Laura & John's Wedding Photography, The Matara Centre, Tetbury, Gloucestershire

Laura and John's Wedding was at the fabulous Matara Centre near Tetbury in Gloucestershire and despite the almost constant rain it was, without doubt, a beautiful day!

The day started for me at the Stonehouse Court Hotel. Laura, her 5 Bridesmaids and Phil had stayed overnight here and were all very busy eating cakes and drinking champagne  when I joined them for some preparation shots. We were the off to the Matara for the Wedding!

The red theme, the Matara and all of the details that Laura and John had plannned (I thought the wedding photography table was a lovely idea) gave plenty of opportunties for some great shots!

The rain interfered with the group shots slightly, so we switched to plan B and shot them under the canopies around the water gardens. The rain stopped (briefly) just after the Wedding Breakfast so Laura, John and I walked through the grounds at dusk to get some extra shots of just the two of them.

Thanks for great day!

Here's a few of the pictures:


Laura and John's Engagement Photography at The Botanical Gardens in Oxford


Laura & John, Engagement Photography at the Botanical Gardens, Oxford

One of the many things I love about being a wedding photographer is the fantastic and diverse range of locations I get to shoot in. My previous engagement shoot was at an aboretum in Surrey this time we are at the Botanical Gardens in Oxford.The gardens are just beggining to come alive with spring flowers and buds, with its walled gardens and facinating greenhouses it's well worth a visit.

Having spent the morning with John and Laura I'm really looking forward to the wedding in May at "Matara", a stunning wedding venue in Tetbury, Gloucestershire.
