Cheltenham Wedding Photographer - Pittville Pump Room

Philip & Rebecca held their wedding in Cheltenham at the Pittville Pump Room.  Being a Cheltenham wedding photographer you can't ask for a simpler day than one on your doorstep at places you know well.   Not only have I photographed several weddings at the Pittville Punmp Room, but I'd also shot some wedding portraits at The Montpellier Chapter earlier in the year.

Philip and Rebecca weren't keen on many wedding portraits (or lovey dovey stuff as I think we put it), the day was more about documenting their wedding and the guests they'd invited.  There were certainly quite a few children who always entertain, although they did come with a very camera shy mum.  Needless to say I'm sure she made it into some photos anyhow.

It was a good job I spoke with rebecca before her wedding day as I'd had information they'd be at Hotel Du Vin.....alas, that changed and bridal preps did indeed start at The Montellier Chapter.  Thankfully being a Cheltenham Wedding Photographer, I knew these two places weren't exactly far apart.

Did I mention the bridesmaids camera shy mum?

Fantastic blue eyes huh?

Mr Tubmle....the perfect way to entertain little bridesmaids.

Rebecca's choice of red ad green wedding flowers was quite striking, and certainly looked good in the sink against black tiles!

Just not quite tall enough.

There were quite a few children at the wedding.......some chatting to grandma......

......some dancing......(and one hiding!)

...some having cuddles.....

.....and some climbing trees!

Philips Dad has lightening quick reactions when wedding hat's pop off!

It all went quiet in the park around dinner time, which gave me a chance to get a photo of Pittville Pump Room without anyone in it, before I headed off home.

If you're looking for a Cheltenham wedding photographer, then please check out my new website and get in touch.  I regularly work at Pittville Pump Room and live only 10 minutes away, so it's easy to stop by if you're in Gloucestershire making a visit.

How old is Matt Davis?

'twas my birthday today and I reached the ripe old age of 35.......although Daisy will have you to believe I'm 45.  I'll have you know though, it's not due to the wrinkles or because I asked for swim goggles, but the fact she's just learning her  BIG numbers - phew!

Anyway, as with all the best birthdays it started with a lie in, followed by great food and fine company.......plus a yummy cake.

Gloucestershire Wedding Photographer - Matara

James and Gemma had their wedding at Matara in Gloucestershire.  It's a fabulous wedding venue, with loads of options in the gardens for photos.....which thankfully we had some opportunity to do as the weather was perfect.  Gemma and James both work in the film/TV industry, one as a make-up artist, the other Producer/Director (I think that's right), so are used to being on the other side of a camera.  They took some coaching, but thankfully we produced some great shots.

The main house at Matara - or as my wife puts it "the house she'd like".  I'll keep saving!

It's not often I shoot weddings with 7 bridesmaids....and all with a different dress design.

This may need explaining, so if I tell you it's mouthwash you'll probably get the idea!

Gemma's sister works as a set designer (is that correct?) so had a big influence on the day and helped  style the wedding.  This room at Matara is vast and easily catered for the 140 guests they had seated for the ceremony.

Straight after the civil ceremony Gemma and James headed out into the oriental garden for a Jewish blessing....where apparently James had been most looking forward to stamping on the glass!

Fans can be very effective at removing confetti from your hair.

James' dad was my assistant photographer for the speeches.

After speeches, as the sun began to set, we snuck back out for a final couple of relaxed portraits.

Even the little courtyard garden at Matara's main house is fantastic for photos.
