Natalie and Alexander Wedding Bittenham Springs, GloucestershireA Beautiful Outdoor Summer Marquee Wedding

Samantha Wilson Photography | Wedding Bittenham Springs, Gloucestershire


It was amazing to second shoot for Claire Basiuk Photography  at Natalie and Alexander’s wedding back in July.  They very bravely chose to have an outdoor ceremony at the spectacular Bittenham Springs venue in Gloucestershire.  Luckily the sun was shining all day and the setting couldn’t have been more beautiful.

I began shooting the day with grooms prep, where there was plenty of champagne to be had! Natalie and Alexander had met whilst at University in Loughborough (my home town) so there was lots to talk about, including the most frequented pubs in the area!

The ceremony was both romantic and personal, with touching readings from the Brides Brother and Grooms Sister. The rest of the afternoon and evening was spent enjoying the sun and drinking pimms on the lawn.  Following an amazing spread of food there were some funny, emotional and amazingly humbling speeches from Natalie’s Father, Alexander and the Best Man.  It was incredible to hear that Natalie’s Grandparents had recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary – what an inspiration!

Then finally towards the end of a truly special day and just before the party really kicked off, we were spoilt with a fantastic golden hour for some couple shots down by the water.

Thanks again to Claire Basiuk Photography for allowing me to capture this amazing day with you and congratulations to Natalie and Alexander.

Claire & Stu Wedding at Elmore Court, GloucesterAnd Next Day Party in Malmesbury, Wiltshire

I have known Claire and Stu for nearly 12 years now.  Truly one of the best couples I know, I was honoured and excited to attend their wedding back in May.  The ceremony and reception took place at the absolutely stunning Elmore Court in Gloucestershire and we were blessed with a beautiful, sunny spring day.

The following day close friends and family were invited to continue the celebrations at Claire’s parents house in Malmesbury, Wiltshire.  You couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend.  It had it all, great moments, emotion, plenty of dancing, and lots and lots of laughter.  Congratulations Claire and Stu and thank you for hosting such a fabulous wedding.

Here Comes the BrideBridal Prep at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago

My high school best friend Anna, asked me to be Maid of Honour at her wedding in Chicago.  Maid of Honour duties prevented me from shooting the entire wedding but I made sure I captured the bridal preparation during the morning.  I love seeing the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready for the big day, but this was so very special to me to be apart of the day for one of my very best and oldest friends.
