Wedding at Wellington Barn - Sophie & Alex

I was excited when Alex and Sophie contacted me to be their Wellington Barn Wedding Photographer. It was yet another opportunity to photograph at the barn and it was a wonderful experience – for, quite frankly, a very wonderful couple.

Alex and Sophie got married at stunning Marshfield church, just around the corner where Sophie’s parents live and where she got ready together with her bridesmaids. The wedding itself was wonderful, with lots of tears from the parents, family, and friends – and some nervous looks from Alex just before the ceremony.

After the ceremony, the guests traveled together with the couple to Wellington Barn – an absolutely adorable location, nestled in a valley just outside of Calne in Wiltshire. Sophie had gone to some incredible lengths setting up the details of the day. The groom is a light technician so he lit up trees outside venue, which looked amazing. The table decorations and the wedding cake were out of this world.

Sophie looked absolutely stunning of course and as the day progressed, it incorporated the traditional set of speeches, some wining and dining, games and finishing up with a well-executed first dance in front of their close friends and family. It started raining during the drinks reception so taking group pictures was a bit challenging; luckily it stopped for a while so we could take some couple portraits and some other evening portraits.

Sophie and Alex’s wedding day was just perfect and absolutely wonderful with clouds and skies all making for the perfect scenery for this wedding in my opinion. Much credit to Sophie’s Bridal hair specialist: Charlotte Parker, the band: Brother from Another and also to the caterers: Berry Blue catering.

The beautiful venue, Wellington Barn is located in one of Wiltshire’s best looking countryside. The barn itself is divided into two parts, a smaller side licensed for civil ceremonies and the perfect place to unwind and dance the night away, coupled with the larger main room which can comfortably seat 100 guests. Its outdoor areas especially the surrounding hills are quite stunning and give an aerial view down onto the barn and surrounding farmland.

Please do get in touch if you are looking for a Wellington Barn Wedding Photographer for your wedding, I have just been added to their recommended supplier list and I’m very much looking forward to being a Wellington Barn wedding photographer again.

As usual, below is a selection of my favourite photographs from Sophie and Alex’s day at Wellington Barn.

"Martin is a very professional photographer who made two camera shy people relax and feel comfortable in front of the camera. His unobtrusive manner meant we had great candid photographs of guests; a truly special record of the day.
The photos we received were stunning and full of creative skill and flare. He used Wellington Barn's countryside surroundings and rustic interior to great effect especially with his night time photographs. He caught the autumnal feel of wedding perfectly.
We would have no hesitation in recommending him to future clients and look forward to working with him in the future. " - Sophie and Alex

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.

Great tythe barn wedding photographer - Ruth & Richard

It was a beautiful, sunny September day - the perfect day for The Great Tythe Barn wedding photographer. It’s very rare that real life lives up to the glamour and beauty of the weddings pinned on Pinterest, but the wedding of Ruth and Richard was everything you could imagine and more. What makes this event even more spectacular is that just a year before, I was the wedding photographer for Ruth’s sister and Ruth was the triumphant singleton who caught her sister’s tossed bouquet! Signaling to everybody that she would be the next to wed, so it was only a matter of time before Ruth and Richard tied the knot.

Guests filled The Great Tythe Barn under a roof full of twinkling lights and two adorable flower girls kicked off the procession, leading the way for Ruth’s four bridesmaids. Ruth walked down the aisle in her gorgeous white gown, escorted by her father. The bride was met by a smiling Richard who was adorned in a bright navy suit and red tie, matching his groomsmen.

"Martin was fantastic. He photographed my wedding at the Great Tythe Barn in Tetbury and my sister's wedding the year before and the photographs from both are perfect. He has a definite style but talked through with us what we wanted and adapted the pictures to fit this, adding in his own creativity. He is very friendly, helpful and professional and even stayed late on the day to get the final photographs."- Ruth& Richard


Wedding at Winkworth Farm

Winkworth farm wedding-01

What can I say about this colourful wedding at Winkworth Farm? There have been more than a few occasions that I've said a wedding has a real festival spirit but nothing could be truer for Zuhamy and David's wedding. Looking back at the photos is definitely brightening these cold winter days.

The pair were engaged at Glastonbury Festival and, fittingly, it's where they spent their honeymoon. So of course a fun filled wedding was a given. There were plenty of nods to Zuhamy's Mexican heritage with a mariachi band after the ceremony, tequila shots, Mexican folk art as favours and yep, a Mexican wave or two during the reception.

The night was full of dancing with live music from fantastic MADHEN and the whole day was captured on video by Mrs Mashup.

I'm please to say that Zuhamy & David's English festival wedding with a Mexiacan twist was featured on Festival Brides Wedding blog.

Wedding at Priston Mill


There are few things as magical as a rainbow appearing on your wedding day. It's a unique way to mark the occasion, and such a thing happened for Charlotte and Liam's wedding at Priston Mill. The day was made all the more special some time after, when West Weddings chose to feature the occasion.

Charlotte prepared for the day at her mother's house, wearing a stunning gown by A Class Brides. The very delicious cake was made by Clifton Cakes.

Charlotte looked beautiful, as did the wedding party. Tattoos were popular amongst guests, with some very lovely designs enhancing the feel of the day as being one of a kind, and all Charlotte and Liam's own design. I wish them the very best in their loves together.

Outdoor wedding at Priston Mill_53

Priston Mill wedding was a perfect choice for Leesa and Dan.

Nestled in the countryside at Priston Mill near Bath and Bristol, the ancient Watermill and Tythe Barn make perfect locations for wedding receptions and civil ceremonies.

I must admit that it was one of the funniest and most colorful weddings I've had the pleasure of photographing last year. Leesa is of Chinese descent on her father's side, and so it was wonderful to see all the Chinese touches, in honour of her heritage, at the wedding. Leesa's father, in particular, was hilarious. He was cracking jokes all day, and I felt to at ease in his presence.

As well as a traditional Chinese tea ceremony, the guests took part in a Dragon Dance, which I love to capture at Chinese weddings. It was a brilliantly sunny day, and truly gorgeous to photograph. Leesa prepared for the day at her home in Bath. The wedding flowers came by way of Emma Petersson, the cars from Englands Finest Cars and the band, the Moon Loungers, were as amazing as ever.

The wedding reception took place in the Tythe barn, which Leesa's sister had decorated perfectly. I felt so inspired by everything around me on the day. After some moving, and funny on the father of the bride's part, speeches, we went into the fields around us for sunset portraits.

It was a magical day, steeped in tradition, and I am so thrilled I could share in their special day. I wish Leesa and Dan a lifetime of happiness together. I am also pleased that their fun fusion wedding was featured in Your Bristol & Somerset wedding magazine.

He was a great hit with all of our guests, He put everybody at ease and and was a good laugh along with with his assistant photographer Jacob. His photography is of amazing standard and stood out over photographers we visited." - Leesa & Dan

Aldwick court farm wedding

Stephanie and David decided to have Aldwick Court Farm wedding. This delightful 17th-century family-run farm is set in over 300 acres of beautiful estate, and is home to the largest vineyard in Somerset! The vineyard was the perfect backdrop for shots of the newlyweds. A relatively new wedding venue, Aldwick is situated in a charming rural setting but only twenty five minutes of Bristol city centre. It’s perfect for brides and grooms who want to get away from the busy crowds of the South West, but don’t want to leave their city roots too far behind.

The bride and her party prepared for the day with Powder&Paint make-up in her mother’s home in Nailsea, giving things a really loving atmosphere. Two years ago, I photographed her sister’s wedding in the same place under a beautiful marquee. They even chose the same church - St Bridget’s Church in Chelvey - as Stephanie’s sister; it was a real family affair with a joyous feel, and I loved being able to go back and see so many familiar faces.

After the church service, Stephanie and David brought their guests back to Aldwick Court Farm and Vineyard, nestled in the Mendip countryside.

Following the wonderful speeches, I set up a photo booth on site for Stephanie and David and all their friends and family to enjoy. Nothing makes a wedding day like lovely, personal touches and this idea is always a huge hit. With music by Skinny Dippers and catering taken care of by Taste Buds, everything came together in perfect harmony and I left with a smile on my face.

As usual small selection from this Aldwick Court Farm wedding. If you are considering a wedding at Aldwick Court farm, please get in touch to discuss your wedding photography requirements.
