Clevedon Hall - Alex & Doug

Clevedon Hall Wedding Photographer

I was recommended to Alex by Steve who’s wedding I shot in 2018. After meeting up for a drink, they booked me for their wedding at the wonderful Clevedon Hall.

A month before the wedding we met up at Clevedon hall to have a walk around the venue and the surrounding areas to discuss photo ideas for the wedding and see why its one of the top venues in the South West. With the pier being unavailable on the wedding day, we took the chance for some snaps there.

Wedding Day

The day itself quickly came around, and Clevedon Hall was looking epic in the summer sun. A real Jewel in the crown of South West wedding venues!

Alex was looking very calm during prep, and I had a great couple of hours capturing her and Doug and their respective teams get ready!

The ceremony was outside, and they don’t look much better than the Clevedon hall outdoor ceremony space! With vows and confetti nailed, Alex and Doug enjoyed a relaxed drinks reception.

The wedding breakfast was in the impressive orangery. Which is fully airconditioned! A huge plus point on a day like this.

During our prep we had discussed when sunset was, and that we wanted to get down to the “coast” for some shots with the setting sun. However as can be the way, the speeches ran late, resulting in the final word of the best mens speech being followed by Doug saying “we’ve gotta go guys!”. The three of us running down the driveway with minutes to spare!

It's moments like this that experience and competence really pays out. Not panicking, and being composed, and getting camera settings correct and quickly, which can be especially challenging shooting into a low sun and using off camera flash as I was in some of the photos. All the while keeping your couple relaxed and ideally enjoying themselves!

It worked perfectly, and resulted in one of the best ten minutes shooting of my year. A genuine “high five” moment that left me buzzing!

That wasn’t the end of the day either, with some great dancing, magic and shotskis!

It was a pleasure working with you and we are so happy we booked you.

Thank you for working so hard both on the day and afterwards in order to send the photos to us. We will treasure the photos forever ?
