Minster Lovell Pre-wedding photos

Stef and Ben are marrying later in the year in Eynsham, so we went to Minster Lovell for a few photographs on a very moody looking day - I love the results from the photo in the corn field, it's soft, yet dramatic!

Amy and Anand - Heythrop Park pre-wedding photo shoot

Amy and Anand are getting married at Heythrop Park later in the year, so they travelled down from High Wycombe to have a pre-wedding photo shoot with me around the venue grounds. This was the perfect opportunity to speak with their lovely wedding coordinator, Michelle, and find out a little more about their wedding plans.  The couple are a natural in front of the camera, so are ready to feel at complete ease on the day.

Dan and Emma - Save the Date Shoot

Dan and Emma gave me a challenge - photograph and aerial shot of them for a save the date card.  Simple you think... well at 5'1 (and 3/4) and with only a 3-step ladder to hand, this was a tough one! It consisted of photographing them in several parts and then some photoshop wizardry to put the image together. The results below are a combination of around 14 images!  Not bad, hey!?

Mike and Roxy - Wroxton pre-wedding photo shoot

These two are just the sweetest, they have travelled across the country to be together and you can see how much love they have for each other.  I'm so excited to be photographing their wedding soon!

Now, with Mike well into his 6ft (I'd say around 6'6'') and Roxy a wee 5'2'', the height difference always makes it a little more challenging to pose, but these two were great, up for the challenge and with some seated posed and a bit of leaning, it always ends up good!

Paul and Jo - Bladon pre-wedding photo shoot

Paul and Jo are getting married at The Witney Lakes Resort later in the year, so I met with them in Bladon to photograph a few photographs of them around the lake.  They are such a fun couple to be around, I can't wait to photograph their wedding.

Laura and Tom - Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire

Laura and Tom were married on a boiling hot Saturday in May at a gorgeous church near Mitcheldean in Gloucester.  I was lucky to have a second photographer, Carol, at this wedding with me, so she attended the mens preparations and guest arrivals whilst I was with the ladies.

Following the gorgeous church wedding, we went off to Laura's family farm for the reception and WOW, they filled a huge marquee full of the most amazing DIY decorations. From the home-made bar (great carpentry skills Tom) to the sweet jars and table centre pieces. It looked incredible.

We photographed the bride and groom portraits in the families garden, which had been painstakingly planted with the most beautiful array of flowers.

The lovely couple partied the night away with their guests to an amazing band, I really hope they had the best day.

Kayleigh and Tom - Woodstock Town Hall

I met Kayleigh and Tom last year, when Kayleigh was a bridesmaid at another wedding I photographed, so I was really excited when they asked me to photograph their wedding too.

Kayleigh was super excited when I arrived at her house of chaos! She told me about her wedding dress, which had been custom made by her aunt and was so delicate and beautiful. She looked absolutely stunning.

The couple married at Woodstock Town Hall, a fantastic venue which they filled to the brink with family and friends - seriously, standing room only!  After the ceremony I took the glowing Bride and Groom off for 15 minutes to Blenheim Palace for some portraits, just enough time for the guests to get to the marquee in a gorgeous Stonesfield farm. Blenheim Palace was the perfect setting for them, the early blossom blended perfectly with Kayleigh's delicate and classic look.

The marquee had a DIY touch with a Peter Pan theme, Kayleigh's favourite book from her childhood. The effort they put in to the decorations was worth it, it looked amazing.  They partied the night away in style, with a good friend of mine, Hannah Ball, providing the entertainment (she DJ's, sings and even does kids parties!)
