Gloucestershire Wedding Photographer - Dumbleton Hall

Adam & Julie had their Gloucestershire Wedding at Dumbleton Hall in the Christmas holiday between Santa's visit & the New Years celebrations.   Speaking with the venue it's in fact a really popular week to get married as they had five consecutive weddings booked in that week!

Adam & Julie arranged their wedding with fairly short notice (by some couples standards)...although it was probably best to move quickly once Adam proposed as that part of their relationship had taken some time to get around to!  The wedding day all came together really well, albeit that Julie's request for snow & sheep in the grounds of Dumbleton Hall didn't materialise :-(  Still, you can't have everything, after all it was an exceptionally mild December instead........handy for photos outside right?

So, here's a few photos from the wedding day with many more on my Facebook page.

So which bouquet is biggest - the biggest one is the bride bouquet right?

Wedding necklace with real bling.  Yep real diamonds, but alas not Julie's own, in fact rented for the occasion.

The much deliberate 'flower in the brides hair'.  Should it even go in her hair, does it look right, how far up should it go, is that the right angle, what about the clip.....can you see the clip!?   I could go on :-)

Yep the flower in your hair looks great.

All cool before the brides entrance.....

.....but a little biting of the bottom lip just to show a few nerves!

I'm not a fan of taking fake 'signing of the register' photos....preferring to shoot the real thing.  It's nearly always expected though and on this occasion it does look nice.....compared to many other occasions when we're squeezed into the back room of a church, with a notice board and fire extinguisher in the background for real wow factor!

Reception drinks were held in the lobby at Dumbleton Hall.

Inside at Dumbteton Hall set for the wedding breakfast.

Wedding details with a christmas theme.  Frosted baubles, candles & sparkly diamonds.   

What's going on....I hear you ask?  This is drinking games to play during the speeches.  Select a chosen word (say Love, Today, Brides name, Grooms name, etc), write it on a post-it note and stick it to a guests forehead. Then during the speeches when that word is said you need to drink one finger - simple.  Hopefully by the time it comes around to the best mans speech, guests will be properly drunk and laugh at just about anything. 

Props were produce during the best mans speech.

Wedding Photographer Recommendation - Tuscany, Italy

I really enjoyed the wedding of Darren & Suzi that I photographed last May in Tuscany (who wouldn't hey!).  It certainly sticks with me as a memorable moment for a wedding photographer and always brings a smile to my face when one of their photos passes across my screen saver.

It was lovely therefore to get this wedding photographer recommendation from them.  Not only did it remind me of their fabulous wedding in Tuscany, but Darren pretty much nailed why I like taking wedding photos.  It's not 'really' about the details, the hype, the extravaganza, but the real people who make up your day. :-)

"You can only truly appreciate the value in somebody’s skill and passion in their results. For Matt this is never more true.
Suzi and I are forever grateful for how Matt has managed to capture our amazing wedding day. His energy and effort to understand the finer points of why you spend so much time in planning and coordinating a perfect day is rewarded by his results. He takes time to understand what a wedding is all about. The people."
