Last year I was given the opportunity to be Amy & Tim’s Pennard House Wedding photographer. If you haven’t heard of it, Pennard House is a bit of a hidden gem in terms of Somerset wedding venues. Tucked away in some of the most idyllic countryside, this Georgian manor and coach house is set in secluded gardens and surrounded by woodland and meadows. Photography wise, I was spoilt for choice! It also happens to be somewhere close to my heart, just 10 minutes away from the site of Glastonbury festival. In fact this beautiful country house is usually taken over at that time by music industry types and is full of festival memorabilia. There’s also a nod to Glastonbury with it’s own tipi field that guests can hire for accommodation.
Anyway you get the idea. I found it a pretty special place and it’s going on my list of potential venues for my own wedding!
Pennard House Wedding Photographer
I had my assistant Claire working with me that morning. Claire spent some time with the guys getting ready whilst I was with Amy and the bridemaids. There was a bit of hiding behind curtains going on as the guys went on patrol around the grounds! Amy & Tim had planned for an outdoor ceremony but alas, it wasn’t meant to be. The rain should have gone by the morning but the forecast was a dud. I can’t speak highly enough of Team Pennard for leaving the decision to move indoors right up until the last minute though. But it didn’t take long for the sun to poke it’s head out shortly after the ceremony.
After a few cocktails we went off to explore the grounds for some portraits while some of the guests got stuck in to the limbo! The grounds really are stunning and offer plenty of variety for backdrops. You can even get married at the adjacent church if you want to.
Amy & Tim love travelling, which is something they incorporated into their colourful wedding theme. The bright flowers bouquets and arrangements were provided by Tilly Tomlinson Flowers. I loved the way these complimented the bridesmaids dresses!
I should really mention a few other suppliers who contributed to the day as there was quite a lot going on:
Ben Harrison for playing acoustic guitar during the ceremony and reception.
Luverrly for the delicious ice cream.
The Little Taquero for feeding hungry souls in the evening. They do the best Mexican street food!
Kelly’s Hero played the acoustic first dance.
On Demand for helping to blow the roof off the stables in the evening!
I absolutely loved capturing this wedding. In fact some of the images you see here made it into my Best of 2016 selection. I met so many nice people too. It was so relaxed and so fun at the same time and a privilige to be part of – thank you so much!
