I’m delighted to show you some of my favourite photos from Tom and Bethan’s Gants Mill wedding. Gants Mill provided the perfect setting for their relaxed wedding on a sunny day in September. Located just outside Bruton in Somerset, it’s owned and run by a very welcoming Greg and Elaine. As it also happens to be their home they only hold a limited number of weddings per year. It’s an idyllic setting nestled in a valley and surrounded by green hills and fields. The gardens are beautiful and well kept and made for a lovely backdrop for their portraits. Greg will happily organise a tour of the historic mill for you on the day too. I loved the place and hope to be back one day soon!

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!
