On Saturday, I photographed Emma and Stephen’s wedding at the stunning Clearwell Castle in Gloucestershire. It was a much brighter day than we have had recently and a very welcome change to all the rain!

Emma and her bridesmaids CJ and Bertie and a few other friends were enjoying getting ready in the bridal suite when I arrived. They all seemed surprisingly relaxed and even managed to sit down for a very civilised champagne lunch!

After lunch Emma got into her dress; a great choice for a castle wedding; a really lovely gown by Ian Stuart. I have done a number of fashion shoots using his bridal gowns and they always look great in photographs!

After the ceremony, guests headed out onto the lawns in front of the castle and were served Pimms and canapes while listening to a fantastic jazz band (www.paragonjazz.com). Later on, once Emma and Stephen had had a chance to greet guests and relax, we headed off around the grounds to take a few shots of them together.

Here are some of my favourite images:
