September’s one of our favourite months of the year, a mixture of summer and autumn with a good helping of incredible sunsets. Here’s a look back at a busy month of September photography, filled with city weddings, countryside dos and a sunset engagement wedding shoot – plus two cute doggies! Read on for some September wedding inspiration…
Today we’re throwing it back to 2016, to a fabulous autumn wedding in the Cotswolds, the marriage of Matt and Hayley. The wedding was a full weekend affair (we love wedding weekends, always such an incredible atmosphere) at the beautiful Cripps Barn in Bibury – a traditional stone barn in the Cotswolds.
Being the day the new Doctor Who is announced (woop for a lady!) we had to share our sneak peek from this Doctor Who wedding yesterday as it is rather fitting! Our Dr Who superfan groom Marco protects his companion Verity from all that might challenge them in their lives ahead….
Verity was in stunning bespoke Sharon Bowen-Dryden separates whilst Marco’s jacket was cut from the same reel of cloth as 11th Doctor Matt Smith’s! It was a day of unicorn balloons, bbq eats, space hoppers and [not many] circus skills – we loved it! Jodie Whittaker may be the 13th Doctor but at their Hunsbury Hill wedding yesterday it was all about Marco and Verity!

We always want to be in top condition when we shoot your wedding, so would usually only allow ourselves to shoot two weddings in a row maximum. However, an influx of enquiries from super lovely people we just couldn’t say no too, means we end September and our busiest summer ever with a stretch of four! We had such a ball with these guys, here are tasters of these four fabulous couples this week.
Sarah grew up in the pretty village of Bartlow in Cambridgeshire where her parents still live, so it was wonderful for her and Matt to have their celebration in a huge marquee in the garden. We love this shot as they took some time out to stroll around the village with us…

We were excited about our first Tipi wedding with Polly and Adam. After a church ceremony, guests gathered at Horningsea Pavillion where the most beautiful tipi was set up, yet it really came alive at night, as this gorgeous end of the night shot shows 🙂

We knew there would be a subtle Star Wars wedding theme with Emma & Sean, but in the end it was much stronger without their knowledge *insert force-was-with-them joke here* thanks to a surprise visit from some Star Wars VIPs! So much fun at Hitchin Priory!

We instantly clicked with Claire and Stuart, and were very excited to shoot their wedding at the fabulous High Rocks in Tunbridge Wells, a fabulously unique wedding venue – look it up!
Taking a stroll amongst the rocks after dinner our couple were very brave on the cliff edge, yet looking beautifully calm in this taster shot, love it.

We first got to know Kirsty and Michael a few years ago when Kirsty was Maid of Honour for the lovely Katie, and these guys were a whole lot of fun, so we were thrilled when they got in touch about their own Anstey Hall wedding. Fellow theatricals, the day was a feast of colour, kilts and fun, not to mention biscuits (yes!), so their taster could have come from all manner of moments, but we particularly love this shot amongst the bubbles.

After their pre wedding shoot at Shepreth Wildlife Park, we knew Leeming and Ian’s wedding would also be fun, and we weren’t wrong! A special colourful wedding car, crazy golf, hungry hippos and a casino made sure no guest was short of anything to enjoy! Yet it was this quiet moment in the setting sun we loved as a taster of their Chippenham Park wedding, this fun but gentle couple quietly enjoying a break from the party….
