Kelly & Andy’s Wedding Day at Redhouse Barn

What a fantastic day photographing Kelly & Andy’s Wedding day at Redhouse Barn.   It’s a great location with a lovely ceremony room full of character with wooden beams & lots of light!    It’s also038 IMG_9680 set in fabulous grounds with plenty of opportunities to get great photos.

The staff were very efficient and friendly and I was looked after very well by Jane & Olivia.     I went along to check the layout and photo opportunities a few days before the wedding and Jane was very helpful in showing me around.

It was great to take some getting ready photos and I was there from 10am until the first dance.    It was a really enjoyable day and I hope to photograph here again in the future.   I hope you like the photos!    By the way the Range Rover has to be one of the most powerful sounding wedding cars I’ve ever heard ….. I want one , it’s absolutely essential for my work 🙂

Family Studio Photo Shoot November 2016

I do many family photo shoots whether outside or studio based and I now have quite a few families coming back to me annually to reflect how their families are IMG_1886all growing up!  It’s a bit of a science getting the lighting set up correctly and the camera settings spot on but also to make the session fun and to get everyone to have a good time making lovely photos.   If you’ve not had a chance to read up on me I have 2 young children so I’m very used to getting children of any age to react to my sometimes daft behaviour!    Anyway enough words and here are some photos from a lovely family (who have very kindly given me permission to post these photos) I have photographed on quite a few occasions now   (CLICK ON CONTINUE READING TO SEE THE PHOTOS ) :

Wedding of Sean & Mary Granary Hotel Kidderminster

026-img_8714

Wedding of Mary & Sean at the Granary Hotel Kidderminster  It was a happy day at the Granary Hotel near Kidderminster.   Sean & Mary and many of their family had travelled over from Northern Ireland and I was made to feel very welcome among their company.  The venue is perfect in terms of doing group shots near the ceremony room so people could mingle and not have to walk far when they were asked to take part.  I also handed out lists of the groups required to the chief bridesmaid and best man and they helped gather people … this really does help in making sure the group shots don’t drag on too long so that everyone can get back to catching up and enjoying themselves!   A great day and a pleasure to photograph.     Anyway here’s a selection of photos which I hope you enjoy!   Congratulations Sean & Mary!

Wedding of Siobhan & Mark

Wedding of Siobhan & Mark September 2016 – Powick Church & Bank House Hotel Worcester
It was a fantastic photographing Siobhan & Mark’s Wedding.    The wedding was at Powick Church in Worcester with the Wedding

Reception being at the Bank blog-7216House Hotel again in Worcester.   Siobhan asked for some getting ready photos and it’s certainly one of the biggest bridal suites I’ve ever seen with multiple rooms and fantastic views over the the Malvern Hills.       I always respect where I am asked to stand for the church service and on this occasion I was asked to stand at the back and remain discreet.   This still enables me to get some great photos and with the help of my 70-200 lens I can zoom in for certain shots.

Back at the Hotel there is a great shot of all the chaps jumping in the air and someone even offered to take a photo of me where I though why not!     Click on the “Continue Reading”  link below to see the photos!

Many congratulations to Siobhan & Mark!

Wedding of Megan & Arnie

23August 2016 Southcrest Hotel Redditch  Southcrest Hotel is a great location for a wedding with a lovely setting and everything within close reach.   I enjoyed photographing Megan & Arnie’s day and even did some video of the ceremony as requested by them.  The video camera was on a tripod but captured the mood really well.  I also put a professional microphone on the table in front of them so not to miss a word!   There was a bouncy castle on the lawn and it was great to see both Bride & Groom have a go on this,,, it made for some nice photos!     [Click “Continue Reading” below to see photos etc]

Wedding of Karoliina and Dan – Curradine Barns

Wedding of Karoliina & Dan – Curradine Barns – July 2016

800-long-edge-75qual-72dpi-high-sharp-0708What a beautiful location for a wedding at Curradine Barns.    The wedding ceremony took place at St Marys Church Shrawley and it was then a short walk to the Barns.  It’s not often you see a wedding party on mass walking along a country road after the ceremony but it was a lovely sight to be seen with the odd car having to wait until the road was clear again!   I was fortunate to be able to meet Karoliina and Dan before the day for a pre wedding shoot in Worcester, and I think it really helped on the day in that we were all familiar and comfortable with each others company.
