Wedding photography at St Audries, Somerset – Lisa and Darren
One of the best things about being a Somerset wedding photographer? Maybe being able to shoot wedding photography at St Audries.
Lisa and Darren chose the perfect venue for their summer wedding. I love shooting wedding photography at St Audries because it is simply a stunning wedding venue.
Set in 100 acres of scenic deer park, with panoramic views that stretch across the rolling Quantock Hills. As far as the Bristol Channel in fact.
The gothic manor house is breathtakingly beautiful. Therefore, both inside and out St Audries gave me many spectacular backdrops to photograph Lisa, Darren, and their guests.
The Couple & Family
Now, these two certainly didn’t race to get married. Together for 18 years, they had three children before finally deciding to tie the knot.
It was lovely to see how exciting it was for Lisa and Darren’s children to have the opportunity to be part of mum and dad’s special day.
Lisa looked stunning in the dress she bought from Rookery Bridal.
I must mention Lisa’s friends because I’m sure you’ll agree they’re a generous and talented group of people.
Lisa’s friend Brandon styled the bridesmaids’ hair, Lisa’s friends Tanisha and Charlene did all of the makeup. Besides all this, Charmaine also styled Lisa’s hair and arranged all of the flowers.
Lisa’s friend Colin ‘blinged up the dress’ and Lisa’s friend Alison made the wedding cake.
Above all, this wedding was a real team effort. And if you need any proof of that, take a look at the image below.
The sight of Lisa and Darren’s mum’s high fiving each other after the ceremony was fantastic. In fact, it was my favourite image and moment of the day.
Amongst my other favourite images of the day were when I got to whisk Lisa and Darren outside quickly. There I was able to take some lovely portrait shots in the hay baled fields around St Audries.
They are so gorgeously quintessential English country wedding shots – so romantic, and certainly ensured Lisa and Darren had a day to remember.
Who we worked with
It’s always great to work with other professionals in the wedding industry and this was certainly the case with Darren Jack wedding films. They made a fantastic film about Lisa and Darren’s day.
It was certainly a lovely family-friendly wedding for this pair at a beautiful venue, surrounded by wonderful people.
Congratulations to Lisa and Darren for getting married. And for creating such a memorable day for yourselves, your family and your friends to remember.
It’s working with lovely couples like Lisa and Darren and getting to do wedding photography at St Audries. In fact, it makes being a Somerset wedding photographer the best job in the world.
