Liz & James’ Wedding – St. Bartholemew’s Church & Tortworth Court, Bristol

Last week I shot Liz and James’ wedding – a great honour and a pleasure because they are two of the loveliest people I know. They chose to get married in their local church – St. Bartholemew’s in St. Andrews, Bristol. The reception venue was Tortworth Court, just north of Bristol in Gloucestershire which is a beautiful country house hotel complete with stunning gardens and an arboretum. My first thoughts walking around the place were ones of panic, not that there weren’t enough places to shoot but too many! How would I choose?!

For Liz and James’ friends there’s a private slideshow available here – the password to which is Liz’s maiden name (all lower case). The main album will be available from Monday by following the “get your images” link above.

    I really like that shot towards the end where they’re walking in a field. It’s so natural and pretty.
