The Matara Centre - Charlotte & Robin's Wedding

- 24 Apr 2018 -

What I love about my job is the variation. One day i'm photographing a conference, the next a family portrait and the next day a wedding. Weddings are ace, the fun vibe that usually comes with it makes it a joy. I love being surrounded by happy people and bounce off their energy.

Being centrally located in the Cotswolds, means that there are plenty of weddings happening through out the year (actually I reckon it must be one of the most romantic areas of the England!) and so I therefore every year photograph a lot of glorious weddings.

The Matara Centre stands out as being a little different wedding venue. Tucked away in the Gloucestershire countryside you can easily miss it. However once you do find it, it's a bit of a magical gem with nooks and crannies that charm you as you wander round each corner. 

Charlotte & Robin were both wooed by its magical nature, and as they and there family gathered there for their wedding on a cold and overcast day in March you'd be excused for thinking it was sunny just due to the abundant excitement in the vacinity!  

I first met up with Charlotte (and her entourage), who were putting the finishing touches in getting ready...

Robin & his merry men were all suited and booted...!

Yay they did it... let's get this party started.

Robin keen to announce the planting of the tree...

For someone who hates having her picture taken Charlotte is ROCKING IT!...

Wow what a room!

Robin calms people down in time for his speech...

...and for Chris the best man to wind/stir things up a bit!

Poor Robin! The stages of embarrassment to follow...

Sparkler time...

Are you in the mood for dancing...?

Ugh oh? Trouser split... 

Don't worry, gaffer tape always fixes everything...!

Congratulations Charlotte & Robin, what a fab day.

Charlotte & Robin were kind enough to write a testimonial about using me as there photographer...

"Absolutely amazing wedding photographer! Professional and totally blended in with wedding guests! The photos that Ben managed to capture completely sum up the fun and beauty of the day- He’s a very clever man. If you’re hesitating booking him, rest assured, you won’t regret having him there on your big day. It’s the best money we spent! Ben went way and beyond to ensure that he got the shots that we had requested and his sense of humour and good nature made light of some of the more stressful parts of the day. Ben was a wonderful pleasure to have around."
