Somerset wedding photography- Tanya and Chris’ wedding in Brympton House

Tanya and Chris chose Brympton House in Somerset near Yeovil for their beautiful  wedding full of deep gorgeous Autumn colours.  According to “Country Life” – Brympton House is  “the most beautiful house in England”.  I could not have agreed more: Brympton House is a unique venue, full of character and endless photo opportunities.

The weather was kind to us and I managed to go through all informal  reportage and formal photos without getting wet. Brympton House has featured in the Oscar-nominated film Chocolat and a few other Classic British Dramas. It is always a pleasure and a very special experience to shoot at Brympton.

 

Bath wedding photography-Anastasia and Liam

Shooting a wedding in Bath city centre is always great fun. It provides loads of fantastic photo opportunities to create stunning wedding photographs.  Anastasia and Liam’s wedding was one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve done this year. Anastasia did her wedding preparations at their flat in Walcott Street.  After a short pre-ceremony photo session in the blossoming garden nearby, we headed off to the Guildhall. Anastasia looked simply beautiful, and I recall, that when I was taking photos of the couple outside the Guildhall, a passing girl said to her mom: “Look mom! She looks like a princess!” Can any comment on a wedding day get better than this? 🙂

A real princess and her happy husband-to-be were just a perfect looking couple who chose me to photograph their intimate wedding in the heart of Bath! What a wonderful day it was!

A summer wedding at Petrovskiy Island, St.Petersburg, Russia

Mid November…cold frosty mornings, occasional sunshine… I feel lucky if I manage to escape an unexpected shower, still frequent at this time of year. This transitional time between British Autumn and British Winter makes me long for Summer, a Russian one, in particular.  Last July I was in St. Petersburg where a friend of mine, who does House Styling and Floristry for weddings and events at Desire Event asked me to photograph the wedding decors she created for some weddings. Amongst the flower pots of lavender and camomile, you will, eventually, find a snap shot of the bride and groom.

 

Somerset wedding photography – Ant and Katie’s wedding at Brympton House

Katie and Ant’s wedding was a truly amazing event and one of my favourites Somerset wedding photography sessions. I had the honor to be part of. The wedding  took place at Brympton House in Somerset near Yeovil and lasted over three days. Closest Friends and family gathered together at Brympton house on Friday evening  for an intimate candle lit dinner at the grand Brympton House Kitchen featuring  medieval stone walls and an old fire place.

Most of the guests arrived at Brympton on Saturday morning and I had an opportunity to take some candid shots of them in the morning sunshine. Katie and Ant were both very excited but relaxed, which allowed me to take some lovely pre-wedding shots. The ceremony was held at the Brympton Church with a finishing touch of a sword arch organised by Ant’s mates- all RAF officers – at the end of the ceremony. This provided us with a perfect classic confetti picture!

After a series of romantic shots around the lake and in the Brympton Garden, it was time for the wedding breakfast. After the ceremony guests moved into the Orangery for the evening party with drinks and dancing.  What a magnificent sight it was when the moon came out and lit the house while the wedding party were chatting and sipping champagne around the camp fires.

Sunday’s programme was traditional English games: archery, cricket and skittles.

The climax of this day’s celebrations was the Father of the bride’s wedding surprise present- the helicopter – which arrived out of the blue with no one expecting it and whisked the newly married couple away for their honeymoon.

Thank you, Ant and Katie, for inviting me to witness and document your exceptionally beautiful wedding.
