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



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

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!

Scarlett & James - Oldwalls Wedding Photos

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!

  • Anderson Photography – Ewenny Priory, 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

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.
