Macro nature photos ~ Camilla Reynolds photography

There is something magical about getting really close to tiny things. I enjoyed taking these macro shots in my garden on a rare Saturday off. The actual size of the spider was a quarter of an inch. The other photos are of a snail shell, spider webs, a tiny 3mm fly caught in the spider’s web, poppies, and bokeh created by droplets of water.

Wisteria photo shoot ~ Cotswold family & wedding photographer

What a gorgeous time of year for a photo shoot, I just can’t get enough of the blooms! I had some stunning sessions last weekend including a yellow field, gardens and wisteria. I have an opportunity this week to do a couple of mini sessions (in a yellow field, with wisteria, your choose!) in/around Stroud at a reduced rate.  The mini sessions would be … Read More Wisteria photo shoot ~ Cotswold family & wedding photographer


Giffords circus at Fennells Farm ~ “My Beautiful Circus”

What better way to spend a bank holiday than going to see our favourite Giffords Circus. We loved the new tent (soft velvet cushions!) and the show, the pizza was delicious too! It was great to see the brilliant Nancy back in the show, here are a few of our favourite acts.


Spring in the Cotswolds – Camilla Reynolds photography

Last weekend I grabbed my camera and photographed things that inspire me – textures, colours, flowers and castles. Here are some of my favourite shots from various places in the Cotswolds – Painswick Rococo garden, Westonbirt Arboretum, Beverston Castle and my own garden.

My daughter and I spend a lovely afternoon at Painswick Art Couture enjoying the amazing wearable art and the sunshine 🙂 I am glad I had a camera with me, and took a few photos even if we didn’t have the best view.

This was shot one afternoon last week when I took my children for a walk at Coaley peak in Gloucestershire. I am so pleased I had my spare camera in the car! The children were delighted to see a very low flying glider and that the pilot waved back at them 🙂

Melksham Court Gloucestershire wedding venue ~ Cotswold wedding photography

A few weeks ago I visited an amazing new wedding venue in Gloucestershire – Melksham Court. The 17th century Cotswold estate is simply stunning inside and out and is licenced for weddings, including outdoor ceremonies. Parts of it were still being completed while I was there, for example the indoor swimming pool was still being build, but what I saw was just beautiful, I fell in … Read More Melksham Court Gloucestershire wedding venue ~ Cotswold wedding photography
