St Audries Park Wedding Photographer
On Friday I had the pleasure of being asked by Melissa & Remmy to be their wedding photographer at St Audries Park. As they are not heading off on a honeymoon just yet I decided to quickly edit one image from their special day so they could get to see it as quickly as possible before I work my way through the full day.
Pretty soon after the ceremony the weather decided to take a turn for the worse and the rain set in, although later into the evening as it cleared up the sky graced us with this great display and I ran off to find Melissa & Remmy for a quick photograph.
I can’t wait to edit the full set of pictures from this wedding.
A Pre Wedding photoshoot along Gloucester Road
I met up with Tom and Elle last year at a wedding fayre where they told about their plans for their wedding day and also of a slight nervousness at the thought of being photographed so I suggested a pre wedding shoot in Bristol at a location that they would feel comfortable with. When they suggested a walk along Gloucester Road as the location for the shoot I was quite exited at the prospect as there’s a real mix of locations. Here’s a selection of images from our little walk so feel free to have a look through and leave a comment or two.
After the park we made our way down to the bottom of Gloucester Road before making our way back up. Gloucester Road was one of my first introductions to Bristol when I first drove down to Bristol many years ago and it’s a real eye opener with its mixture of buildings and local shops mixed in with the bright and colourful graffiti
Homewood Park Wedding Photography
Laura and Craig got in touch with me to be their Bath Wedding Photographer after a bizarre set of messages through twitter. You may recall I photographed them last month for their pre-wedding photoshoot as part of the run up to their gorgeous wedding at Homewood Park in Bath and what a lovely location they had chosen. In the run up to the wedding the weather had taken a turn for the worse and we were being blessed with some horrendous periods of rain but in the morning of the wedding the sun decided to make an appearance although there were several occasions when we did have to dash for cover but on the whole the weather held for Laura, Craig and all their guests to have a wonderful time on their special day.
It was my first time at Homewood Park and I must say what a great venue it is, not only is it a lovely building in a great location but the staff were extremely helpful and most welcoming too.
Anyway, back to the job in hand – here is a selection of my favourite images from the day so I hope you’ll enjoy looking through them as much as I enjoyed photographing them. As always feel free to leave a little love for Laura & Craig.
As always I started the day off by photographing the bridal preparations as they were in full flow. I don’t think each member of the bridal party needed reminding of their roles but just in case it had been embellished on to the robe just in case.
I never like to rush my couples but always like to try and capture a short period of time with them after the ceremony and once they’ve had chance to see their friends and family. It’s also a nice time for the newlyweds to have a bit of a breather away from everyone while I capture a few portraits of them. This next series was captured in about 10 minutes before we had to dash back inside while the rain hit.
If you are looking for a someone to photograph your wedding at Homewood Park or need a Bath Wedding Photographer then please get in touch and it would be great to hear about your plans.
Pre Wedding Photography in Bristol
It was a nice surprise to receive a phone call from Melissa last month to see if I was available to be her Somerset Wedding Photographer as she and Remmy had recently set a date and are due to get married in June at the wonderful St Audries Park. I’d met Melissa a year or so back when I photographed a wedding supplier and obviously made a lasting impression as she remembered me and made the call – must be my shy and retiring personality!!
As with the majority of my couples I suggested a pre wedding photoshoot so we could grab a coffee, have a little chat about the plans for the wedding day and then go off and grab a few pictures so that when it comes to the big day the bride & groom are a lot more relaxed at the thought of having their special day documented and are also used to having me around.
We decided to meet up on Park Street in the centre of Bristol then take a short stroll around the nearby Brandon Hill, home to the towering Cabot Tower and I tried my best to make the couple feel at ease while I captured this lovely couple in this great location. So without further ado here is a selection of some of my favourite images from the photoshoot. Feel free to leave a comment and show a little love for Melissa and Remmy.

A Wedding at The Chinese Church In London
I was having a little spring clean on my hard drives and came across this wedding that I was lucky enough to assist with photographing. I had been asked by Alex Beckett if I would like to assist him with photographing Diana and David’s wedding in London so obviously I said yes. We arranged for me to go to the Chinese Church in London where the preparations for the ceremony were taking place – the church was busily being prepared for the ceremony, friends and family were getting the buffet ready, an aunt was arranging the flowers, the band were setting up and there was a great feel of community that I hadn’t really encountered before.
This was also my first experience of a wedding in London, being a Bristol Wedding Photographer I felt pretty well adjusted to city life but London really is something different. This wedding started in the Chinese Church In London, made a pitstop at Holland Park before reaching it’s final destination at the Millenium Gloucester Hotel, it was a truly manic day and great to be a part of.
Here is a selection of some of my own favourites from the day, to see more you can always head over to Alex’s blog.
