Shelley & Mark’s Intimate wedding in Wiltshire

Shelley and Mark planned an intimate wedding with close family in their tiny local church in Quarley, Wiltshire. It was originally going to be a secret, but organising even  small number of people into the same time and place proves difficult, so all bar the youngest attendees knew the plan by the day. However, their little girls Connie and Eleanor were surprised in the morning that there was a wedding and they were going to be bridesmaids alongside their older sister.  I got a real insight into their busy lives photographing Mark and Shelley with the girls and 3 boisterous labradors running around a field- hectic! After the ceremony the party moved on to the Malet Arms, a country pub in a nearby village, where everyone sat down for a relaxed meal in the cosy pub.  It was a privilege to be invited into the small gathering and photograph their day.

Shelley and Mark’s full photo gallery is open for friends and family at GALLERY and here’s a selection…

Cat & Wayne’s Wedding at Trafalgar Park, Salisbury: pt2 Preparations

Happy Christmas everyone, especially all my bride’s and grooms from 2011. Big love especially to two special friends who got married in November, Cat & Wayne, who are currently travelling around Asia on a massive 6 month honeymoon. Over the festive period I am sharing some extended blog posts of their wedding photos so they can relive the memories while they are away.

So lets go back to November, to Trafalgar Park, a manor house on the outskirts of Salisbury. This is straight in there as one of my favourite wedding venues, from the first sight across the long sheep-laden lawn, to the jaw dropping entrance hall and stunning historic interiors. We also refer to it as ‘the zombie house’, where some of 28 Days Later was filmed.  No machine gun posts, sandbags or zombies (hopefully) but just check out that baroque entrance hall, and if architecture’s not your thing, Irregular Choice wedding shoes anyone?

The boys appeared briefly, dropping off some bits and bobs and Wayne opened up a gift from his bride, an antique pocket watch.Wedding Photography Trafalgar Park Salisbury-23trafalagar park salisbury weddingWedding Photography Trafalgar Park Salisbury-1-3

Upstairs, the bride and her bridesmaids and parents were getting ready, and doing some more gift giving.

Bridesmaid Lolly is the singer in metal band Apnia with Wayne and best men Scott & Ryan, but she can turn her amazing voice to all sorts of music, and she was joined by Cat’s sister Vicky as they practised for their performance in church later. It was beautiful hearing their singing echoing through the corridors of the house.Wedding Photography Trafalgar Park Salisbury-27 Wedding Photography Trafalgar Park Salisbury-16Cat received some earrings from her groom- Wayne, this is what she thought of them…

Working as a wedding photographer I feel very privileged to be part of the special moments, and this is especially true when photographing my friends. Everyone who knows Cat, knows her to be bubbly, confident, and smiley so I love this set of photos as she got into her dress and the nerves really began to set in.

In true Cat style, things were running a little late, and we rushed off to St Osmond’s Catholic church in Salisbury for the ceremony.
