WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT BRYMPTON HOUSE SOMERSET
It’s safe to say that myself and my second shooter Zac had a laugh at this wedding. It was Hannah & Ian’s ceremony at the very grand country manor Brympton D’Evercy in Somerset. It was a venue I hadn’t photographed at previously, so another wedding I was keen and eager to get the best out of.
Hannah & Ian were fun to work with, laid back and chilled, and just wanted the day to unfold naturally, and for us to capture and document it accordingly, and so we did. I turned up at Hannah’s house in Martock for some prep action, before heading to the local parish church in the village, Zac followed Ian and his groomsmen to the local barbers, which turned out to be a fab photogenic jaunt, the scene was starting to become set.
So onto the church, the vicar was fun too, and was more relaxed than some I have come across at the front of house in churches over many years, and I can see why, it’s a serious place, where a serious thing is happening, but hats off to Mr Vicar for taking the bite out of the day, he was very accommodating with pictures, if I had asked to sit on his shoulders “Glastonbury Festival” style he would have i’m sure told the organist lady to help with giving me a foot up, and I even got a mention during the ceremony, which was unpredictably different.
The wedding venue itself was quite simply stunning, sweeping tree lined drive way leading up to this spectacular manor house, it has been described as the most beautiful house in England, with lots of photo opportunities and enough light and airy spaces to get stuck into some nice gritty wedding photography.
I try and make the whole day for couples relaxed and fun, not hassling them for pictures around the piano, or star jumps off the wedding car, although I am insured up to five million may I add, this sort of wedding photography style just isn’t for me, documentary photojournalism is the game, and couples that book me go with this reportage wedding photography style.
Everyone had a good time, Hannah and her bridesmaids never really stopped laughing, which is all good, all we had to do was to capture those fleeting moments.
Thanks for your time in looking at my blog.
