The Wedding of Kimberly and Jack

A Stunning Cotswolds Wedding

An Eastington Hall Wedding,  photography by David Puslow

Hello there, a few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of photographing the wedding of Kimberly and Jack – Captain Jack as he is known to his friends I have since found out:-)

The couple were getting married at Eastington Hall, a stunning wedding venue in the Cotswolds.  Eastington Hall is a very impressive exclusive use wedding venue so the whole day took place in one location and the only people around were wedding guests.  Unfortunately the weather was not the best and I have to thank each and every guest who managed to get soaked the first time we tried to shoot the big group shot – luckily enough we did try again and we got the shot this time.   So thanks guys for all you efforts and for having another go.

Helen and I arrived at Eastington Hall and were greeted by the boys playing Cricket on the front lawn, the first thing we always do is a quick recce of the venue to scout out locations for photos in the event the weather turns – good job we did as it rained pretty hard at time.  We were lucky enough to get some great establishing shots of Eastington Hall after we had let the bride know we had arrived.  Kimberly and ‘The girls’ were up stairs in the magnificent bridal suite with its large bay windows and stunning views over the Cotswolds Countryside.

The day was fantastic despite the rain which in truth was on and off, we could not shoot the romantic shots around the grounds due to the grass being soaked so we made good use of the house and the features around.

As we entered the bridal suite I was so excited by the grandness of the whole thing and at just how beautiful Kimberly’s wedding dress was – I knew it would make for a fantastic wedding dress photo so we carefully (after asking to do so) moved it and hung it in the bay window.  We had arranged that NO ONE would be around the back to see it and we quickly shot a few photos of it. – Stunning.

The wedding was packed which is a credit to Kimberly and Jack and the whole day flew by in the blink of an eye and then the evening festivities kicked off – We ran a Wedding Slide show (photos from before the wedding breakfast set to music and projected onto a large screen) which was followed by the first dance and then the crazy dancing took over – we ended the night with what is rapidly becoming a very requested photo – the LOVE PHOTO I call it, where the couple choose 4 very special people to write the word love with torches while they hug and kiss ( a long exposure – see the photo) and then it was time for us to leave the party.

Below is a selection of photos from Kimberly and Jack’s wedding at Eastington Hall – Enjoy.  As you can see the weather did nothing to spoil the enjoyment of the day.

We would like to wish Kimberly and Jack all the best and to say congratulation – Your wedding was amazing and we were happy to be a part of it.

take care, god bless,

Hello there,

Just playing with a couple of pictures from the wedding of Kate and Mark – I shot this one during the singing as its a 7 photo image – its a composite of 7 photos from almost black to totally white – then the computer makes an images that pulls date from each layer – its called HDR – which stands for High Dynamic Range.

I love this one:-)

Wedding Photography Engagement Session

An Engagement Shoot

Sara & Karl at Freshwater East, Pembrokeshire, West Wales

Hey guys, David Purslow here from www.davidpurslow.com – Wedding and Portrait photographer covering the whole of the UK.

About a month ago (I am a little behind as its full on wedding season at the moment) I had the great pleasure of meeting up with Sara and Karl for their pre wedding engagement shoot.  We arranged to meet at Freshwater East, a stunning photo location on the west coast of Wales.

The whole shoot lasted around an hour but we CRANKED out some seriously good photos (at least in my humble opinion)

The purpose of the shoot was to put together a guest signing book (If you have not seen one of these then check out my albums page by clicking here)

Below is a selection of some of the pages from the shoot.

The beach was not as empty as it looks, I airbrushed a lot of people and dogs off the beach – I love the feel of Sara and Karl’s engagement album it could easily be any beach in the world.

Hope you like,

The idea is simple, plenty of white space for guests to write messages of love to the happy couple.

Enjoy,

New Product ! – Framed Collage Prints

Hi everyone,

Just a very quickie today,  I had a fabulous wedding on Saturday and will be posting pictures in a few days, then Yesterday I was at the Wedding Fayre at the Hotel Plas Hyfryd in Narberth where I unveiled my latest offering.

I chose the Plas to unveil it as the pictures were from last weekend (10 days ago now) wedding of Barry and Becci, Barry runs the Plas so it seemed the perfect wedding to use for the show piece.

As you can see, this version if the later of the two I will be offering.  The Finished size of this piece is 51 inches by 41 inches and the photo is 30 inches by 40 inches.  This version has 65 photos in it.

I will also be offering a smaller version with 50 photos, this version will be 20×30 inch print in a 30 x 40 inch frame when finished.
