The Pump Rooms, Cheltenham UK.

“Vogue Couture meets Minimalistic Hollywood Glamour”

The day started at The Malmaison in Cheltenham on the most gloriously sunny day. The top floor bridal suite held not only the bride but her bridesmaids, mother & bridesgroom – her guy best friend! Sweet perfume filled the air whilst the classic 90’s old-school music was playing, the champagne was pouring & the most glamorous makeup was being applied. The room reflected three things that the bride was – relaxed, energetic & beautiful.

The moment she swiped the deep rouge onto her lips and slipped on her long silk gloves, I knew this bride was not messing around. High-end Vogue Couture she brought to the day and photographing her was such a dream.

We headed over to The Pump Rooms which was only a short drive away, where we were met with the most stunning architecture that oozed grandeur and opulence. I was in heaven, to say the least. The room was filled with all things white and had such a minimalistic modern edge to it – it truly carried the definition of, less is more.

After the love-filled ceremony, the champagne began to pour and the hair-tingling, body-buzzing music started to play from the Saxophonist and Bongo drums. I was transported back to my Ibiza days and re-lived my youth whilst listening to the coolest house beats that filled the Cheltenham air for the next few hours. I never wanted the music to stop. There were smiles and laughter all around, every corner I looked and it was so incredibly amazing to capture every single person having the time of their lives.

Gracie & Ellis, thank you for choosing me to capture your love-filled day.
