Lauren & Lewis - Gate Street Barn Wedding Photos Surrey

Gate Street Barn Wedding Photos Surrey

Lauren & Lewis got married May 2017. Here are a small selection from their Gate Street Barn wedding photos Surrey. They will take a moment to view, struggled to get the numbers down lol x

Ah what can I say about this kind, loving, humble & amazingly cute couple! nothing other than I love you guys!!!!! From the moment we spoke via our good friend Google it was meant to be. What a wonderful thing the WWW is! Without this device invented we’d have never met. These guys live in Surrey So although I do a number of corporate jobs in London I never really push the wedding side of things in that neck of the woods but after coming across me on social media it were a digital match made in heaven……I now know what online dating is like………sort of. Lauren & Lewis did call to the studio 1 afternoon to my embarrassment! I thought they must have had family near by or something but no, just decided to have a drive along the M4 corridor to visit a little studio in a little village in the heart of the Welsh valleys. So glad they did though, we met, drank tea & discussed their big day. What gripped me was just how chilled they were……. no sales pitch or advice was needed. They had 100% confidence in what I would look to shoot. Something remarkable really…gaining ones trust on the back of a few blog posts. The best possible clients are always the ones who say, “Dave, David, Dai….you are the photographer, you know best!”

So the guys left full of tea & headed back to Surrey, I was to then next see them on the morning of the wedding…..felt like I’d know them for some time through the emails, so we cracked on with shooting at this remarkable venue …. Gate street Barn. I was greeted by a lady who kindly took me around the property & gave me a breakdown of what was the plan for the day….it was so relaxed… I loved it! Such a cool venue & so relaxing. The weather was grand giving us full scope of the grounds which always helps. The detail, the flowers, the dress, suits, canapés, food, drink……Marshmallows(I actually feature with the marshmallows lol), Pizza the list goes on……it was simply a wedding I wont forget & I hope to return to this sweet sweet venue.

Lauren & lewis, big hugs & we’ll speak soon ref album x

Katie & Ross - Canada Lake & Lodge Wedding Photos Cardiff

CANADA LODGE WEDING PHOTOS CARDIFF

 

Katie & Ross were married April this year, here is a small selection of their Canada Lake & Lodge wedding photos Cardiff.

So I bumped into Kate on my mothers retirement party. My mother had been an integral part of the success of several optician branches that run through the south Wales valley. Im not sure how long Kate had been there, but long enough to build up a relationship with my mother hence why she were at the party. We never really spoke about her wedding, I’m not sure she realised I actually shot weddings for a living. Anyway, several months later, maybe even a year, I bumped into Kate & Ross at a wedding fayre & we couldn’t quite remember where we new each other from but we both took an instant liking to one another, this led to them booking my services. In-between the initial meeting & the wedding we shot a beautiful evening engagement shoot that the couple went on to use as their invites.

The day arrived & it was a scorcher!!!! Canada Lake & lodge bathed in warm sunlight from start to finish. Kate & Ross factored in plenty of time so they could enjoy the company of their guests along with having their photos shot between the ceremony & wedding breakfast which always helps. As it was such a beautiful day we managed to do the bulk of their portraits together after the speeches had finished giving us that warm romantic light……my fav!!!!!!!

Such a lovely couple, lovely family & friends, many of whom I knew which made it even more fun.

Katie & Ross, I hope you had a fantastic wedding day & enjoyed viewing these Canada Lake & lodge wedding photos. Thank you so much for letting me play a small part in it xxx

Rebecca & Darren - Oldwalls Wedding Photos Swansea

Oldwalls Wedding Photos Swansea

Rebecca & Darren were married December 28th 2016, here’s a small selection from their Oldwalls Wedding Photos Swansea.

Becky & Darren got married at a little church just down from the road from the beautiful Oldwalls, St Rhidian & St lilted Church, Llanrhidian in late December 2016. If you have visited this church recently you’ll know how cool & totally awesome the Vicar is there, something you don’t hear very often from a photographers point of view. After chatting with him before the service I explained how respectful I am for whats about to take place but would also like to capture it in an unobtrusive manor, I was met with “Yea you go for it!” : )

To start the day, bridal preparations took place at the gorgeous Mulberry House(part of Oldwalls), with the sun shining on a cold crisp winters day, it was a wedding that was a joy to shoot from start to finish. Becky & Darren AKA DAZZA!!!! I’d met some time back, instantly falling for the couple when they called down, meant I had to shoot their wedding. I don’t tend to undertake many winter weddings, Im so glad I took this one on. The guys personalities shone through when we met & on the day itself. We had the same ideas, which is a must but I felt very much at ease with them both, especially Darren who’s a right character! We are still having our own personal FB msgs on a daily basis which 100% have nothing to do with weddings x

So leading up to the day I knew we were going to have fun & we so did. To have a couple say, “You’re the pro, we’ll do what ever you suggest & when” means I can relax & focus on what needs to be captured.  The couple were a delight to photograph along with their friends & family & I have to say, it was probably a good thing we left when we did as I’ve the feeling it would have taken days to recover with how the party was shaping up when we did depart.

Becky & Darren…………… big hugs guys, big hugs x

Steph & Jon - Rosedew Farm Wedding Photos Llantwit Major

Rosedew Farm Wedding Photos Llantwit Major

Steph & Jon were married July this year. Here are their Rosedew Farm Wedding Photos Llantwit Major.

Steph & Jon contacted me late into their wedding planning after seeing my work online. After speaking with Steph for some time I quickly came to realise how important photography was to them but in particular Steph. She knew exactly what she wanted photographically & after scowling through previous weddings I’d shot over the years it seemed it was the perfect match up! The natural, documentary side of my work with a handful of group shots & lots of obvious emphasis on the married couple was essential…just how I like to work : ) The day came & was gone in a flash down to how much I enjoyed it. Perfect mixture of love, happiness & tears plus we got to go to the beach which I love to do if at all possible…….something about the sea air.

Steph & Jon were married in July 2016, here are their Rosedew Farm Wedding Photos. I really hope I get to go back to Rosedew Farm, I also hope to work with such a loving & friendly couple.

The sample Album I’ve had made up from your wedding guys is something else x

Emma & Tye - Gilling Old Mill Barn Wedding Photos Yorkshire

Gilling Old Mill Barn Wedding Photos Yorkshire

Emma & Tye were married in Richmond, North Yorkshire, 21st May 2016. This page features some of their Gilling Old Mill Barn Wedding Photos Yorkshire

It was an absolute honour to be asked to experience what can only be described as one of the, emotional, heart felt & loving weddings I’ve been part of. To feel the emotion at weddings only helps capture what I want to capture. Its vital to observe in-between shooting, & keep listening to whats being said between couples, small groups & large rooms. This means I’m on hand to look out for that burst of laughter, the warm hug from Nan & bamps or that tear shed during the speeches. Tingles down the spine don’t happen very often in a lifetime, being a photographer shooting weddings up & down the country means I get to experience that feeling more than most, & I’m grateful for it.

Emma & Tye,…… I met this charming couple at the end of a wedding fayre, a couple of years back. Emma with her strong Scottish accent & Tye with his east midlands, my 1st thought was, I can’t see this being a booking & they were there just for a nose, how wrong was I. Within minutes I felt at total ease with both, especially Tye, probably because I could understand his accent a little easier than Emma’s Lol….sorry Em xxx. They hadn’t chose a venue at this point & were basically looking at venues from the South to the North of the UK. Once the email came through that they’d booked Gilling Old Mill Barn in North Yorkshire & wanted me to travel up & shoot their special day, I was hit with excitement & the daunting thought of a 5 hour drive! The drive in the end was awesome, hit the road the day before with my side kick Adam, banged some tunes out & had a few jars(when we arrived of course) & discussed the wedding we were to shoot the next day.

The day arrived with a mixture of wet, windy & sunny spells a little bit like the emotions of the day. I like to get to know my clients a little before the wedding day, & their are weddings, you know are going to be a little more emotional than others. So when people stand up & talk about the loss of loved ones, or not having someone for support that so many of us take for granted, its fairly hard to take, but its so important to photograph. These moments is where I really fall for the individuals related to whats being said, & suddenly I question my own life & realise how lucky I am.

The emotions ran from start to finish, not all sorrow like what sounds above, far from it, the day was packed full of laughter, love & happiness. Once the ceremony had finished the clouds parted for glorious sunshine(until our long hour drive back home to South Wales lol). A small amount of groups shots were taken, but Emma & Tye’s main objective photographically, was to capture the day as naturally as possible. Letting people enjoy the drinks reception whilst taking in the awesome views over the valley & catching up with folk who they’d not seen for years. As you may have seen from my other work, photographing the bride & groom is a huge part for me & one I enjoy most. Emma & Tye gave us the time to get what we wanted. Natural/Documentary shots of them both without too much fussing around.

Guys, we thoroughly enjoyed your wedding day & the food was A MA ZING…… Why doesn’t everyone have ribs for starters & burger for mains!!!! Thank you so much for letting us photograph such an important day in your lives together,  I hope you love your Gilling Old Mill Barn Wedding Photos xxx

Oh …..who could forget the ice-cream & uncle Bob….who’s not actually called Bob x

As it was such a beautiful day we managed to do the bulk of their portraits together after the speeches had finished giving us that warm evening light……my fav!!!!!!!

Sharon & David - Barn at Brynich Wedding Photos Brecon

Barn at Brynich Wedding Photos Brecon

 

Sharon & David Got married August 2015 here are their Barn at Brynich Wedding photos Brecon.

I’d met the couple at a wedding in Cardiff around 18 months prior to their wedding day. I instantly clicked with them. A charming couple who new what they wanted photographically……………..little fuss, capture the atmosphere of the day, very little group shots & some portraits of them together, so perfect really! I love nothing more than when couple say theyve viewmany plenty of my wedding photography & simple say we trust you so what ever you suggest really.

The wedding took place on a Tuesday(Love a midweek wedding!) at the start of August & it just seemed so fitting for Sharon & Dave. The weather wasn’t great, it wasn’t a huge wedding party but the wedding day was jam packed full of atmosphere. Though a very sad yet touching moment took place after the church service when sharon visited her fathers grave in the grounds of the church. Sharon had not long lost her father, so still raw she managed the courage & bravery to say a few words at the grave & move on. A joyful yet emotional moment at the church & im so glad I were able to grab one or 2 photographs for Sharon & her family.

I don’t think it would have been the same had it been a glorious summers day. We got what we could in between the showers & those dark clouds that rolled in over the Brecon mountains only added to the overall feel of the day & the photographs we shot. I thoroughly enjoyed this wedding & spending the day with this humble couple Sharon & Dave at The Barn at Brynich.

Kirsten & Neil - Charlton House Wedding Photos

Charlton House Wedding Photos

 

Kirsten & Neil’s Charlton House Wedding photos were shot back in early September this year. The beautiful Charlton House in Shepton Mallet, Somerset is one wedding venue I’d love to photograph at again. The couple were an absolute joy to work with & I’ve become very fond of them, especially Kirsten as we seem to chat most days via social media, though with Neil being a Spurs fan he comes a close 2nd : ) I’d never shot at this Charlton House before so I was curious to see how it would pan out. I called there a few months before the wedding to view the grounds(breathtaking!!!!) but to also meet the staff as working closely with hotel & kitchen staff on a wedding day is a must as we all want to pull in the same direction to benefit the client……the Bride & Groom. September came & the wedding from start to finish was full of emotion, fun & laughter. The staff were fantastic, the food fabulous, the guests so very friendly & Kirsten & Neil, well what can I say………………….think I gained a couple of friends x

Particular highlights: The wedding gifts from bride to groom & vice versa, the groomsmen’s suits, the venue as a whole & Kirsten & Neil’s trust in me……………this last one is priceless!

Anderson Photography – Oldwalls Wedding Photos

What can I say other than a beautiful, charming couple & such a friendly family who by the end of the day I felt like I’d known for years. I only wish we’d stayed to enjoy the late night shenanigans with the drinks & hot tub!!!!! (becoming Facebook friends definitely has its advantages). Such a warm welcome on our arrival( Dave & Jude, sorry we didn’t eat the amazing spread you put on for us, we got distracted doing our job lol) & throughout the whole day. One of my all time favourite weddings & mainly down to the people you are & not what the wedding entailed, all be it AMAZING!!!!!!!! I’m thrilled to feature some of their Oldwalls Wedding Photos!

It rained & rained & rained but what an amazing wedding!!!!! We did an engagement shoot at Ewenny priory leading up to the wedding & discussed what we could do & where at the grounds. Come the wedding day it pretty much rained all day long & our plans went out the window & were replaced with some very atmospheric photographs out in the wet stuff along with what took place inside the marquee, ……..beautiful decor, & a huge party. Fun laughter, drinking & dancing! Loved this wedding!!!!!

Caroline & Simon – The Lake & Country House Hotel, Wedding Photos

Although they booked well in advance, I’d not met Caroline & Simon until days before the wedding down to them working in London. I’d found out at our meeting that Caroline is the Sales manager for the Dorchester Hotel, London, so the pressure was on to make sure the day run smoothly & how it did. Their main priority was to be around their guests as much as possible & not diving off for too many photographs. Having plenty of time between the ceremony & the wedding breakfast meant they could really soak everything up, & for a photographer that was a dream as it gave us plenty of time to capture what we wanted. The couple were so lovely to work with along with the beautiful hotel & superb staff.
