This wedding has reaffirmed my love for the countryside. I think Somerset is my new favourite place. When Jess, Stevie and I first went location scouting out here I thought it was pretty enough - but on the day, after the family’s DIY venue set up combined with Jess’ crafting skills, this became the loveliest of wedding locations. All of the floral arrangements, rows of bunting, S&J feature lights and wedding favours (which were framed prints of Stevie’s art) were all hand made by the couple. Stevie even designed Jess’ engagement ring himself. Anything DIY is such a sweet touch and I have big respect for anyone who has the time management skills and mental capacity to make ANYTHING for their wedding. As for me, I got too stressed out and paid other people to make things for me which was major extra $$$$ :(
There was an abandoned farmhouse up the road from the venue which caught Jess’ eye as she loved this huge bougainvillea bush there, so we battled constant attack from sticks, thorns and barbed wire to get the shot, although her dress’ hem really copped it.
Their vows were both super sweet and I only cried just a little bit. I love love you guys, I know that term is waaaay overused by wedding photographers but seriously, even if we never meet before your wedding day, I WILL be tearing up during your ceremony because true love just really gets me goin’. These two were no exception.
Congrats Mr & Mrs Scott, it was my pleasure!
