CPS Booklet

Rachel and Ben had put a lot of time into planning every detail of their wedding, and the day itself was every bit as perfect as they had hoped. Brympton House in the hamlet of Brympton D’Evercy near Yeovil is one of our favourite venues as it is so picturesque and unique. The wedding ceremony was held in the Dower House, followed by drinks reception on the lawn. After the sit down meal and speeches (including a brilliant best mans speech by Guy), everyone headed over to the beautiful Orangery for the afterparty. Rachel had the brilliant idea of organised a photo booth in the bar which was complete with built in wind machine, and had the guests piling in all night.

The rest of the evening was spent eating wedding cake and bacon sarnies to keep energy levels high for hitting the dancefloor while the incredibly talented Time Out band played. Bens best man Guy had mentioned in his speech about Bens infamous own style of dancing which he described as ‘a cross between Michael Jackson and a Russian Cossack dancer’, which we got to see when Ben hit the floor. It truly was brilliant to watch and I hope we have managed to do it justice in the photos!

Henley and I are originally from Surrey, having lived in London and then moved to Devon three years ago, so can totally understand why many of the weddings we cover in Devon, Dorset and Somerset are couples from London and the home counties looking for a countryside wedding. Kat and James however went one step further, and flew over from Adelaide, Australia for their wedding at St Audries Park in West Quantoxhead, Somerset having seen it on the internet.

James was originally from the UK and met Kat at a church in Adelaide when he was travelling the world, and moved over to Oz to be together. A lovely touch for the day was that their Pastor Danny also flew over from Oz to conduct the service, and having known Kat and her family for years, gave a very personal and moving service.

Kat’s parents are wedding photographers in New York and it was plain to see Kat had a natural flair for looking fab in front of the camera – her father taught her well!

Kat and James both looked gorgeous and along with Kats two wedding dresses, gave us some fantastic photo opportunities.

    Dear Henley and Laura,

    Thank you so much for the outstanding job you did for Kat and James. When we looked at the photos there was an overwhelming sense of reliving the EMOTIONS of the day. The strong graphic quality combined with the unobtrusive observation and recording of the event was a breath of fresh air for me. Your images combine the love in a family snapshot with the graphic and technical quality of truly professional images.

    I envy you your breathtaking locations and the freedoms that the digital age has opened up for you. The ability to change ISO ratings at will in order to capture a nuance of light would have been a daunting task with the equipment we used to use; the ability to isolate a detail with zoom lenses… I could go on and on. Suffice to say you made an old warhorse reconsider his “retirement” and consider doing a few weddings here and there.

    Having entered the ministry 5 years ago, I assumed my photo career was over, and it really is, but can you imagine the first time I rolled up to a wedding to marry the couple rather than photograph them!!!? I am thinking of maybe straddling the fence a bit. It might not work for any number of reasons, but thank you for allowing me to see the possibilities.

    I know I am rambling now but, having seen the highlight clip at FX Films and read the list of ten reasons why they love working together with you I envy you your professional partnering. You obviously know how special that is.

    Wishing you well in every part of your life,
    Dave Scarallo
    (Kathryn’s Dad)
