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.

The goddess the town was once named after, Sulis

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!

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.

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.

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

  • As we put together our Choose Adventure Workshop, I’m getting to relive some amazing weddings in some mind blowing places, so pretty much double lucky I’d reckon ☺️
  • Dream destination wedding on the island of Rhodes in Greece
  • Kaylee and Scott, getting married on the best day of the year to get married 🔥
  • 7 years of saying yes to adventure together. Marrying you was hands down the best thing I’ve ever done, and somehow each year it just gets better and better. Having that person in your corner to fight every battle you face, and celebrate every joy with you just makes this whole life thing so much more incredible! Love you monkey, thanks for being my human! Every year you grow into a more awesome human I just love being around, and still get giddy thinking is mine ☺️
  • Hair wizardry by the amazing Laura @nixonmakeup (one of our all time faves), making Jenna’s curls just perfect - Sex in the City Sarah Jessica Parker eat your heart out...
  • What an honour to witness so much beautiful love.
  • When the mother of all rain storms hit mid reception, everyone retreated into the Prynnsberg manor house and continued the party - soaked through, but happy as all hell! The vibe at Jenna and Jeff’s wedding was amazing! Cannot wait to blog this gem soon!
  • Truth moment right here: the more I fall in love with “real” moment shots and share them on here like my heart tells me to, the lower my engagement. So what do I do? Keep posting the real and authentic, hoping it reaches people who appreciate it? Or focus only on the IG “hero” shots that guarantee the double tap so I can feel popular? It’s quite amazing to see how platforms like IG have shaped in some ways how we as humans interact with things - favoring the polished and curated over the real. Authentic is such a buzzword for wedding photographers at the moment - but a lot of what I’m shown is not that... who are some of your favorite photographers of the authentic? Three of our faves are always @wearetheparsons ,  @kikitography and @the_woods_photography for keeping that shit real 🙌🏽
  • Can’t believe it’s been two years since we shared Paros with these two beautiful souls! What makes this memory even sweeter, is they have grown to become good friends of ours 💜
  • Dreaming of gorgeous sun drenched days as we head off for 3 days of Download music festival in the pouring rain. Hope we don’t Drownload...

  • This weekend exceeded all expectations! 🙌 Sooo many good bands, the friendliest people, and delicious veggie food. The mud and rain even made it a proper English festival experience 🌧 This was our first @downloadfest and we WILL be back! Thank you @the_szerd for enjoying the same noisy music as me and always being my band buddy 😘
  • This summer in Europe has been epic for bands so far! Another one from our “must-see” band list. Alice in Chains 🔥 Definite highlights were this song, Them Bones, and Nutshell, which Jerry Cantrell dedicated to Layne Stayley. Totes emosch 😥 @aliceinchains
  • I played bass for a long time and this man was my bass crush 😍 #justinchancellor was worth every second of the 20 year wait to watch this man play 🙌 ... and I got his plectrum ! That’s getting framed.
  • Tool 🙌 I waited 20 years to see this band and it finally happened last night in Berlin, of all places. They were a massive influence on my own band and were actually one of the reasons @the_szerd and I started dating over 15 years ago. I even played in a Tool tribute band back in the day. Excellent times!
  • People watching from the shade.
  • Exploring the narrow streets and alleyways of Stone Town, Zanzibar. This place reminds us so much of the old part of Jeddah with the African/Arab cross culture and architecture.
  • It may be “sun’s out, guns out”, but it’s “balls out” at sunset when the heat finally let’s up.
  • Excellent vibe on what’s left of the beach at high tide.
