It was just a perfect summers day for a Bristol wedding, when Veronica & Matthew got married in the grounds of Clevedon Hall last summer. Located close to the beach, it was the ideal setting for a seaside wedding. Veronica got ready in one of the stunning rooms in the house, followed by a sunny ceremony in the beautiful grounds. It was a hot day, one of the warmer days of the summer I’m guessing, so a trip to the local beach provided the perfect breeze for the couple photographs while guests enjoyed drinks and games on the lawn back at Clevedon hall. The wedding breakfast was held in the Grand library followed by late night dancing in the Grand hall.
V + M, you’re incredibly wonderful from top to toe. So kind and considerate, happy and very much in love. Ingrid and I are so thankful, and appreciate the time we spent with you very much. We loved capturing all the loveliness this one day contained. Thank you also for looking after us so well.
A big thank you also to Ingrid Simons for shooting this wedding together with me and for providing some of the lovely images below. Lot’s of love and appreciation! A
Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be the photographer for Sana and Manaf’s beautiful wedding that took place at Longstowe Hall in Cambridgeshire, UK. It was truly such a lovely day, and perfect in it’s entirety with the help of a beautiful venue, a touching ceremony, the best couple, gorgeous settings, fun events, powerful entertainment and a whole bunch of fantastic people.
S + M, thank you so much! For sharing your wedding day with me! For being so beautiful, happy and considerate. You are such a lovely couple and truly great together. I really enjoyed capturing all the events throughout your day and was really moved by it all. Thank you!
Lot’s of love, A
I get all emotional thinking about the days I spent as a photographer for Jhalini & Daniel’s wedding in Mauritius recently. I feel emotional because it touched me so; to get to know J + D and all their friends & family. It moved me to play a little part of a family so close together, so caring for each other, sympathetic, considerate, compassionate and warm. And yes it was warm in Mauritius too, but the real heat was between Jhalini & Daniel for sure and the warmth I felt came from their family and friends.
It’s almost an impossible task to sum up a wedding of this kind, a wedding of so many days, with so many events, but also with so much flavour and so much love, that touches the spirit on so many levels. But I’m a photographer and I’m in love with images. With pictures the memories and events and experience and emotions and moments fall back into place. You see different things at different times. Little details emerge into stories. Places comes back to life. People feel real again and the memories of what was, well it somehow still is. Images tell stories, but maybe we see different things, so it tells our stories. Photos brings us back and allows us the privilege to travel from one place to another, just like that. And isn’t that the best, that I can just scroll down, view a few images, and go back for a while, back in time, over seas and past oceans. To this one place, full of so much.
J + D. You’re so lovely. Not just lovely, somehow that doesn’t feel enough; amazing. Together especially. There’s so much to love about you and it’s beautiful to watch how in love you are with each other and how much the people around you love you both. Thank you so much for taking me with you to Mauritius and letting me share in all this love and the laughter and joy that came with it. Thank you also for looking after me so well, for being so compassionate and considerate, for all the fantastic food and for making me feel like I went away but came home at the same time. It means so much to me that I’ve been part of your journey together and now, you will forever be a part of me and my journey.
There’s so much more to be said, but I’ll let the images speak for them selves.
Lot’s of love, and appreciation, A
