Gloucestershire wedding photographer – CHEERS 2018!
Having made the massive move from South Africa to England in 2014, I sometimes have to pinch myself that I’m actually a Gloucestershire wedding photographer living and working in the very beautiful Cotswolds with a thriving business. I am so thankful on a daily basis for this absolutely incredible job that I have. Coming from a graphic design design background, wedding photography gives me an outlet for my creativity as well as allowing me to indulge my ‘sentimental’ side. I recognize the sentiment in the smallest of details, a hand written card, your maiden name on your flower delivery just moments before your ceremony, the colour of the sky on your wedding day, ….
2018 has been a year filled with just just the happiest clients and the most magical venues. I’ve had the honour of shooting at Lapstone Barn in Chipping Campden for the first time this year, a gorgeous new venue with a very busy future ahead . I’ve been back to my usual favourite venues such as the very pretty and chic Cotswold House Hotel and Spa in Chipping Campden as well and the very elegant Manor House Hotel in Moreton in Marsh where I’ve had the pleasure of photographing 4 weddings this year. Another favourite venue is the very local (within walking distance of my house HA!) Kings Head Hotel in Cirencester which is a really unique and gorgeous boutique hotel perfect for smaller weddings. Hyde Barn is a venue I thoroughly love working at and its been amazing to be back there this year and get to shoot ceremonies in the very beautiful and newly built ‘The Grange’. I photographed my first Humanist wedding at the gorgeous Matara Center in Kingscote which was truly beautiful to witness. I also worked at Calcot Manor and Spa for the first time and am really looking forward to being back there in 2019 for more weddings I’ve booked…the venue and grounds are truly very special. My year ended off shooting at Hatherop Castle school, an absolutely breathtaking venue in Hatherop in the Cotswolds and I was just so honored to be able to shoot there as the venue does not do many weddings at all (Hint Hint Hatherop……you would be booked up solidly if you did :) )
Thank you to my wonderful couples for entrusting me to capture their very important memories of their wedding day. I have thoroughly loved every moment and have left every wedding this year, feeling like an extended family member. Thank you to the most amazing venues , wedding suppliers and fellow photographers I’ve made friends with along the way. It’s truly a remarkable industry to be a part of and I’m so looking forward to the fabulous weddings that 2019 brings my way :)
