You’ll spend more time with your wedding photographer than anyone else on your big day and the last thing you want is a personality clash or to have booked someone who doesn’t listen to your needs. You only get one shot at capturing your day, so this is one investment that needs to be carefully thought out. They’ll be with you from getting ready until the party in the evening – maybe longer.  You need to make sure you get on well with them and feel relaxed, as well as liking their photography style. You want to…

    Broyle place wedding

    Leah and Mark enjoyed a wonderful outdoor Broyle Place wedding. The fabulous listed Elizabethan manor house is a private home that opens its doors to beautifully intimate weddings. The sun broke through the clouds mid-morning and set the scene for a warm and bright ceremony in the unique boat house. Leah was getting ready at the venue so Mark enjoyed the vintage wedding car, though they both got to enjoy a spin after the ceremony! The sun shone and the birds sang throughout the intimate ceremony. There was the wonderful smell of flowers and fresh grass that you only get with an outdoor wedding.

    Clevedon Hall wedding

    We found ourselves in an unusual situation for this Clevedon Hall wedding. The groom was my dad and I was a bridesmaid! Jodie took the reigns on the photography. I jumped in when we needed two of us, helping to organise group photos, the couples session, first dance etc. The rest of the time I was busy looking glamorous and finding out how it felt to be on the other side of the lens!! Don’t worry, Jodie was well fed and looked after. There may even have been a cocktail or two later that night… The venue was the fabulous Clevedon Hall, North Somerset. The sun was shining, the birds…
