Alternative Wedding Photography at Widcombe Grange in Taunton.

The lovely Jess and Rob got married in June at the Widcombe Grange, Taunton. They had planned for a relaxed day which involved everyone coming for drinks and lawn games around the pool, before they went and got ready into their wedding gear. It was totally refreshing to see all the guests arrive and watch everyone be so relaxed without the rush of travelling to a venue and getting ready elsewhere. I know that isn’t for everyone but it suited Rob and Jess’ personalities perfectly! Rob and Jess then disappeared to get ready in the house in a couple of rooms away from each other! It had already rained most of the week so I was really hoping it would clear for their day as they were getting married outside, in the middle of the lake.  True to form, you can’t have everything with the English weather… it was beautifully sunny for their cocktails on the lawn but rained for their wedding ceremony! Which made for quite the scene with everyone gathered round umbrella’s whilst they got married. I think at one point a kind guest popped their brolly over my head as I was getting pretty soaked!!

Once married we had a lovely walk around Widcombe Grange beautiful grounds for some couple shots. I think it’s fair to say Jess and Rob weren’t that keen on doing group shots and couple shots and that is exactly why they had hired me, to be documentary. I did manage to grab a few of the important ones which they wanted of course! For dinner they had a BBQ with scrummy salads and roasted vegetables, all eaten by the open fires sat on hay bales wrapped in checked blankets. Minimal speeches also ensured that they could crack on with the dancing too. Jess is a dancer and certainly knew how to make some shapes on the dance floor. I always forget sometimes that I have a camera in hand as I end up dancing with people! Although I left fairly early into the evening I’m pretty sure they all stayed up partying until the late hours. What a great way to end a brilliant day.
