St George Beckington

St Georges Beckington

Living in such a quaint little village as Beckington has many benefits, being away from the hustle and bustle of a town or city, close to the wonderful Somerset countryside and having a beautiful village church. Another little piece of historical information for you. Beckington Abbey was probably given this name by one of its wealthy residents, was built about 1156. In 1347.

St Georges Church has just covered its 700 years as the 700th anniversary of the first Rector of Martin de Sutton, his name is one of first on the list inscribed on the wall in the bell tower. 

I have been apart of many weddings in this fine Saxon Church, as the official wedding photographer it’s literally 5mins down the road from my home in the village, so very handy.

I had the privilege of photographing a beautiful wedding at St Georges only a couple of weeks ago, such a beautiful and romantic wedding celebration.

Being part of Rachel & Peters Wedding day was wonderful, it was such a pleasure documenting their fabulous day with photography.

Then off to the wonderful Wedding Venue on the Orchardleigh Estate, the beautiful Orchardleigh House where I’m the official wedding photographer. 

I wish them all the love in the world, I have added just a few of the wedding photos from this lovely wedding here on the Somerset border just outside the incredible roman city of Bath.

Military Wedding

Military Wedding

Military weddings are such an amazing wedding day, the uniforms always add that extra-special touch to any event but a wedding, fantastic!

I have photographed many such weddings through my years in the wedding photography industry and the Wedding for Jonathan and Abigail at the wonder Guyers House (Corsham) was one such wedding.

I arrived to take a few candid shots of Abi and her gorgeous Bridesmaids, Father and Mother of the Bride before heading off to the quaint little church of St Patric’s in Corsham, every close to Guyers House.

When I arrived the lads had already started to practice their Military salute for the Bride and Grooms exit from the Church, after grabbing a few shots of this spectacle I then moved on to take reportage images of guests arriving etc.

Abi arrived in a stunning Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, her wedding gown was absolutely stunning, she looked sensational. 

I never interrupt the flow of the bride’s arrival, I want those beautiful natural photos.
The ceremony was a wonderful occasion, fantastic when the priest asked the congregation (any reason why this couple cannot be wed) all the lads drew their swords from their scabbards and stood to attention.

Fantastic confetti images as the Bride and Groom walked beneath the Military Salute followed by all the guests throwing confetti.

Guyers House looked wonderful, a beautifully decorated marquee, awaited the newlyweds.

I spent a few moments with Abi and Jonathan, taking them for a very unobtrusive stroll around Guyer House gardens, a few group photos for the happy couple, Abi through her bouquet to the girls which always makes for a fantastic photo opportunity.

I stayed until after the speeches, their first magical dance together as a married couple and then made my way home.

I have added a few of their wonderful wedding images here, beautiful couple, beautiful wedding
