This was a mini festival in the part of the country that has become famous for festivals, Somerset! When the weather is good you have to love this part of the country, when it’s not there’s a lot of mud, being a Somerset wedding photographer means you have to deal with what ever is thrown at you. Thankfully this wedding day was blessed with amazing weather and dry fields!
Amy and Gary met near Bath when they both lived on narrow boats, it’s a cool story that you’ll have to get from them. It resulted in this incredible day.
I’m told that Gary isn’t that emotional, but he couldn’t hold it together at all before and during the ceremony. It’s nice to see some real emotion, weddings usually bring that out of people. The reception was held in a field near the town of Frome in Somerset. Amy and Gary spent days putting this mini festival together with the help of friends and family, it was a real DIY wedding and the venue wasn’t really a venue, if you know what I mean? It was just a field with a barn that they really liked the look of. They turned it into a venue, powered by a tractor that was rigged up to a generator to provide light and power for the bouncy castle pump. You really can do a wedding anywhere!
Again, it was a stunning day with lovely people. By the end of the evening someone had managed to throw a whole glass of red wine all over me and my camera – that’s supposed to be a good thing right?
