Here is some of the photography I provided for Isabelle and Kenneth from their Somerset wedding at St Audries Park. They were married on Friday 14th June 2019 in the Victorian Orangery within the venues generous gardens. St Audries Park can be traced back as far as 1086, when it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book. Set in the rolling Quantock Hills, the estate has had a few owners over the years. Some with links to William The Conqueror. Though it was not until 1849 when another Isabel, who was given the estate from her father, took up residence at St Audries with her new husband, Sir Alexander Bateman Periam Acland-Hood. They commissioned architect John Norton to carry out a programme of renovation and extension, this included new frontages allowing for the Great Hall and Minstrels’ Gallery. The work culminates in the beautiful mansion we see today. Throughout the years the estate has separated, the land was sold to the tenant farmer and the country house now belongs to the company Country House Weddings, a collection of high end venues that includes Gosfield Hall, Leez Priory and Clearwell Castle. I started the day’s coverage with the bridal preparations, though before the exchange of vows, Isabelle and Kenneth, performed a traditional Chinese tea ceremony with their parents and close family.
“Kenneth and I are absolutely thrilled with the photos”
“You captured some lovely moments and we are so glad to have had the benefit of your eye and skill.”
