Hammet House is a luxury country house hotel in beautiful Pembrokeshire. In glorious landscaped grounds the hotel sits on the famous river Teifi right on the Pembrokeshire Ceredigion border. A luxury bolthole set in secluded grounds, Hammet House is a hidden escape that nestles discreetly amongst Pembrokeshire’s glorious coastline and countryside, and Ceredigion’s spectacular beaches and heritage.

Smaller functions can be held in the Old Dairy; larger ones in our bespoke green giant tipi in a field close to the farmhouse.

Screen Shot 2014-05-12 at 15.26.36My favourite thing to shoot is the every day life around me and I feel with certainty that it is this that separates my wedding photography from others. My inspirations come from quirky portrait shoots such as you find on Pinterest, books with curled corners about photo journalism and the music photographers of old and I love that I can pull all of that together into my style to create something unique on your wedding day.

Firetops style is mainly informal photography, which some people label as reportage or documentary. I take a relaxed approach to wedding and portrait photography, making subjects feel at ease in order to capture real moments and feelings.

To prepare you for your special day, we arrange an informal free pre-wedding photo session to get to know each other a little, so that you’re more relaxed on your wedding day.

Try to see your wedding the way that you’ve always imagined it. I want to make that image real. I think that often the simplest things in life are the most precious. The most perfect weddings celebrate what is human and imperfect and the occasional hiccup is all a part of the unpredictable energy and beauty of the day. It’s what adds to the memory and makes each wedding unique.

 

 

atp-logo The opportunity to photograph your wedding is the perfect assignment for me.  I have photographed weddings in many of the top venues such as Great Fosters, Sopwell House, Fanhams Hall, The Grove,Hanbury Manor, Notley Abbey and Waddesdon Manor’s Dairy to name but a few.  I always strive to capture that special moment and I really enjoy working with people who appreciate the value of great images.
