Brympton Somerset wedding | John & Jason
If I had to pick one word to sum up this wedding I think it would be “joyful”. Weddings are often stressful affairs – there is so much to organise ahead of the big day, and sometimes this carries over into the day itself – but John and Jason and their families and friends sailed through it all very happily, and a hugely enjoyable time was had by all.
Of course, when your wedding takes place in the splendid surroundings of Brympton House in Somerset and is ably run by Michelle and her team, it’s bound to be a pretty special day. The weather was a bit cloudy but fortunately it didn’t rain so everyone was able to enjoy the gardens.
The guys got ready in the main house and then their civil ceremony took place in the 15th Century Dower House.

After the ceremony we did the group photos while the guests relaxed and chatted, and then I took Jason & John for a walk around the gardens to get some photos of just the two of them. As I think you’ll see from the pictures, this is often a very emotional moment for many couples, as it’s the first time they have had to themselves since saying “I do”, and the realisation that they are married sinks in! It’s my job to be alert for that and capture it in camera!
The wedding breakfast was held in the elegant Grand Ballroom in the house itself – after speeches and toasts the party moved to the Stables for the cutting of the cake, dancing, and as a grand finale, fireworks!
