Last Saturday I had a lovely day photographing Jessica and Paul’s wedding in Stoke Bishop and their reception, in one of my favourite local venues, Hunstrete House.

It was a gorgeous sunny day and Jess and her family were enjoying a glass of champage when I arrived to take some shots of their preparations.

Everyone was surprisingly calm and relaxed (which is not always the case!) and we had time for a few shots on the lawn (with the ladies managing an elegant tip toe walk so as not to sink in to the grass in their heels!) before I went on to the church to take some shots of Paul, his best man and ushers.

After the ceremony, we headed out to Hunstrete House. Guests enjoyed drinks on the lawn while Jessica and Paul enjoyed a quiet walk around the grounds for a few shots and then joined them for some champagne.

I have been teasing Jess and Paul about how long they are away for and I won’t mention publically all the countries they are going to before I next see them again – but guys if you have logged on while you are away, a big hello and here are a few images to tide you over!:
