I’ve been in the thick of it of late and it’s been a while since I last blogged. So I’m really pleased to show you a first from this summer with Pippa & Andy’s Somerset garden wedding. They were married at a pretty little church in Babcary, before heading across the village for a marquee reception. With Andy being in the army they had an accompanying guard of honour which always adds a little bit of extra specialness.

Brympton House Wedding Photography with Anna & Christian: what a beautiful day this was! Anna & Christian are such a fun loving couple, and you know all the guests are having a great time when it takes 45 minutes to organise a big group photo! Their friends and family formed an eclectic Italian-English-Nigerian mix, and were treated to the best Martini Espresso’s. Yes, eventually I succumbed!
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.
I’d been looking forward Jemma and Ben’s Coombe Lodge Wedding for what seemed like an age. I remember when we first met how excited they both were, and that excitement rubbed off on me! Coombe Lodge is an absolute gem of a venue with a great team behind it. If luck’s on your side, it’s also one of the few wedding venues in Somerset where you can catch the setting sun all the way down to the horizon. You just need to take a short walk into the adjacent field. Timing it perfectly, Jemma & Ben lucked out big time that day. I made sure we milked every last drop of golden sunlight!
Stick an eclectic mix of Brummies, Welsh and Iranians in one of Somerset’s finest wedding venues, and what you’ll end up with is a party of handkerchief waving epic proportions (not your usual hankies mind, these ones are bling). I had no idea things would get this crazy, but Joe & Leyla’s Orchardleigh House wedding will stay in the memory for a very long time!
