terri & steve tormarton wedding the compass inn


The friend who recommended me as a photographer described Terri as being kind, thoughtful and a lovely person..... and I couldn't agree more! At our engagement photo shoot Steve proved to be the same...quiet and good natured and very easy to work with... On the day Steve's Best man Greg did a great funny speech and also helped lots to organise the family group photos..thanks Greg!


This was a sun drenched Saturday wedding in Gloucestershire. A family wedding  with lots of close friends catching up and enjoying the summer sunshine! There were lots of kids and this always makes my job easier as a photographer - they always end up making people laugh and  thats often when the best most natural photos happen.


Wedding venue: The Compass Inn, Tormarton, nr Badminton, Gloucestershire, GL9 1JB.

wedding ceremony: which took place as the sun shone through a canopy of vines above us - a perfect venue for a small intimate ceremony .

 wedding food: 2 course followed by plates of fruit and an amazing naked cake ( then a hog roast in the eve and not forgetting an old school sweetie bar)

wedding colours:  white and champagne which looked great beneath the natural green leaves throughout the conservatory

your job, little man is to gently sprinkle the petals on the carpet just before the bride comes.. oh dear they accidentally got tipped up in the doorway! Page boys at weddings so often help everyone to relax - what a lovely moment captured!
