My day started in the groom’s hotel room, which was a bit frantic as they had booked 20 rooms for the guests but the hotel didn’t have any running water. This had everybody running around franticly trying to find a room with water, but it was sorted just in the nick of time. A coach took everybody to the pub to grab a quick drink before the ceremony started, which allowed me to get a few candid shots of the guests arriving.
The ceremony at St Mary’s church was beautiful. The vicar presented it wonderfully, with the backing of a 10 person choir and bell ringers announcing both the bride’s arrival and departure from the church.
You could spend hours taking photos at a Crownhill Fort wedding. There are many tucked away passageways and tunnels to explore and a huge parade ground with many high vantage points, which is perfect for the formal group shot.
With the groom, Adrian, coming from a military background the fort was a perfect setting for their wedding. Adrian and Gwen even fired the cannon to signal the start of dinner. I was asked to capture a photograph of the cannon firing, which I have uploaded in video but have dubbed out the swearing as it was pretty damn loud!
When I left the party it was in full swing and I hope Adrian and Gwen enjoyed their honeymoon in the Seychelles, with a couple of nights on their very own private island for 2 days.
As usual a few of my favourites from the wedding are shown below. Please feel free to share on social media or comment.

The cut in the video is due to me swearing so have edited it out.
