Manor by the Lake – Roxanne & Sammy’s Wedding

This was our first wedding at the Manor by the Lake and we were blown away by it: beautiful gardens, amazing reception rooms, huge bridal suite and the staff were helpful and friendly.  With such a large, lively bridal party, we knew this wedding would be fun. After saying ‘Hi’ to Roxanne, I packed Chris off to photograph Sammy and shadow the groom’s party. I was out on the balcony with the flowergirls when I spotted Chris photographing the groom’s party below, never liking to miss an opportunity, I took a picture at the same time capturing this moment.

Manor by the Lake Two Wedding Photographers – Roxanne & Sam

Manor by the Lake Two Wedding Photographers – If you’re not sure of the advantages of booking Chris and me (a husband and wife photography team) to cover your wedding, check out these photos: the flowergirls peered over the balcony & spotted the groom’s party below having their photos taken by Chris. Never liking to miss an opportunity, I took a picture at the same time capturing this moment. Not only can you see Chris in my photo, if you look closely, you can also just spot me in the top right hand corner, looking out of the window. Roxanne Read More

Manor by the Lake – Roxanne & Sam’s Swinging Rascals

Manor by the Lake – Great entertainment during Roxanne & Sam’s wedding reception at Manor By The Lake​. The Swinging Rascals​ had everyone up & singing, we especially loved their rendition of Shirley Bassey’s “Hey Big Spender” complete with red feather boa which was happily modelled by Danny, great shot! They certainly got the party started with “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You”, “Delilah”, “Is This The Way to Amarillo” and “Sweet Caroline” amongst others. We can highly recommend them. If you love our style of photography and wish to see more of our work at the Manor by Read More

Tortworth Court Wedding – Beautiful Bride

We love this black and white image taken at Kelly & Gareth’s Tortworth Court Wedding.  Kelly wore a stunning Justin Alexander dress, with layer upon layer of white tulle, the top layer being scattered with sequins and the silk bodice encrusted in Swarovski crystals.   The movement in her dress is beautiful and Kelly stands out perfectly against the dark backdrop of Tortworth Court.

The Greenway Hotel Cheltenham

It was lovely to return to The Greenway Hotel Cheltenham this week.  This hotel holds such happy memories for us as it was where Chris and I got married many years ago.  I got quite emotional walking through the door of this 16th century Elizabethan Manor House.  The grandfather clock was still ticking away in the hallway and I remember us having our photo taken beside the clock as it struck 12 noon, the time of our ceremony.  It’s strange the things you remember: the oak panelled room where we said our vows, the bar inviting guests to have a drink, the log Read More

Penyard House – Barry & Mike’s Anniversary Celebration

We were so pleased to be asked to photograph Barry & Mike’s Anniversary Celebration Party. After having a small ceremony a year ago in New York, they invited guests from all over the world to celebrate their first wedding anniversary at Penyard House. Nicky from Millie & Me provided the elegant wedding stationery and Stephanie Saunders created amazing floral displays including a beautiful arrangement of roses, hydrangeas, lilies & orchids as a showpiece for the entrance hall.  This was decked with glass baubles & candles which looked very dramatic in the evening light.  With a range of cocktails and the Read More

Clevedon Hall Wedding Photography – Rachel & Martin’s Wedding

Rachel & Martin had opted for a wedding all under one roof at Clevedon Hall, a grand Victorian Mansion. On arrival, I popped up to see Rachel and I have rarely seen a bride so relaxed which was lovely to see although with the M5 at a standstill, there were a few anxious moments waiting for key guests to arrive. Rachel did not want a traditional wedding gown so chose a knee length dress in her favourite colour: purple, with all the accessories in purple too. Even the bouquet was different: consisting of vintage brooches, pearls & crystals from Crystal Read More
