Wedding party watching bride and groom kiss - Picture by Oscar and Rose Photography

Congratulations to Oscar and Rose Photography, the winner of our September Picture of the Day vote. This fantastic picture received the most votes from our readers to become the ninth picture to go through to our Picture of the Year vote in January.

Emma from Oscar and Rose told us a little bit about the picture…

“When Abi told me she was designing and making all six of her bridesmaid’s dresses, I knew this was going to be a wedding with a difference. Each dress was totally different, and Abi looked stunning in her dress too.

“The groom, Ant, is in a band and had 2 best men, so I knew everyone was going to be really up for trying some different shots from the more traditional wedding images, and because there were six bridesmaids and 2 best men, their friends obviously mean a lot to them, so I wanted to take a shot that wasn’t just about the bride and groom.

“I’m so pleased to have had the chance to shoot Abi and Ant’s wedding, it was one of the best weddings I have been to.”

Our Bump Shoot

Pregnancy 'bump' photo shoot with Oscar and Rose Photography

Some of you may already know by now that we (Kim and David, the owners of The Wedding Community) are pregnant with our first baby. Baby H (as she / he) has been lovingly known for the last 7 ½ months is due on 24th May.

We don’t usually post features about personal things on The Wedding Community Blog, but we are just too excited about our soon-to-be baby that we wanted to share something extra special with you.

I (Kim) have so far had a wonderful pregnancy and have absolutely loved every minute of it. We have especially loved watching our ‘bump’ grow. I was absolutely delighted when the fabulous Emma of Oscar and Rose Photography agreed to photograph me and our ‘bump’, and of course I jumped at the chance of having these pictures taken so we can look back at them with our child in years to come.

Emma is an amazing photographer and calls herself ‘A stylist with a camera’, and you can see why. She has a real creative flare and sees opportunities for pictures that most wouldn’t (unless you are a photographer of course!).

I went down to Emma’s studio, which is a beautiful old railway carriage on a farm near Lacock in Wiltshire. We had such fun photographing both inside the carriage (whilst it was raining) and out and about on the farm when the sun came out.

I was a little unsure about ‘posing’ for these pictures, but Emma is just such good fun to work with so I let her direct me as I knew the end result would be worth it. Emma’s style for the shoot was very much about fun and vibrancy with a few stylish shoots thrown in the mix.

The pictures arrived in my inbox the very next day and I nearly cried. They are all absolutely amazing. I’m so delighted that I have had the opportunity to experience Emma’s amazing photography skills and that we have these fabulous pictures to treasure forever of our ‘bump’.

So, as our little one continues to wriggle away (I’m sure s/he is planning their escape route!), we would like to share with you our very special ‘bump’ pictures taken by the super talented Emma from Oscar and Rose Photography…

We are delighted to share these beautiful pictures with you from the wedding of Emily and Ian, taken by Oscar & Rose Photography. Emily and Ian were married on 18th June 2011 in a civil ceremony at the Tithe Barn in Bradford-on-Avon, followed by a reception at The Beeches Farmhouse B&B.  We just love the hand-stitched embellishment the bride gave to her dress, and the groom’s specially made Superman sporran…
