This is Katy,
She is the person behind Leo & Bib.
Katy commissioned me to do a commercial shoot for her because she has two magazines who currently want to run features on her and her work.
Her cards and collages are really lovely, so creative, the detail that goes into them is amazing, and I have a little stash of postcards that I send out to friends for birthdays and other occasions.
She describes herself as freelance paper artist from Somerset, using a combination of paper cutting, illustration and collage. She likes to use old books, vintage paper and old magazines and newspapers to create her designs.

Becky and Gary are such a sweet couple and of course they had an incredibly pretty, hand made, crafty, clever and whimsical style of wedding. Becky and all her bridesmaids got ready in her immaculate house (my house is never that tidy) and she was so chilled that even when children turned up she kept her cool.
Becky and the wedding party were transported to the wedding in a beautiful vintage bus, which really fitted her theme.
The wedding was at the local church and photographs were taken outside the church because that’s where her parents had been married 20+ years ago.
The reception was in the local village hall and they’d decorated it beautifully, I loved the table decorations of yellow buttons which matched the bridesmaids dresses, I also loved the sweetie bar and visited that area often.

I do love photographing weddings, I love the fact that what I photograph is taken out of my hands and all I can do is document what unfolds in front of me. I am simply a documentary photographer, trying to ensure that I am where the action is at all times (not always possible), trying to stay near the bride and groom whilst giving them room to breathe, and trying to capture all the little moments that happen, those interactions between people as they come together to celebrate an immensely important day in two peoples lives.
I also love the fact that you never know what is going to happen next, well obviously there’s a timeline that hopefully gets stuck to, but you just never know what the children will do next, or what will be said at the speaches, or what the drunk uncle or cousin will say next.
Weddings are fun.
This wedding was simply gorgeous, everything about it was beautiful and relaxed and happy, everybody was happy, well i think everybody was happy, or they were when i turned my camera on them. (more…)

Nathan & Ruth’s pre-wedding shoot is right here – http://www.charlottephotography.co.uk/nathan-ruths-beloved-shoot/
I started my day off rather early at The Swan Hotel (www.swanhotelwells.co.uk) in Wells photographing Ruth getting ready with all her sisters and friends. Ruth’s nephews amused everyone quite a lot with their antics and then her parents arrived to help with the dresses.
The dress came from Chobham Brides and Ruth’s mum Cath added a few extra’s to the wedding dress which was stunning, Cath also made all the bridesmaid’s dresses, which were all amazing, she’s very clever.

Nathan & Ruth were getting married in August and this was their pre-wedding shoot which I like to call a beloved session.
These photographs were all taken in Wells, Somerset, some were in front of Wells Cathedral, some were in Penniless Porch, some were in the very beautiful Vicars Close and others were at The Bishops Palace gardens, which was where their wedding reception was going to be.
The weather really was glorious and we all had a lot of fun doing these.

Martina and Kris’ sunny Somerset wedding was stunning.
They were married in Bruton church and then everyone travelled up to Martina’s family farm up in Batcombe where they celebrated and partied in the sun for the rest of the day and night.
It was such a lovely day filled with lots of lovely people and I really did have a lot of fun spending the day with them.
Incidentally on the same day up in Batcombe, Prince William & Kate Middleton were also attending a wedding in Batcombe, but not my wedding. How rude, they should of popped in to say hi.
Here are some photographs from their lovely wedding, it makes me smile just looking at these.

I really love lanes, and rural roads and dry stone walls and even fields with cows in mooing at you.
It must be the 17 years I spent in London, all that concrete.
There is something about a lane that frames a photograph, it can really turn a picture into a photograph (if you know what i mean) something worthy of hanging on your wall.
Here are some photographs of lovely lanes and walls and cows down Axbridge way, oh and there is a really lovely family in there too.
