Villa Eliana wedding - Becki & Jamie

villa eliana wedding photography

When Beckie and Jamie a lovely couple from Wiltshire which I met at wedding fayre organized by WhiteWed invited me to be their Villa Eliana wedding photographer, I was really excited to be privileged to capture the beautiful memories at their destination wedding on the Amalfi Coast. I love photographing destination weddings, so I have been very much looking forward to this wedding since January when I photographed wedding in Algarve.

Being my first time as a Villa Eliana wedding photographer, I arrived the day before the wedding to scout the location and immediately fell in love with gorgeous town in the south west of Italy with a lovely view into Capri, Mount Vesuvius, and  Gulf on Naples. This scenery is the delight of every photographer including a new Villa Eliana wedding photographer like me. With gorgeous views from the cliffs, a pretty marina where you can watch the sunset on the beach and a lively town center, Sorrento has everything to offer.

Set atop the rolling hills of Sorrento, Villa Eliana is a dream wedding venue, boasting incredible views all the way to Capri. It is one of the best spots around if you enjoy magnificent sunsets while sipping cocktails poolside, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t enjoy sunsets & cocktails!? Villa Eliana was the ideal location for Beckie and Jamie’s very relaxed wedding and with gorgeous weather, most of the reception took place outdoors.

Just after Sunset, there was cutting of the cake and first dance then party. The outdoor ceremony with only close friends and family present where they were treated to delicious food and high standard of service – very Italian!

After dinner guests were serenaded with live music which is definitely the best way to open the dance floor! Beckie & Jamie, thank you for taking me on your Italian adventure with you as your Villa Eliana wedding photographer.

SS Great Britain wedding - Laura & Alex

ss great britain wedding photography

As a recommended SS Great Britain wedding photographer, I photograph weddings at this venue on a regular basis. Launched in 1843 as the world’s first luxury ocean liner, the SS Great Britain is a truly unique venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions. This unique wedding venue is also the first wedding venue in Bristol where couple could get married outside the Bristol register office.

Laura and Alex didn’t only have perfect weather for their wedding at SS Great Britain; they had an incredibly unique day all together. It was a spring wedding with summer weather. A dream wedding on board one of the world’s greatest historic ships, creating memories to cherish and last a lifetime.

SS Great Britain Wedding Photography

The bride with her bridesmaids got ready at her parents’ house near Bristol. Her hair was made by Broad St. weddings, her make-up done by Kathryn from Powder & Paint. Abigail Westrup Bridal handled the Dress alteration while the bride’s gorgeous head piece called Maui was handmade by Abigail Grace design. On the other hand, the groom with his groomsmen arrived at SS Great Britain in style by ferry from the city center.

The ceremony was lovely and I especially loved the unique flowers supplied by Emma Petersson. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed the sunshine on the weather deck where drinks reception was held. It was lovely to have a quick chat with parents of one of my brides whose wedding I photographed few years back, it turned out that there are bride's parents friends.

The speeches were downright hilarious! Right after the speeches, we manages to catch the last rays of Sun and took some portraits just before the sunset. The wedding at SS Great Britain wouldn't be completed without some evening portraits as the ship looks incredible at night. After that, it was back to the party to spend time with friends and family to celebrate the happiest day of their lives. The Jacks through Warble Entertainments serenaded the guests with good music

If you are considering wedding at SS Great Britain (or anywhere in Bristol) please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your SS Great Britain wedding photography requirements.

"Dear Martin, thank you so much for amazing pictures you took on our wedding day. We are so grateful to you-the day goes by in such a blur, but we have a fantastic set of picture memories. You captured key parts throughout the whole day and we are so pleased. We will be singing your praises to anyone and everyone. Thank you Laura & Alex"

thornbury castle wedding

Thornbury Castle Wedding Photographer

thornbury castle wedding

As a Thornbury Castle wedding photographer, I find this location really exotic and perfect for a fun wedding. So when this really amazing couple, Beth and Adam, told me about their plans to tie the knots at Thornbury Castle, I was excited as this is one castle I love to photograph. The bride loves castles and donkeys, so they decided to have wedding at Thornbury Castle which is just few miles away from Bristol.

Dating back to the 16th century, Thornbury Castle is one of the most romantic hotels in the country. With its magnificent medieval architecture on the edge of the Cotswolds, impressive Tudor Hall, luxurious bedrooms and award winning food, it really is the perfect location for a memorable wedding. The Castle's idyllic walled gardens provide an unrivaled and grand setting for your reception, photographs, and guests. Set in pristine grounds, with a kitchen garden and vineyard, Henry VIII and his new bride, Anne Boleyn were once housed in the grandeur of Thornbury.

The big day was a rainy summer day but we had fun all the same as the castle provided lots of alternatives for group shots. Luckily, the rain stopped just before the speeches so we took some couple portraits in the lovely gardens at the castle.

Guess what? Adam surprised Beth with an arrival of the donkey from the donkey sanctuary just after the ceremony. That was really thoughtful. Knowing what this meant to Beth, we did well to capture her reaction on camera to keep the beautiful memories alive.

The cutting of the cake or actually cupcakes was done with a sword and that was quite unique. After the first dance and before fireworks, we took some evening portraits as the castle is beautifully lit at night with sights of the manicured lawns and landscaped grounds.

For Beth and Adam, the presence of their family and friends made their special day complete as they took a “Forever” vow at the historical Thornbury castle.

As a Bristol wedding photographer, I have worked in various wedding venues across the country, and I thrive on exotic locations as a photographer. Yet, Thornbury Castle is one location I would love to photograph over and over again. Do not hesitate to contact me if you’re in need of the services of a Thornbury Castle wedding photographer. Let’s do this all over again!

roman baths wedding photographer

Roman Baths Wedding Photographer - Emma & Matt

sunrise ceremony roman baths wedding

I love to work as The Roman Baths wedding photographer. On this occasion it was a Sunrise wedding ceremony at The Roman Baths where Emma and Matt were recently tied the knot. With an intimate feel, this Sunrise Wedding which took place in the morning around the torch-lit and steaming waters of the Great Bath provided a truly romantic start for Emma & Matt who are a fun and lovely couple.

Dating back to roughly 2000 years, the Roman Baths remain one of the deluxe historic sites in Europe. The Roman Baths are strategically located at the heart of the World Heritage city. Asides from being one of the most stunning and romantic locations in the country for weddings, the Roman Baths are also licensed for civil ceremonies. Little wonder this amazing historic site created the most magical scenery for an amazing couple like Emma and Matt to exchange their vows with family and friends as witnesses. It was a unique and perfect spot to celebrate the magical bond between this amazing couple. The Roman Baths gave an intimate feel to the celebration as Emma and Matt took their vows.

Even though I never met the couple until their big day, they were so cool to work with. With unprecedented photo opportunities at this stunning Bath Historic Venue, I started with some pictures of the groom and guests while waiting for bride to arrive with her two bridesmaids. We had only 20 minutes after the ceremony to photograph group shots and some couple pictures, before the venue was open to the visitors. I wish there would be more time as the venue is very picturesque. The couple decided to have confetti shot in front of Bath Abbey which is just around the corner from The Roman Baths. After that the guests traveled to Ascot racecourse for the reception.

Did we forget to say that this stunning location amazed all guests present? It was quite enigmatic! The temperature was pretty cold (around 0 degrees Celsius) so the steam from the warm waters gave a more than lovely mysterious atmosphere.

At Emma and Matt’s wedding, Daisy Chain in Corsham delivered the beautiful flowers while Emma’s gorgeous bridal dress was by Inspired - Brides Wiltshire.  It was a short but perfect Roman Baths wedding. Below are a few pictures highlighting this memorable day.

matara wedding photography

Matara wedding photography - Catherine & Jonni

The gorgeous Matara wedding between Catherine and Jonni was one of the most amazing events I’ve ever had the pleasure to photograph for so many reasons – not the least of which is the love shared between these two beautiful people! Their joie de vivre, along with their fun and relaxed natures, made this an exceptionally fun wedding to be part of. Not to mention the music theme that they picked for their wedding, which was a perfect choice!

Catherine looked stunning in her elegant ivory dress (fun fact – it had pockets!) from Krystle Brides in Bath. The soft and flowing skirt creating a lovely silhouette, the crossover bodice enhancing her beautiful figure with a lovely beaded belt a final touch on the glamorous ensemble. Taking pictures of Catherine was just an exercise in truly getting to know how charming she truly is – as the tiny buttons up the back of her dress were fastened, she leaned out the window with smiles and greetings! Her beauty was enhanced by the talented hairstylist Hayley Tilly and makeup by Jo from Mufumakeup. The flowers featured in the day were done by Daisy Chain in Wiltshire.
Jonni made an exceptionally handsome groom in a rich deep blue suit that fit the day perfectly – especially when he struck a James Bond pose in the bridal portraits! As he toasted his bride, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room and yet moments later everyone was rolling with laughter. During the speeches, Jonni played a song that he had written to Catherine, which had tears in many of the guests’ eyes!

Matara Wedding Photography

Jonni and Catherine are truly perfectly suited for each other, their wit and charm and personalities so complete that it would be hard to imagine one without the other. Their wedding reception entertainment was mostly by Just 3 Harmony trio who are friends of the couple, but Jonni played with his band for a few songs during the party.
This stunning and truly unique venue in Gloucestershire is one of my absolute favorites for weddings; it really suited the couple to hold their wedding here. It has such elegance and an eclectic personality of its own, yet it never overshadows the couples who get married here – and it would have had to work overtime to overwhelm the personalities of this unconventional and charming couple.
Each couple who marries at the Matara Centre, which is part of what makes this wedding venue so unique and special, and as we watched Jonni and Catherine plant a tree, we knew as it grew, so would their love. It was a special wedding, and a truly special couple.

There lovely Matara wedding photography was also featured on Easy Weddings website.

"We married at the Matara Centre in May 2016. Martin did our photography and he was amazing all the way through, right from our first meeting, throughout the wedding and to putting our album together afterwards. Martin was a photo ninja, he captured the most amazing moments, was genuinely excited about the day and was a pleasure to work with. The photos we ended up with were better than we could ever have imagined. We would have no hesitation recommending Martin."     Catherine & Jonni


wedding at stanbrook abbey

Wedding at Stanbrook Abbey

This wedding at Stanbrook Abbey was one big, beautiful affair. Guests filled the abbey for John and Laura’s wedding, and the two had a wedding party full of loved ones. Laura was surrounded by seven bridesmaids as she got ready to walk down the aisle, and John had his best man and three ushers. Two adorable flower girls and one pageboy marked the beginning of the ceremony as they processed in.

Laura looked stunning in her sleeveless white gown, and based on the reactions of her father and her bridesmaids, everyone else thought she looked remarkable too.

The ceremony was full of love, tears, and laughter. John wiped tears away from his eyes as Laura walked down the aisle toward him. The couple beamed as they exchanged vows, and guests smiled along as everyone sang “All You Need is Love,” by The Beatles. A string quartet accompanied guests as they sang during the ceremony.

After the ceremony guests headed to the reception in St. Anne’s Hall. There was fun to be had by all as all kind of games were played between the courses. Family and friends gave toasts to the new Mr. and Mrs. leaving them laughing and crying all at the same time. Laura and John surprised everyone by opting against a first dance but instead singing a first song.

The venue was the perfect location for capturing photos of John and Laura. The pair looked incredible as they posed for photos in empty hallways with beautiful architecture, and outside on the swing and amongst the greenery. The happy couple found me through the Stanbrook Abbey recommended supplier list. We went through the images of a previous wedding I had photographed there and they loved the photos, so I was happy to be able to give them their own.

Whether you are planning a wedding at Stanbrook Abbey, or are looking to get married elsewhere, I would love to hear from you to discuss your wedding photography requirements.

"Martin photographed our wedding at Stanbrook Abbey. We had spent a long time looking at different photographers' works online and then met Martin at a wedding fair. We really wanted a photographer who wouldn't do 'stuffy', overly formal photos and we loved the examples he showed us, especially the cool things he does with lighting, and booked him.
We had a Skype call with him prior to the wedding which was great and he really took the time to find out what we wanted. He definitely listened and we found him excellent on the day!
We've been to a few weddings where the photographer has barked orders at everyone but Martin was incredibly natural and friendly and up for a laugh with the guests. In fact many guests commented after the wedding saying how great the photographer was! His energy was incredible and he just ran around all over the place, somehow managing to be everywhere at once, capturing some fab shots from some great vantage points whilst never 'imposing' on anyone.
We thoroughly enjoyed his company on the day - you realise you spend a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day so it's important you have someone who knows what they're doing and who you can have fun with! We'd happily recommend Martin to anyone and needless to say our photos and wedding album were superb. Thank you Martin!

bristol zoo wedding photographer

Bristol Zoo wedding - Katelyn & Robert

bristol zoo wedding

It's hard to tell how many times I had a privilege to work as Bristol Zoo wedding photographer in the last seven years. This particular wedding was quite unique as the couple won the Wedding of the Year competition organised by Your Bristol and Somerset Wedding magazine. Katelyn and Robert chose to have both their wedding and reception at the zoo and for a couple of animal lovers no doubt it was an excellent choice.

Katelyn walked down the aisle in a stunning white gown. The happy couple exchanged their vows in front of friends and family in a room, appropriately decorated, with artwork of elephants, lions, and other animals.

The animal theme did not stop at the zoo. Katelyn and Robert invited guests to their wedding with animal-themed stationary. Waiting for them at their seats, family and friends found stuffed animals wearing the place cards. Guests even joined in on animal themed games throughout the reception.

It wouldn’t have been a wedding at the zoo without the new Mr. and Mrs. taking photos surrounded by animals. The two love birds posed holding several beautiful, multi-colored rainbow lorikeets.

Bristol Zoo wedding photographer

Nothing added to the day’s intimacy quite like having the zoo all to themselves. When the Bristol Zoo closes it gates to the public at 5pm, the guests are allowed to wander through the zoo without the crowds. This was also the perfect time to capture some incredible couple portraits.

Rain may have dampened the mood for some couples’ weddings, but not for Katelyn and Robert. Having rain throughout the day gave the perfect excuse to capture pictures inside the seal and penguin aquarium.

Katelyn and Robert’s Bristol Zoo wedding was filled with happiness, love, and laughter. Katelyn will soon be able to star in more of my photos when I will photograph her sister’s wedding this upcoming summer.

ss great britain wedding photographer

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.
