Emma and Mike Married – Close Hotel, Tetbury

Last month I had another brilliant experience shooting for Becky Male Photography, this time at the wedding of Emma and Mike. They were married in St Adelines, a small, cute church in Little Sodbury, followed by a reception at The Close Hotel, Tetbury. I started off at the best man’s house where Mike and the boys were getting ready. There was a bit of flapping and chaos including a moment when they realised they’d forgotten to iron their collars, cue uncomfortable bending over by the ironing board and trying to iron them whilst still wearing them! The ceremony was beautiful, with some very moving moments, especially during the readings. After the ceremony Mike whisked Emma off in a flash Morgan car to the reception, stopping for a few windswept portraits on the way. They were so excited to be married it really was so sweet to see. I was also rather excited to drive right by Prince Charles’ Highgrove residence. As usual, the speeches had me giggling and then the guests had an opportunity to chill out in the gorgeous grounds when the sun came out. Thanks for having me along Becky, it was fab!  Here are some of my images from the day…

Francesca and Matthew Married – Kingscote Barn, Tetbury

Woweeee! My first blog post on my shiny new website. Well done to my husband Barney for putting it together so patiently and listening to all my ideas and calmly changing things when I asked. You’re a star! So first up is my wonderful day second shooting with Becky Male Photography at the wedding of Fran and Matthew at Kingscote Barn. It was the weekend of the national Jubilee celebrations and everyone was anxious about the weather as the forecasts were typically bleak in the UK. Fortunately, the wedding took place on the Monday which was the only day around here where the sun shone intermittently and we got some amazing evening light – we couldn’t have been luckier!  The wedding was beautiful. Fran looked gorgeous and was very laid back all day. The speeches were hilarious and as usual, I had to concentrate on taking photos and suppress my laughter and tears!
Their young son Benjamin also loved getting involved in all the celebrations, most notably doing some super moves on the dance floor later in the evening – I love that phase little kids go through when they’re just discovering music and movement!
Most touching was the car that drove Fran to the wedding. It was her dad’s old car and had been arranged as a special surprise for her. Becky told me later she even had a little sob herself when she saw Fran’s reaction – this is what I love about weddings, all that joy and emotion during the day. And I loved watching all the men-folk gather round inspecting the car outside the venue after the ceremony, some having a good old nosy under the bonnet with champagnes in hand – marvellous!
The venue itself is gorgeous – light and airy inside, yet retaining traditional features. And outside the views of the countryside were simply gorgeous. And the staff were all super helpful and friendly, which is always an added bonus as a photographer. I had such a lovely day, it was a real pleasure to work with Becky, who is professional and great company at the same time, and be part of such a lovely wedding. Here are a selection of my images from the day…
