Wedding! Ben and Selena

September 15th, 2008

Sometimes an opportunity comes along that you just have to take up.
In this case, a last minute wedding, so no Engagement shoot, I didn't even know what they looked like!
I was scared.
Turns out I made the right move.

This was one of the most beautiful and natural weddings I've ever shot.
It just screamed of style, but without looking unreal or impersonal, It was almost like Ben and Selena read my last post, and quickly arranged their day around my ideas and suggestions!

The wedding was in Bishopsworth, Bristol and the reception was at Chubbs farm, Axminster, Devon.
The Farmhouse is owned by a company called rural retreats who also own lots of other incredible properties across the Britain and Ireland.

Check out these pictures and tell me what you think!

Thanks allot Ben and Selena for letting me be there on your special day. I honestly loved every minute.
Ben, your ushers, well, they're just something else. =)

And Ashlee, thank you so much for allowing me to shoot alongside you.

    You are yet again the don! i have been looking at these shots for some time now and really like them, your style is fresh and light. it is very different to mine but feel it captures every moment very well. it wasn't a hard wedding to shot but that should under estimate how good your craftsmanship is. i have seen a noticable difference in your work recently and it is really high standard now mate. one day i'll be as good... maybe!
