vetting' me and I'm finding out about you guys. I'm looking for a couple who want my style, fit with my personality, appreciate professionalism, want the products I offer, and (of course) can afford my prices.

My aim is to clearly communicate what I offer and ensure this fits with your requirements. Simple.
