Orchardleigh House Wedding Photography
The beautiful Mel & Thomas were married in Somerset on the wonderful Orchardleigh House estate in June, after days of beautiful weather, the skies weren't looking too special however as the morning progressed so too did the weather.
The ceremony was held at the gorgeous church at Lullington, my favourite church in this area, its light and has a beautiful atmosphere, Brian was to take the service, a lovely minister, he is always full of fun and his address is always a pleasure to listen too and is guaranteed to have the guests smiling as he speaks from the heart, with many experiences for the Bride and Groom.
Melanie and her girls were getting ready for the big day in the Benita suit at Orchardleigh, a stunning room, just perfect for the Bridal preparations.
Thomas and the lads were down stairs helping with the preparations for the reception room, both the Bride and Groom were very relaxed however there was a buzz of excitement throughout the house as all the guests anticipated the event.
We unobtrusively captured the morning and Tracy and I left for the church to ensure we captured the guests, family and of course Thomas and Mel's arrival.
The ceremony was lovely, two reading from close Family, a very warm and romantic service.
When we arrived back to Orchardleigh the sun was shining, the light was beautiful, I love photographing wedding's in the sunshine, the colors, contrast making for stunning photography.
I took the happy couple for a stroll around the grounds, capturing those natural reportage images.
Melanie & Thomas asked to have a few formal groups which we took in different locations on the estate, I have had the privilege of providing my wedding Photography at this beautiful house since the beginning of its journey as a wedding venue, I live 5 mins away from this wedding venue, I know the house and grounds as if it was my second home.
The evening was beautiful, warm with the sunshine, this gave everyone the perfect opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking grounds.
We stayed through until Melanie & Thomas danced for their first dance and then we left this wonderful wedding and made our short trip home.
Melanie and Thomas were heading off to the USA to spend three wonderful weeks touring the country, we wish them both all the love and luck in the world.
I have added a small selection of photographs from this wonderful wedding at Orchardleigh House.
