On Saturday 10th February I captured the #wedding of Bradley and Sarah at Coombe Lodge at Blagdon. This was my first wedding of 2018 and I was excited to get back in to it again. My day started with Sarah for bridal preparations with her bridesmaid's. The was a hair and make-up station and upstairs all the dress and shoes were lined up ready to capture. Sarah was also given a present from Bradley and thankfully he had listened to her request for a pair of ear rings. There was also a candle and a lovely letter just hot everybody welling up.

Stuart & Victoria

On Saturday 3rd March I captured the #wedding of Stuart and Victoria at Winkworth Farm.

Bristol & Somerset Wedding Awards 2018

On Friday the 23rd February it was The Bristol & Somerset Wedding Awards2018; a night I always view as the Christmas Day of the wedding industry, and an evening when I get to socialise with all my wedding industry friends in a relaxed environment. Tonight was the night to celebrate the success of our local wedding industry, and raise much-needed money for The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation. With this being the fifth awards evening, and my fourth in attendance, I always get excited about what might be in store. As you can imagine, I also get very anxious about my award category; that of videographer. Having won my category for four years running, this was my chance to win for a fifth time - an achievement only shared with the equally talented Stacey Jade Hair.
So, what did the evening have in store?
My day started at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House at 10am, when I met Graham Thomas to help with anything that needed doing. Fantastic progress was already being made, and my jobs we…

Although it was cloudy the temperature was good and I was preparing for a lovely day. My day started with Rebecca and it was to see the bridesmaids make-up. I then went on a walk of the grounds and I was taken back by how much this Manor house had to offer. I then went back to see Rebecca have her make-up applied and I captured her dress and details. James was also getting ready at the manor and I met up with him and his groomsmen. Guests started to arrive and I went back to capture the moment Rebecca's dad saw her for the first time in her dress.
