Wedding Photography Orchardleigh House. Charlotte and Ben’s hot summer wedding.
Orchardleigh House in near Frome in Somerset is a fabulous venue for wedding photography and the views from the gardens feature stunning rolling hills and valleys that make a perfect backdrop for portraits of the bride and groom. It was a really hot day and as with all the weddings I shot this year with the heat wave, I decided to photograph the bride and groom later in the evening when the light was softer and the temperature was cooler.
Charlotte and Ben are such a lovely easy-going couple and I really enjoyed taking their picture as we strolled around the gardens and grounds in the golden evening light. Charlottes veil was long which I love and with a bit of wind in the air can become so animated they take on a life of their own which is exciting to capture in the lens. I also had a real giggle with the bridesmaids and groomsmen capturing the bridal party in various stages of hilarity and throughout the whole day I had a wonderful time documenting all the special moments of which there were so many. A really wonderful relaxed beautiful wedding and a real privilege to be part of.
I’m a Somerset wedding photographer and my style is best described as natural and unobtrusive. My approach on the wedding day is to be as discreet as possible in order to capture the story. By being unobtrusive I am able to capture real smiles and joy, whether this be guests chatting, laughing, kissing and hugging, the groomsmen and bridesmaids messing around and letting go, to the bride and groom looking at each other from across a room. By taking this approach, I am able to provide a authentic documentary wedding story with all those special moments that would otherwise go unnoticed.
