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

We recently visited some friends on a farm near Tetbury, Gloucestershire and found these adorable little puppies. I was lucky to have my camera with me as I came there straight after a photo shoot. We had lots of cuddles before they leave for their new owners in a couple of weeks time.
