We met Emily & Simon the day after Simon got back from Japan on business and we thought he managed to concentrate on all the wedding photography questions Emily had exceptionally well considering the jet-lag he was suffering.
Emily had been a bridesmaid at a wedding we had photographed in Devon almost two years ago, so it was lovely to have her ask us to shoot her and Simons wedding day later this year.
Their pre-shoot was arranged to be in Putney, London just a day after all the snow melted. But it was still very cold and a grey continuous cloud covered the sky. Non-the-less, we bravely faced the elements and here are a few shots from the shoot. Thank goodness the Dukes Head did a decent hot-chocolate to thaw us out afterward!

Symonds Yat along the Wye Valley in Gloucestershire is known nation-wide for both its stunning scenery and as the nesting site for Peregrine Falcons. Situated just a few miles from Clearwell Castle wedding venue, we have visited this area about half-a-dozen times in the past year.
Goshawks and buzzards also frequent the area (although they’re not shooting weddings at Clearwell Castle) and the vantage point on Symonds Yat Rock allows you to breathe deeply of this mellow countryside.
Just down the road is Historic Monmouth, but here, as the sun sets, you can witness some of the most striking colours imaginable. Just close your eyes and enjoy the sound of silence…
Autumn is a truly gorgeous season wherever you are shooting a wedding. And this shoot at Clearwell Castle in the Forest of Dean a couple of years ago was no exception.
In fact, we think it really opened our eyes to the beauty but brevity of the stunning colours this time of year.
We’ve shot at Clearwell Castle a number of times, and Jess and Toms wedding ranks as one of the most memorable.
Regardless of the season, if you are planning a wedding at Clearwell Castle, call us today. Absolutely gorgeous wedding photography by Miranda Stuart.
