The beautiful marriage of Sarah Wallace and Jordan Montgomery

What a privilege it was to capture this beautiful day for Sarah and Jordan. The service at St Mary the Virgin, Rudford - Gloucestershire was made extra special thanks to Rev Helen Sammon, a big thank you to her for make me so welcome.

Gloucestershire 2017 Race For Life

On Sunday 11th June over 1000 people took part in the Gloucestershire 2017 Race For Life raising money for Cancer Research. Running 5km or 10km  around Gloucester on a hot, sticky morning all for a great cause.
I am trying to do my bit to help raise money by offering any of the 3000+ photos I took available for purchase for a small donation to Cancer Research.

Gloucester 2017 Race for Life

Capturing The Flying Scotsman

I was racing all over Gloucestershire capturing The Flying Scotsman yesterday but worth it!

In 1934, Scotsman was clocked at 100mph on a special test run – officially the first locomotive in the UK to have reached that speed.

Thornbury Castle Wedding Venue

Thornbury Castle is a beautiful medieval wedding venue in South Gloucestershire, rich in history and photographic opportunities! Here's a shot from a wedding I did there back in August 2010:

Autumn is here

I think we have all noticed the nights drawing in and the weather starting to turn and as depressing as this can be its a beautiful time for photography with the leaves turning a golden brown and the shiny conkers falling from the trees. 

While the number of weddings decrease in the autumn probably because here in Gloucestershire we know the risk of rain is so high but you can get lucky and have a beautiful wedding day in October/November time . If you wait a little longer you could have a winter wedding, possibly if you are really really lucky you could have a white wedding but sadly snow is getting increasingly rare in the south west. When it does snow though there's something magic about getting married in it  and a dream to be the wedding photographer at a wedding like this.

Thornbury Castle in the Snow

Really hope it snows this year, everything seems to look so much prettier in the snow.

Here are some photos of Thornbury Castle in South Gloucestershire during the winter of 2009-2010. This is also a beautiful venue for a wedding, I shot Helen & Simon Spirit's wedding here in 2010 it was a summer wedding but still just as photogenic.
