Somerset Wedding at Clevedon Hall – Georgina & Antonio

The 23rd September 2017 was my first visit to photograph a wedding at Clevedon Hall, Somerset. It is a Grade II listed mansion, built in 1852 utilising a loose Jacobean Revival style. Originally named Frankfort Hall, it was designed and built for Conrad William Finzel, a local businessman who owned one of the UK’s largest sugar refineries. Over the years it has changed hands a few times and has been used as a private house, hospital school, telemarketing centre, and now as an exclusive wedding venue.

“Thank you so much for photographing our big day so beautifully.”

 

Today is was to host the wedding of Georgina and Antonio. I started the photographic coverage with the bride as she arrived at Clevedon Hall, to apply the finishing touches to her wedding day ensemble. I then caught up with the groom as he waited for his bride down the road at St Andrew’s Church. Following the ceremony the guests joined the bride and groom at their drinks reception on the lawns of Clevedon Hall. After mingling with their friends for a while, we took a few family group photographs. The bride and groom also requested a few portraits to make the most of the gardens at the hall, before making their way into the wedding breakfast. Some amusing and heartfelt speeches followed the food service and the evening celebrations got under way, coaxed by a little assistance of the plethora of personalised limoncello bottles. I left in the night after the bride and groom had their first dance and the guests had joined them on the floor to dance the night away.

 

“They are exactly what we wanted, candidly capturing the mood of the day. We’ve had lots of positive feedback from the family and friends we have shown.”
