Brympton House Wedding - Fern & James

brympton house wedding photographer

As a seasoned Brympton House wedding photographer, I had a chance to get to know the couple at the engagement session at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich.

Fern and James are the kind of couple you just know are truly made for one another, so capturing their Brympton House wedding was a real honour!

The bride, her bridesmaids and flower girls got ready in Cerne Abbas in Dorset where Fern grew up. It was the perfect moment to relive growing up years. Fern looked lovely in her dress and was so excited to see her gorgeous husband to be when she approached him down the aisle. The ceremony was incredibly touching as it really was obvious for the world to see how much this lovely couple adores each other.

The ceremony took place in stunning and majestic Sherborne abbey while the wedding reception took place at Brympton House, where I photograph weddings on regular basis as a renowned Brympton House wedding photographer.
When I arrived at Brympton in Somerset for Fern and James’ wedding, it was obvious that the years of planning and saving for the day really paid off as the place looked stunning. I love Fern and James’ choice of colour scheme, it suited the venue perfectly!

Brympton House Wedding Photographer

No doubts, Brympton House is a beautiful romantic wedding venue & understandably, one that I love working in as a Brympton House Wedding Photographer. The house and its grounds ooze class and gentle English charm, a delicious mix of the historic and the modern. After the wedding breakfast and brilliant speeches, all the guests moved to The Stables for the evening entertainment which included a carousel, fire dancers, ice cream stands, etc. The venue turned into a funfair park!

Many thanks to the wonderful vendors such as Cakes by Samantha who made the couple one of the most beautiful cakes I’ve ever seen; Caroline Castigliano who made the bride’s gorgeous wedding dress, and the Brympton House team who handled the Flowers & Decoration and put it all together flawlessly.

I loved the time I spent photographing them together as their official wedding photographer Brympton House because their natural and gentle affection of each other made my job an absolute breeze!

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.

If you are considering wedding at Villa Eliana (or anywhere on the Amalfi Coast) please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your wedding photography requirements.

Kings Weston House wedding - Hollie & Jimmy

Kings Weston House wedding photographer

Hollie and Jimmy, a totally sweet couple, had their dream Bristol wedding at the historic Kings Weston House in the presence of their excited family and friends. The joy in the air was palpable and I was able to capture the positive vibes on camera.

As a regular Kings Weston House wedding photographer, I love to photograph at the KWH because of its beautiful décor and how spacious it is. Built many centuries ago, the Kings Weston house boasts of a plethora of 18th-century features, including magnificent ceilings, marble fireplaces, and a stunning suspended central staircase. It is elegant and characterful, yet retains the charm of a lived-in and loved family home.

On the big day, the bride and her seven bridesmaids got ready in a spacious bridal room at Kings Weston House. Hollie’s hair and Make-Up were done by the talented Emma Dawson. Her gorgeous dress was by Bride at Home. I also had a chance to capture groom with his two best men before the ceremony.

The ceremony was held in the Great Hall while the wedding breakfast took place in the stunning Vanbrugh room. After the ceremony, we all went outside where the drinks reception and group pictures took place, thanks to the lovely weather coupled with the lovely surrounding which created a romantic ambience. This provided the perfect setting for the guests to enjoy their drinks reception while I clicked away.

After the speeches and after the cake was cut, we had some time for evening pics. The guests also hung out in the Portrait gallery where the couple had set up DIY photo booth and obviously at the bar. We finished the Kings Weston wedding photography with some awesome night time shots.

Many thanks to Elizabeth weddings that did the styling, Rachel from The Rose Shed who supplied the flowers and lastly to the band, the Shuffles, who serenaded the guests with good music in the Oak room where the first dance also took place. These amazing vendors were very easy to work with and made my experience a smooth one.

Big congratulations to the amazing couple, Hollie & Jimmy, who liked my last wedding at Kings Weston House and got in touch with me to photograph theirs! I worked with them to create beautiful memories just to ensure their Kings Weston House wedding was as they have always imagined it would be.

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"

Fern & James' engagement session in Greenwich

old royal naval college greenwich wedding photography

One of the things I love about The Old Royal Naval College Greenwich wedding photography is that there is always something different to set one wedding apart from another.

Lots of my couple clients are based in the London area, so sometimes I go to this venue to photograph engagement sessions on request by couples even if their wedding will be taking place in Somerset or in the Cotswold area – just like Fern and James!

Engagement sessions are undoubtedly a great ice-breaker for couples. They feel relaxed during the session and most importantly, enjoy it. Fern & James’ engagement session was no exception! On this occasion, Fern & James chose the stunning Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich for their Engagement session because of their love for the architectural design of this venue.

The Old Royal Naval College Greenwich Wedding Photography

The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich London ranks as one of the most visited attractions in the UK. It’s absolutely stunning grounds and architecture attract people from all over the globe and obviously provide an extraordinary backdrop. It offers two magical wedding venues: the grand Painted Hall and the intimate Admiral’s House.

The refurbished Admiral’s House forms part of the oldest collection of buildings on site. The venue is reminiscent of an elegant townhouse, with two floors, joined by a beautiful period staircase. Situated on the edge of the Thames, it affords awe-inspiring, yet tranquil views of the river and across to Canary Wharf and the City. The Admiral’s House is perfect for an intimate wedding filled with charm and warmth. No matter the size of the wedding, this is a venue that is certain to delight your guests and leave you with memories to treasure for a lifetime.

After exchanging a few pleasantries with the couple, we started the engagement photo session in the park just before sunset and finished when it was already dark at the college site. It was a great occasion to get to know one another as we had only spoken on the phone before then.

I look forward to photographing their wedding this June at Brympton House in Somerset

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.

Great Tythe Barn Wedding Photography

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.

Caswell House Wedding Photography

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
