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

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.

Rosie and Jason’s Engagement Shoot at Witley Court

Rosie and Jason are getting married in a few weeks in Droitwich with a wedding reception at the magnificent Elms Hotel in Worcestershire.

A few weeks ago I met up with Rosie and Jason for an engagement shoot at Witley Court in Worcestershire.  Witley court is a truly spectacular venue for this kind of photo shoot – you need to buy a license to use it commercially but its money well spent – even in the poring rain which we had  all day.

We started off in the church next to Witley Court hoping the rain would hold off, but alas it did not but I have to give the couple credit – they were troopers, no matter what I asked them to do, even sitting on the ground (albeit on my reflector) they just dived right in.  The other thing was the fountain at Witley Court only goes off twice an hour and each time it does it gets quite an audience so Rosie and Jason had a good crowd watching them be all romantic and in love.

Here are a few from the day.

Then it was outside into the rain. here it was raining hard, we had a tiny space under a tree to stage  a few pics !

But the rain did not dampen the spirits of Rosie and Jason – When your in love, rain is nothing to worry about.

In the following shots the couple were getting soaked – if you peek at the bottom of their jeans you can see the tide mark creeping up the whole time.

Engagement Shoot: Freya and Nick

Getting married in Pembrokeshire


Last weekend I was in Pembrokeshire for a wedding, the next day I got up really early to meet Freya and Nick on the beautiful Newport Pemb’s Beach before flying up the motorway for an easter egg hunt with the kids.

Freya and Nick chose Newport Pembs Beach and somewhere down near Strumble head and one of the requests was to include their camper / conversion van – naturally this made me happy due to the fantastic reflections the windows gave off !

Here are a random few photos from  the day.
