Last Saturday I spent the day in the lovely Mendip area very near where I live. It was a really short drive up to Rachael’s Gran’s house in Blagdon where she was getting ready and by the time I arrived, the rain was easing a little bit.
The views from the living room over the lake were amazing so Rachael had a very tranquil calming view to look at as she was having her make up done!
I then headed over to Churchill to meet up with Rod and his best man. Everyone was very calm and relaxed – even when Rachael’s brothers arrived really late for the ceremony (after driving to the reception venue first by mistake!!!) no one was stressed out and there was a lovely happy atmosphere.
Rachael’s Grandfather read a beautiful poem during the ceremony and there wasn’t a dry eye in the church (including me!) and on a less emotional note, Rachael and Rod were given several gifts from the Vicar (including a miniture car for Rod who is a car fanatic!).
After the ceremony, guests spent some time chatting to Rod and Rachael and then we headed off for a few shots in Rod’s parents’ garden up the road, before heading over to Cheddar for the reception at the Rodney Stoke Inn.
Here are a few of my favourite shots:
