Wedding at Brympton House - Kate & Simon

Wedding photography Brympton House

brympton house wedding

Wedding photography Brympton House at it's best! Kate and Simon’s wedding at Brympton House was truly one heroic affair to remember! Full of magic and light, this couple spared no detail when it came to a day full of romance, love, laughter and joy. It had all of the qualities you want to photograph captured in one lovely wedding. The love and laughter shared between this couple, made this country house castle the perfect place for Kate and Simon to say “I do.

"Martin is fantastic. He perfectly captured our superhero-themed wedding at Brympton House in Somerset. He was lovely and personable and always swift to respond. We would highly recommend him." - Kate & Simon

The moment Kate stepped out of her bridal suite, in her stunning white gown accented with floral lace, I knew this Brympton House wedding was going to be special. Special moments continued to highlight the big day - especially the moment her Father saw her for the first time. His adoration for his beautiful daughter was just as stunning as Kate.

A traditional English ceremony, full of love and support from family and friends, there wasn’t a dull moment the entire day - even the moment they sealed their love with a kiss was purely magical. This lovely and fun couple from London were truly wonderful to photograph. The day was full of laughter and fun, especially since the Groom writes for stand up comedians! Their superhero wedding theme brought the entire day to life at Brympton House, where I have had the distinct privilege of photographing other weddings, but where this one stood out as exceptionally amazing.

Kate and Simon’s unique day was full of sweet moments, especially when all of the children in attendance arrived in full superhero fancy dress. There was also a blessing by the Groom’s Mum at The Temple. Before the meal, they shared a simple private moment with just the three of them and myself. The first dance was the funniest I have ever seen, and the band consisted of wedding guests including the best man!

What I love about this venue is that every part of the day takes place in a different place on the grounds. The ceremony takes place in the Castle House. A cocktail reception with games is hosted on the South Terrace. The gorgeous wedding reception takes place in the ballroom, and the cutting of the cake (created by Cakes by Samantha) happens in The Great Hall. Finally, an evening dance kicks off at The Stables - all elegant, classic, timeless places to hold one posh wedding affair to remember. All of the places were stunningly decorated and stylised by in house florist (Emily) and in house stylist (Ellie).

It was a pleasure to work along with Rich from I Do Film Weddings and Jacob Boodrie who was assisting me on this epic Brympton House wedding. Their fun-filled superhero wedding was also featured on Easy Weddings website.

Crowcombe Court wedding - Amanda & Paul

Crowcombe Court Wedding Photographer

It was my second time as Crowcombe Court wedding photographer. Crowcombe Court is standing proudly at the edge of Quantock Hills in Somerset. The magnificent house at Crowcombe Court was built in the 1730s in the English Baroque style from beautiful amber coloured bricks with Bath stone for the pilasters and frontispiece. It is an enchanting and delectable place where joyous memories are engraved in the building's history.

Such memories were created by Amanda and Paul on their wedding day. I started the day with Paul and the groomsmen in the village pub; after that, the boys headed to the Church of the Holy Ghost where the couple chose to have their wedding ceremony. Photographing the last touches of preparing for the big day, I followed the bride and bridesmaids from Crowcombe Court to the church.

Wedding at Crowcombe Court

The vintage decorations added to the Edwardian theme of the wedding whilst the vibrant colours illuminated the scenery. The bride wore a mesmerisingly beautify dress with delicate pearl touches from Bridal Emporium. I photographed the most diminutive detail including the moment when the couple gazed into each other's eyes their hearts brimmed to the full with happiness - thrills of elation swept through the church as the couple said their "I do's.

Furthermore, the newlywed bride and groom led their guest to Crowcombe Court where they chose to have their reception. During the drinks reception, the guests were jazzed by the jazz band where the groom's father starred on the drums.
Humorous speeches lightened up the couple's path to their new life as husband and wife. They cut the cake and whirled on the dance floor to ceilidh band as I proceeded to finish the day with some evening shoots that will finish their wedding album nicely.

Wedding at Coombe Lodge

Owing to the theme of a unique wedding at Coombe Lodge, I've decided to bring you the wedding of Carly and John.

Carly contacted me after finding me as a recommended supplier by Coombe Lodge, and I'm so thrilled she did. It's always a privilege to be a part of something so special, and with the individuality that came with this wedding - including the wedding dress by Cocoa Couture in Cheltenham and pictures by Bristol's Suspension Bridge - came a day full of treasured memories. They married in Clifton, before moving on to Coombe Lodge for the reception.

The cars came courtesy of De Gournay Wedding Cars, and the cake from Pretty Amazing Cakes. Both helped to create a one-of-a-kind feel for the day. To match Carly's beautiful dress, her hair was done by Clair Swinscoe Hair. The wedding rings were designed by Dagons Workshop in Clifton Village, and the music came by way of The Wedding Players. The flowers were provided by Lucy Anna Flowers. All these things added to the day to make it memorable, but perhaps the most memorable part of all was this:

A vintage plane made a few circles in the air, much to the surprise and enjoyment of the guests! Carly organised it as a surprise for her new husband, who was overjoyed. Their first dance was something to be remembered too; perfectly choreographed and well prepared.

A beautiful sunset framed the final moments of the day, and what a day it was! I wish Carly and John all the best in their future together.

"Martin photographed our wedding at Coombe Lodge in May 2015 and was absolutely fantastic. He arrived early and stayed with us until really late, we have a fab album, all our photos, iPhone album and he even surprised us with film clips during Church and of our first dance. Martin captured every moment for us, everything we asked for and much more! We took the option to have a photo booth in the evening and I'd highly recommend that as well - our guests thought it was great fun!"

Nathan and Catherine decided to go for Coombe Lodge wedding. They were married recently in a beautiful ceremony at one of my favourite wedding venues.

Nestled at the foot of the Mendip Hills, within the North Somerset & Bristol area, Coombe Lodge has breathtaking views across the Chew Valley. It is in a picturesque rural location yet easily accessible by road just a few miles from Bristol Airport. As a wedding venue, Coombe Lodge promises exclusive use of the house and gardens. It's a tranquil oasis, ideal for wedding receptions and ceremonies.

Coombe Lodge extends wonderful views and backdrops for a classic affair, and Nathan and Catherine's was nothing short of beautiful.

Currently living in New York, both Nathan and Catherine are originally from the UK and chose to honour their roots by coming home to celebrate their union. Luckily for me, their wedding was not the first time I had photographed them; I also captured their "graffiti" engagement session in Bristol.

There were lovely pops of blue and bronze throughout the day, with teal dresses and unique flowers and bracelets. Catherine looked stunning in her dress from Teokath of London and her make up by Cat Parnell. The couple chose Nina Bromham to sing them through the day and into the evening.

It was a wonderful celebration, with guests flying in from all over the world. After incredible hilarious speeches, there was a beautiful sunset that afforded gorgeous evening shots of the newlyweds and their guests.

It was a truly lovely wedding day to be a part of, and I wish Nathan and Catherine all the best in their lives together.

Fusion Wedding at Old Down Estate

Wedding at Old Down Estate

old down estate wedding-31

James and Nazuk were married in what is perhaps one of the most visually stunning wedding at Old Down Estate I've ever had the pleasure of capturing.

Held in the lovely Old Down Estate, the wedding took place in August. The heat, the blue sky, the flowers and the joyous atmosphere all came together to create a truly memorable occasion. Naz and her bridesmaids celebrated with a henna party the night before, donning beautiful art work on their hands. She prepared for the big day at her parents' house in Bristol. James, along with his groomsmen, wore traditional Indian robes for the ceremony. It was such a special occasion; seeing cultures coming together really makes fusion weddings some of my very favourites.

Fusion wedding at Old Down Estate

After some very touching speeches that left many in tears, or at least on the brink (myself included!), the bride and groom left the reception early by way of a lovely vintage car from Ken's Kars. The sun began to set on the day as Naz and James left, husband and wife at last, and as I watched them drive away I was filled with a sense of hope. I wish Naz and James all the luck in the world!

"Martin was absolutely fantastic at our wedding at Old Down Estate. His style was perfect with a mix of reportage/natural shots, some innovative artistic stuff along with the normal posed ones. We were extremely glad that we booked Martin. All our photographs speak of a wonderful story. The photo album nailed it for us - we had much more than we expected. Highly recommend Martin" - James & Naz

Outdoor wedding at Coombe Lodge

coombe lodge outdoor wedding_40

One of the loveliest couples I've had the pleasure of meeting, Brian and Elspeth decided to have an outdoor wedding at Coombe Lodge. I always enjoy going back to some of my favourite venues, and this beautiful wedding was no exception.

The bridge and groom both spent the day getting ready at the venue, which is one of the many things I love about Coombe Lodge. It's wonderful to have everything in one place. Elspeth chose Powder and Paint for her makeup, Brides at Home for her dress, and their newlyweds decided on Dancin' Easy for the band.

It was such a magical day, topped off by one of the more unique first dances I've ever seen. If you know anything about the lyrics 'Because I'm Happy' then you can guess how much fun it was! As well as the great music, the bride and groom had a photobooth and some creative evening portraits. They even decided to cut the cake outside, which was something I've rarely seen before.

I had such a brilliant time at their wedding, and I'm so thrilled to say that come September I'll get to see the happy couple again; I'll be photographing Elspeth's sister's wedding too!

"We booked Martin as our photographer for an outdoor ceremony at Coombe Lodge, near Bristol, and were absolutely amazed by both his service and the quality of the images, and he also managed to surprise us with a few small gifts thrown into the package. His style was perfect with a mix of reportage/natural shots, some innovative artistic stuff along with the normal posed ones. We were extremely glad that we booked Martin and he's now about to be used again by one of our family for their wedding later this year. We'd highly recommend him."

Brympton House Wedding

Spring wedding Brympton House

brympton house wedding-01

I truly enjoy being part of Brympton House wedding and I love sharing photos of the amazing couples I work with. It’s so enjoyable going through the photographs and choosing which ones to share and thinking back over the fun memories. I especially like it when somebody sees my work and decides I am the photographer they need.

"Martin is an amazing photographer and we would thoroughly recommend him to any of our friends and family. He is really easy to work with, a genuinely nice guy and he really made sure our day was captured as we wanted. He came over to show us his work and offered loads of personal touches like the photo app and slideshow of the day. We look forward to our next shoot!" - Stu & Kat

Brympton House is a Medieval Manor house in Somerset. The ideal fairy-tale wedding venue near Yeovil. Considered to be the most beautiful house in England, the history of Brympton starts in the 13th Century when the land was purchased by the D’Evercy family. One of the most spectacular features of Brympton House is that we have a unique space for every part of your day, keeping your guests’ wowed all day long.

Spring wedding photography Brympton House

Almost two years ago I spent an incredible day photographing stunning Brympton wedding. Stuart and Katherine saw the images and got in touch; they’d be tying the knot at Brympton House too!

The weather was fantastic, everything you could ask for from a country house wedding; blue skies and fluffy white clouds drifting by like oversized confetti. I think my favourite photograph is the groomsman is the very stately hallway doing their very best stag impressions. It was the very image that won my first Fearless Photography Award.

There was live music in the evening (Funkty Dumpty) which is always a great way to entertain guests and, in my opinion, fills the dance floor so much faster. I’d also like to give credit where it’s due to Ellie and Liz from Tie the Knot who ensured the venue and flowers were as beautiful as they should be.
