Sarah and Tash got in touch three days before their Somerset wedding having found themselves without a photographer at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances. We were delighted to have been able to step in and help! With just a couple of days to plan we didn’t have long to sort out logistics but we managed to arrange everything and blimey was it worth it!
We arrived in Mells, Somerset having never been there before on the beautifully foggy morning of their wedding day. It just so turns out that Mells, ‘a small Somerset village with a big history’ is by far one of the prettiest villages in Somerset with its secret garden and endless listed buildings.
Sarah began her day in the super stylish Talbot Inn surrounded by friends and family. The Somerset coaching inn was also the reception venue and it looked absolutely sumptuous with its rich décor and low lighting. Tash and her loved ones got ready a short walk down the road at Hollycroft, a 15th century stone cottage with bags of character. Tash was surrounded by a flurry of activity as the morning progressed, even Hendo the couples beloved dog was invited to the party! When ready, both women looked stunning in their complimentary Valentino dresses and all that stood between them and their ceremony was the short drive to Shepton Mallet and Kilver Court where the romantic outdoor ceremony was to be held.
By the time we arrived the sun was shining and Kilver Court looked magnificent set as it is in the Somerset countryside. All awaited with quiet anticipation as both women glided towards the dovecot and each other to make their vows.
After a truly moving ceremony the guests enjoyed a few drinks and canapés in the gardens and then it was off back to Mells for some photos of our newlywed’s in The Secret Garden and along the Mells lanes avec bicycles. Finally, we sauntered back to The Talbot for more drinks, a fabulously fun first dance helped along marvellously by ‘The Bonfire Band’, some food and a lot more celebrating!
Thank you, thank you, thank you to you both for choosing us to photograph your beautiful day as we really cannot express how much we loved being there!
