Wiltshire wedding photography is a very tough competition area for local photographers but hopefully we are steadily joining the best, so more and more people asking for our services. This summer we have photographed quite a few weddings and one of them was so called military wedding with a ceremony have taken place in Tidworth St Patrick’s Catholic Garrison Church and following reception in Orchardleigh House, near Frome.
Ollie and Steph had a nice pre-wedding photowalk with us before and here our ultimate result from their wedding. Such a beautiful couple with flashy military arrangements was a pure joy to watch and photograph. The weather on the day and a 19th Century Victorian Stately Home can only emphasize our feelings about this gorgeous wedding!
Some time ago we have had a pre-wedding photosession near Rode in Somerset. Steph and Ollie booked their wedding long ago, and the choice of the location was quite obvious as one parents family live nearby. The route along river Frome is well used by the couple as they often walk their two dogs there. As it happened in the spring after terrible winter flooding just disappeared, we had to use wellies to walk around and the whole outfit was not particularly smart – rather rural! Dogs helped to keep atmosphere of the photoshoot relaxed and funny so we have had a good chat about everything including coming wedding. Especially interesting was to find out that it’s going to be a proper military wedding with servicemen wearing ceremonial uniform, swords etc. And once it’s put in specific location, like Orchardleigh House mansion near Frome, it should produce stunning images. Having been there just a few days ago for final meeting with Bride and Groom I can see that it will be one of the most interesting weddings I’ve had an honor to photograph so far…
But let’s keep it low until the wedding day, and for now I will share a few excerpts from that spring pre-wedding photoshoot.
It was not about work or photography at all when we went for a walk on a Saturday morning and I decided to take a camera this time. Normally I am happy with my iphone and iphoneography, but sometimes you want something more than that. Avoncliff was chosen as it’s not far, well regarded by my friends and provide a good path for stroller. We are now consider this place as a definitely worth visiting, if you happened to be around! River Avon, Canal, aqueduct, nice pub and general scenery makes it a nice location for different types of photography at Avoncliff!
Below is just a few snaps I’ve taken along the path…
