Brympton House Wedding | Amy & Rick

Just a few of my very favourite wedding pictures created during Amy and Rick's incredible wedding at Brympton House in Somerset.

I photograph weddings at Brympton on a regular basis and there's always something new to find in terms of light, tone and composition...

Tipi Wedding | Hannah & Luke

I've absolutely loved getting to know Hannah and Luke over the last few months, what an amazing couple and an incredible tipi wedding! They planned the entire wedding day from their home in Hong Kong... Fortunately, we managed to squeeze in an engagement shoot (aka pre wedding shoot) during one of their few visits to the venue - the beautiful Upwey House on the outskirts of Weymouth.

I approach my engagement shoots, or sessions, in exactly the same way I do bride and groom portraiture on the wedding day - essentially a walk and natter. Shoots may take place anywhere - perhaps a forest with nice light or in this case, nearby fields. The photos are simply a bi-product of this little wander. If it feels right to sit or lean on something, if it's natural, then we might do that too. Nothing over the top, no skipping, piggy-backing or mock proposals, just simple and elegant images.

So, if you're in two minds as to whether to add an engagement shoot to your package, please rest assured I'm not going to ask you to pose awkwardly or play up to the camera. These shoots ultimately allow us to get used to working together, they also help couples overcome any fears they have of being in front of the camera and really benefit the quality of the portraits on the wedding day.

Wow! We thought picking our favourites would be easy - that we’d end up with a handful of showstoppers and a few more for the album... that was until we sat down and marked ALL of our favourites!!! How to pick?! 

Thank you so much for documenting our day so honestly, unobtrusively and with such an incredible eye. The pictures completely reflect the laughter and happiness of the day. Plus, we think every guest is captured naturally somewhere, which is exactly how we wanted our photography to be. 

Thank you again - it was such a pleasure to spend time with you both before and on the day.

A very happy, Hannah and Luke

You did so whilst melting into the background, ensuring we spent quality time with our family and friends rather than lengthy photo shoots. This was great as we had such a fantastic time, whilst having a beautiful set of very high quality photos.
