April showers? Not a chance! April the 11th had me driving down to Brent Knoll in Somerset (yet again…!) for the beautiful outdoor wedding of Helen and David.

Helen and David had booked their wedding at the Woodlands Country House Hotel in leafy Brent Knoll. This was a new venue to me, so I had been down a few weeks before to do a site visit and plan the wedding photography throughly. The hotel itself is relatively small in size, but offers a fantastic venue to hold more intimate weddings. A beautiful set of sweeping stairs provide an excellent backdrop for wedding group photographs, while the trees on the lawn allowed some shade for our bride and groom portraits.
The thing that really struck me about Woodlands Country House Hotel, was how amazingly accommodating the management where. Bouncy Castle for the kids (and not just kids…)? Outdoor wedding ceremony on the terrace? Fire pit on the lawn? No problems here!
The fun didn’t end there either, Helen had decided to ditch the traditional wedding shoes and gone for funky red Converse boots, while the home made wedding cake was decorated with a very man-friendly Lego theme. Everyone enjoyed their day at Helen and David’s outdoor wedding, and in the evening I set up the popular fancy dress portrait studio while a four piece rock and roll band ensured the party lasted until the small hours.
A great wedding for Helen and David, and a happy wedding photographer in Somerset
