A beautiful engagement shoot, free with every wedding booking!

Thursday, April 23, 2015

Over the past couple of years we have really enjoyed photographing some beautiful weddings, and sharing the most amazing day with such lovely couples - many of which have gone on to become good friends as well.  We work in a very friendly and discrete way, and it's amazing how quickly the bride and groom feel so comfortable with us photographing them, and relax in front of the camera.

In 2013 we had our first ever engagement shoot, or pre-wedding shoot, with Stephen and Jasmine.  It was such a great way to get to know them better, and for them to pose together for us, all at the setting of a stunning National Trust garden.  As a result they had some beautiful photos that they displayed at their wedding reception, and could use for invites and change of address cards.

When it came to their wedding day, they already felt like good friends and were so at ease and comfortable with us, that the photography was natural and relaxed right from the first moment we arrived for Jasmine's bridal preparations.  In fact, when we arrived at the church we'd never seen such a relaxed and confident groom in front of the camera!

Since Summer 2013, we have had a few pre-wedding shoots at beautiful locations around West Wiltshire and in every case, the photos we've taken on their wedding day have been even more spectacular than usual.  It's the small things like knowing how to stand, or pose whilst in each others arms, without it looking stiff and uncomfortable, and in a lot of cases learning how to smile - to make sure you both look as happy as each other!

Learning these things before the big day just means that you are absolute naturals in front of the camera, right from the start of your day - and you can just concentrate on enjoying your wedding day!

With the big difference that it makes for both the couples and their wedding photos, we decided to give away a free engagement shoot with every wedding booking that is made at the moment.  Just get in touch for more information on 01373 472880 or email: jackie@ivisualise.co.uk

And we're looking forward to take some beautiful photos of some truly wonderful couples in 2015.

Wedding ceremonies at the Guildhall in Bath

Monday, April 13, 2015

The world heritage city of Bath is filled with beautiful buildings and steeped in history at every turn.  The Guildhall is no different, with it's own rich history and full of interesting stories, especially from Victorian times. Nowadays, being run by Bath and North East Somerset Council, it makes for a perfect wedding venue.

We have photographed several weddings at the Guildhall over the past couple of years and always love returning - not least for the excellent registrars.  As well as a stunning entrance to the building, it boasts a very dramatic ceremony room - the Alkmaar Room is the former law court and makes for a stunning setting.  The venue is also filled with lots of lovely spots and decor for beautiful wedding photos, away from the eyes of all your guests - allowing you to look your best and feel more relaxed in front of the camera.

Here are a selection of photos from three different weddings that Jamie of Bath Wedding Photography photographed at the Guildhall in 2014.

Samira and Matt's Spring Wedding at the Guildhall in Bath

Mandy and Dan's Summer wedding at the Guildhall in Bath

Rachel and James' Summer wedding at the Guildhall in Bath

Not only is the Guildhall a beautiful wedding ceremony venue, but it also has the perfect spot for couple shots just across the road - in the Parade Gardens.  So if you're getting married at the Guildhall in Bath and would like stunning photos to treasure your special day, then contact Jamie and Jackie of Bath Wedding Photography on 01373 472880, or email: jackie@ivisualise.co.uk

Beautiful Wiltshire wedding ceremonies at County Hall, Trowbridge

Thursday, April 9, 2015

As you may know, Trowbridge is the county town of Wiltshire, and in County Hall, it now boasts a wonderfully refurbished council building and a spectacular library. Years ago couples would enjoy their wedding ceremony in the building too, and after several years away in a portable building across the road, Wiltshire Council have relaunched County Hall as the new home for beautiful wedding ceremonies.

Reopened in 2014, my first wedding at County Hall was in the smaller ceremony room for a double wedding celebration! Helen and Roger enjoyed their wedding ceremony last June, shortly followed by brother Ray getting married to Jodie! The room is light and intimate for a smaller wedding, and the exterior of the building provides a more spectacular and grand backdrop for photos.

Then in Autumn 2014 I returned to County Hall to see the newly refurbished large ceremony room on the first floor, and to photograph Lexy and Matthew's wedding ceremony.  The decor in the room is very much in keeping with the classic exterior of the building and grand staircase, and their day was made even more special with the groom's father officiating the ceremony!

And finally, I returned on a beautiful winter's day to photograph Leah and AndrĂ©'s wedding ceremony in the large ceremony room.  There are so many wonderful backdrops at County Hall, that lend themselves to beautiful photos of your wedding day - so if you're getting married at County Hall in Trowbridge and would like stunning photos to treasure your special day, then contact Jamie and Jackie of Wiltshire Wedding Photography on 01373 472880, or email: jackie@ivisualise.co.uk
