Tiffany and Tim’s wedding
{Lovington, Ston Easton Park and Orchardleigh House}

Last Sunday was an early start to be in Somerset for Tiffany and Tim’s wedding day although many of the people involved in this wonderful day had travelled many more miles as this was another transatlantic union with guests flying in from all corners of the world.  Earle was in Lovington ready to meet Tim enjoying the early morning sunshine while I made my way on to Ston Easton Park where Tiffany and her family were all staying.  It was a busy scene as I walked into meet everyone, hair and make up well underway, particularly pretty flowers being delivered and lots of excited people coming in and out…a wonderful atmosphere.  The morning raced on by and before too long Tiffany was ready to move back to her room to dress and have a few photographs with her wedding party.

Earle had by now met with Tim at his parents home and enjoyed the opportunity of the lovely country surroundings photographing Tim with his best man and ushers during their preparations and early arrival at St Thomas A Becket Church in the picturesque village of Lovington.

Tiffany was ready to leave Ston Easton in plenty of time for the 30 minute drive to church.  The tiny church was full and the atmosphere quite wonderful with the harpist playing and sunshine pouring in through the ancient windows.  Tiffany and Tim’s marriage ceremony was a perfect match to this environment with a lovely blend of  british and american tradition.  We spent a short time after the ceremony outside  amid lots of hugs and confetti before making our way to Orchardleigh House and the wedding reception.   The sun continued to shine and summer had seriously arrived allowing everyone to fully enjoy the beautiful grounds and view from the terraces of this lovely house.  We decided with Tiffany and Tim to wait until after the wedding breakfast to photograph them together in the grounds of Orchardleigh allowing plenty of time to socialise with their guests.  Party time kicked off with the band performing for the first dance and the energy continued for the rest of the evening giving a fantastic party and packed dance floor all night!

Earle and I send our warmest congratulations to Tiffany and Tim on your marriage and what a superb day for everyone there!  We have selected some of our favourite images so you all can have enjoy a flavour of this beautiful celebration, we always welcome anyone who would like to leave a comment so feel free to add yours, just click on the box below..

Chrissie and Roger’s wedding
{Brympton House, Brympton d’Evercy}

In between Christmas and New Year Earle and I photographed the very beautiful marriage of Chrissie and Roger in the wonderful Somerset countryside.  Brympton d’Evercy is located just outside Yeovil and the whole wedding day was taking place at Brympton House with the invaluable assistance of Rosie from  Wildrose Events.  Chrissie and her bridesmaids were all busy with hair and makeup, dresses and flowers when we arrived so I had a wonderful time with them photographing their progress along with what must be the most original wedding shoes I have witnessed a bride wear….silver Converse trainers!  Earle found Roger and his band of buddies to photograph their preparations and found they all had followed the ‘Converse’ theme in their individual colours and this includes Rob, Father of the Bride. 

The civil ceremony took place mid afternoon in the atmospheric Castle House and a lively drinks reception was enjoyed by everyone in the main house immediately afterwards.  It was during this time we were able to borrow Chrissie and Roger for a moment or two for some photographs away from their guests.  A superb wedding breakfast was rounded off with an incredibly entertaining bestmen speech which roused a standing ovation!!  The wedding party then moved across to the Orangery for the arrival of more friends for the evening party and music.

Earle and I send our very warmest congratulations to Chrissie and Roger on their marriage and a perfectly wonderful wedding day, we hope you enjoy looking at a few of our favourite images here on the blog while we complete the proofing process in full.  Please feel free to join in with our blog and add a comment, we love to hear from you:-)

Candi and Paul’s wedding

With the sun shining early Saturday morning, Earle and I head off for Yeovil looking forward to a wonderful day photographing the wedding of Paul and Candi.  We are finding more and more of our clients are coming together from differing countries, Paul and Candi are another very lovely couple who have found each other despite the miles which originally seperated them.  Candi from America and Paul from England met while working in Germany and this day was all about their marriage in Paul’s home town of Yeovil in Somerset.

It was an early hour for Candi and Paul’s ceremony at 11.oo am, they wanted to make their day last as long as it possibly could and treasure every moment of their first day as husband and wife.  Earle spent the earlier part of the morning with Paul and his bestman while they were getting ready for the ceremony and the walk down to Yeovil’s St Johns Church in the centre of town.  Candi was at a hotel close by and this is where I headed off to meet her as the hairstylist and makeup artist were busy taking care of all things beautiful with the ladies of note!  With bride, attendants and mothers all looking totally wonderful we were ready to leave for church in a very smart Bentley right on time.

Word had got out that a wedding was taking place in the church and on Candi’s arrival there was quite a crowd of onlookers ready to greet her and her mum Brenda as they made their way to the door where Earle and the vicar were waiting for them.  Having taken my place in church I was able to grab some great shots of Paul and the guests in their seats waiting while Earle took care of those important shots outside the church with Candi and Brenda.  Those images of the groom waiting for his bride to walk up the aisle are always a wonderful study of anticipation and expectation.

Following a beautiful ceremony complete and signing of the register Candi and Paul walked down the aisle as Mr and Mrs Kent and out into the sunshine.  We had plenty of time around the green outside church to take the formal family group photographs and some lovely candid images while all the congratulations were poured out to Candi and Paul.   Next stop was the Hollies Hotel in Martock  for the reception and party.  The whole day was planned to be unhurried and relaxing with plenty of time for the wedding guests to have time to chat and enjoy their surroundings and company, the Hollies provided a perfect place for this all to happen.  We were able to spend time capturing some lovely images of this intimate and informal reception before taking a short time out with Candi and Paul for some of that special time photographing the Bride and  Groom enjoying a little time as just the two of them. 

The party was kicked off in the evening with a brilliant band providing the perfect music to get everyone up and dancing rounding off the perfect wedding day for Candi and Paul.   Earle and I send our warmest congratulations to you Candi and Paul on your marriage and your very special wedding celebration.  Thank you both for your very kind hospitality.
