An Intimate wedding



My husband and I have been lucky enough to work with top UK photographers Damien and Julie Lovegrove over the last four years on various projects and over that time Paul and I have found a mutual love for photography.

We were delighted to be asked by some friends of a friend, if we would take some group shots for their wedding. Well obviously we said yes and said if they would be happy to, we would like to cover their whole wedding from getting ready to the first dance......lucky for us, they said yes.

We went to meet the bride, Nina and her bridesmaid, Claire at the Hotel Du Vin in Bristol where they were getting ready to do some pre wedding shots. The room was quite dark, but the bathroom which was on a mezzanine floor had a massive skylight, perfect to get these shots.



The wedding was at The Kings Arms outside Bath which is a fabulous country pub in a beautiful setting.

The couple decided to have a spiritual blessing which was led by the bride's Godmother. The couple were married the day before in a registry office to legalise the marriage.

The guests all stood in the front courtyard as the bride came through the pub into the guests.


The service was lovely and we were able to get a number of lovely shots which capture the mood.

We took so many lovely photos throughout the day. It was so relaxed and informal with the guests being treated to a fabulous Lamb Spit Roast (given to Nina and Tom by Jamie Oliver as a wedding present!). Here are a selection of our favourite shots.

We had a lovely time and would like to thank Tom and Nina for letting us photograph their wedding. To see all of the photos go to

This intimate wedding is so cute. I liked the photos and wedding location is so pretty. My sister also wants an outdoor ceremony and currently she is in search of the best wedding venues NYC for her perfect beachside wedding day. Hopefully she would find her dream location soon.
