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.

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 :/

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.

  • First dance cuddles. I’m always such a softy for a good first dance! Whether that be something beautifully choreographed (if that’s your vibe), or a simple side to side shuffle. It’s the time in the night when any formalities are done, and the settling in to just enjoy the  rest of the evening has begun ☺️
  • Goosebumps and loving caresses.
  • We’ve never been big fans of set up photos where a couple stands for ages while some off camera flash is set up to get some backlight... we like to keep things more natural and moving. But this happened at the end of Kate and Brett’s couple shoot as I was driving our car up to take them back to their reception. Our car lights illuminated Kate and the slowly dripping rain, and Andy made some magic with it.
  • People always say rain on your wedding day is good luck... but bucketing rain and then a break, to grab some pics? Even more lucky 🙌🏽
  • Kate, ethereal forest nymph.
  • Rain yesterday? What rain?! Kate and Brett were fire 🔥

So amazing working with the talented babes from @Nixon makeup. @james_peters_film at one of our faves @crystalbarncountryestate with Kate in a stunning @chanellecindy_bridal dress (SO many more pics of the dress to come 😍)
  • These two couldn’t keep their eyes off of each other the entire day. Their love was such a joy to witness and recharged my wedding stoke in a massive way!
  • Kerry and Shane’s music video is up on our Vimeo page. Go check it out x
  • Weddings bring out all the powerful emotions. Of those we love, and of those we miss.
  • Bright light and big beach cuddles 💜
  • As much as I love a good, set up arty shot, sometimes those in between moments are everything 💜
  • It rained most of the day for Mari and Seb’s wedding, but just before sunset, we got this magic 🔥

  • 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.
  • Ocean and people watching from a shadey spot. The guy on the right, dressed in tradition Masai garb, is David. We had along chat about tattoos before he sold me a bracelet.
  • Dear god it’s hot. But also quite nice.
  • Hello Zanzibar 🤗 Can’t wait to get in that water!
  • We’re a hazard when we’re walking the streets cus we’re always looking up and bumping into people. Obsessed with the beautiful Dutch architecture!
  • If you really want to blow your mind in Amsterdam, try walking round an art gallery after visiting a “coffeeshop”. 🤯
  • Yesterday it was sunny, but the overcast sky and light drizzle suit this place way more. #wechooseadventure_scotland #wechooseadventure
  • Exploring Edinburgh at night. In this place, if it’s not raining, it’s about to rain. #wechooseadventure #wechooseadventure_scotland
  • Made a special mission to see these guys in Glasgow last night. Absolutely epic! @coheed
