Wedding Photographer Gloucestershire - Teepee wedding

I'd not been to the village of Ripple in Gloucestershire before and what a quint place it is. Nick & Jenny had their Wedding ceremony at the Church there, then went on to Jenny's parent's home for a garden reception with a difference.  Not a typical marquee, but teepees!  Not just one or two details but a plethora of colour and artistic styles.

The only thing that could let the day down was the weather.......and the forecast wasn't exactly 28 degrees with blue skies (it was mid September after all).  Amazingly though, despite the potential of rain the day wasn't hindered in the slightest, it stayed bright for literally the whole day and the wedding couldn't have been better (what do weather forecasters know anyway?).

Anyhow, here are a few photos from the day, with more over on my FB page.







So I came home from this wedding and said to my wife - "we need to keep some old baked bean cans and put flowers in them".  How good do these look?



'Trouble' the cat.  How cute is he/she?




Wedding details (flowers) and a wedding itinerary.



Jenny is just one of those beautiful people in life.  I love this expression.





A quick bite of banana before heading downstairs to greet the awaiting crowd!











I love it when friends from the local village parish come along to weddings.



If only the Vicar had been standing next to me and not in the way.  Still not a bad shot ;-)

























What a fantastic spot for the drinks reception.  In amongst this garden woodland, with the fabulous sail shades providing a sense of cover.


Jenny has a very creative touch and made her own wedding details in many vibrant colours.  



This wedding band were brilliant.  They really suited the atmosphere of Jenny & Nick's country wedding.  Look them up if you're after a Gypsy Jazz Band.  (www.parisswingquartet.co.uk)

Birtsmorton Court Wedding Photographer

Just one from my Birtsmorton Court Wedding at the weekend....



It may have rained earlier in the day, but as wedding photographer, I knew Birtsmorton Court could produce a great sunset.

Family Portraits Cheltenham

Autumnal family portraits in Cheltenham

Having had two weddings to photograph this weekend, Sunday natural needed to be a day for relaxing.  What's better than Sunday lunch, followed by a walk in the park?  Well, ideally a walk in the park without the rain shower, but you can't have it all :-)





Pittville Park is great for scooting around (super smooth).......apparently Ali used to roller skate around here as a child too.


The wonderful Pittville Pump Room.







A mix of sun and rain does usually bring one good thing though - a super sunset across Cheltenham on our return. 

If you're looking for some family portraits in Cheltenham please drop me a line.


Gloucestershire Wedding Photographer - Kingscote Barn

Gloucestershire Wedding photographer - Kingscote Barn - Justin & Carly

I'd not met Justin and Carly prior to their wedding day so it was lovely to put a face to a name when we caught up at bridal preps in Thornbury.  The girls were all very excited about Carly's wedding day and all helped out with hair and make-up.  It wasn't long before we were off to Thornbury Church in glorious sunshine, then onwards to Kingscote Barn......with weather of a little less certainty ;-)













There wasn't a dry eye in the house when Carly put on her wedding dress.


Bling wedding shoes - apparently from Primark.  Nice find.





Walking down the aisle wasn't exactly as straight forward as Carly had perhaps imagined.   A few tears and a couple of tissues later....she finally got to the front though. 

















It's nice to see a guest not taking a picture and instead interacting with the wedding couple.  Whoop whoop.



Possibly one of my favourite photos from the day.  It's great to catch 'a look' and I think this has that plus a few extra elements too (mum, bridesmaid) - lovely.



Check out the enthusiasm of this kid throwing confetti - how excitable is he?






Great wedding details at Kingscote Barn - if only there had been a jar of sweeties with my name on it though?





Justin & Carly had a magician during the wedding drinks reception....he certainly stunned a few people.
