Last friday I photographed Sam and Les’ wedding at Bailbrook House in Bath. It is such a nice wedding venue up on the hill above Bath and has lovely views across the valley. I got there a bit early to wander around the grounds and find which trees still had some leaves on them for Sam and Les’ couple shots – luckily there were quite a few and it was a mild, dry day which was great.
Upstairs, Sam was having her hair done with daughter Katherine – who decided to get back into bed after she had had her hair and make up done! The girls then shared that classic pre-wedding snack – chips and spicey potato wedges (well there’s nothing like carbs to calm a nervous stomach!).
Luckily for Sam, a close friend of hers is none other than silk wedding dress specialist Catherine Miller (https://www.silkspecialistcatherinemiller.co.uk/) so she arrived to help Sam into her dress.
Meanwhile, downstairs, Les was chatting to guests in the bar and looking quite relaxed. Everyone then sat down for the ceremony during which Isla, another of Sam’s close friends, did a lovely reading and Sam and Les seemd to really enjoy themselves!
Afterwards, guests enjoyed Champagne and we even managed to take their family photos and some shots of Sam and Les outside in the grounds – not bad for mid November!
Here are some pictures from their day:
