Great Tythe Barn wedding - Abbey & Roye

great tythe barn wedding photography

Abbey and Roye’s wedding at the Great Tythe Barn in Tetbury, Gloucestershire, was a great success. Went so fast with so much fun, I really don’t know where the time went!  I met the couple few years before their wedding when I photographed Abbey's brother wedding and I was pleased to be chosen to cover their Great Tythe Barn wedding photography. When they told me about their wedding plans, It was clear the guests were going to have a blast!

I photographed the brides prep at Abbey's home, which was close to the St Michael Church in Stoke Gifford followed by a lovely ceremony, with a few tears of joy, in the main barn which looked beautiful.  The vicar was very accommodating and with great sense of humor which make the ceremony even more special. He started the ceremony from taking selfie of him, couple and all the guests. On the way to the Great Tythe Barn in Tetbury (where I photographed before) we stopped by the Clifton Suspension Bridge, which is a Bristol landmark and most popular choice for married couples for a photo session.

There was steel band playing during the drink reception. After the meal were some hilarious well executed speeches, again with a few tears of joy.

Before I left though I photographed them to lit Sky lantern in memory of Roye's closes ones who left before the wedding, which was a very touching moment.

Special credits to Spirit Wedding Cars that provided the 1930's Style White Beauford Wedding Car, Emma Peterson Designer Florist for the beautiful flowers and A Class Brides for the gorgeous dress worn by the bride.

"Our brother got married in 2014 and used Martin as their photographer. We found him to be extremely professional and not intrusive at all, he captured all the right pictures to give our wedding album the complete journey from the start of the day to the very end. Excellent photographer, we would highly recommend him! He made us feel very relaxed on our special day and went the extra mile to make our photos look amazing. Our wedding was held at St Micheal's Church Stoke Gifford and reception was held at the Great Tythe Barn in Tetbury" - Abbey & Roye

Summer wedding at Caswell House - Gemma & Neil

caswell house wedding photography

Neil and Gemma’s wedding was a beautiful sunny summer Caswell House Wedding in Oxfordshire. Being in charge of their Caswell House Wedding photography last summer was a wonderful experience for me because I had never photographed at this venue before the couple found me on the internet and booked my without even meeting up.

On the big day, the bride and her bridesmaids got ready in B&B near Burford.

The ceremony was held at St John the Baptist; an Anglican, evangelical church in the historic town of Burford. The couple was joined and blessed inside St John the Baptist’s historic and magnificent church building which happens to be one of the most famous buildings in the Cotswolds.

Before then, let me give you a quick walk down the memory lane. The couple met and worked at RAF and where they were based was just a few miles away from their Caswell House venue, very convenient indeed.

After the ceremony, we proceeded to Caswell House; a stylish and exclusive Cotswold barn wedding venue with a romantic ambience. The romantic surroundings with flagstone floors, honey-coloured Cotswold stone walls, oak beams and renovated barns were absolutely stunning.  The landscaped courtyard provided the perfect setting for the guests to enjoy their drinks reception while I clicked away in ecstasy. There were quite a lot of kids at the wedding, so the atmosphere was really playful.

After very touching groom's speeches and hilarious performance by Best man, we went to the fields nearby for some more pics just before the sunset.

Big congrats to this amazing and happy couple who found me on the internet and fell in love with my work! I worked with them to create beautiful memories just to ensure their Caswell House wedding was as they have always imagined it would be.

"What an amazing photographer Martin was! His professionalism and dedication throughout the day was unmeasurable. We have the photos of our dreams that will be cherished for a lifetime, all because of him. He stayed longer than was asked of him and was so good at what he does, I don't recall even seeing him during the day, yet the photos were there! You can see the pics all on his website of our day at Caswell house and see for yourself. Well done Martin, and once again.... Thank you!!!"  - Gemma & Neil

Summer wedding at Priston Mill - Gemma & Lee

priston mill wedding photographer

I photograph quite a lot Priston Mill weddings and it’s one of my favourite venues so when the couple found me on the wedding photographer Priston Mill recommended supplier list and contacted me, I knew this wedding would be a beautiful one and it didn’t disappoint.

Held on the last day of July, Gemma & Lee’s Priston Mill wedding was absolutely charming and gorgeous, typical of a wedding between two love birds. The bride got ready at Radford Villa, lovely B&B not far from the venue. Gemma was an absolutely stunning bride; her beautiful features enhanced by the talented Ellie Hitchens who did her make-up.

The beautiful flowers were made by Sweet Lavender Blue, and the colours of the bride’s bouquet matched the groom’s boutonniere. The bridesmaids wore a rich blush pink flowing gown which matched the groom’s tie. The stunning headpiece was created by Abigail Grace design. The colours were a perfect complement to both Gemma and Lee, highlighting the beauty of their eyes!

The wedding got off to a wonderful start with friends and families excited to be part of their big day. The groom is an enthusiast of beer making, so the couple incorporated this into their wedding and each table was named after a different beer. Naming the tables after different kind of ales was a unique feature which was quite intriguing for the guests.

There were also a lot of garden games to keep the guests entertained and after the speeches, the couple put their wellies on and we went for mini-sessions at the fields nearby.

After cutting the beautiful cake by Cemlyn Cakes, the guests danced off to music by The Beehives band.

Wedding Photographer Priston Mill

"From the moment we first met with Martin to discuss our wedding at Pristol Mill, we knew he'd do a great job and we weren't disappointed. His experience of the venue really helped him capture our day perfectly as he knew where had the best lighting at certain times of the day and his talent at 'telling the story' of our day really brought our images to life. His relaxed and unobtrusive style helped us both feel at ease in front of the camera and he was great at organising our guests to take the perfect shot.
From discussing our requirements at our first meeting to editing our photos for the album afterwards, Martin was quick to reply to e-mails at a time when we had a lot to organise and I would thoroughly recommend Martin Dabek to photograph your big day and capture everything about it that you wish to remember, perfectly. Thank you!"

Pennard house wedding photographer - Kate & Paul

pennard house wedding

I absolutely love to work as Pennard House wedding photographer so, sit back, relax and enjoy because this one is going to knock your socks off.

Kate and Paul, a lovely and fun couple, recently took their vows in Pennard House it was truly a dream wedding to remember! The love shared between this couple was palpable in the atmosphere, making this idyllic, country setting the perfect place for them to say “I do.” The venue is only a few miles away from the place where the famous Glastonbury festival takes place and with tipis, it was simply the perfect choice for Glastonbury festival goers like them. Kate and Paul got ready at the venue before walking to the Church of All Saints which is only a 2 minutes walk away from the venue. Very handy and no excuse to be late ;) Full of love, laughter, and joy, this couple had an amazing time exchanging their vows in the presence of their family, friends, and loved ones.

Pennard House wedding photographer

It was a perfect Pennard House wedding which wouldn't be as great without all the amazing supplier involved. Sharon from Interiors and Flowers by Design was taking care of all the floral design. Kate’s dress was by Charlie Brear from Perfect Day Bride and her hair was made by lovely Amelia from The Styling Lounge, Bristol. The team from Caroline Gent Catering was brilliant from start to finish. The food was delicious as always not to mention the presentation! It was Caroline itself who recommended me to the couple after seeing my images from the last wedding that we covered together.

Just after a meal, I spotted really nice light and took the couple for a 5 minutes mini session in tipi area just in time for a very entertaining sets of speeches in front of the house. At the reception, the DJ warmed up the guests with great music before the first dance and then the band took over afterwards. As a surprise to the guests, the couple hired Bucking Bronco which was a great hit! The couple insisted for me to have a go too, so I couldn't really say no ;)

"We were recommended Martin for our wedding photographer by our caterer. He was wonderful to work with- he managed to work with all of our guests in an unintrusive manner and everyone thought he was great! We even managed to coax him on to the bucking bronco that we'd hired at the end of the night- we have the photos to prove it! Our photos are brilliant and he was great to work with. Thanks Martin!!"  - Kate & Paul

Jennifer and Richard's Priston Mill wedding was one of my favourite experiences for two reasons. The first reason is that their wedding was absolutely charming; a gorgeous, floral-themed wedding between two people so truly in love, you just have to see it to believe it. The second reason is because I’ve photographed weddings at Priston Mill before, and it’s one of my favourite venues. Richard and Jennifer held their wedding at the Tythe Barn, and the Watermill is equally stunning – a perfect backdrop for weddings!

The fete got off to a wonderful start with so many people excited to be part of the big day, arriving and greeting each other with smiles and waves. I was able to get some beautiful and touching shots of family, since Jennifer and Richard opted to skip the ‘getting ready’ photos in favour of having me stay later in the evening to get some genuine and personal portraits later in the evening, which turned out fantastically – the dandelion fight during the portraits was one of a kind! All of the festivities were captured by Clifton, from CF Video Productions.

Jennifer was an absolutely stunning bride, her beautiful features enhanced by the talented Aldona Francis. The delicately beaded and embroidered netting of her bateau neckline beautifully set off the lovely curls that bounced around her shoulders. Jennifer carried a sweet bouquet by Floriography in Bristol, the colours of which were reflected by the boutonnieres the gentlemen wore and the rich cerulean blue chosen for the groom and groomsmen’s ties and accessories. The sashes that the flower girls wore were a shade of similar blue as well, and the blues were the perfect complement to both Jennifer and Richard, highlighting the beauty of their eyes! The Best Man was the Richard’s father, the Maid of Honour was Jennifer’s sister, and the flower girls were the groom’s nieces, keeping the wedding party very intimate and special.

Their sendoff was a shower of petals, in keeping with the floral theme, and the reception carried on in the same vein. The guests received heart-shaped lollypop with a real violet inside of them, and each table was named after a different flower. The blue to white ombré cake by The Cakery in Bristol was decorated with sugared violets as well, rounding out the beautiful floral style to the entire day.

The pictures we were able to take around the grounds were breathtakingly gorgeous – not just because Richard and Jennifer are such an attractive couple, but because their love genuinely shines through every time their eyes meet or their hands touch. Witnessing a wedding is always an emotionally-charged event, but the Priston Mill wedding photography I was able to capture with these two was even better, seeing the love shared between these two just floored me.

crowcombe court wedding

Crowcombe Court wedding

Crowcombe Court wedding venue is standing proudly at the edge of Quantock Hills in Somerset. The magnificent house at Crowcombe Court was built in the 1730s in the English Baroque style from beautiful amber coloured bricks with Bath stone for the pilasters and frontispiece. It is an enchanting and delectable place where joyous memories are engraved in the building's history.

Such memories were created by Amanda and Paul on their wedding day. I started the day with Paul and the groomsmen in the village pub; after that, the boys headed to the Church of the Holy Ghost where the couple chosen to have their wedding ceremony. Photographing the last touches of preparing for the big day, I followed the bride and bridesmaids from Crowcombe Court to the church.
The vintage decorations added to the Edwardian theme of the wedding whilst the vibrant colours illuminated the scenery. The bride wore a mesmerisingly beautify dress with delicate pearl touches from Bridal Emporium. I photographed the most diminutive detail including the moment when the couple gazed into each others eyes their hearts brimmed to the full with happiness - thrills of elation swept through the church as the couple said their "I do's.
Furthermore, the newly wed bride and groom led their guest to Crowcombe Court where they chose to have their reception. During the drinks reception, the guests were jazzed by the jazz band where the grooms father starred on the drums.
Humorous speeches lightened up the couples path to their new life as husband and wife. They cut the cake and whirled on the dance floor to ceilidh band as I proceeded to finish the day with some evening shoots that will finish their wedding album nicely.

Grange St Pauls wedding

Stuart and Ewa had a gorgeous Grange St Pauls wedding that was full of fun and merriment. The couple got ready in their reception venue - Grange Hotel St. Paul’s - which was very convenient as I could photograph both of their preparation simultaneously. The bride looked like a dream in the wedding gown and the hair and makeup artist - Rosie at Beauty Call had done a fabulous job.

Ewa and Stuart choose a vibrant church in the city of London for their wedding ceremony - St Vedast Church. The Parish of St Vedast is known from the 12th century, and the church is traditionally claimed to have been established by 1170!

This beautiful, spacious and full of light church is just behind St. Paul's cathedral and within walking distance from the venue reception. They have planned it out very well! The St. Vedast Church was beautifully decorated with flowers. The florist, Willow & Blooms had done a fabulous job with the flower arrangements.

After very emotional wedding ceremony and rain of confetti all the guests moved to Grange St Pauls wedding venue to celebrate their marriage.

The wedding reception was full of fun and cheer. The couple played some polish traditional wedding games during the reception, which also involved their international guests. The wedding speech of Stuart makes Ewa and all the guests very emotional. After the first dance we took some evening shots in front of the very majestic St. Paul's cathedral and on the venue roof terrace.

After dancing and signing on the roof terrace until 11pm, the wedding party moved downstairs to a meeting room that they converted into a nightclub! Their DJ was the owner (and close friend of the bride and groom) of Moonraker Disco. Moonraker did an amazing job turning a plain meeting room into a dance venue complete with sound system, lighting, draping, and dancefloor.

Overall I had a great time capturing the beautiful moments of the wedding of this gorgeous couple.

Wedding at SS Great Britain - Tina & Shaun

Tina and Shaun didn't only have perfect weather for their wedding at SS Great Britain; they had an incredibly unique day all together. Married in July, the couple were wed during the annual Bristol Harbour Festival aboard the beautiful SS Great Britain. In order to get to the Great Britain, both the bride and groom took a smaller boat to it, waved on by the many people who were out enjoying the day of sun.

Dressed in a vintage dress that was over one hundred years old by very talented Cara from Cocoa Couture. Tina was played in by a bagpiper during her arrival to the ship where her groom and all of their guests were waiting for the ceremony to begin. The bridesmaids, wearing a beautiful shade of dark blue dresses and carrying bright orange flowers, led the bride to the altar to meet her groom. 

After their first kiss as husband and wife, the pair took to the deck to have their photos taken. Shaun's son, who works on the SS Great Britain acting as the man who invented the ship, Mr. Brunel, provided everyone with Brunel hats and sideburns to take photos with, offering some great and hilarious opportunities with both the bridal party and the guests.

SS Great Britain Wedding Photographer

The reception room look amazing and I especially loved unique stationery which was designed by very talented Sarah from It was made from me. Sarah designed the stationery for her wedding at SS Great Britain and I had a pleasure to be her SS Great Britain wedding photographer too.

The nights entertainment included lovely and funny speeches, as well as a live  Ceilidh band, who traveled all the way from Scotland to provide the music. 

After the couple had their dance, we took to the upper deck to take some photos, since the SS Great Britain never fails to look incredible in the evening. After that, it was back to the party to spend time with friends and family to celebrate the happiest day of their lives.
