Dale & Charlotte’s Compton Verney Wedding

Dale and Charlotte celebrated their wedding on a beautiful day in August at Compton Verney. It’s a very special location, and old home and a present day art gallery with a fascinating collection and magical light in the gallery rooms. Charlotte and her bridesmaids got ready for the wedding at Walton Hall, which is another great venue. It’s funny to arrive at one place I’m used to photographing weddings but then transfer to a different one.

Compton Verney’s staff are professional. Anything you need is just a walkie talkie away. And the walk from the entrance across the bridge and lake and the walk up to the grand columned entrance certainly gives guests an impressive introduction to the venue. It’s a joy to photograph a wedding for such thoughtful and appreciative people as Dale and Charlotte. Here’s wishing them and their adorable little one all the love and luck in the world.

Tickets for the National Wedding Show to give away

If you’re free one day between the 1st and 3rd of March you should totally come and see us at the national wedding show. Just in case you didn’t know it’s a great big wedding fair at the NEC with loads of suppliers including us. A great opportunity to get a bit chunk of your wedding planning done in one go and have a fun day out with your squad. I don’t say squad.

As exhibitors we get a limited number of free tickets to give away, so if you want to come just send me a message ASAP. Looking forward to seeing you there!

James and Kelly’s Hampton Manor Wedding

Some photos from James and Kelly’s Hampton Manor wedding last April. I can’t believe it’s already been ten months! James and Kelly planned a small and intimate wedding in the Birches, with just close family in attendance. It’s a real honour to be present at such a small wedding among those most important to the bride and groom. After drinks and nibbles in the Manor itself, I left them to sit down to what looked like an amazing dinner. It always is at Hampton Manor!

If you’re planning a delightfully small and select guest list, do be sure to still get gorgeous photos by having a discreet and friendly photographer along!

We do full wedding videography!

Did you know?

We’ve been making highlights videos alongside still photography for three years now, but as of late last year we also started offering a full videography service for couples who’ve already booked their photographers but would like the day covered with a gorgeous wedding film.

Head over to the video page here for some samples, including Cary and Laura’s beautiful wedding just after Christmas last year. And please do get in touch if you’re interested in having your wedding filmed.

David and Lisa’s wedding at Quorn Country Hotel

It’s always a huge compliment when one of my couples recommends me to someone they know for a wedding. A few years ago I was proud to photograph Paul and Hannah’s beautiful wedding, and last year they recommended me to David and Lisa who booked me to photograph their own wedding at the Quorn country hotel in Leicestershire.

David and Lisa planned a perfect and personal day with their lovely families. The Quorn country hotel is a lovely setting with the ceremony in the conservatory and a nice garden for some gorgeous portraits. I’ve used a few already in recent blog posts!
