When describing Beck & Chris’s I could go on about the setting: at the beautiful Great Tythe Barn on the outskirts of the picturesque Cotswold village of Tetbury. I could spend a long time going into detail about the insane floral centrepieces, the dress so epic it had to be suspended at perilous heights, the classic cars and the delicious food.

All of these things were spot on brilliant. But what trumped everything is the warmth, kindness, smiles and laughs coming from Beck, Chris and a very special group of family and friends.

With a soundtrack of traditional hymns in the church, a string quartet during the reception and the soul excellence of Union Street during the party it was an phenomenal day that I’m getting a tad emotional just at the thought of!

Anyway I’m going to leave you with some more of their words, not mine, and the hope that our paths will cross again.

“Richard is quite possibly the best photographer out there!! I met him and his wife at a wedding fair in London and we hit it off straight away! Looking through his collection of professional pictures (not just of weddings) he explained his style and it matched our thoughts perfectly. Since that moment he was easy to contact and made the whole process seamless. We had a few skype calls leading up to the day which really helped us picture how he’d be working with us on the day. The on the day he was amazing! Arriving early, he guided us through the day right up until the evening, making everything run so smoothly that we didn’t stress about anything! He also arranged for a 2nd photographer (who was also amazing, thank you Amy!) to work alongside him just in case his wife went into labour, at his own expense.

He has already some photos and they are incredible, capturing moments we’ll keep forever.

Book him, book him, book him!

And a few more words when the final gallery was delivered: “Thank you so much the photos are literally the most amazing photos ever! I am bowled over by them, as is everyone. We sat through them on Saturday with my mum and dad, my mum cried pretty much the whole way through! Thanks Richard, again the pictures are just literally the best thing ever.”
