the real wedding blog

Gorgeous real weddings, company news, exciting offers and fascinating insights into the world of photography. Grab your reading glasses,a glass of wine and a comfy seat, as you may be here a while!

All my latest weddings are covered in detail here, so if you want to get a really good feel for my work, then this is definitely the place to start.

Don’t forget to take a look at my other blog sections:-  one featuring individual images or ‘wedding highlights’ which I feel show off the best of wedding photography, and one showcasing inspirational wedding images & advice.

If you’re looking for a blog post about a particular wedding style or wedding venue, just use the search function at the bottom of the page.

Wedding Photography at Clevedon Hall : The Ceremony

It's time to take a look at another recent wedding ceremony - and this time, we're in Somerset at the wonderful Clevedon Hall near Bristol. Although I'm based in Dorset, I work all over Somerset, Dorset and Devon (plus further afield) and it was a pleasure to travel...

Outdoor Woodland Wedding in Dorset: Preview Images

This beautiful, outdoor woodland wedding which I recently photographed in Dorset just HAS to be one of the most beautiful experiences I've ever had as a wedding photographer and one of my all-time favourite weddings. I feel absolutely so honoured to have been there to...

Church Wedding at Brympton House

Let's pop over the Dorset country border to one of my favourite wedding venues in Somerset - Brympton House, near Yeovil. I've photographed weddings at Brympton House many, many times now, but it's relatively rare to get the opportunity to photograph a wedding...

Maunsel House Wedding : Previews

What a delight to be back as a Maunsel House wedding photographer for this lovely August wedding day! I always think of Maunsel House as the original 'party destination' when it comes to wedding celebrations, and this one certainly lived up to expectations in that...

Wedding Ceremony at Hanford School, Dorset

The title of this blog post is a little misleading, for whilst I was certainly present at this beautiful wedding ceremony at Hanford School in Dorset, and I was the wedding photographer, I wasn't allowed to photograph any of the ceremony! Every vicar has their own...

Holbrook House Wedding Photographer : Previews

This is a truly fabulous wedding that I was really thrilled to work on - and my first opportunity to work as a Holbrook House wedding photographer! The ceremony was held in one of my regular and most favourite wedding ceremony locations, Sherborne Abbey in Dorset,...

St Audries Park Wedding: The Ceremony

It's a rare day indeed when you get to photograph not one, but TWO wedding ceremonies during a St Audries Park wedding! No - it wasn't a double wedding (I haven't done one of those yet, but please feel welcome to make me an offer!). This beautiful wedding day belonged...

Knighton House Wedding Photographer: Preview Images

I was thrilled to have my first outing as a Knighton House wedding photographer last month - the only shame was that it rained pretty much all day, which meant that we couldn't take advantage of the gorgeous gardens and truly stunning views which are afforded from...

Wedding at Clevedon Hall : Bridal Preparation

What a wonderful wedding at Clevedon Hall this one turned out to be - and not only because of the beautiful location and the incredible love felt between the bride and groom, but also because guests had travelled from all over the world to be there! The bride and...

Weekday Wedding at Orchardleigh: Previews

Are you planning a weekday wedding? (For those not in the wedding industry, that means Monday to Thursday!) If so - you're in good company, for more and more couples are capitalising on better availability of both venues and suppliers by holding their special day away...

Shillingstone Wedding Photography : Previews

It's time to take a look at some previews from a wedding I photographed, most delightfully, in the Dorset village where I live! So it's a great pleasure to present some lovely Shillingstone wedding photography to you - with bridal prep in the village, a church...

Crowcombe Court Wedding Reception : The Celebrations

Today's blog is focusing on some of my favourite images from the most relaxed and informal part of the wedding day - the reception! This Crowcombe Court wedding reception, in beautiful West Somerset, was held in the winter, so naturally the guests didn't want to...
