Wedding – Daisy & Nick, Chepstow Castle, South Wales

South Wales wedding photographyDaisy & Nick are one of those really great couples to photograph.

We knew that right from when we first spoke to them about their wedding plans and agreed a pre-shoot at a railway halt in the Forest of Dean (Click Here to see that shoot)

Daisy had obviously thought long and hard about her big day and it seems the theme definitely included lots of daisies – big yellow daisies in her bouquet – right through to a lovely white convertible 1978 VW Beetle decorated with garlands of the flowers and aptly named ‘Daisy’ to boot.

Daisy & Nick were married at the Kingdom Hall in Chepstow, in South Wales, and had allowed themselves plenty of time for the kind of couple-shoot that all-too-easily gets squeezed out of the days proceedings.

Just down the cobbled street is Chepstow Castle and the grounds made for a very nice location shoot, if a little busy with visitors.

Out of the blue, a visiting family from the USA, the father keeping his distance and the mother dressed in shorts and bright yellow wellingtons on a gloriously warm and sunny afternoon (what do they get told about our weather?!), spoke to Daisy. Their little girl was very excited! There was an ancient castle. And now all of a sudden a ‘real-life’ princess was here too. Desperately tugging at her mum, she asked if she could talk to ‘the princess’! Awwwww!

Checking the photos with the princess admirer, Nick looks a little resigned. Sorry Nick, marrying a princess has its drawbacks. Probably a sign of things to come…

Portrait Shoot – Daisy & Nick – Dean Forest Railway

Dean Forest RailwayWe like Daisy & Nick.

Right from our first chat about their wedding day plans it was obvious they were going to be a fun couple to photograph.

And they took an idea we suggested about their pre-shoot being in the style of the 1950’s, shot at the Dean Forest Railway near Lydney in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, and ran with it.

Shoots can be awesome when the couple want to be photographed, can imagine what the shoot will create and dress for the occasion.  And Daisy and Nick were definitely excited by the prospect of a black & white shoot at an old railway station in the Forest of Dean.

Prising them apart proved a little challenging, but we thoroughly enjoyed the bright and warm sunny afternoon.  And the helpful staff, engineers and conductor at the station were simply brilliant.

Thank you to everyone who made it such a memorable day!

Wedding – Rhiannon & Duncan – Clearwell Castle Gloucestershire Wedding Photography

Gloucestershire Wedding Photography

Rhiannon & Duncans wedding was at the fabulous Clearwell Castle in Gloucestershire, and since this was an August Bank Holiday weekend, we naturally enough had 4 seasons in one day.

Thankfully the weather held for the important shots.

During the day, Duncan had been concerned about the plaster-cast over his left hand and arm being in every shot (don’t ask how that happened…) , so we tried our best.  But in the end this, too, is part of the day – and something they can tell their kids eventually.

Its really great when you have a couple who are totally up for a photoshoot on their wedding day.  They have fun and they’re generally much more relaxed, and game for a bit of a giggle.  And it shows in their faces.

And it shows in their photographs.

So have a look at the selection below and feel free to leave a comment if you like.

Wedding – Jessica & Tom – Clearwell Castle, Gloucestershire

When we did the pre-wedding shoot for Jess & Tom, we just knew that they were going to be a fantastic couple to photograph on their wedding day. We weren’t wrong – they were fabulous. So chilled, but with an excitement they could barely contain. And theirs was a dream wedding at a dream location. But what of the weather? – Saturday was glorious and the trees shone with the most vibrant yellows and golds. It was quite simply, awesome. Truly awesome. So finally, here come the taster photographs … and please feel free to comment using the link at the bottom of the page .
