Beautiful winter wedding at Beechfield House

Saturday, January 24, 2015

On a glorious and sunny winters day, just a couple of days after Christmas, what better way to celebrate with your family and friends, than with a beautiful winter wedding. That's exactly what Becky and Andy did, set in the stunning gardens and hotel at Beechfield House, near Melksham.

I had met with them st Stourhead a few months ago for an engagement shoot, and as I entered the hotel it was lovely to see a selection of those photos in vintage style frames to welcome the wedding guests. For me, the biggest advantage of an engagement shoot is that it builds a better relationship between the happy couple and myself, so on the big day I am already a familiar and friendly face.

An engagement shoot also gives the couple much more confidence in front of the camera, as they have more experience in posing for me and have more confidence in their natural smile and posture. As soon as I photographed Becky and the bridesmaids final preparations it was clear that she was very comfortable and natural in front of the camera, and the images look stunning.

And when I saw Andy with his groomsmen awaiting the arrivals of guests, I was greeted again by a wonderfully friendly and natural smile. This was just the start of an incredible day, and it was a joy to share this special day with Becky and Andy, finished off in style with fireworks.

These are a selection of photos by Jamie McDine of Wiltshire Wedding Photography.

"Myself and Becky would love to say a 'super huge thank you' for taking the photos for our Wedding. We couldn't have met a nicer, considerate, friendly and professional guy like Jamie. If your looking to get married and you want someone to make you feel comfortable and take great pictures Jamie is your man." Andy & Becky

Did you know that we produce wedding videos?

Jamie and Jackie are best known as photographers, who work in a friendly and unobtrusive way to capture your special day in stunning images. However, Jamie's background is in film production, and he also produces beautiful wedding videos in Wiltshire, Bath and Somerset.

So what is Jamie's film background?
Jamie is a film producer with an international background, experience and award-winning talent. He has produced music videos for the likes of Ian Brown and Just Jack, and directs promotional films for companies locally and internationally, including the German Tourist Office, English Heritage and Wiltshire Council.

His documentaries have been screened at festivals, cinemas and picked up several film awards around the world.

When Jamie got married in 2010 he found that noone in the South West was producing high quality wedding videos, and certainly not at an affordable price. Since then he has produced stunning wedding videos with the same attention to detail and quality as he would any professional film production.

He has the experience, skills and equipment to produce the perfect record of your special day, and because he does this every day, it is always at an affordable price.

Inspired by his photographer wife Jackie, Jamie has also become a very successful wedding photographer.  Jamie works in a very friendly and unobtrusive way to ensure you and your guests can concentrate on enjoying your special day, and you end up with a beautiful wedding video that really tells the story of the day - perfect to relive time and time again.

Winter wedding at North Cadbury Court

Thursday, January 8, 2015

In November we photographed Sarah and Paul's special day at the stunning North Cadbury Court, tucked away between Wincanton and Yeovil. With the ceremony taking place in the church next door to the reception venue, it was not only a beautiful, but also a practical location for a truly memorable wedding day. 

Having kept it secret from the guests, the best man delivered a surprise half way through the ceremony, with the wedding rings flying down the aisle, brought by Harris Hawk! Safely untied from his talons the rings made their way on to Sarah and Paul's fingers and the marriage certificate was signed and sealed with a kiss. 

Such a lovely couple and a wonderful wedding venue - hopefully we'll be back at North Cadbury Court again soon.

Beautiful Spring wedding at Stanton Manor

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

There are lots of wonderful venues across Wiltshire, Bath and Somerset, but this is one of our favourites for photographing a wedding.  Stanton Manor is tucked away in the village of Stanton St Quinton between Malmesbury and Chippenham.   We've photographed and filmed several weddings at Stanton Manor over the past 4 years, and in March 2014 Jamie returned to photograph Kristina and Darryl's big day.

What makes it such a great place to photograph is the large and light bridal suite, perfect for photographing the brides final preparations, as well as a simple yet stylish ceremony room and lots of period features throughout the venue. Best of all are the gardens, that offer a beautiful backdrop to your wedding photos and plenty of hidden locations to relax away from the eyes of your guests whilst we take your couple shots.

We had met with Kristina and Darryl for an engagement shoot at Stourhead a few months before and as a result they were both so natural and confident in front of the camera, as well as having an even better relationship with Jamie as the photographer.  A wonderful couple and a wonderful day at Stanton Manor.
