I am amazed by how moving it is to watch two people commit to each other and to see their families supporting them. Once again I felt incredibly privileged to be invited to witness and record this day for Fran & Dave at their wedding in Stroud and reception at the Bear of Rodborough.
This couple wanted informal shots of their wedding – photographs for people who don’t like having their picture taken. The privilege of shooting a wedding like this was immense.
Another letterpress in the area, this time we are at John Grice’s Evergreen Press. I did some printing and took a few minutes to grab some snaps with five minute’s worth of battery power.
I have had the great pleasure and privilege of working at the Whittington Press for a couple of sessions. Its a big workshop near Cheltenham, with lots of letterpress machines, and type, and paper. Here are some pictures. Click on any of them to view as a slideshow.
