Fall in love with Holly and Justin's October wedding...

What nicer way to see in the change of season then photographing Holly and Justin’s fantastic October wedding. The colours were a celebration of autumn and made for a truly vibrant day. After their service at Yatton Methodist Church, Holly and Justin choose Aldwick Court Farm to continue their celebrations- a regular venue for me and one of my favourites. The evening was a very cool barn dance style celebration, a throw back to Holly’s 18th birthday and therefore personal to them and very popular with the guests! The whole day was filled with brilliant personalised touches, including a flock of tiny (plastic) ducks ;) Congratulations to this lovely couple. Here are you’re highlights :)

Love and confetti rains down on Lauren and Owen at Clevedon Hall

Before embracing all the amazing colours and vibes that Autumn brings I thought I would indulge in one more throw back to summer. Lauren and Owen were a couple I had the privilege to work with in July 2017 but I haven’t yet shown off this beautiful wedding on the site- so here it is :) I’ve had an opportunity to revisit this day myself recently when putting together a fabulous album for these guys. This was a fantastic day at Clevedon Hall which was rounded off with a huge burst of beautiful confetti above the guests on the evening- very cool to photograph. Thanks again Lauren and Owen, it was an absolute pleasure :)

October at Aldwick....

Rain showers were no match for Holly and Justin’s vibrant Autumn colours or the little yellow ducks hiding in amongst their very happy guests. A quaking (sorry) time was had by all at this fantastic October wedding in Yatton. Here’s a little preview to keep the warmth going into the chillier evenings…

Living the high life

Making the most of a bright and breezy day to teach my daughter to fly her kite. The Griffiths family are enjoying some much needed down time on the Cornish coast. There are some fantastic wedding venues down here and I am looking forward to capturing more moments in this amazing part of the country :)

Memories of last summer...

Planning for this summer weddings I have been reflecting on some of the highlights from last year. Hopefully 2018 couples will get to enjoy some smashing weather like Lauren and Ryan had last year. Their wedding fell on a beautiful hot and sunny July day, perfect for exploring the Vineyard and playing games on the lawn. It was a family friendly, fun day and the weather allowed everyone to make the most of the Leigh Park Country House Hotel, which is a great venue. Here are some of the sunny highlights. 

Something New!

Hey guys,

There have been some exciting changes at James Griffiths Photography HQ this month.

Firstly I've introduced a very cool and high quality presentation product that will be included in all wedding packages.

Introducing my wooden prints box.

These beautifully crafted alder wood boxes will keep your precious memories, in pristine condition, for all your family and friends to see. Also included is a matching wooden USB stick to finish off the look.

Instead of having my super cool logo ;) couples can personalise, for a small additional cost, the front of the box with names, dates or any other words special to them. 

In addition I will now be including 75 highlight prints in all packages, this will be for new customers and those who have already secured their date. 

Watch this space for highlights from one awesome April wedding.  

James :) 

It's not a wedding without a bride and a hen...

It was a pleasure to join Anita and George at St James Church in South Wraxall. It wouldn't be August in Britain without a little downpour but who doesn't love a cool umbrella picture or some white wellie boots?!! A midday trip to Anita's grandparents gave the most unique picture to date, a bride and a chicken! The animal theme ran throughout the whole day with some great details on the tables at the reception in Wick Farm. The fun grew as the day went on with some great live music, including a rendition or two from Anita's father. A fantastic day with these lovely people. Congratulations Anita and George :) 

It's almost time!

More to come...

Autumn's on it's way- but who cares if it looks like this!

It's taken a little while to get this BEAUTIFUL autumn wedding onto the blog but I promise you it will have been worth the wait! Vintage cars, flower girls playing the drums and an autumn inspired cake to reflect the change of season. Claire and James kept it classy at St Peters in Camerton and Priston Mill- which never disappoints. Congratulations guys :)  

Love a good display

Couldn't resist putting these beautiful things on a shelf.

So much so I needed two. 

Most of the old ones belonged to my late father in law Geoff Davis and I'm sure he would be pleased they are pride of place in my office. 

You'll always be over my left shoulder Geoff.

Wedgefest 2017 Highlights

Summer has (sort of) arrived and the wellies, glitter and hats are out for festival season. Lower Hill Farm Campsite Shrewsbury was the setting for, what is now, my favourite festival ever- Wedgefest. Forget Glastonbury, V Festival or Green Man, this event was something unique and not just because of the way better than average toilet facilities! It was a reflection of two fantastic people, Nik and Ali, showcasing their love for their friends, family, the environment, beer, music and lots of very cool lighting! This couple worked so hard to create an amazing experience for everyone and their family and friends were willing volunteers. The Real Junk Food Project in Birmingham provided some fantastic food, raising awareness of the project and turning wedding catering into something really interesting. Congratulations guys on a great event :)
