Barn wedding, Chelvey North Somerset

North Somerset Bristol candid natural wedding photographer

Lizzie & Marcus’ day was really special. They tied the knot at their family church in Chelvey near Nailsea and had their reception at home framed by the beautiful countryside of the family farm. Surrounded by the green beauty of the North Somerset countryside and the family farm’s animals, the barn served as a perfectly rustic wedding space.

After the ceremony, we made a stop at Nailsea court for some photos of the bride and groom walking in the grounds. Although now a private residence, we were very lucky to be able to visit Nailsea court thanks to a family connection. 

In the barn

I love a good barn wedding and even better when it’s on the family farm. You can feel that connection means so much more to the bride and groom. Marcus being a keen cyclist meant that bikes took centre stage in the wedding décor alongside Lizzie’s love of classic books. With beautiful florals from The Floral Potager, Lizzie’s books made up the centre pieces. The bride’s brother created the table plan with original drawings from Lizzie’s favourite books.

It’s your day

Lizzie & Marcus had a traditional service in St Bridget’s Anglican church in Chelvey. The couple opted for very few photos of the ceremony preferring to experience it fully in the moment. This was the first time I’ve had this request and it definitely took a moment to register with my trigger-happy finger! However it was wonderful to enjoy the ceremony with my own eyes instead through the lens (just this one time).

This was a conversation we had prior to the wedding day. Knowing this going into the wedding meant I was prepared and knew what Lizzie & Marcus wanted. This is why it’s important to communicate your wants fully prior to the big day and to add all the details to my questionnaire. This means I can be where you want me to be on the day. I can prioritise what you want me to prioritise. Your priorities are my priorities! I may offer my suggestions and back the corner of the wedding day’s most emotive parts. But at the end of the day, it’s your day so make sure to share what’s important to you. We settled on a few photos of Lizzie coming down the aisle, signing the register and the newlyweds leaving the church. I am literally your cheerleader and will celebrate whatever bits you want me to!

Golden hour portraits

The sunny day made for absolutely glorious photo opportunities. Natural moments of Lizzie & Marcus’ little guests running around enjoying the table and lawn games. And great light in the day means I got the thing all photographer’s covert; golden hour! We took a walk at sunset to get the dreamy portraits the newlyweds were after. 

Always ALWAYS schedule time on your day to come on a wander with me at golden hour. Its my absolute favourite point of the day once the pressure is off you both and you can take a little moment together. That being said, the impact of green space is not lost on me either. I really love the effect taking a walk in nature has on my couples. It really does inspire calm and natural moments that allows me to capture some really candid photos between you two. Seek it out as a priority!

The newlyweds finished off the party with karaoke & a silent disco in the barn. A perfect day! Congratulations Lizzie & Marcus✨

The Speech House, Forest of Dean

The Speech House Forest of Dean candid Wedding Photography

Tom & Gemma made the wise decision of choosing The Speech House in the Forest of Dean for their wedding day. The impressive Gloucestershire venue was originally built in 1669 as a hunting lodge for King Charles II and it went onto be the Forest of Dean’s courthouse. ‘The Verderer’s Court’ within The Speech House is both beautiful and rich with history; over 300 years ago it was the scene of many judgements. The Speech House is set in the heart of the Forest of Dean, one of the only surviving ancient woodlands in England. Of course, we couldn’t resist a little wander into the woods to capture some of the beauty the Forest of Dean has to offer…

Tom & Gemma’s March wedding day was a few days after the spring equinox but just before the clocks went forward. I will always plan the days’ photo sessions around the best times of the day for light. I’m a big believer in using natural light wherever possible. I love the candid and gentle images it helps to create especially at sunset! With limited hours for natural light at this time of year, we prioritised golden hour and got that gorgeous glow we were after. I loved being a part of this magic day- thank you both!

Venue: The Speech House, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire
