Luxury wedding at Brympton House
Brympton House is a wonderful, romantic Somerset wedding venue. For wedding photographers it’s the perfect setting for a wedding. It is gorgeous inside and outdoors has stunning gardens. Elizabeth and Andrew’s wedding was one of our favourites from 2016. A luxury wedding in a beautiful church followed by a reception in a grand, historic house in the autumn with beautiful light, a beautiful bride and a handsome groom. Perfect.

People ask us what our favourite weddings are and we always say it’s about the people. Elizabeth and Andrew were a fabulous couple. Not everything went to plan, nothing ever does. At one point we had to get the sewing kit out after Elizabeth’s dress was torn but nothing spoilt the day. Elizabeth’s father has bought wine, port and champagne from her birth year. The wine was a very important part of the wedding day and no expense was spared. It seemed to go down very well. We even got to try some at the rehearsal dinner the night before while Andrew and the ushers were decanting it.
A Beautiful Somerset Wedding Venue
In the morning we met Elizabeth and the girls in the bridal suite before Carol went off to find Andrew who was having breakfast with the guests in the refectory. The church was quite a drive but worth it. St Mary the Virgin is a grand and impressive church. The vicar was lovely too and just let us get on with our job which is always a relief. There ceremony was emotional with the only one hiccup. The vicar explained how he had a system for remembering the couples names. He said he remembered them phonetically. It was easy this time as it was A&E. He then explained that in the UK – Elizabeth and her family are American – A&E stands for accident and emergency. “Let’s hope there’s no need for that today.” he joked “Now repeat after me, I Richard…”
After the ceremony a double decker bus took all the guests back to Brympton House while Andrew and Elizabeth travelled in style in a vintage Rolls Royce.
We just managed to get the family line ups and some portraits before it started to rain.
An Emotional Wedding Day
Back indoors the table plan was made from beautiful bespoke plates. The guests took their places and Elizabeth and Andrew were announced in. The speeches were emotional but there was plenty of laughter too. Following the wedding breakfast the cake was cut and everyone moved over to the stables for the dancing. Elizabeth’s father took centre stage after the first dance and sang to his daughter which was a touching moment.
We headed off with the party in full swing. Here are a few of our favourite images. If you would like to see more we have a gallery of the full wedding on the wedding portfolio page.
