A Unique Chinese Wedding at the Spectacular Medieval Warwick Castle in Warwickshire

When I was approached to shoot Mengyi & Yu's Chinese wedding at the spectacular medieval Warwick castle in Warwickshire I jumped at the chance! I've shot Chinese weddings before but never at a castle so how could I resist this cool combination! The day started with bride and groom prep. I first met Mengyi and her mum in the hotel for hair and makeup. Yu was also getting ready in another room downstairs with his parents so I went from one to the other snapping as I went! Once the final touches were finished including an important necklace for Mengyi we made our way to the castle for the ceremony. Despite the grand hall being pretty dark it was perfect for atmospheric images. Thankfully my Nikon D750s have awesome low light capabilities ( all hail Nikon! ) The ceremony contained elements of Chinese tradition such as the passing of the rings between the guests, tea making and lighting of candles. After the ceremony we made our way outside for some pictures where we had fun exploring the grounds before dinner was served in the magnificent dining room! It was certainly a unique and memorable wedding day! 

Ash & Alex share their wedding day love at Old Albanians RFC in St Albans, Hertfordshire

" Thank you so much for all you did on our special day and for being friendly and up for a laugh! People kept commenting afterwards how subtle you were with the photography and how they loved the non-obtrusive style - just what we wanted! Can’t wait to properly look through all the photos  thanks so much again! "

After having a FaceTime chat with Ash & Alex a few months before their big day I knew they were going to be a cool couple to photograph and their wedding day would be full of fun...I was proved right, what an amazing wedding! I met up with Alex at the Queens Head pub in St Albans which very handily was positioned right outside St Leonards church where the ceremony was happening. After the service and awesome confetti shots we then jumped in our cars and popped over to the Old Albanian RFC just ten minutes down the road for the reception and evening shenanigans. The guests couldn't fail to be entertained with crazy golf and games of poker to enjoy plus it meant loads of things for me to photograph, just how I like it! Ash and Alex were so friendly and made me feel part of the gang so a big thank you to you both! 

Becky & Harry - Super Relaxed Documentary Wedding at Hampton Manor in Hampton in Arden

We’re extremely pleased with the photos, they’re exactly what we were after!. We’ll not hesitate to recommend you in our friendship group!

A hot summers day combined with a super cool couple made for one heck of a great wedding! It was my first time shooting at Hampton Manor in Hampton-in-Arden and I hope it won't be my last. Bridal prep took place in one of the stunning bedrooms at the hotel. The huge windows were perfect for capturing great candid shots of Becky and the girls getting ready. Harry was a stones throw away at the White Lion pub across the road. There were so many great spots around the venue for couple shots including a very rustic greenhouse and barn! Becky and Harry were perfect to work with and happy to go with the flow and let me do my thing! I was so lucky that their family and friends that attended this awesome wedding were full of fun and character. Theres always great documentary shots to be had if the guests are up for the party! Thanks to you both and best of luck for the future! 

Anjna & Robbie - Sunny Summer wedding at Orchardleigh Walled Garden in Frome

Wow what a scorcher of a day it was when Anjna & Robbie got hitched at the amazing Orchardleigh Walled Garden in Frome ! The day contained elements of Indian tradition, amazing colours, blue skies, crazy dancing and tears of joy.. all the ingredients needed for a great wedding! My style is to look for and capture the candid moments that are gone in a blink of an eye, thankfully there were so many during Anjna & Robbies wedding I was spoilt for choice. Congratulations to you both! 

Emma & Mark - Outdoor Wedding Reception in Beautiful Bath

Kevin! The photos are incredible, we cannot get over how wonderful they all are and how much we love them.
Thank you so much, you captured all of the little moments that we wanted and I honestly didn't even notice any of them being taken - it all feels like a complete dream!
We keep going over and over them - we LOVE THEM!
Honestly we can't thank you enough, you were so wonderful to work with and all of our friends and family commented on how friendly and great you were and are also blown away by the photos.
Is there anywhere (facebook/google etc) that you would like us to leave a testimonial for you?
Thank you for sending the USB and hopefully speak to you very soon - we will be sure to recommend you to any newly engaged couples we know!

Emma & Mark

I couldn't have wished for a more friendly, welcoming couple than Emma & Mark. I started the day at Emmas parents house in Combe Hay, Bath and was immediately offered a tea!  :-) After shooting the girls chatting and getting ready I nipped down the road to see Mark and the boys in the pub before waiting at the church for the guests and bridal party to arrive! Everything was so close with the marquee a two minute walk away up the hill from the church.

The speeches were hilarious, it's a part of the day that I always enjoy. I love hearing all the stories about how the couple met and the risky jokes..always at the grooms expense! :-) It's also a part of the day that lends itself to some great expression shots, Perfect candid photography! 

Becky & Daff celebrate their wedding in style at Stone Barn in the Cotswolds

" We loved the photos and of course had trouble choosing our favourites! We loved how unobtrusive and easy to work with you were on the day and how quickly you managed to send us our photos. We have already sent them out to all our family and friends to enjoy too!
Thank you again "

After photographing Becky and Daff on their pre wedding shoot a couple of months ago I couldn't wait to shoot their wedding at the awesome Stone Barn wedding venue in the Cotswolds. Bridal pre was at Bourton on the Water, a delightful chocolate box village just outside Cheltenham. It was certainly a wedding I won't forget in a while, the main reason being I've never seen a bride and groom grab their guitars and entertain the guests by rocking out a few tunes..Amazing!! :-)

Mengyi & Yu - Asian Engagement Shoot in Cheltenham the heart of the Cotswolds

It was fab to meet up with the lovely Mengyi & Yu for their asian engagement shoot in Cheltenham. We chose the majestic Pittville pump rooms to start the shoot and made our way around Pittville lake before heading up to Leckhampton Hill to take in some great landscape views across Cheltenham and the Cotswolds. Mengyi came prepared with two traditional Asian dresses as it's a very important Chinese tradition. I can't wait to shoot their wedding at the amazing Warwick castle in a couple of months time!
