I went to France last week and took my film camera. With mild trepidation I set about capturing my holiday in France on film. My old Olympus has a faulty light meter so I had to use one on my phone, then my own knowledge of lenses and light to estimate my settings and quite frankly, I came home thinking I would get a whole load of nothing from nine rolls of film. It’s been a long time since I used a manual film camera regularly and despite learning this way right from my A-Levels I didn’t have all that much confidence in myself. I told a friend that I’d be happy with just one killer shot…so I’m pretty bloody delighted to be happy with a hell of a lot more than that. There are 66 images in this blog post. Sixty six! And you may not like them all, but I do and it was my holiday so I’ll show off if I want to. These are my highlights.
This wedding took place on a beautiful day in the south of France…an international jaunt for Shoot it Photography! The venue, Logis de Puygaty was nothing short of breath taking and as well as serving up a wonderful view for the wedding they provided exquisite service, rooms and food. Out of literally 1000’s of photos this is just a small snippet of this couple’s big day which excludes a few moments of reflection, tears and laughter that the couple quite rightly want to keep to themselves. With that in mind, I have put this album together to portray a hint of the wonderful wedding that they shared and just enough to give you an idea of how fantastic it was. The rest, they keep. xx
Much love and huge thanks to these two for asking me to be their photographer and for their very kind words below.
– The Bride
It’s been no secret over the past few months that I was more than a little bit excited about being asked to photograph a wedding in the south of France. Last week it finally arrived and I jumped on a plane to Bergerac, caught a taxi to an area near Aubeterre and prepared to photograph the wedding of Anna & Neal.
This was a first time experience for me with regards to work and I not only jumped at the chance but relished the challenge, giving it everything I had. It was an experience I will never forget and one that I loved every second of.
Here are a few sneak peeks of some of the results…

Thank you to both Anna & Neal for asking me to photograph their very special and beautiful day. x
