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! 

Emma & Marks Spring Pre Wedding Shoot at Crickley Hill in the Cotswolds

" They are AMAZING! Thank you so much, we absolutely love them and its incredible how quickly you had them edited and ready to go. Really looking forward to the day, thanks again for yesterday we both feel so much more relaxed now"  Emma & Mark

Loved meeting up with Emma & Mark this weekend at Crickley Hill in the Cotswolds. It's a great location for couples to have a leisurely stroll and take in the amazing views across Gloucestershire including the Malvern Hills in the distance. It's also perfect if you're slightly nervous about having your picture taken as it's never too busy and includes loads of locations for cool pictures. I'm really looking forward to shooting Emma & Marks wedding this summer in beautiful Bath. I started my photographic career at the Bath Chronicle newspaper many years ago so the place holds many fond memories! 

Anjna & Robbie - Sunset Pre Wedding Shoot at Crickley Hill Country Park in the Cotswolds

I was hoping for great weather on Anjna & Robbies pre wedding shoot and boy did we get it! The location was Crickley Hill Country Park on the edge of Cheltenham and in the heart of the Cotswolds. Having moved the start time slightly earlier to 4.30pm I really wanted to capture the sunset and knew we would have great views on top of the hill. My first shot of the session was probably my favourite! The rich warm light casts a magical glow across the whole image as the pathway leads your eye up to Anjna & Robbie gazing out towards the spectacular Malvern Hills and their future together! 

Becky & Daff Pre Wedding Shoot In The Heart of the Cotswolds

"The photos are fantastic!!!! Loved the colours and how you managed to find some stormy skies too! Thanks for editing them so quickly. Now we will just have the hard decision on which photos go on the invites!!" - Becky & Daff

Last weekend I hooked up with Becky & Daff for their pre wedding shoot. We decided on Leckhampton Hill in the heart of the gorgeous Cotswolds countryside! The views from the top of the hill are incredible and if you haven't been I would thoroughly recommend a visit. We parked in a quarry car park which offered countless photo opportunities that I couldn't resist. It did mean scrambling up and down rock faces which Becky was totally up for! These are the brides I love, willing to go the extra mile for a great picture!

Whether you've just become engaged or have been engaged for a while I would always recommend a pre wedding shoot before the big day arrives. It's a great way to put you at ease and give you an idea what your wedding day photography will be like! Cant wait to shoot Becky & Daffs wedding this summer!! 

Lydia & Ed on their colourful autumn engagement shoot in the cotswolds

Autumn is my favourite time of the year to photograph happy couples! The colours and tones are incredible and you can't beat wrapping up in a wooly hat and gloves! A few weeks ago I spent a fun couple of hours with Lydia and Ed in the medieval town of Tewkesbury situated in the Cotswolds. My pre wedding and engagement shoots are brilliant at showing couples how I shoot and what their wedding day photography will be like. This awesome twosome were so chilled out and happy to go with the flow it made for some awesome pictures! I'm really looking forward to shooting their big day next year!! 

Katie & Dan tie the knot at Caswell House, Cotswolds, Oxfordshire

Caswell House is a beautiful historic 15th century manor house with stunning medieval barns set in the heart of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. It proved to be the ideal venue for Katie and Dan to tie the knot in front of their friends and family. The whole day was spent at the venue from bridal and groom prep through to the crazy dancing in the evening. Autumn is a fantastic time of year and I was easily able to find some great backdrops for some cool shots.  It was a truly awesome wedding made even better by a super friendly couple and great guests! 

Kylie & Matt - Autumn pre wedding shoot in the Cotswolds

Autumn is my favourite time of year to shoot so I was excited to meet up with Kylie & Matt for their pre wedding shoot in Cheltenham. The town is known as the heart of the Cotswolds and you can see why. The light was on awesome on Sunday, so warm and rich making for great natural pictures! It also helped that Kylie & Matt were so friendly and chilled out! Cant wait to shoot their wedding next year! :-)
