Who could have imagined that I’d have the privilege of photographing the wedding of someone I’ve seen grow up from a newborn baby in to a beautiful young lady? Not me, for sure! After all, I was a geeky scientist for a large part of my career, though a passionate photographer on the side. So it was one of those twists and turns of life that saw me become a full-time wedding photographer followed some years later by the news that Paula was now engaged. Paula told me that she always wanted me to be her wedding photographer so how could I possibly refuse such an offer!
Paula and Oliver both live and work in the financial district of London so this was an obvious choice for their London engagement shoot but their wedding was over on the other side of the UK in the beautiful Somerset countryside venue of St Audries Park. With acres of parkland, herds of roaming deer, the nearby Quantock Hills and overlooking the Bristol Channel, St Audries Park is an amazing setting for a stylish wedding. Add in the nearby quaint St Etheldreda’s Church then you have what a lot of the American guests described as the English wedding they had always imagined. Maybe ‘Four Weddings’ did make an impression after all!
So after quite some time and much procrastination here are some of my favourites from your wedding. Happy anniversary!
