July saw us photograph the beautiful wedding of Polly & Richard at Chatsworth House. What a fantastic day it was. We started off with the guys at The Cavendish Hotel where after a hearty breakfast we took some shots of them getting ready before heading off to see the  girls. Richard and his brother looked very smart in their dark blue suits which would compliment the elegant surroundings of Chatsworth perfectly.

Meeting Polly at the family home where things were well underway. We flitted between her and the bridesmaids who were involved in a strategic operation of painting toe nails, make up, hair and all the other things that come with such a responsibility all looking gorgeous in their dresses from Bill Levkoff. ! There were flowers everywhere , some from Polly's mum and others from Katie Peckett, The house was filled with colour and and air of expectation. Polly look simply stunning in her dress from Maggie Sottero and  hair and makeup skills from Lucy Elliot. We left the house with everyone and headed off to St. Michels Church in Hathersage. After a lovely ceremony everyone gathered outside the church for confetti and chat. After which the couple were whisked away in their vintage car so we could take a few shots in the stunning surrounding countryside before heading off to Chatsworth House.

Upon arriving canopes and drinks were served and we had some time to take the Bride & Groom and Bridal party off for a few pictures! Utilising the amazing architecture of the house. After which we were whisked away around the grounds of Chatsworth in our own private buggy! A huge thank you to Ricard, Poly and their respective families for their hospitality.

The night continued with a fabulous meal , drinks and dancing into the small hours.

Here are some of the images from the day..

Our wonderful wedding season continues with the no less wonderful wedding of photographer Talissa & husband Jonathan at Brocket Hall in the fabulous countryside of Hertfordshire.

The day started with  the indoor/outdoor dilemma , whether to risk the chance of rain with an outdoor ceremony! Alas despite the best efforts of everyone it wasn't to be,  indoors it was. Despite this it was a beautiful ceremony with Talissa looking simply stunning in her dress and the most amazing shoes I've ever seen with her bridesmaids in blue, Jonathan and the guys looking equally dashing in their grey suits.. After which everyone gathered outside for drinks and canapes with a fortunate break in the weather! After a coach & horse ride we had5 mins for some pictures before the heavens opened again. So time for the wedding breakfast in the stunning main ball room at Brocket. After speeches we had 10 mins with the weather giving us the best amazing light it had all day. So we rushed outside with the Bride & Groom for our last chance for a few pictures! What a 10 mins it was!! Back inside for the first dance, drinks , more food and amazing entertainment the night was rocking!

A huge thank you to Talissa & Jonathan for running around to get the shots and for there wonderful hospitality! Here are some of the images from the wedding:

  • Talissa Fernando-Clark (07.28.2015 | 09:10)

    Thank you sooo much Brett and Richard!! (and Kristie too of course!) The photographs are absolutely incredible! As you know Brett, I have been following your work for a number of years now and have always admired the photographs you produced for other couples on their wedding day! I couldn't be happier with the photographs you have created for Jonathan and I!! So many of our friends and family have commented on how incredible the photographs are and how great you both were on the day with the crazy timings and the bad weather! We can't thank you enough for venturing out in the rain and lying on the wet ground to capture these beautiful photographs for us. Once again you don't fail to amaze! I could only hope to one day be as talented and capable as you Brett! :) Thank you so much again!! Talissa and Jonathan xxx

Super excited to blog the simply devine wedding of Allie & John at Babington House. A gorgeous summer day greeted us as we started out for this wedding and the day didn't disappoint! I don't think there is a better venue when the sun is shining anywhere in the uk. Things just happen so smoothly at Babington, it's amazing.

Allie & John looked fantastic and completely complemented their surroundings. Allies flowers from one of the best flower companies - Passion. She looked amazing in her dress and John and the guys very smart in their bespoke suits with the most amazing shoes I've ever seen!

After a beautiful ceremony the guests spilled out onto the grounds where canopes & drinks were served. The afternoon was as relaxed as a garden party with music and drinks on the lawn. The atmosphere perfect with everyone looking very elegant as they enjoyed the unique nature of Babington. After a gorgeous meal and speeches ,with DJ Nigel in the  house everyone rocked the night away.

Resident DJ Nigel and his company STYLISH Entertainment are sole suppliers of production and entertainment services to the legendary west country venue!

A huge thank you to not only the couple but to there family & friends that made the day run so smoothly. Thanks to James for assisting on this one.. Here are some of the images from their beautiful wedding day.

Our 2015 wedding season kicks off with the simply stunning wedding of Holly & Jonny at one of our favourite haunts of Babington House near Frome in Somerset. The sun shone upon arrival and didn't stop all day and when the sun shines at Babington there is no better place to get married!

Holly looked stunning with make-up by Alex Babsky & hair by Scarlett from Melanie Giles. Her flowers from one of the best flower companies - Passion.Her dress, complete with pockets, from Mews Bridal in Notting Hill stole the show as she walked down the isle to a waiting  Jonny looking very sharp in his bespoke suit.

After the ceremony the guests spilled out onto the grounds where canopes & drinks were served. The afternoon was as relaxed as a garden party with music and drinks on the lawn. The atmosphere perfect with everyone looking very elegant as they enjoyed the unique nature of Babington. After a gorgeous meal and speeches ,with DJ Nigel in the  house everyone rocked the night away.

Resident DJ Nigel and his company STYLISH Entertainment are sole suppliers of production and entertainment services to the legendary west country venue! With Video from the ever present Gary from Gorgeous Films no moment was missed.

What a fantastic way to start the wedding season for us. A huge thank you to Holly & Jonny for allowing us to be a part of their wedding. Here are some of the images from the day:

Our amazing year of weddings finished with a simply devine wedding on the banks of the River Thames with Helen & Jason. At no other than the beautiful venue of Phyllis Court Club. The weather was cold but we were greeted with beautiful blue skies as the day began.

Getting ready at the nearby Hotel du Vin the guys arrived by boat to the Riverside Pavilion to await arriving guests and ofcourse his bride to be. Getting ready in the main club house Helen looked beautiful in her dress by Stella York. With make up & hair by Lorraine Milligan & flowers by Penelope Hunter Flowers. Helen was ready with enough time for a few pictures before she made her way with her father to the Riverside Pavilion for the ceremony. With the winter sun already getting low Helen made her way into the ceremony for a beautiful & emotional ceremony. After which everyone bravely went outside for a very quick group shot of all the guests. It was very important that we made the most of the sinking sun and the couple very kindly gave us 20 minutes for some pictures inside & out of the venue making the most of the winter light & sun.

The afternoon continued with drinks and christmas nibbles in the pavilion overlooking the Thames having ample time for the guests to mingle and enjoy the views. Just before the wedding breakfast was served Helen & Jason went on a small boat on the river for 15 mins - a beautiful wooden boat from Henley Sales & Charter. Ofcourse I jumped in not wanting to miss out on a great photo opportunity!

The night continued after the wedding breakfast with great entertainment from Dj - Gareth Clyde with dancing into the night as the frost covered the river banks.

A huge thank you to Helen & Jason for a fantastic day and a great end to our 2014 year or weddings. Here are some of the images from the day & night:

My fabulous 2014 of weddings is nearly coming to an end with just one more to go to blog. What an awesome way to see out 2014 with the wonderful December wedding of Lauren & Simon at the equally wonderful Babington House in Frome / Somerset.

We arrived early as we knew that there weren't going to be too many shots with daylight so after the guys ran themselves ragged at football everyone started to get ready. After punch and mince pies the families headed off to their rooms with a little time to spare before the ceremony. Lauren looked simply amazing in her dress equipped with pockets! A first for me! With flowers from the every inventive Passion.

Simon looked every bit the part in his bespoke suit and matching everything! No stone was left unturned! Getting ready in the cabin in the grounds of Babington meant Simon didn't bump into Lauren as they headed to the church. As the winter night closed in everyone waited with baited breath inside the candlelit church. The doors opening to gasps as the beautiful Lauren walked down the aisle. The ceremony was great and people then left the church for the short walk to Babington House. The darkness and rain had now set in but Simon & Lauren were still game after a quick drink inside to go back to the church for the pictures! A huge thank you to them for having such spirit!

After a fabulous meal and speeches and simply the most amazing cake ( pork pie ) I have ever seen everyone made there way into the bar to dance the night away with resident DJ - Nigel who certainly got the party started.

A huge thank you again for everyone involved in the day and we thank you for choosing us to be a part of it!

Our fantastic year of weddings is coming to an end with only a couple of weddings left.

November finished with a bang with the beautiful wedding of Hervey & Liz at their own venue - The Fisherman's Retreat in Ramsbottom - Lancashire. 

The day started off with possibly the hardest rain I have seen all year but our fingers were crossed that it would clear in time for the church. Liz looked simply beautiful in her dress - a refreshing change to have a different coloured dress for sure - Hervey looking very smart in his tux -  perfect match for eachother. After a drink at The Fisherman's Retreat Hervey headed off to the church to await his bride. The moment Liz stepped out of the car at the church  - the sun shone down on her- the exact moment!!

After an emotional church ceremony everyone spilled out onto the church path in the low winter sun and it gave us 10 mins or so to capture some images. After which everyone left for the venue we had 5 mins to do a few shots of the Bride & Groom.With the light fading fast we headed back to the Fisherman's Retreat beautifully placed on the hills overlooking Ramsbottom and beyond. After family pictures the wedding breakfast was served. After a fantastic meal & speeches the party got into full swing with entertainment throughout the night. One floor set up as a casino with roulette & cards. A magician wowed the tables as the guests donned fancy dress for the crazy booth! Downstairs the dancing continued with entertainment & singing into the night.

A huge thank you to Liz & Hervey for choosing us as a part of there day. Here are some of the images from the wedding:

Our Wedding year continues with wonderful wedding of Claire & Graeme! Both fellow photographers too so the pressure was on! A bright crisp day met us when we arrived in Ripon at the beautiful location of The Old Deanery.

Graeme was hard at work helping with decorations etc.. I am sure there is a future there for him !! After coffee and looking around we headed off to see the bride Claire who was starting to get ready. Her dress was simply gorgeous and suited the day and surroundings to perfection, with hair & make up by Nicholas Homes & Irene Roozbayani respectively Claire looked stunning and ready to wow her audience with flowers from Utterly Gorgeous Flowers.   After spending some time with her we headed off to see Graeme who was now nearly finished getting ready looking very sharp in his suit. After a lovely ceremony we managed to get everyone outside for a quick group shot before borrowing the B&G for some one on one time! With the light fading too fast we had to work quickly but managed to get some gorgeous shots around the grounds and across the road at the cathedral. The room looked fantastic as did all of The Deanery with stationary by Forever Detail & decorations from Perfectly You Events twinkling into the night. With huge initials in the garden lighting up the night the party was in full swing to the sounds of Val Boyers guitar & singing the night took hold.

A simply beautiful day and a huge thank you to all that were involved in making it run so smoothly. A special thanks to Graeme & Claire for allowing us to be a part of their day. Here are some images from the day:

Our amazing year is coming to an end but still a couple of weddings  to go before the holidays. Mid October saw us shoot the wedding of Emily & Richard at the glorious Babington House nr Frome in Somerset. What a fantastic day it was too. Emily looked stunning in the most exquisite dress with amazing detail & the guys didn't disappoint either looking very smart with Richard in his bespoke suit. After a very personal ceremony in the chapel in the grounds everyone spilled out onto the lawns for drinks & canapes.

We knew the light was going to fade pretty fast and wanted to make the most of any that we had so after 10 mins of drinks we whisked the couple off to make the most of the fading light. A great addition to Babingtongrounds - a cool array of tree lights by DJ Nigel, ( house / resident DJ and his company STYLISH Entertainment are sole suppliers of production and entertainment services to the legendary west country venue)  gave us a lovely background for some late shots. Everyone then made their way into the orangery for a sumptuous meal. The room as always looked fantastic with flowers & table decor FLOWERS by Passion.

Whilst the evening reception continued the rain came as everyone danced the night away to the sounds of resident DJ , Nigel. A beautiful day and a huge thank you to all involved in the wedding. A special thank you to Emily & Richard for choosing us to photograph their wedding day.

If you are getting married in 2015 we are now holding meetings & taking bookings for 2015 dates. Please get in touch to arrange a meeting.

Here are some of the images from the wedding day & night!

The end of September saw us back at the glorious Babington House near Frome in Somerset for the gorgeous wedding of Ian & Storm. A relaxed beginning to the day with drinks on the lawn with people relaxing before the day began. After Ian was ready looking very smart in a bespoke cut suit he joined the guests at Babington for pre-wedding drinks and entertainment! With a great bunch of Oompa Loompa's serving drinks much to the amazement of the guests! With the girls nearly ready everyone made there way to the on site chapel for the ceremony. Storm looked simply beautiful in her dress with a little pink tinge! 

The ceremony went without a hitch after which everyone made there way onto the lush lawns surrounding Babington for drinks & canapes. Naked ramblers stumbled across the wedding party much to the amusement of everyone. With a band playing the mood was relaxed and sublime. This was a great time for me to capture things as they unfolded. With some time for a few family shots we had 10 mins for a few shots of the bride & groom before the evening celebrations. We were treated to big hatted ladies from the Natural theatre group as they mingled with 'real' wedding guests!! The orangery looked splendid with flowers everywhere from Passion Flowers. With more entertainment throughout the meal with Flower pot people! & the amazing Troy illusionist . With everything being captured by not only ourselves but also from the amazing team from Gorgeous Films ( video.) Who we have worked with on many occasions.

After the speeches everyone made there way through to the bar where celebrations took to the dance floor. With music by Radio 1 DJ Hugh Stevens not a person was left off the dance floor. A vintage photo booth entertained the guests into the night as the lighting storm took hold around the Babington sky! As the rain poured the people danced into he night. As always a huge thank you to Ian & Storm for having us onboard there wonderful wedding event professionally planned by Hannah -The Bespoke Wedding Planner.

Here are some images from the day & night:

Our stunning September of weddings continues with the sublime wedding of Suki & Aza at Syon Park House in London. Suki was probably the most on time bride I think we have ever had so it gave a us a little time before the ceremony to do a few shots with her around the Hilton Hotel beforehand.

A short walk over to beautiful Syon Park House the guests & Aza the groom arrived for the ceremony looking extremely handsome in his bespoke suit..

Suki followed not long behind by horse & carriage. She looked amazing in her bespoke dress from India. Walking down the isle to the sounds of quartet singers. After the ceremony everyone left to sign the register in one of the rooms behind the main hall. After which they made their entrance and thus exit down the isle. To rapturous applause everyone entered the courtyard for drinks & canapes to the sounds of the saxaphone whilst the couple looking very elegant with Suki in one of the most exquisite wedding dresses i've seen ,went for a short carriage ride around the grounds. After which they made their way to the guests & families for drinks and celebration. With the light fading faster than we thought we managed to do a large group shot of everyone before taking the couple away for some photographs in a couple of the very opulent interior rooms and to walk down to the orangery where the evening event was to take place. It was a crazy 20 mins but worth it none the less and a huge thank you to the bride & groom for literally running through the rooms to get the shots!

The night continued after speeches with Brazilian dancers which took the house by storm! Dancing the night away to some great music from the Dj and entertainment. A huge thank you to Suki & Aza for their hospitality through the day & night. Here are some of the images from the wedding:

Our fantastic September continues with a great wedding at the beautiful Babington House in Frome, Somerset. We have had 4 weddings at one of our favorite uk locations this year. The weather was only out shone by the venue and the bride & groom, Cecilia & Gavin, a great fun couple.

The day was a wonderful blend of both nationalities & religions. Everyone looked amazing as the sun shone down on the canapes & champagne being served after a wonderful ceremony in the chapel. After drinks and music on the lawns everyone made their way into the orangery for the wedding meal. After the speeches everyone was lifted to their feet by the mexican ( dorito advert) guys! What a party they then started with dancing into the night being taken over by Babington's resident DJ, Nigel there wasn't a person left sitting!

A huge thank you to Cecilia & Gavin for having us as a part of their wonderful day. Also thanks to Hannah, The Bespoke Wedding Planner for putting on yet another very special day. Here are some of the images from the wedding:

Saturdays wedding promised us torrential rain and thunder but delivered beautiful sunshine! We were all prepared with our wellies in the car and despite starting off with rain it literally cleared up the moment Rachel stepped out of the VW camper van and into the church and we mostly dodged it all day finishing with a fantastic sunset!

Church farm in the Wirral was the venue for the wedding of James & Rachel. Overlooking the River Dee estuary and the sea made a stunning backdrop for the hill top marquee of Church Farm. Rachel looked fantastic in her dress and her bridesmaids red dresses complimented her perfectly. James & the guys suited & booted and looking sharp ready to take on the day! After a ceremony at Christ Church in Barnston we made our way to the venue for some photographs. The sun was beating down and after the mornings rain couldn't have been more welcome. I was obsessed with the sky all day as it gave us some amazing clouds! After drinks & canapes on the grass everyone went inside for the wedding breakfast and speeches. With the sun setting over the Dee we headed off outside for a few pictures with the bride & groom who were great fun to be with all day!

A huge thank you to everyone that made this day possible and to Rachel & James for choosing us to be a part of their big day. Here are some of the images from the wedding:
