Gorgeous April wedding at The Green Dragon. It started off with bridal prep in Cheltenham so a nice 5min commute for me in the morning. We then went to Stroud registry office for the ceremony which meant on the drive back to The Green Dragon we could stop for photos in the Slad Valley great views of the cotswolds.

Derek and Katie had a great day for it I’ll let the photos tell the story.

The beautiful Great House Hotel at Sonning was the venue for this wedding I’ve been once before and it is a firm favourite of mine.

We had the beast from the east the weekend before so I was slightly worried what the weather would bring. Both bride and groom got ready at the hotel so I switched between the two for the mornings prep. Onto the ceremony in the main room windows all along one side, views of the river and some great light, also a lovely harpist to accompany Helen down the aisle.

The sun then came out even though we had been forecast rain all day so we shot down to the river walk to capture the couples photos.

Onto the food and drink which is something else at this venue! highly recommend a visit and all the staff are super.

I left Helen and James to enjoy the rest of the day and took them out once more in the evening sun when the rain gave us a break!

Here we go first wedding of 2018 at the lovely venue Manor by The Lake. Liz and Rich had previously done an engagement shoot with me at Barnsley House so had there posing ready!

Started the day nice and quiet at the Rock Bar with the groomsmen and some G and T’s , Liz made her way over to the bridal suite so it was easy for me to go between the two.

They had a lovely ceremony with the sun shining in from outside, then a quick spin around the grounds for some photos before the cold got to much.

I then left them to enjoy the day capturing the moments from the sidelines, they were great in the evening as managed to go outside braving the weather and get a few nighttime shots well worth it!

Ill let the photos do the talking 🙂

No 38 The Park Cheltenham, Cotswolds, the truly unique venue for Anthony and Monika’s wedding.

The day started with what I thought was going to be a nightmare getting to the venue as most the roads in Cheltenham were shut due to the cycling British tour coming through later, I wasn’t late though!

Monika and bridesmaids were in the beautiful bridal suite getting ready stunning room, stunning bathroom would recommend a stay here for sure. They were fully underway with the bubbles when I got there and makeup was being wrapped up , all in great spirits ready for the day ahead.

Onto the ceremony at No38 great ceremony room beautiful light really good for photos so I was happy, the sun came out and the huge doors were pulled back which made it a lovely setting for the I do’s.

Next the celebrations these guys can drink! great atmosphere and a lovely bunch of people the drinks were flowing and the canapés doing the rounds. I was watching the clock as the Tour was imminent and they were coming right past the hotel. The guests all went out onto the road bride and groom included as the cyclists came flying past (I’m not used to photographing fast moving objects bit of challenge ha!).

Back into No38 for the wedding breakfast and speeches, as the guests were being seated I took Anthony and Monika for a few photos then let them enjoy the great food.

As the sun was setting later we went over to Pittville Park for a few photos in the evening sun, then the throwing of the bouquet and onto the dancing and cake cutting. It was time for me to go then, lots of very merry guests, I’m sure the hotels “honesty bar” got a bashing well into the night!

Onto the church a short drive away for a lovely ceremony and back to hotel a beautiful setting next to the river the sunshine was out and all the guests were on the lawn a gorgeous day for it.

I took Kelly and Simon of in the evening as the sun was setting for a walk down the river and some photos it was a perfect evening , then inside for the cake cutting and dancing , the kids were loving the dance floor I’m sure it continued well into the night!
