The Knowle Country House. The wedding of Clare and Alan by Swinky Photography
I LOVE this venue and loved loved these guys; they are a super-cool, relaxed and very funny couple! They are just so much fun! It was one of those wedding days where I had to pinch myself and ask ‘am I really working’?! It was a pleasure to see the whole warm sunny day unfold in this beautiful location. The great thing about the Knowle is all the options for photography; especially on a hot day like this was. The ceremony was just the right balance of emotion and laughter and the day unfolded effortlessly with so many giggles and smiles along the way. Thanks both! I’m still super glad you chose me as your wedding photographer! Lots of love! CJ xx
