Previously KNOT JUST PICS. Same shit, different name.

Bath

Bath has been somewhere I have wanted to go since the time I first discovered it while doing my undergrad degree. As we were going South to visit my oldest friend Storme in Bournemouth, we decided to do a Westerly detour to Bath. It was known as Aquae Sulis under the Romans (nearly 2000 years ago) and as the name may suggest, it is famous for its thermal springs which supply the town with beautiful warm water. We spent an amazing (and wet) time exploring this beautiful city. Most buildings in Bath are made from the local, golden-coloured Bath Stone which gives the town a lovely glow and uniformity that makes it seem like it has just stepped out of the 18th Century. We even splurged and when to the super fancy modern Bath Spa which has four levels of natural springs and a rooftop pool overlooking the town and Abbey. Unfortunately we werent allowed to carry in cameras so we got no pictures inside. Bath was probably our favourite place that we visited in our time in England and I hope our pictures do this picturesque town some justice.

Waiting for the (very expensive) train to Bath.

Our first glimpse of the Norman cathedral and the Roman baths.Its weird to think people have been walking along this road for more than 2000 years and this definitely lent our whole time in bath a beautiful historical weight.

Bath-6

The goddess the town was once named after, Sulis

Bath-7

The stinky water from the hotsprings stains the rocks a sulphorous orange colour. Despite the weird colour and smell, the water is believed to have healing properties and can be drunk for all sort of ailments from gout to infertility.

Bath-8 Bath-9

The water, although smelling a tad eggy from the sulphur was beautifully warm. I can see why people living in cold old England would be keen to strip off and jump in these hot springs!

Bath-10 Bath-11 Bath-12

The main Roman pool where all the posh Roman men used to swim.

Gratuitous food shot, maybe. But finding vegan sausage rolls was no small feat and made both us and our tummies very happy!

Bath-19 Bath-20 Bath-21 Bath-22

The Bath Abbey was enormous! Its hard to imagine that people have been worshipping here since the 7th Century and this is the place that virtually all kings and queens of England have been crowned from the first king of England, King Edgar (yeah we hadnt heard of him either) to Elizabeth II.

Bath-23 Bath-24 Bath-25

It was really bizarre walking around the Bath cathedral and literally walking over people that had been buried there :/

Bath-26 Bath-27 Bath-28 Bath-30 Bath-31 Bath-32 Bath-33 Bath-34 Bath-35

In addition to the quirky uniformity of the golden coloured Bath stone, Bath has another quirky feature, a number of apartments and house built in a semi-circular shape.

Bath-36 Bath-37 Bath-38 Bath-40 Bath-41

The Royal Crescent is the most famous of these semi-circular buildings which over looks a gorgeous park and botanic gardens.

  • These awesome humans are getting married today and we can’t wait to be a part of it!
  • It’s all in the small things.
  • I love how the light is cast onto Elaine’s dad as he walks behind her. While it may look like Elaine is walking down the stairs into a black hole, I can assure you that it was actually her ceremony just in the room down below.
  • Last minute lippy touch up before she’s off to get her marrying on 💃🏽
  • Ed’s face here as he waits for Amanda to come down the aisle is just everything! .

  • Yesterday on our run I came across a wet, dirty little bunny. I thought there would be no way I would be able to catch him, but he hopped up to me and I scooped him up and carried him home. He seems to be settling in okay, now just to see if our two grumpy old man buns will accept a newbie, otherwise we are going to have to find this little charmer a home. (There is more bunny than is visible here...)
  • This babelicious golden light makes my heart skip a beat, Lisa and Gareth are kind of alright too...

  • Matri and Nick rock/paper/scissored who would do their vows first. Just one of many ways they made their day completely theirs. Their intimate city wedding is up on our blog now x
  • Fell in love with this feeling. We had just finished up some pics with Dee and her girls(and bridesman) pre ceremony and she was about to walk out to where her dad was waiting to take her to Emile. It was just a fleeting moment as she walked out of the house, but her face here just absolutely captivated me with all the happiness, contentment, nerves, and excitement it held.

  • So this is us...Partners in life, adventures and all things.

We met at a music festival, fell in love over our common passion for developing our own photos and many long and late night deep conversations about the world, life and pretty much everything in between.

Somehow that was 13 years ago, and those two arty alternative kids are married, have bunnies, a crazy two colour eyed cat called Bowie, a book collection too large to fit comfortably in our house and have somehow managed to piece together our love of photography and traveling the world together into our business of getting to document the love stories of awesome humans. And this is how we get to make our living? It’s so awesome it feels like cheating.

We love the shit out of weddings and getting the chance to share these amazing adventures with people. We get that letting people in to share something as intimate and personal as a marriage is a really big deal, and it’s something that never stops making us really stoked that people trust us enough to make their memories.
