Dumbleton Hall Wedding photography | Katie & Martin Engagement Shoot

Hey there,

Quick sneak peek today,  I just got back from an engagement session at the amazing Dumbleton Hall nr Tewkesbury in Worcestershire.  Katie and Martin are getting married at Dumbleton Hall later this year so we chose the venue as the perfect venue for the engagement shoot.  Half joking but half seriously Katie had let me know she was becoming a bit of a blog stalker and could not stop smiling at the thought of seeing her photos on the blog, so with this in mind, I quickly grabbed a few – although I have not looked them in detail yet and edited them quickly to pop up on the website.

We were very fortunate that the weather held for us,  so here you go

Caer Beris Engagement Shoot – Sali and Craig

Hello there,

Still catching up, so a few weeks ago I shot the engagement session of Sali and Craig in beautiful Mid Wales as a stunning venue called – Caer Beris Manor Hotel

I was assisted on the day by Tom Astley who had come down to help me out on the wedding the day before which took place in Pembrokeshire, so we stopped overnight and called into Caer Beris on the way home and me  up with the couple.  Since i had Tom with me I got to play a little more with off camera lighting that I normally get to on Engagement Sessions.

We wanted to take full advantage of the grounds and some of the features of the venue, The couple are getting married at Caer Beris in a couple of months so this was a great dummy run to see what would work and not.

Sali may look a little familiar to some of you as she was a bridesmaid from a wedding I shot around 2 years ago.

Birmingham Wedding Photography – Engagement Shoot

The Mailbox – Birmingham City Center

Hey there,

Last night I met up with Kathryn and Paul at the Mailbox in Birmingham for their engagement session.  We met up at dusk and shot a few photos around the cannals and The Mailbox.

You learn a lot about your couples on engagement shoots, I now know Kathryn likes nice shops and very nice hair dressers,  Paul knows all the good restaurants and the couple hold The Mailbox in high regard as its where they first met.

It was a bit cold, slightly windy but Paul and Kathryn did fantastically well and here are a few photos from the night.

Engagement Photoshoot – My Secret Couple

Hey there,

On Tuesday this week I had a fabulous couple into the studio for an engagement photos for their wedding that is coming up soon – I dont want to give too many details away as they want to keep it a big surprise for their friends and family.

We used the grounds around the studio for the shoot which went fantastically well and produced some amazing images,  Naturally I am struggling to share them with you – However there is one I think I can get away with.

Sami & Matt’s Engagment Shoot

Sami & Matt’s Engagement Session

A Fun Family Day at the Beach !

Hi there guys, dp here from David Purslow Photography – if you post via a search engine then can I highly recommend you visit my wedding photography website located at

A little while back I had the pleasure of shooting (in the nicest possible way) Sami and Matt’s engagement session – I am sure Sami will jump up and down when she reads that her wedding is very fast approaching.    Sami and Matt seem to have booked me as their wedding photographer years ago, I am not sure if it was in 2009 or 2008 but it was a very long time indeed.  The reason I say this is when they booked me I was not offering signing books……

Whats a signing book – well its a beautiful wedding album that is printed on fine art paper that you can write on, the basic idea is you put together a collection of nice romantic photos from your engagement session into a presentation with lots of white space around the pages and then people can write you a message in the white space.

I have one I use as a demo album and I get brides who’s weddings I have shot to write in them or couples who have booked me to pop a few words in there as to why they picked me to be their wedding photographer.  In this picture you can see what Sami and Matt wrote in my book after their engagement session.

If you want to see more pictures of my album styles just click on the photo above !

So back to Sami & Matts engagement session.

Well as I was saying I shot their engagement session and their wedding is fast approaching.  We finalized the signing book album design and I wanted to share it with you.

Signing books make for a GREAT talking piece but more than that they make for a FANTASTIC keep sake and a totally unique memory of your wedding day.  Just imagine lots of pages filled with comments from all your friends, family and loved ones.

So here it is – I cant show you the cover as currently its somewhere over the Atlantic on its way over to  – bet Sami is jumping up and down again 🙂

*** How to use the Slide show ***

  1. Click the play button – then a little menu pops up at the bottom of the slide show
