We recently had the privilege of shooting a local wedding. It was a fantastic experience for all of us! There were a lot of great moments to document, and it was a genuine honor to be asked to take the photos. The weather was cold, but the mood was warm!

We shot at three different locations for this – the Shire Hall in Gloucester, Hillfield Gardens Park, and finally at the All Nations Club for the reception. It was over the weekend of the 3rd March, and the weather was uncharacteristically cold and snowy. Remember “The Beast From The East”? We were right in its grip!

Getting portraits done in the snow is actually a lot of fun and makes for some amazing shots, but convincing the bridal party to suffer for art by standing in the chill on their special day while we work is much, much harder.

Fortunately, the results speak for themselves!

This was a long time coming!

The highlight of the night was, for me, the Groom’s Speech. He surprised us all with a Reggae song in front of everyone, serenading his beautiful bride with something genuine, heartfelt, and incredible. He really nailed it – there wasn’t a dry eye in the room!

It’s incredible when a wedding becomes a concert!
