The Best Wedding Day at Hestercombe Gardens, Somerset

B&J had the perfect wedding day at Hestercombe in August, the bride arriving with her dad in a beautiful pale blue classic car, having a few moments to calm her nerves in the wood-panelled drawing room, before walking through the rose gardens to the famous Orangery where the ceremony took place. I love the Orangery photographically, the light is so beautiful there. The bride looked stunning in her Wed2B wedding dress and carrying her white flowers by Dahlia Florists. After the ceremony, the guests had fizz and nibbles on the lawn, and we quickly went through the group photos on the steps in front of the orangery. I whisked B&J off for some private couple photos before the wedding breakfast, making full use of the glorious gardens at Hestercombe. The meal was held in the venue's barn. There was a little bit of a sunset later so we snuck out again for ten minutes to make use of the golden light. Then it was time for dancing, the couple had practiced a few moves with me at couple photos so were brilliant at first dance. I provided the photos to the couple within a few days and they were over the moon. The groom joked that he wanted to print off all 1225 photos! A couple of days later he sent a pic of the pile of prints that had arrived!
