GETTING MARRIED IN GLOUCESTERSHIRE?
LOOKING FOR A GLOUCESTERSHIRE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER..
Who captures all the chaos and good times?
Hi! I’m Jonny. If you’re looking for a documentary style snapper who shoots weddings in and around Gloucestershire, then you, my friend, have come to the right place.
I love my job. It’s amazing in that it permits me to travel up and down the UK, and beyond, to places I’ve never seen before and see sights that I never thought I’d see.
Much as I love a good weekend of travel, it’s really nice to shoot in my home country from time to time. Now, lots of British people who live in places whose names end in “shire” (Monmouthshire, Herefordshire, Lancashire, Hertfordshire and so on…) will tell you that they are “from The Shire”. This is not true. These people are mistaken. There is only one “Shire”, and that is Gloucestershire!
Biased? Perhaps. But Gloucestershire is one gorgeous slice of country and has proved one of the most popular wedding locations in the UK time and time again. Kate Moss herself chose to get hitched here (Southrop, since you ask. And no, I didn’t shoot it. I was already booked. Sorry, Kate.) and who are we to argue with catwalk royalty?
Even if you don’t put much stock by celebrity trends, Gloucestershire boasts postcard-ready village churches, glorious rolling countryside and over 150 potential wedding venues to choose from. It’s also right slap bang in the middle of the Cotswolds which is arguably one of the prettiest places in the country (if not the world).
Sprawling country estates, picturesque church spires and even the odd castle, Gloucestershire is a genuine smörgåsbord of venue choice. It was also, for your information, where Edwin Budding invented the very first lawnmower. So, now you know.
I’ve had the pleasure of shooting many, many Gloucestershire wedding venues. There’s the amazing Matara Centre, a Grade II listed Regency home surrounded by 28 acres of immaculate grounds, the lavish Cowley Manor with its multi award-winning spa, or Oxleaze Barn which is, frankly, the stuff rustic Pinterest board dreams are made of. Stroud Brewery is nearby too if you and your betrothed wanna go really hipster and throw a beer festival bash with more tweed waistcoats and artfully trimmed beards than you can shake a stick at.
Based in glorious Gloucestershire
A recommended supplier at a whole load of local venues
A proper photojournalistic snapper
Into taking “real” photos of real people
A believer in natural and unposed images

I am not…
Going to make you pose or pull silly faces
The type to try and stage a great shot
Going to miss a thing at your wedding (or turn up on a combine harvester)
