This is why many people choose to use the expertise of a wedding planner but if that's not for you then we have a solution. Here is a practical checklist to follow with the 5 most important things you need to do and when.

Pre wedding session, MayHill, Gloucestershire

Matt and Dave - pre wedding

3 years ago

I had the pleasure of first Matt and Dave a couple years ago whilst I was capturing a special celebration for a very good client of mine, we hit it off straight away and have since then met at other special occasions and bumped into each other whilst out and about. I was thrilled when they announce their engagement earlier this year and felt very honoured to be asked to capture their special day next year. As with all my couples I offered a prewedding session, it is the perfect opportunity to get to know each a bit more, to help put everyone at ease when being photographed and generally have some fun. Matt and Dave chose a dog walk on Mayhill for their session, so on a crisp December morning we donned our wellies and took in the views of the surrounding area from the beautiful Mayhill. Monty, their gorgeous French Bulldog joined us and as you can imagine stole the show!

50mm Challenge by Isabella Norman

3 years ago

Imagine, seeing a couple exchanging heartfelt vows only a few feet in front of you, at a view only the vicar normally gets to see. I know, it sounds extraordinary. That’s because it is. On the 19th November, this was exactly what I got the chance to experience with Kathryn of Capture This Moment. This was a view which I have never seen from before, as this was my first time shooting at the front of a church as a wedding photographer. I was using a 50 mm lens (as part of a challenge set by Kathryn, which was to shoot a whole wedding with just a 50mm lens all day ), which due to its low aperture gave me the ability to blur out the rest of the congregation and just focus on the bride and groom. This was an effect which I think showcased exactly what did happen at the church: the bride and the groom had blurred out the rest of the congregation, to them it was just the two of them.

Travelling in Style

3 years ago

There was little tradition at Charlie and Emma's wedding. The couple travelled from Dubia to the beautiful Cotswolds and were joined by many family and friends for a weekend of celebrations. Much of the weekend celebrations took place at the stunning Temple Guiting Manor. I spent the morning photographing the details of the bride's stunning gown and flowers - which featured hops, these featured throughout the day and represented the couples' love of beer and the industry in which they work in. As well as these details I captured Charlie along with his best man and ushers before they headed to the church in Broadwell village, a beautiful Cotswold village where Emma grew up.
