Nina & Simon had a pretty English Country garden wedding in the quaint Somerset village of Norton Sub Hamdon. Nina’s amazing lace dress was made by her mum and she was accompanied by her sisters as bridesmaids in colourful floral print dresses. They were married at the village church, and rode on the back of a steam tractor to the reception at Simon’s parent’s B&B. The marquee in the garden of the mill was decorated with haybales and bunting and colourful meadow flowers in welly boots on the tables. When the guests arrived they were greeted by the Yeovil Town Brass band and enjoyed Pimms on the lawn before sitting down for an Afternoon Tea, served on mismatched vintage china, with favours of homemade chutney. Here are some photos of their beautiful day.

Time for the next instalment of Cat & Wayne’s wedding at St Osmunds Church in Salisbury. Over the festive period I am sharing some extended blog posts of my friends wedding photos so they can relive the memories while they are away on their long honeymoon in Asia. This is getting rather lengthy, but it is really quite nice to share so much from one wedding.
We left off in the last post with Wayne waiting at the altar and begin with one of my favourite photos ever: I just love this moment between the three best friends, just as things are about to start…
Everyone headed off to Trafalgar Park for the reception, I got stuck on the other side of the road for ages, and next up are the bride and groom portraits…

Rebecca & Steven (or do I call him Sam, I got completely confused!?) got married at St Mary’s church in Andover followed by a reception at Esseborne Manor. Rebecca looked like a fairy tale princess in an amazing dress of lace, ruffles, embroidery and brooches, in a gorgeous grey- blue colour. She had a whole troop of glamourous bridesmaids in black evening dresses, and pretty flower girls in white. The boys complimented the look, in black tuxedos.
It was only fitting Cinderella had a carriage, which her parents surprised her with as she left for the church. They married at St Mary’s in Andover, a church where many generations of Rebecca’s family have been wed, and were joined by family and friends from all over the country. After the ceremony they left for the reception at Esseborne in the horse and carriage. We planned to stop on the way for some photos in the fields which surround the country hotel. I love a good cornfield, and luckily we found one still accessible in a huge wedding dress. We did some romantic photos and then some waving-your-arms-around-like-an-idiot photos (their idea)
Then off to Esseborne, which was decorated in black and white, with tables named for favourite films. Its a lovely venue out in the Hampshire countryside, and everyone enjoyed drinks out on the lawn before sitting down to eat. During the speeches the families had made a slideshow of old photos of the happy couple, from childhood to their holidays together. I hope this set of wedding photos adds another set of memories- Congratulations Mr & Mrs Sandbach!
Here’s a selection of highlights from the day. The full gallery is online for friends and family here.
