Although the majority of work is wedding photography in Herts and Essex, this wedding took place at the Ramada Grange in Winterbourne, Bristol. I travelled down the day before so I could have a quick look around the venue before the wedding and was very pleased with what I saw.


Clare and Ian wanted an all day coverage of their wedding, right through to the first dance. The pre-wedding shoot also took place at the venue where the bride was getting ready and groom and best men were ready and waiting.

My good friend Martyn was my second photographer for the day enabling us to catch the action from many different angles throughout. We arrived approximately two hours before the ceremony which was a midday service. I captured the brides entrance from the front of the ceremony and really caught the emotion on camera.


The weather on the morning of the wedding was cloudy with lots of rain and this was in the back of my mind during the ceremony as I knew the weather would decide if the group photographs would be outside or not.

Luckily for Clare and Ian the rain had stopped during the ceremony and we were able to do the formal shots outside. The couple also had the resident toastmaster Dave Stallworthy who was great and really assisted thoughout the day.

I took the bride and groom for a little walk and we found some lovely locations for some of the more romantic shots and even had an unexpected visitor.

After some really great shots we returned to the hotel where the wedding breakfast was about to start.


We captured the speeches and cake cutting. As we still had plenty of time before the evening reception guests arrived and couple were game, we took them for a few more photos utilising some more of the fantastic locations in and around the venue.

Once the guests arrived and the party started, we took some evening portraits for the wedding guests before capturing the first dance. If you would like me to photograph your wedding or would like to book my dual photographer service then please get in touch.

We were just about to leave when we saw one more opportunity too good to miss, the venue was flood lit and with a bit of trickery involving a video light and pole we capture some fantastic night shots.
