My first wedding of this year’s season, I had the great pleasure to capture Dean and Rachel’s beautiful wedding. It took me to the pretty West Dorset village of Powerstock and the beautiful medieval Brympton Manor House near Yeovil.
My day started with meeting Dean and his family at the pretty village pub, the Three Horseshoes Inn (www.threeshoesdorset.co.uk) in Powerstock. Dean grew up in the village of Powerstock, so it was very special to Dean and Rachel to marry in the village. Dean a wore navy blue suit and matching yellow ties and button holes with his brothers, which included bright yellow craspedia billy ball flowers, foilage, thistles and “Brew dog” (www.brewdog.com)bottle tops.
At 1pm, Rachel, her father and her bridesmaids, George and Ava, along with page boys Sebby and Luca arrived at the church. Rachel looked stunning and elegant in her dress (www.trousseau.co.uk) and little cream bolero. Rachel’s bouquet and bridemaids flowers consisted of bright yellow, orange, pink and purples, roses, peonies, gypsophila flowers (www.lavenderblueflowers.com).
After an intimate wedding service with close family and friends, and taken by the lovely Elaine Marsh, we made our way to Brympton House. (www.brymptonhouse.co) A truly stunning location for a wedding with a beautiful long gravel drive leading up to the house. The wedding guests were greeted with drinks and canapés which were served in the great hall, with a magnificent open fire. We made the most of this glourious location and all popped out on to the steps and lawn in front of the house for the group photos and couple shots. A fabulous, scrumptious sit down three course dinner (www.dine with style.co.uk) was served in the dining room, followed by the speeches. The tables were all decorated with paper blossom trees which were made by Rachel. They finished the table decorations beautifully.
After dinner, the wedding celebration continued in the stable barn within the grounds, for Rachel and Dean’s first dance and evening reception where more friends joined them to share their special day.
