I photographed Emma and Jonathan’s wedding on Wednesday 14th July 2021. In common with a lot of wedding these days, this was one of several dates organised. Originally set for the previous year, the restrictions caused by the covid pandemic saw their wedding postponed until this third date. In the morning I met up with Emma, at her parent’s beautiful cottage set amongst the Somerset countryside. It was a glorious hot day, one that makes the English countryside looks its best. The quintessential garden venue could well be Gants Mill, in the village of Bruton. Set amongst the rolling farmland, this family run wedding venue boasts a purpose built gazebo for outdoor wedding ceremonies and the most amazing botanical display in its formal garden. The wedding breakfast was hosted in the marquee which benefits from views of the floral exhibition. As with all of my photographic coverage, the majority of the day was photographed in the day’s natural flow, without instruction or intrusion. The exceptions being of a few family and friend groups shot that had been requested by the bride and groom, and also a few unposed portraits of the happy couple as they roamed through the Gants Mill’s orchard. This understated documentary approach allows for a very unobtrusive presence providing plenty of lovely candid shots of wedding attendants enjoying the day. One of my favourite parts of the day, was following the speeches when Emma and Jonathan with their gorgeous little boy explored the garden as the evening sun cast a warm glow over the flowers and plants.
