A roaring good time at Pennard House

Laura and Dan’s spring wedding was a roaring success. Laura is used to ‘keeping’ things in order at Longleat Safari Park and this wedding was very well looked after. Lots of personal touches made this a unique and fun celebration with some very special guests. All in all a photographer couldn’t ask for two calmer, loving and photogenic characters- check out the cake topper for a clue as to who I might be referring to ;)

Jade, Lee and old Bertie.....adventures at Stanton Manor

Take an awesome couple, gather all their favourite people, find a special venue, add a stylish marquee, throw in some sweets, outdoor games and some seriously cool transport. The result? Some very happy campers ;) Jade and Lee took all the ingredients for a fantastic May wedding and tied them up with deep blue ribbons. Congratulations guys, thanks for an amazing day :)

Somewhere over the rainbow (cake)...

As well as wedding season, James Griffiths Photography is heading into party season - birthday party season as our daughter and all her friends turn 4- where did that time go?! One of the many highlights of her birthday this year was this awesome birthday cake made by Aunt Sally’s Cakes. Our daughter was absolutely over the moon (well, rainbow) with it. It was a 4 year old’s rainbow sparkled, unicorn dream! Tasted pretty good too :) Sally, of Aunt Sally’s Cakes, did an incredible job. As well as some amazing novelty cakes Sally does make wedding cakes, especially things that are unique and a little alternative so do check her out-

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 :)
